Yes, it was Calatrava.

See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_...sportation_Hub

And I agree: one of those 'fillers' in Rotterdam would be more than nice.

I was asking because some Spaniards would argue that Calatrava is not a good architect, as a matter of fact, a lot of his projects in Spain are falling apart.

Why was this allowed to be built so close to a cathedral? It completely overshadows it.

Yeah same thing is happening with the Battersea power plant in London - building new structures so close to the old stuff is against the whole point of preserving old architecture, because you can't display it properly.

Because the cathedral was running huge deficits; hence, the transfer of air rights...
Or, you could just preclude any development on their land, and they'd go belly up.

Doesn't sound like a good way to preserve anything, if you ask me...¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The current development is as respectful as it could be...it's also not as if it's at all unusual

Yup. At street level, the smaller projects are just as enriching as the large ones

Upper East Side Project - 151 E 78th St

New Classically-styled high-rise on the UES wrapping up external construction (The widows still have a blue film on them to be taken off, and the window A/C units are temporary for internal construction as well)

The last building looks great, but what is up with the ACs? They kinda mess up the whole thing...

Are there plans to revitalize the cathedral? They should just turn it into a cultural center or something like that.

Why not just keep it as a cathedral? There is too much of this sentiment which thinks that the West should just abandon it's native Christian heritage.

It's already a bit of a cultural center. They hold concerts there and popular non-denominational events. The fact is that the Episcopal Church is in decline, the church suffered a major fire a decade ago, and stonework requires a lot of skilled manpower and money. I wish the Koch brothers would donate some of their billions to completing it, rather than in politics. However the Episcopal Church is a liberal church. Maybe they can finish the cathedral in cast stone, like St. Patricks.

They've finished 151 East 78th already?! That was absurdly fast. Just beautiful, though-- exactly like the renders to the point that it's almost uncanny.
