Pithy quotes don't really reflect reality. Imagine if the Seagram Building, Mies's masterpiece didn't have 1,500 tons of non-structural, decorative bronze cladding the exterior.

Actually 432 is much more interesting than Seagram in my opinion.

And here you have just totally basic alpha-stage like renders but you both talk like you already touched and licked It's fasade.


Changing topic a little bit - someone in the dedicated thread said that this made WTC1 look not so special anymore and fake it. Well, I strongly disagree - this building is based on totally different concept, It's very slim. If so, It'll make WTC even more imposing. I think those shapes will look great together.

Neither does John Hancock Tower in Boston but that is still a masterpiece.

ShoP's UES 'Affordable Luxury' Building Will Look Like This



Quote:
Luxury real estate developer Anbau Enterprises has unveiled renderings for the SHoP-designed tower they're bringing to First Avenue between 88th and 89th streets. The building at 1711 First Avenue will rise 34 stories and contain 78 apartments—New York YIMBY reports they'll be condos—of the one- to four-bedroom variety that range in size from 875 to 2,850 square feet. The building will have ground-floor retail that will be "tailored to the building's amenity program," which may include an indoor basketball court, as well as a 29-spot garage with a robotic parking system. The building is being touted by the company as "affordable luxury," although what constitutes "affordable" seems to be up for debate.

That super tall residential is... well, very unsympathetic to its surroundings.

Its a shame, I thought 1WTC would deservedly be the focal point for that area of NY.

Hudson Yards Gets Even More Renders, Reveals Retail Interiors



Quote:
Along with yesterday's announcement that Neiman Marcus will be the flagship retailer at The Shops at Hudson Yards, new renderings of the megaproject have revealed some design tweaks throughout the massive site. New York YIMBY spotted some minor changes to 35 Hudson Yards, the David Childs-designed residential tower that will hold 100 condos and a 150-room hotel. The building's facade, formerly curved, will now be—sigh—boxier. The renderings also depict the new, formerly noted design for Diller Scofidio + Renfro's 15 Hudson Yards, which has ditched its center "corset" feature in favor of a smoother facade.

The Hudson Yards just turned a bit too glassy. Earlier renders were more promising, even if the stone-covered Neo Art Deco pieces just seemed to be placeholders.

The cluster would be much more appealing with some different facades. Let's hope there are some stone/brick-clad towers coming along. After all, the variety is what NYC is about.

I think all those renderings are just phase 1 of Hudson Yards. Phase 2 should be more residential, and since they're closer to the river, smaller scale to preserve views for the towers in phase 1. There's still a chance to see more of a diversity of architecture (Robert AM Stern was still rumored to be working on the site). We might see something similar to Battery Park City and the WTC.

...more like the bastard child of 432 Park Avenue. Seriously, as if this design could get any worse!

68 Trinity Place looks alright, but is still inferior to what it's replacing in all aspects.

They could plonk on some fake chrysler crown mixed with plasticky woolworth-style detail, some pink faux-marble and green glass random cladding, an all gold interior, and fake pillars near the bottom. And of course leave the floorplates exposed.

Or, they could build something more innovative worthy of being across the street from the WTC.
