More high line craziness

Studio/Gang's Zany, Angular High Line Tower Is Gonna Happen
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/0...appen.php#more




Quote:
It's baaaack. The edgy, High Line-abutting tower by big-name Chicago architecture firm Studio/Gang is going to get built after all. After its mind-boggling renders were unveiled in late 2012, genius, New Yorker-profiled architect Jeanne Gang's first New York City project, a 10-story office building on Tenth Avenue between 13th and 14th streets futuristically called Solar Carve, ran into some roadblocks: namely, community opposition from groups like the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, which went hand-in-hand with a decision from the city's Board of Standards and Appeals not to approve a zoning variance that would make possible its bigger-than-permitted size. But wait: after its rejection in February, developer William Gottlieb Real Estate revised the application for a fourth go-around, not requesting any additional FAR (basically more interior space given the lot size) but just asking for minor variances related to the project's height and use of setbacks. And voila, a tipster tells us the BSA just gave a thumbs-up to the project. Reactions: in an e-mail blast, GVHSP said it's "glad" the building won't be larger; meanwhile, the Architect's Newspaper reports that the Gang is "excited" about the news and is working towards completion in 2015. Whew, that seems soon.

What a pleasant surprise! I was so bummed when I heard it would never see the light of day. Glad they were able to work something out and that this killer design will rise. Chalk another one up for the High Line and its architectural murderers' row.

Good news! There should be a Highline Thread for all of these fantastic Boutique Office & Condo developments.

May not be pleasant, but it's definitely a thrilling place and there's no where like it outside of Asia (sorry piccadilly). Even a quick walk through it is enough to get a rush, unless you are a local I suppose where it probably would become a place to avoid. But there's nowhere that screams big city more than times square in NYC. I'd prefer it to be more architecturally interesting (can you imagine times square with futuristic structures?), but the new paving will probably lead to a more user-friendly uniform look, reigning in some of the visual clutter.

It looks fine to me. Just because you are a such an outspoken fan of boring glass modernist boxes doesn't mean most people share you view. The average person doesn't want their cities full of that alone anymore.. that's the past, that's 1960's Park Avenue (most people are not enthralled by that). Would you prefer all glass walls or window grids on every new building built today? Sounds like a snooze fest to me. Random cladding may fall from fashion, but there will be something else to replace it that isn't a simple glass facade, sorry. The trend is back to a more visually exciting style of architecture, isn't that obvious? People can't relate to architecture made for robots and cyborgs, they like something for the eye to latch on to. Why are Paris and Venice the dream for most American and Asian tourists, those who live for the most part in bland modernist cities? I appreciate some minimalist styles, but come on, most people don't and like things that look 'cool' for better or for worse. I actually like a mix of styles. However, most people think the average glass scraper is wallpaper and a random facade might actually make them look and appreciate a building

Good idea. Perhaps we should create one for all the major construction areas in the city (57th st, WTC, HY...) to make it easier for some ppl to keep up.
As far as this proposal I'm also glad it's back cause at the exception of Zaha's building, the new buildings along the high line are kind of ok design-wise, nothing compared to the earlier buildings in the areas, in fact there's an article about that exact topic in the Wall Street Journal.
Don't mean to sound like a Nimby but I'm starting to wonder of the area immediately around the high line is starting to feel a little too cluttered with all those new buildings hugging the park, not to mention the park is already crowded as it is, those nice walk along the high line might be less enjoyable. I hope it doesn't turn into another Times Square.

So are most busy streets in London (diesel odor) but I doubt I'd hear you complaining about that given that most posts from you that i've noticed are focused on bashing NYC in some way and promoting European cities. It's obvious you have an agenda. If you're talking about other smells like smelly food and trash, well then, NYC isn't for you buddy. better stay in pure Northern Germany where the most bothersome smell is probably horse manure from horse-and-cart travel though that village you call a city. I hope you have fun contemplating how you're going to solve the issue of horse manure overload in the future.

Yea.. I'll cook up something special with a map for all the major developments going down for a new Highline development thread.

Re: One Vandam

It's not all glass! according to the website it's limestone and glass.

I don't think he meant it in a bad way. I actually agree with erbse on this. Times square really is a stinky place, and this is coming from a New Yorker himself. The last time I was there, I could smell raw sewage odors emanating from the drain as me and some tourists waited at a crosswalk. The look on their faces was priceless!

With the current building boom going on in Long Island City, do you think that phase 2 of 2 Court Square might eventually happen? I hate the fact that 2 Court Square currently has a blank wall facing Manhattan.

Another High Line site

Michael Stern eyes record-setting West Side buy

West 24th Street parcel could go for $800 per square foot

http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/05/...west-side-buy/



Quote:
Developer Michael Stern is reportedly eyeing a parcel on Manhattan’s West Side that could set a record if it goes for the predicted $800 per square foot.

The head of JDS Development Group is looking to buy 510-514 West 24th Street, between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, in a joint venture with Largo Investments. Located beside Cary Tamarkin’s 10-story condominium building at 508 West 24th Street, the parcel could go for as much as $32 million, according to Crain’s.

Hard to tell from that render, but seems like it'll be a fine addition to Hudson Blvd. How're we coming on starting an HY compilation thread?
