I was gonna say the same thing. Kaufman!!!??? I'm shocked! Pleasantly so I might add.

Took another read, atelier & co actually designed the building. Kaufman's the architect of record. Kudos to him taken back. Nice building still.

In Contract: The Hudson Spire Site



Quote:
Following The New York Post’s report that Tishman Speyer expressed interest in the site of the conceptual Hudson Spire, Massey Knakal’s page on the listing has just been updated; the lot is now in-contract, indicating a buyer has been found.

Per the Post’s scoop, it would seem likely that Tishman Speyer has indeed acquired the Hudson Spire site; what’s most interesting about Tishman’s involvement is their apparent desire to acquire Sherwood’s adjacent parcel, as well. Combined, the assemblage could support a tower of approximately 2.5 million square feet, making it one of the largest buildings in New York City.

Tishman Speyer’s involvement with the Hudson Spire is particularly intriguing given the firm’s recent history with the Hudson Yards; Speyer actually won the original bidding process for the railyards, before the deal collapsed and Related was awarded the project. The old concept renderings for Tishman’s railyards vision come from Montroy Andersen DeMarco.

This is NOT Gene Kauffman. The building is designed by Atelier & Co.

False, read the article

"Advisors said that the Bryant Park location will be at 34-36 West 38th Street, and that the design will be inspired by early 20th-century McKim Mead & White buildings, executed by Gene Kaufman (project architect) and Atelier & Co (exterior and interior designer)"

Reminds me a little of 48 Wall Street:

photo found on DaVinci Meetingrooms
Or, like a former Downtown building with a neoclassical temple on the roof (anyone know the name?)

The problem is, unless they use phenomenally pricey materials, this could easily wind up less a postmodern masterpiece, and more like The Grove mall in LA (for those that haven't been, it's basically shopping Disneyland, and it gives me an aneurism just walking by). If there's any chance of value engineering, I hope they consider a simpler design altogether.

This could be the most authentic-looking neoclassic building NYC's built in decades. Proper proportions, kitsch-less decoration, good placement/size of windows...Beats Stern any day.

Hudson Yards Is Gonna Get Another 700-Foot-Tall Tower
http://ny.curbed.com/tags/451-tenth-avenue



Quote:
A developer is planning a 700-foot-tall tower for the Hudson Yards area—the second in as many days announced for that swath of the far West Side. Here's the down-low on this one, as per Crain's: Maddd Equities (yes, with that many d's) just secured a parcel on the northwest corner of Tenth Avenue and 35th Street and plans to erect a 415,000-foot-structure there. The lower levels will contain a high-end hotel or office space, while apartments would occupy the upper floors. The developer is also working on a hotel project across the street at 450 Tenth Avenue, which will be a Four Points Sheraton, as well as a 140-unit
New York | 451 Tenth Avenue | 213 m | 700 ft
Sites are starting to get snapped up for development within the Hudson Yards district at a fast clip. Yesterday a plot on 11th Ave and 38th street was snapped up that can yield a 700’ tower and today this parking lot was purchased to make way for another 700 footer.

I don't care what the article reads. Kaufman doesn't possess the skill nor the know-how to design a building of this caliber. Atelier & Co on the other hand does.

Any idea if that's an actual proposal, to renovate 1221 6 Avenue?
