I was expecting a pencil tower.

The facade details on the first three floors of this building remind me of the tridents on the twin towers. Hopefully Kushner will proceed with this tower. I have expected something very different from Zaha, but she delivered something much better than what I have expected. Her design actually respects it┤s location, while still having her own style written all over it. :-)

A slight hint: read the thread title properly.

I'm as big of a Zaha Hadid fan as you can get but something about this design just doesn't work for me. Glad that Anbang has backed out, though; as much as I try to keep away from politics here, I never want to see Kushner have success.

I'm no fan of Kushy either, but I'm eager to have a 1,400' Zaha with a sloped, peaked top, and a stunning fašade. I look forward to news about other financial backers. I could see Related coming on board.

I think you took pictures from a completly different building. I see the Chrysler looming behind the depicted tower. No where that is on 5th avenue at all.

Edit. If they cut the building, I wonder how they are going to distribute the load on the foundation properly. I am still kinda feeling that foundations are sometimes done to support more then they need to.

Yeah, I managed to get the Socony Mobil Building which is 10 blocks south.
666 Fifth Avenue itself has some serious bulk as well.

I like how the Zaha redesign will add a lot of new texture and detail to the ground floors of the tower and give that strecth new character. It currently just looks dull and mundane. Same applies for the remodification of that tower on Madison or Lexington avenue. Hopefully more of such buidlings will be redone and they add small sized shops in the base. Because that and details details is what makes a city vibrant and lively, not huge footrpint occupying blocks of towers that only have a lobby entrance.

I agree, German.

I would assume it's because Kushner is part of the chaotic and failed Administration currently in place.

They seem to have tow design options for this tower. One with less arches on the base and a rather phalus like shaped top, and one with more details and arches on the base and a rather setbacky top treatment. The second design option also has a more interesting mall entrance treatment, it looks like it sucks people into the base. Hopefully the latter will be done.

The Devil's in the Details for Kushner Companies' 666 Fifth Avenue
Quote:
Originally purchased by Kushner Companies in 2007, the 60-year-old office tower located at 666 Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan has long been the dream project of convicted felon and current real estate magnate Charles Kushner. As father to Jared Kushner, the spouse to 'First Daughter' Ivanka Trump, the elder Kushner's landmark redevelopment project has been caught in limbo as investors await a final decision on any potential conflicts of interest that could arise now that the Kushner name has become directly linked to the Presidency.
