Wow...that's one hideous mess. Let's hope this gets a re-do.

@El Greco I don't think they chose the final layout yet. We just know it will be developed. There's even a proposal with no towers at all, but an art center, I believe.

BTW that extension will look ridiculous. It clashes with the original building horribly.

Oh right. Thanks.

I think the extension looks great, a bit like Tate Modern.

It's been said before, but the architecture along the High Line is phenomenal. I can't wait to check out 508 myself, but it looks perfect.

Retail investor plans glass box for 144 Spring Street: PHOTOS
Lot represents one of the last vacant development sites in Soho
http://therealdeal.com/blog/2013/12/...street-photos/





Quote:
The structure faced with 14 panes of glass approximately 26-feet-high each, resembles the well-known Apple store on the General Motors Building plaza at 767 Fifth Avenue. That should come as no surprise, since the Soho project’s plans were designed by the American architecture firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, which designed that Apple store and many others around the world.

They should build it. It looks nice!
A modern touch in an old area.

New York | 161 Front Street Tower | 70m | 230ft | 31 fl | U/C



Peter Poon-designed Seaport hotel to open next year
http://therealdeal.com/blog/2013/12/...pen-next-year/

Quote:
31-story Fairfield Inn hotel is on pace to open next year at 161 Front Street near the South Street Seaport.

Peter Poon Architects is behind the 230-foot-tall property, according to recent filings with the Department of Buildings, and it’s separate from SHoP Architects’ design for a 50-story hotel-condominium tower and boat marina in the area.

Construction began on the lot, which sits a block from the South Street Seaport historic district, back in 2011, as previously reported. Back then, the Fairfield hotel, a division of the Marriott brand, was expected to open this year.

Design Changes Revealed For Two Hudson Yards Towers



Quote:
Hudson Yards released some new renderings last week in advance of a new exhibition, but the exhibition itself seems to reveal some different, much more interesting, renderings. NY YIMBY stopped by the display at the Time Warner Center and found that the deign for the SOM/David Childs-designed residential tower, aka the Equinox Tower aka 35 Hudson Yards, has changed—a lot. It went from a curvy, 900-foot tall tower with a series of setbacks (designed to look like a draped skirt) to a 1,000-foot tall tube. The new renderings show a tower that gently twists from a square base into a completely straight cylinder. The Tube is juxtaposed by the very square 55 Hudson Yards, formerly known as One Hudson Yards (and formerly owned by Extell).

The design for 55 Hudson Yards isn't that different from what Extell originally proposed. The first rendering shows it with a fancy curved crown, but the models in the exhibit show it with a flat top, which will likely be the reality.

The other new building that's revealed is located on a site that Related acquired in October. It's north of the North Tower, and will be known at 50 Hudson Yards. It has a boxy, step-like thing going on in the model.

50 Hudson Yards will be a supertall, possibly going higher than 1,100 feet:

Revealed: 50 and 55 Hudson Yards



Quote:
Related has new renderings up at Time Warner Center depicting The Hudson Yards, and in addition to dramatic changes for the Equinox Tower, a model depicting 50 and 55 Hudson Yards has been revealed. As YIMBY reported in early October, Related has expanded their presence in the neighborhood dramatically, acquiring the entire block to the north of the railyards. The two new buildings increase the site’s scope by nearly 4 million square feet.

...55 Hudson Yards will still stand a similar height to the Coach Tower, which will be approximately 900 feet tall. 55 Hudson Yards will be joined by 50 Hudson Yards, aka ‘The McDonalds Drive-Thru Tower,’ which is another major addition to Related’s assemblage. That building will crack the 1,000 foot mark, and appears slightly shorter than the Hudson Yards North Tower.

55HY redesign is ugly. The old design was pretty unique, but now it will be just another box.
Oh and I still hate that tower from the first pic (far right). It looks like a tall fat person with triangular tits when upside down...

With all the attention taken by the big projects, how about something for the average New Yorker. Nice design too I might add for something that's not in Manhattan

In my opinion the new Equinox tower is still nice but the first design was better, I think I don't have to tell you my opinion about 55 Houdson Yards.... And 50 Houdson Yards is pretty good
What I want to say everytime when a project on the highline is showed here: Amazing! I can't mind one bad project there. It soon will be the best place to watch modern, elegant and simply amazing lowrise architecture! And the projects in the rest of New York, for example The Pyramid are also amazing and it is hard to find an tasteless building in this Thread for me + most of the projects here have a unique design.... I am really looking forward to a trip to New York sometimes in the future, hopefully next year or the year after, to compare it to the trip in 2010. New York is the only city I want to visit one more time. Amazing
