Pier 40 soccer stadium envisioned





The multitude of problems associated with Pier 40 is pretty disqualifying for such a stadium but don't say they didn't give it a shot!

Michael Shvo Closes on Chelsea Development Site @ 239 Tenth Ave for $23.5 M.
http://observer.com/2013/08/shvoverl...te-for-23-5-m/



Quote:
Never one to play it safe, Michael Shvo, that showy relic of the last cycle’s boom years, has dropped a record sum on the site of a gas station in West Chelsea. The deal, which was reported to be in the works by The Wall Street Journal in May, has closed for $23.5 million, at some $850 per buildable square foot, according to a release sent out today. Mr. Shvo’s partner on the deal is Victor Homes.
Quote:
Mr. Shvo has resumed his new supercharged ways, trying to close on a development site at 100 Varick Street and eying one of Gary Barnett’s parcels at 16-18 W. 57th Street.
That 16-18 W 57th Street for the sale by Extell happens to be sitting between Sheldon Solow's 2 properties. Solow should make the move and combined those properties to build something interesting there.

c.1896 Bancroft Building Could Give Way To Modernist Box

Quote:
Neighbors launched a campaign to preserve the Bancroft Building, at 3-7 West 29th Street, an 1896 structure known for being the former home of Alfred Stieglitz's Camera Club. But while preservationists were making their moves, nearby Marble Collegiate Church has been making its own plans to replace the Bancroft Building with…this. (Thanks to a tipster for the rendering.) The Madison Square North Historic District stops just short (a half a block) of the site, so although the church's need for additional air rights might be a holdup to the project, landmarking is unlikely to save the Bancroft Building.
From this:


To this?

A design like that gives preservationists all the ammunition they need to stop new projects. That box is simply a lazy design.

Even if it does end up demolished, I have no problem with the design as long as the glass looks good.

Haha, this is 70s all over again, it's like they're not even trying anymore. I wonder if the architect looked at this and said "yeah, it's a good idea and I'm proud of it". It doesn't even fit there with those "setbacks".

That is quite obviously not a render of what will be there, it is just a placeholder to show how big and tall a building could be on that site.

From my experience, if we're getting renders like this one, it's pretty obvious that it will be mostly glass. It will most likely be a very dull box as well, without much uniqueness in the shape.

They should just remove the setback/podium and make it run in one shape from the top to the bottom, like the Seagram Building. Or maybe just a 1-level podium.
