Don't expect much.

Anyway, the buildings that will come down on the north side of the site (the brown one and the little white one) are worthy of the wrecking ball.

Still no true proposal to replace the beautiful Bancroft Building, but NIMBY has got his hands on a conceptual 55-story proposal from architect FR-EE. It's lovely.

I think if they have the available FAR to build this tall (strange design or not), this belongs in Proposed Skyscrapers.

What an odd design. Makes me think of things I have seen on the original Star Trek series.

I don't want this built because it blocks the ESB from a popular viewpoint.

For those who don't know 520 Mad., its best feature is a plaza with a waterfall and a huge piece of the Berlin Wall.
