Thanks for the link. I'll have to reserve judgement until I see it in person. In all these pictures it just looks like any other glass being used on buildings all across the country- not in any way stunning or special. But it wouldn't be the first time a buildings materials looked 100x better in person than in photos. I do really love the shape though .

It looks like there are some glass panels with a dot pattern over them, while others have vertical lines running through the pane. Is that done on purpose?

There will be a new tallest outside Manhattan

Construction Update: 42-12 28th Street
http://newyorkyimby.com




Excavation is now underway at 42-12 28th Street in Long Island City, which will soon become the tallest residential building in Queens. The project’s architect is Goldstein, Hill & West, and the site’s developer is Heatherwood.
While permits indicate 42-12 28th Street will eventually stand 58 stories and 596 feet, they do not account for the bulkhead levels atop the building; the zoning diagrams reveal that 42-12 28th Street will actually rise 646 feet and 8 inches to its pinnacle, making it significantly taller than any existing residential high-rises in Long Island City. Indeed, at 646 feet, the skyscraper will become the tallest apartment building in either Brooklyn or Queens, and will stand a mere twelve feet shorter than One Court Square, which has dominated the Court Square skyline all by its lonesome self for over two decades.

With 477 units, 42-12 28th Street will also add a significant number of new residents to the burgeoning Court Square neighborhood, which is seeing a surge in development. In terms of square footage, the building will have 5,878 square feet of retail, and 392,824 square feet of residential space.
Next-door, Heatherwood recently completed 42-17 27th Street — aka 27 on 27th, via Curbed — which has 142 units. Rockrose is another major participant in the area’s renaissance, and The Linc LIC — a 790-unit tower which was recently completed — will soon be joined by another skyscraper, at 10 Court Square.
Height-wise, 10 Court Square will still play second-fiddle to 42-12 28th Street, as the former will only stand 50 stories and 509 feet. The race upwards is just beginning in Long Island City, and the momentum in Court Square is going to become readily apparent as the skyline will be completely transformed over the course of the next decade.

Given its scope and height, 42-12 28th Street will make a significant positive impact on the neighborhood’s street-scape and its skyline, helping the push towards the creation of an urban, livable, and walkable node in Court Square. While no completion date has been announced, permits were partially approved on March 4th, and construction is clearly underway.

Park Avenue soon will have a new limestone tower to join the ranks of the street's architecturally noteworthy buildings, from Lever House to the Seagram Building.

Yeah, nice to see something more classy than a glass box start popping up around! Crown and a partial stone facade, sign me up for more

Actually we've got two traditional-architecture towers from Stern. One of them will stand on the other side of the park.
Is that new direction in NYC/worlds highrise architecture?

Yeah, I remember there was one near the Woolworth and the recently-announced one. Looking at London I think that there will be more towers with addition of stone or other non-glass facade elements to make it look more unique. NY will most likely get a lot of stone to make it look more fitting with what is already there, while London likes aluminium and steel lately.

Yeah. But considering new historical architecture is more and more popular that might actually lead to some kind of fashion even outside of NYC and USA.

I still think 30 Park place is the best postmodernist (I wouldnt call it neoclassic) proposal in the city. It's the least gimmicky of the bunch, I would say.

I'll hold out judgement until they're all finished (assuming they will be). I think it will really come down to quality of materials. If a developer decides to cheap out, any one of these may end up looking tacky.

Given the price range they're competing in I cant imagine any of them will pursue cheap materials.

Completely agree. These building are being marketed to Billionaires. They can't mess around with materials with any of these projects especially when they are competing for their $$.

Fulton St. to open June 26; West Side’s 7 line still targeting ‘fall’


http://secondavenuesagas.com/2014/03...argeting-fall/
Quote:
As time marches on and the subways enjoy record-setting crowds (more on that later), various capital construction deadlines are fast approaching. As we know, two megaprojects — the 7 line extension and the Fulton St. Transit Center — are due to wrap this year, after nearly seven years of construction. Due to the delays plaguing the escalators and elevators at the deep 34th St. station along 11th Ave., the Fulton St. ribbon-cutting has leap-frogged the 7 line. According to MTA Board documents released yesterday, Fulton St. will open to public on Thursday, June 26, 2014. Save the date.
Meanwhile, mitigation work and acceptance testing continues on the Far West Side, and the MTA is still committed to delivering the 7 line in the fall, nearly 11 months later than scheduled. For now, the official word is still “November,” but according to an engineering report contained within the MTA’s materials this week, that date could hit December if problems aren’t resolved. The winter solstice is December 21. So the MTA has three weeks in December in which it is still technically fall to deliver the project. Hold your breath.
Finally, over on the East Side, the Second Ave. Subway continues to be on pace for a December 2016 revenue start date, but the documents detail some slippage. Construction crews have burned through approximately half of the project’s planned contingency days, and a few delivery dates have been pushed back. Still, until we hear otherwise, December 2016 it is. That’s only 33 months away, and the real estate market is responding in turn.

Oh I didn't see the first project before! I guess it's the fact that they have an actual color to them and setbacks, which in my opinion should be mandatory in NY again
