NYC is really going through an architectural renaissance right now. Not just of skyscrapers and supertalls, although that's obviously true, but of old styles being revived... classic forms and materials being combined with fresh ones (that Wooster St. SoHo building is a prime example; you could easily get away with calling it Castiron Modern.)

And, dare I say, architects are bringing playfulness and humor back into the mix as well. The Fitzroy's color scheme is almost outrageously bold. Steinway tower plays with our expectations in everything from materials to proportions. And then there's this thing...



...which is so bonkers I think I actually laughed out loud when I saw it the first time, but I can't wait to see it become a permanent part of the skyline.

I have to wonder what's propelling this new era: whether it's advances in materials and manufacturing, or just a new generation of architects who grew up longing for the great old styles during a really dismal couple of decades. In any case, it's exciting times!

Mystery Tower Alert (x2)

...which actually brings me unexpectedly to this. While I was searching for a render of 212 Fifth Ave (above), I wound up sitting through a long AJSNY homepage video and discovered:





...and:



Maybe I'm not the first to spot these and they're already in this thread somewhere, but anyone know what the heck we're looking at??

Edit: No reply from AJSNY reps about it, so I forwarded the tip to New York YIMBY. There's a good chance they're just fantasy/visions, but hopefully YIMBY will have some idea whether they correspond to some existing development or not.

Edit #2: YIMBY emailed me back and they also believe these are just pie-in-the-sky concepts worked up by AJSNY (similar to the ultra skinny one in the Madison Park area with the ugly cantilevered penthouse terrace.) Fine by me, as these are both a little wonky designs, although it's made me realize I wouldn't hate another spire downtown somewhere.

This is probably my 2nd favourite project in NY behind the Steinway Tower.

Looking good! Has a nice sense of scale and great materiality. Definitely belongs in the same neighborhood as 55 HY.

Forgot about that one! I really hope they do not modify it, it's a genuinely thrilling piece of architecture. I do think the skyline will definitely get more interesting thanks to projects like this, which I think is due mainly to global competition to attract wealthy buyers with flashy buildings. Not to mention the rise of "starchitects" has had a lot of influence throughout the architecture world. With the market being so hot a lot of international architecture firms have set up shop in the city recently, so there's more competition all around. But OTOH there are too many cheap hotels/residential projects proliferating in less prime areas of NYC (e.g. Kaufman, Karl Fischer in Brooklyn...). Nothing new for the city but I wish "normal" projects would get more than the minimum effort too. But still, definitely an exciting time overall.

I will be in NYC next week. I can't wait! Looking forward to catching up on all these projects, it's been 4 years since my last visit. I so love NYC.
NYC and London, the two greatest cities in the world.

12 Warren Street has new exterior and interior renderings.







Quote:
The building is technically an alteration of an existing structure, which will be expanded from 37,268 square feet and five floors to 55,447 square feet spread over twelve floors. Including the bulkhead, the height of the old building will more than double, from 73 feet up to 162 feet. The entirety of the project will be residential, divided between thirteen condominiums, and HTO Architect is the architect of record, though DDG designs its projects in-house.

Completion of the building is expected in early 2016, and sales will begin this fall, although pricing is not yet publicly available.

Not for beautiful streets anyway. I'm in Paris right now, and it blows the shitz out of those cities, although London can compete in a few areas. If you like large piles of glass and steel over beautiful ornamented streets, you'll chose nyc over Paris.

That's somewhat subjective. I can see the beauty of Paris but I find it fussy, stuffy and stultifying. I'll take New York streets over Paris streets any day.

Well, most of NYC is neither glass nor steel. I've been to Paris and it's gorgeous, overall it's probably more beautiful than NY. But NY has variety on its side by far, and there are even certain neighborhoods and streets here I think are as objectively beautiful as nearly anything in either London or Paris. Just wish we had more greenery in parts of Manhattan.

NYC is more multidimentional, with lot's of water, old skyscrapers, huge parks and some hills. This, mixed with scale, makes it capital of the World. But I agree that It's streets are often neglected and unfriendly for pedastrians.

NYC could use more streets excluded from traffic. I think Boston could be a role model here.
