NYC: Element (350 ft, 35 story) & Ten West End (350 ft, 31 Story)

Ok these two towers are right next to eachother on the same block. They are both currently under construction... Sorry I don't have a rendering on Ten West End yet.


Element:

From Brack Capital:


A land plot for development of 35 story condominium in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Element will feature an exclusive package of amenities unique to the New York area, including; a basketball court, three pools, gym, yoga room, parking garage and 24 hours doorman/ concierge. Construction will commence in September 2005 and will be completed by July 2007.

Nice design, but not really tall.

The shorter towers are complimented by the taller towers.

In my opinion, you need variety.

Good point. I really like New York's denisty but I have to say that New York needs the World Trade Center back and some 1500+ footers in the area.

I agree.

It's the families of the victims that have hit the brakes on progress in New York.

They should be ashamed of themselves for hijacking our best towers from being rebuilt.

From the NYPOST Real Estate Section 'COLUMBUS NEW WORLD' (February 25, 2006):

The 35-story glass-tower building has 198 units, including five townhouse residences, and is more than 50 percent sold.

Prices at Element go from about $815,000 for a 791-square-foot one-bedroom to $2.7 million for a 1,476-square-foot penthouse.

Amenities include cold storage for fresh-food deliveries, a wine valet service with Morrell & Co. and a three-lane, 60-foot indoor lap pool with a whirlpool and a children's pool.

There will also be an indoor half-court basketball area, a racquetball court, a children's playroom created by FAO Schwarz, children's gym classes provided by Jodi's Gym - which holds classes and parties for posh tots around the city - and landscaped outdoor space, including a "great lawn," a meditation garden with yoga classes and an outdoor lounge.
Wow more than 50% sold units already? That is really good.

Nice looking building by the render. Nice forms...

All these small NYC projects could be combined.

^ That is actually a good idea. I just wasn't sure if to do that. That is why I try to place two small towers in one thread at a time.

I know the Centria got its own thread... but I couldn't find another one close by to combine.

I just don't know what I will do with a title though if I combine all of them.

OK fair enough . If you get them combined by a mod or if you decide to do a thread in the future with a number of different projects, maybe title it "NYC Construction Updates" or "Current NYC Projects".

These 200-300 footers are quite nice architecturally and we are definitely interested in them, but they have 1/3 to 1/2 the shelf life as the much larger projects.

Anyway...

555 West 59th reminds me of an old radio, from the 1940s or 50s or a radiator.

Yes, NYC needs to look really nice due to this building being constructed At 350ft, it will barely be noticeable on the skyline anyway.

I just worked out why it is called 'Element'.....a diagram of an electrical element:
