Here's What Peter Poon's 50 Bowery Hotel Will Look Like



Quote:
A construction fence rendering reveals that, unsurprisingly, the new Peter Poon-designed hotel at 50 Bowery will be a big glass rectangle, which should look especially jarring looming over the individually landmarked Citizens Saving Bank. If those two buildings could talk, they probably wouldn't have much to say to each other.

Poon's 22-story glass box must be doubly upsetting for the local residents who had fought (briefly, and unsuccessfully) against the demolition of the buildings that formerly occupied the site, which were thought to include the remains of a historic beer hall where George Washington once slept. Not only will those rumors now go unexamined, but Chinatown and Lower East Side residents will get another unwelcome glass tower instead.

If it doesn't have one yet, I believe the Jade Hotel deserves a thread in General Urban Developments for architectural significance.

Re: 350 West 39th Street

Another big West Side site could go for $100M
http://www.crainsnewyork.com/article...-for-100m-plus

Quote:
Another large development site in midtown’s far West Side is coming to market with a price tag in excess of $100 million.



A sales team led by Robert Knakal, chairman of the brokerage company Massey Knakal Realty Services, is bringing 350 W. 39th St., a low-rise building that could be replaced with a 300,000-square-foot mixed-use tower, to the auction block. The lot’s zoning allows for about 160,000 square feet of residential space and up to 50,000 square feet of retail. The rest of the building could be used as a hotel or offices, Mr. Knakal said.....read in link
This lot is a through block between 38th and 39th street. looks to have a nice sized footprint.

1 Vanderbilt Developer pushes tower proposal, without Midtown East



Quote:
A New York real estate developer whose plans for a skyscraper taller than the Chrysler Building next to Grand Central Terminal were delayed by the demise of Bloomberg's Midtown East rezoning, is now negotiating with the de Blasio administration for a path forward that does not entail a neighborhood-wide rezoning.

According to knowledgable sources, SL Green, which describes itself as New York City's biggest office landlord, has been talking to the city planning department about ways it can move forward with its proposal for a 65-story, 1.6 million square foot tower called 1 Vanderbilt, between 42nd and 43rd streets, without having to wait for a broader rezoning.

SL Green had no comment, though during a January earnings call, the publicly traded company hinted at this course of action.

“We are still moving ahead on all fronts with the expectation that this will be developed, the only difference being that as a result of whether the East Side zoning goes through or not, we may have alternate plans,” said Marc Holliday, the company’s C.E.O. “But I think we can accommodate that under several different scenarios, and that's what we are working through now.”

Quote:
Renderings have been posted for NYU’s new facility at 433 First Avenue; the building will soon be home to both the NYU College of Nursing, and a portion of the University’s College of Dentistry. Per DOB filings, the architect of record is EYP, though KPF appears to have led the project’s design.

NYU’s page on the site indicates the new building will span 170,000 square feet, which permits corroborate; the structure will stand eleven stories and 162 feet tall, allowing generous ceiling heights.

[...]

433 First Avenue’s facade will be glass and terra cotta, offering another example of the historic material’s recent comeback in New York City, where its usage is gaining significant visibility — perhaps most prominently at SHoP’s future 111 West 57th Street.

[...]

Completion of 433 First Avenue is expected later this year.

Is 50 Clinton a newly-built or a renovation?

When I first saw that NYU building, I was like "OMG not another cheap-looking low-rise with jail windows!" Then I realized this is an NYU building...

Rafael Vinoly's already played his emperors clothes 'new aesthetics' card in London (20 Fenchurch St.), I see he's aiming to do the same with the no less preposterous 432 Park Ave. Gotham deserves better.

Frankly, Vinoly is a terrible architect, imho. 432 Park Ave and 20 Fenchurch both are a disgrace to their respective cityscape surroundings. Not even Gehry or Libeskind act quite as autistic.

I love both buildings and there are many others who do as well. Give it a rest.

Why? So hyped architects like Vinoly will keep on dropping their stuff wherever we look?

I and many others won't accept that, whether you like it or not.

What are you going to do? Keep complaining on architecture forums to annoy the rest of us? That's gonna "stop" them from building what you, as a classicist, don't personally like?

All the complaining is getting seriously old across all the threads you do it in.
