Imagine having a job in construction!

They have all the benefits - being the first to know every detail about the job, actually building it, awesome views, etc.

Carlos, you should work for the NY Times as a photographer/editor.

Seriously!

You could use me as a reference if you are serious.
Your amazing attention to detail from the many fine photos would benefit any NY paper and provide the world with a unique perspective on urban living.

Then you could expand and cover other areas of development such as the 2nd St. subway or the #7 expansion to the W. Side highway.

Then they could send you across the river to review the development in Jersey City to compliment your skills.

Before you know it, you'd be flying around the world writing about development and urban issues.

You'd be on Larry King Live, Oprah, etc., then the book deals.

You'd become very significant.
No desk job for Carlos could keep him away from photography.

The sky's the limit!

Like the famous game show...

...Carlos - deal or no deal?

Now I can't choose which is the sexier; the tower's construction [IMG]http://www.**************/invboard/html/emoticons/wub.gif[/IMG] or Carlito [IMG]http://www.**************/invboard/html/emoticons/lovestruck.gif[/IMG]

If they don't hire you Carlos, I will....but for very much different reasons [IMG]http://www.**************/invboard/html/emoticons/wink.gif[/IMG]

...but thanks for the pic updates. Loving the cross bracing. This one is going to have so many interesting architectural features that will not make it just another dumbed down box *thinks 7 World Trade Centre*.

Cheers Carlos & thanks always.

I think it will look silly without it. We have to wait and see the finished product before we can really judge it. Once all those "screens" are up and the whole thing looks uniform I think it will turn out great. I can't wait to see what the building will look like when it's up and running at night.

^ the price ??? read on..


NEW YORK TIMES TOWER, NEW YORK, NY, USA
The New York Times Tower is a new development being constructed on the east side of Eighth Avenue, between 41st and 40th Streets near the Port Authority bus terminal (part of the 42nd Street development) in New York City, USA. The tower is the product of a series of joint ventures between the New York Times (NYT), Forest City Ratner Company (FCRC), ING Real Estate (part of the ING Group of The Netherlands) and the State of New York.

The design phase started in 2000 when NYT launched a private design competition by inviting 16 well-known architects to submit designs for the new tower; the final design was unveiled in late 2001. Land acquisition began in 2001 and the construction is due to start in April 2004. The tower is due to be completed by late 2006 / early 2007. The estimated cost of construction is predicted to be $850 million; part of this is to come from the Empire State Development Corporation (from a post-9/11 city regeneration fund, in the form of government Liberty bonds).

The 52-story tower will be 1,142ft high (including its spire), making it New York's second highest building. The tower will have 1.54 million ft˛ of office space, a 350-seat auditorium on the ground level overlooking a garden area, a rooftop conference center, a glass enclosed retail complex on the ground floor at the building corners on Eighth Avenue and two restaurants along Eighth Avenue underneath the proposed NYT newsroom. There will also be a landscaped birch and moss garden on the eastern side of the site and a rooftop garden with full-size maple trees.






NYT DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE
The design competition was entered by 16 invited architects, including: Norman Foster, Cesar Pelli, Frank O Gehry, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Renzo Piano and Fox & Fowle. The design chosen in December 2001 was by Renzo Piano and Fox & Fowle. The 52-story building itself will rise 748ft. In addition, ceramic screens along the outside will extend to 850ft and a spire will rise to the full height of 1,142ft. At the top will be a small grove of full-size maple trees in an arboretum outside a rooftop conference room. The lightweight spire will have no broadcasting or technical function, and has been designed to sway in the wind.

Two skins will clad the steel framework of the building. The first will be a glass curtain wall designed to give the building a transparent appearance while taking on the changing colors of the sky during the course of the day as light focuses on it from different angles. The second skin will be made of extruded white ceramic tubes carried on an aluminum frame, which shields the building's glass walls from the direct sunlight and energy-wasting heat gain that would normally require tinted glass. The irregularly-spaced horizontal tubes bounce daylight up to the ceilings, throwing it into the tower's interior. Work space and office partitions will stop shy of the ceilings allowing even interior offices to get some daylight. On each panel the tubes are interrupted at eye level, creating an open viewing space so the building occupants will not see the city from behind bars.
