5WTC will probably be a mixed-use hotel/residential.

Update: The Hegeman / Cook + Fox

Architects: Cook + Fox Architects
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Project Name: The Hegeman
Client: Common Ground Comunities
Completion: 2012
Size: 64,469 SF

The Hegeman, designed by Cook + Fox Architects, is a residential community in Brownsville, Brooklyn that provides housing for low-income and formerly homeless individuals. Developed by Common Ground Community – an innovative non-profit whose mission is to end homelessness – the Hegeman Residence also provides a range of on-site social services in a model known as supportive housing.

Situated on a former vacant site, its location automatically alters the context of the neighborhood and creates higher density and street life, factors that Jane Jacobs often sited for making neighborhoods safer and more accessible. The six-story building is designed with textural articulations to bring visual life to the building that is otherwise constrained with NYC’s zoning regulations. Large windows frame views of the street and provide access into the interior courtyards and green spaces, providing a welcoming and open entrance. The courtyard also provides opportunities for a future urban farm.

The design for the Hegeman emphasizes healthy living, restorative and biophilic design, and best practices to save tenants money on energy bills. The building has many advanced features including: entry-activated control systems and individual room-metering capabilities that give control over energy usage and infrastructure has been placed for a future co-generation system.

Approximately 3,400 square feet of greenery on the roof cool the building and handles storm-water run off from the site. Solar panels are also located on the roof for exterior lighting requirements. Individual units are finished with durable, non-toxic materials, designed to save energy and water. These measures may earn the building an anticipated LEED Silver certification.

That is called globalization. I hate it in some ways. I hate it for example in case of cars (I love american classics, hate new european-like small shit) and architecure (I love art deco, and beautiful simplicity of 60'-80', hate pretenders that are following asian styling...)
Everything is mixing now... you may in some way experience the ovule of other countrys culture at your place.. but the cost is high - you destroy your own culture.

No, NYC will thankfully never look like Dubai because NYC will never be just a strip of supertalls. NYC has grown organically over a century not overnight. It is not possible to take all of that away and nor would it be allowed even if someone could. NYC will also be home to buildings that have defined and will continue to define how we look at and feel about architecture and vertical structures. Dubai, for all it's magnificence, will never steal that crown from NYC. They are two entirely different entities and because of it's massive headstart, Dubai will never catch and eclipse NYC.

Dubai will never be like NYC mostly because NYC is well planned. Manhattan Grid made streets the most important part of a public space and that's just enough.

Another day, another Kauffman skid mark on the great city of NY. Sad day for New York.

Permit Issued for, Yes, Another Gene Kaufman Hotel
Wednesday, September 19, 2012, by Sara Polsky



"Development should be underway soon at the lot shown above, 125 West 28th Street, according to a new DOB permit issued this week. Unfortunately, that news probably isn't going to cheer up even those who've been waiting to see the empty spot filled, because the architect on the permit is none other than Gene Kaufman. According to the permit, the planned building will eventually rise to 202 feet and 18 stories, with 49,307 square feet of space. There are no renderings floating around out there that we've seen—anyone? the tipline awaits—but earlier reports identified the property as a 194-room Cambria Suites hotel."
