Regent, you clearly have little respect for architecture if you think New York is putting out low quality architecture today. Quality and creativity are more palpable today than ever. The diversity of architecture coming out of New York City today is far greater than has ever been seen in any city, ever. That's not an opinion. And I think that's a testament to the progressiveness of NY's architecture. While it may not be as decadent or ornate as it was, it's still equally as inspired in more cases than not.

I wonder what's the average floor space of an average skyscraper in NYC , it would be quite interesting to compare it to a city like Tokyo , wich's building shorter offices ..

Average office building? Presumably high since NYC's office buildings are clearly designed to maximize floor space and NYC has a grid built to accommodate "efficient" building. I would say NYC definitely has the highest average floor space for a building in the world, given the cost of real estate and the fact that office buildings usually build out as much as they can given the zoning on their plot.

Project: 111 Montgomery Street



Quote:
The Department of Buildings approved the plan exam application in June. But brokerage TerraCRG wants to market the property as condos rather than rentals, and they’ve proposed fewer, larger units. Their offering memo details a building with 137 units—44 one-bedrooms, 75 two-bedrooms, and 18 three-bedrooms. They also claim that condos at 111 Montgomery could fetch up to $1,100 a square foot. That’s certainly at the top end of the market for prices in the hood, but it’s comparable to apartments for sale north of Eastern Parkway.

The 22,000-square-foot lot sits between Franklin and Washington Avenues, just west of the shuttle train tracks.

Karl Fischer created this design. While it isn’t particularly exciting, it does have a setback starting at the seventh story, which helps maintain the street wall with the six-story prewar buildings next door. The first two floors are clad in a dark brick, accented with golden metal window frames, topped by 10 stories of sand-colored, cast concrete.
======================

Over in LIC, to the left of One Court Square.

Some nice density so far for LIC. Can't wait for its new tallest.

Looks like the crown won't be as 'transparent' as others have perceived it to be.

Rafael Viñoly, OLIN To Design Pier 26 Estuarium & Park Space, Tribeca

http://newyorkyimby.com/2015/10/rafa...e-tribeca.html



Quote:
The Hudson River Park Trust plans to redevelop the vacant Pier 26 in Tribeca, between North Moore and Laight Streets, into a science center and park space, according to The New York Times. Last week, it was announced that Rafael Viñoly will be designing the education and research facility, and OLIN will be the landscape designer. The $30 million project is being equally funded by Citigroup, the City, and, pending request, the LMDC. Completion is expected by early 2019.

So this seems to be the appropriate place to ask this question, but I've been in times square a couple times recently and noticed a building demolished, quite a rare occurrence in Times Square; what's going on? Any news on what's getting built there?

Says who. I'm too lazy atm to start a discussion on this. But the following article sums up my point of view pretty well.

http://www.aviewoncities.com/nyc/panam.htm

Quote:
The main reasons for the dislike of the New Yorkers for this building are the blocking of the view on Park Avenue and the massive structure, which has often been criticized as 'cheap quality' or 'monumental bad architecture'. On the other hand the structural concept of the building is very intriguing and its sheer massiveness symbolizes New York as a huge compact city.

Due to its location though, the building completely blocks the view on Park Avenue and the - much more appraised - New York Central building (Helmsley Building), which dates from 1929.
Something like that would be a lot more appealing in this location and would also solve the problem of the blocked view.
