What are they going to do with that blank wall? They can't leave it like that.....

I don't like this one at all.....out of place, so close to our baby ESB....what a shame.

From the construction pic updates so far, looks like the glass cladding may be turning out better than the renders posted on page 1 of this thread.

Here's hoping

That reminds me of a funny story. Seattle has like 300 or something. Well, when they ordered them, they didn't realise that they were about two inches too high to fit in the bus tunnel under downtown. So now the tunnel is closed for two years as part of a retrofit. It's actually kind of funny...

325 Fifth Avenue almost sold out

07-NOV-05



Although it is only about half way up, the 50-story condominium tower at 325 Fifth Avenue is about 99 percent sold out.

The mid-block tower between 32nd and 33rd Streets is diagonally across Fifth Avenue from the Empire State Building, which from its inception has had no tall neighbors, until now.

A handsome, light-blue glass curtain wall is beginning to be applied to the new tower, which will contain 250 condominium apartments. It is a joint venture of Continental Properties, which is headed by Mark and Steven Fisch, and Levine Buildings affiliate Douglaston Development, headed by Jeffrey Levine.

Apartments will feature 10-foot-high ceilings with floor-to-ceiling windows, open-plan kitchens with separate pantries and many units will have balconies. Four penthouse units will have wood-burning fireplaces and double-height living rooms.

The building will have a doorman, a 24-hour concierge, individual storage units for purchase and on-site valet parking. The building also will have a 10,000-square foot health club with a decked indoor swimming pool, a screening room, a children’s playroom, a catering kitchen, a lunge with marble fireplace, and a business center and residents can have dog walking service, maid service and room safes in every apartment.

Stephen B. Jacobs, who designed the Hotel Ganesvoort, is the architect and Andi Pepper has designed a two-story lobby with a bamboo forest and waterfall.

The tower is expected to be ready for occupany late next year.
