That frame looks so beautiful and authentic. I can't find enough compliments for the design. I appreciate that some people do understand this famous style and how a decent revival of this style might look like.
By the way I also like the concrete building next to it (the texture of the concrete makes the building so artistic), together they make a nice contrast.

Love the renders, I mean, apart from the design, which is awesome, the renders are also of a quality I almost never see since I joined this forum. It all looks so real!

Let's take a minute and realize that this is going to be one of the best buildings constructed in the last 60 years and will probably stay like that until the next century.

The Fitzroy To Bring Historic Charm To Highline Neighbourhood

Quote:
The Highline neighbourhood in New York is a developing area with real estate rates that often dwarf that of NYC itself. One new addition to the area will be a boutique residence located at 514 West 24th Street. Standing 10 storeys high, The Fitzroy is set to bring 14 residential units to the neighbourhood at the selling rate of $2,850 per square foot on average.

you guys seem to be starving for more renderings. I'm surprised this wasn't posted already. This rendering shows its proximity to the High Line:

I guess the frames of the windows and the rest of the copper elements on the exterior will change their color in turquoise, I like them shiny as they are on the last render, but I am sure they are going to look beautiful even when they change the color in turquoise.

Its too bad that of those the only one who is likely to become the next superstar is Selldorf. Stephen Alesch is great (weird and quirky but great) but like Thomas Juul-Hansen, another great architect in this club, has really made his name in commercial interiors. That being said it is refreshing that people who do a lot of interior work are making more of a splash on the architectural scene. For a while it was just David Rockwell but I think this is what is single-handedly bringing character and scale back to NYC, because the training and mentality of interior designers is philosophically different than architects. Interior designers are taught to respect and adhere to classical principles of scale, harmony, rhythm, balance, context, etc., where architects have, for 80 years or so rejected those notions.

Peter Pennoyer is unlikely to ever build anything on a large scale unfortunately, though his building on the UES is fantastic. And Morris Adjimi I think, though a solid architect is perhaps too identified with New York, in the same way that Arquitectonica is identified with Miami or William Pereira with Los Angeles.

the ceramic is always a good option, enduring, also resistant. the building is really nice, but a little dark

Art Deco is famous for using high contrast colors (in this case the red-orange metallic luster of the copper, combined with the dark green color of the terracotta facade tiles).

The article from skyrisecities a few posts above suggest that the building might be completed by late 2016, or early 2017. It is 10 storeys tall and looks delightful. I can only imagine the copper and the terracotta (well chosen genuine Art Deco materials) surrounded with daylight. The building cooperates with the concrete building next to it perfectly.

Sweet and dear New Yorkers, there's a guy in the south of Europe highly interested in the construction of this little piece of highest quality art. Is there any visible progress?
