Under the radar with about 6 floors to go, but Tectonic has your back.

Wow, this one shot up this summer. Very much looking forward to how it turns out.

Glad to see this magnificent building! I live about 5 minutes away, walking, this will certainly contribute to making east end an even more splendid place. Now if they could just renovate the promenade on carl shurz.

No. 20 East End Avenue Rises in Manhattan's Upper East Side


Quote:
Architect Robert A.M. Stern is known for a wide range of architectural styles, ranging from Postmodern works in his early career to the New Classical-style towers that have become his recent calling card. One such historic-inspired tower, Corigin Real Estate Group's No. 20 East End Avenue, is now nearing structural completion at the intersection of 80th Street and East End Avenue in New York City's Upper East Side.

Looks pretty good, I'd love to see the classical facade up close if anyone's passing by or finds a pic.

Those window frames always ruin the overall look of Stern's buildings. Looks great of course, but could look much better with different window frames. Peter Pennoyer, for example, uses different frames and they look much better.

Yeah, darker window frames would look better on most Stern buildings.

Still, a great quality New Classical tower there!

Now, imagine a person going to New York willing to see its real historical landmarks and...suddenly...sees this (and not only this one, some of them are so huge that you cannot possibly miss them while looking the skyline). I wonder what that person would think? Will it be amazed by all these new "Deco" wannabes? I know that if I get to see New York one of the first things on my list will be the genuine and land-marked General Electric Building. Certainly not the buildings with concrete-sandstone.

As NYC already has so many outstanding highlights and landmark towers, most new towers are mere fillers, anyway. And for Gotham City, clearly Deco-styled towers are the better fillers. While of course this can be done much better, as new designs like midrise The Fitzroy prove.

Maybe, but certainly not postmodern.

And just a little reminder that New York's contemporary modern architecture is stunning, especially 1WTC.

1WTC doesn't seem all that special. It's tall for sure, but well. I feel other towers are much more groundbreaking and interesting designwise.

The postmodern towers of NYC are usually alright and they are a befitting addition to the look and feel of the city. It just shouldn't get too many modernist boxes and freaky deconstructivism, both alienate the cityscape further.

I don't think that concrete-sandstone and PVC windows are a befitting addition to the look and feel of the city, quite the opposite. The city shouldn't get too many of these...but it already did.
