Same. The ESB viewshed is wonderful and should remain on top of the fact that the proposal is just terrible. It also helps keep Downtown and Midtown relatively spaced apart.

This area has been forlorn for years, but is rapidly bouncing back. It has many stunning buildings such as these across the street from the site.





This is the parking lot which is the site for Yimbys supertall mystery building. HFZ's site can be seen beyond the lot.

I know. Kill me. That ugly, misshapen monstrosity, even if it's just a "vision", would do nothing to enhance the area either.

I agree, but on the positive side, we're losing the filthy brown POS on the 30th St side if the site, and we might get something nice and pretty tall.

This looks all to familiar. At least New York is putting buildings there and not just converting them to lots of parking garages

The more I think about it, this may be a cheap box if Freidman retrains control. His projects generally squeeze every shekel .

^ Using the word "shekels" is a common expression for people living in New York. There's nothing anti-Semitic about it. Man this PC crap has definitively gone too far ...

Now that's cool.

But the design for the building on this thread shows no respect or creativity by either the developer or the architect. They're replacing a beautiful 19th century building with an ugly 1950's POS.

Since this is still a sub-prime area, Many developers go the cheap route. Friedman certainly has that proclivity. It would be nice for someone to invest in the future because this area has massive potential.

Today from the site of Yimby's mystery tower.

In the name of shekels.
