The Manhattanization of Brooklyn continues...

New Renderings for Boerum Hill's Planned 128-Unit Condo



Quote:
The Boerum—a planned luxury condo at 265 State Street—are slated to launch in the next few weeks, and here now is the first full rendering of the 20-story, 128-unit building, designed by Flank and developed by Flank and Carlyle Group. The 210-foot tower will be located right on the border of Boerum Hill and a hotel will rise from floors one to six, with the residential portion beginning on the seventh floor.

Columbia University Medical Center Update


http://fieldcondition.com/blog/2014/11/14/cumc

Quote:
WASHINGTON HEIGHTS—The brand new Columbia University Medical Center continues its steady climb upwards, and the taller it gets, the more absolutely crazy it looks. Field Condition has some new shots of the currently facade-less building and its "study cascade" design from Diller Scofidio + Renfro.

New Rendering for 111 West 57th Street Shows Ethereal Views



Quote:
Move over 432 Park, there’s a taller, slimmer and sexier ultra-luxury residential tower coming to Midtown. At the Municipal Art Society’s 2014 Summit for NYC, Simon Koster, Principal at JDS Development Group, provided the audience with a compelling presentation on how our ideals can serve as the basis in how we shape our city. The restored crown of Stella Tower, the East River mega-rental project at 616 First Avenue, and 111 West 57th Street’s discretionary approval by the Landmarks Preservation Commission were used as relevant examples.

And the 57th Street project really caught our eye. The 1,400+ foot tower will also become the slimmest building in the world with a slenderness ratio of 1:23. Its narrow profile and stepped crown evoke the romantic art-deco towers of the 1920s and ’30s and other timeless city landmarks. SHoP Architects are the designers and WSP Group are the engineers/magicians making sure things remain upright.

I just read through the thread on this building. From the renders and other pictures it looks like in the end it will probably look really good.

Yes, think of it as a giant 4075 inch LED HD TV, the size of a full city block.

Rather than building an endowment, he is accused of wasting more than $1 million on development plans for a luxury condo tower that has been likened to a pipe dream and burning another $5 million on a publicity campaign.

Cooper, 67, whose compensation totaled $1.3 million in 2010, even added CEO to his title of rector. He began listing himself first on the annual directory of vestry members.

The atmosphere has become so poisonous that nearly half the 22 members of the vestry, or board, have been forced out or quit in recent months."

The loss of that building is sickening enough, but the undermining and corruption of an institution meant for good works is despicable.
This article from 2013 (http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/...icle-1.1264352) suggest "Reverend" Cooper is out in 2015. Did he change his mind on retirement since he pledged to leave in 2015?

Don't expect anything different from organized religious institutions. History has shown time and again that they are corrupt corporations that only care about making money from gullible people.
