NEW YORK | 310 W. 40th St. | 122m | 401ft | 42 fl | U/C

This one is giving me agita. As always, New York YIMBY has the details:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Revealed: 310 West 40th Street



Quote:
Unfortunately, the new developments along 40th Street are also some of the least attractive buildings in New York City. Cheap cladding and setbacks predominate, and a row of uncomely 30-odd story towers already stare back at the equally unappealing Port Authority. Their new companion will stand 42 stories and 401 feet tall, and contain a total of 287 rooms. Abraham Noy of 310 Group LLC is the developer, and Nobutaka Ashihara is the architect.

One bright spot regarding the project is that it replaces a vacant lot rather than anything even mildly attractive. But other than that, the building’s facade will be a splotchy mess, capped by an awkwardly tall and thimble-like crown that will encase rooftop mechanicals.

Per on-site signage, completion of the tower is slated for September of 2016.
The best part is nothing significant was lost for the sake of this mutt.

And work is already underway:

Well, guess the shape is set in stone (no pun intended), but maybe they'll forego that random paint job? One can hope.

Not as bad as the first design, but still not my taste to say the least.

If this is the worst design of all the new development, that's actually saying something about the rest.
