Looks great. What would that green cladding material be?

And yeah there will be a nice contrast between the neighboring building and this project.

Call me overly proud of my city, but I don't believe there's higher quality architecture going up anywhere in the world than what's currently going up in SoHo/TriBeCa? I won't say all of NYC is so blessed, that'd be a lie, particularly outside of Manhattan quality goes down. But walking around SoHo, I'm in constant visual euphoria looking at how much these new buildings are contributing to make SoHo more visually pleasing, when I didn't even think it was possible.

Thanks buddy, I've been to 40+ countries, including the "hub" of contemporary architecture, ie London and Scandinavia in the last six months, and I have to disagree with you. I think you need to walk around NYC more and get out of Mexico City to see what quality architecture is. How about you propose a counter in the form of neighborhoods with better architecture instead of being a troll.

Also, realize that height doesn't have any correlation with quality, in fact, I believe low to midrises are almost universally better quality, thus Dubai and China, and really everywhere except select European cities aren't credible counterpoints.

I guess it's the fact that NY has a lot of money behind its architecture. Manhattan doesn't have unlimited land, so you either had to build tall or pretty buildings to stay in the game. With other cities being rather strict about height, NY was able to gather around all the best architects, because many of them dreamt about designing beautiful towers, and it was possible to do it here and nowhere else.
The fact that some ugly glass-only towers are being built in NY still boggles my mind, but I guess that's where height matters more than looks.

Website says that it's terracotta facade with copper window frames.
Interiors look a bit too retro for my taste, but damn that building is sure a looker on the outside.

Thanks for the productive contribution, I agree. And the biggest issue at hand particularly, to expand on your point, is the lack of land and abundance of wealth in SoHo in Tribeca, these neighborhoods are extremely expensive to live in, have strict boards that govern what designs match the historical context of the neighborhood, and due to the status of the neighborhood, it's able to attract the world's best architects such as Jean Nouvel, to build lowrise architecture, and channel the best of their talent.

Thank you for posting that bodegavendetta/streetscaper, that turned my Monday around. It's a shame they didn't include the new cluster that's forming around Madison Square Park where at least 3 200+ meter buildings are going up.

Additionally, I not only fully expect the area between 1 Vanderbilt and the 57th St billionaire buildings to fill out once East Midtown Rezoning fully passes, but the Hudson Yards and Penn Station area should continue to see massive amounts of development.

St. John's Terminal Redevelopment Gets First Renderings

Quote:
The redevelopment of the St. John's Terminal site could bring over 1,500 residential units, many of them affordable, to the West Village, and the first images of what that project could look like are finally out, The Villager reports. Local residents aren't too thrilled about the proposed development, which entails razing the existing 1 million-square-foot St. John's Terminal building and erecting a 1.7 million-square-foot multi-building project, despite the benefits the developers say it would offer the community. For the time being, the plan is conceptual; it still needs to pass through a uniform land use review procedure (ULURP) before getting the go-ahead.

In a community meeting held this month, project architect COOKFOX presented designs for the Atlas Capital Group- and Westbrook Partners-developed project. The development's highlights include 500 units of affordable housing, of which 175 units are just for seniors. A little number crunching turns back that, at that rate, one-third of the projects apartments will be affordable, which is well above what's par for the course.

Here's how the plan breaks down: The tallest residential building proposed for the site, at 430 feet tall, will be fully market rate and sit at the northern end of the development. The 175-unit senior housing building will also be in this area, as will 40,000 square feet of retail—the developers suggest bringing in a Trader Joe's. There's also an additional 105,000 square feet of basement space for a big box-type store, as per the developer's suggestions. The middle section of development will include a smaller residential building with almost equal market rate and affordable apartments spread throughout, and a small garden adjacent to this building would connect it to the another fully market-rate residential building. The southern portion of the development will hold a set of mews and a 350-room hotel.

The plan also includes publicly accessible park space. When St. John's Terminal was still in use, platforms connected it to the elevated railway track that now makes up the High Line. Under COOKFOX's plan, those platforms will be converted into mini elevated park space, much like the High Line.

If the plan moves forward, the developers will pay $100 million to the city to purchase Pier 40's air rights for the redevelopment of the terminal. In turn, those funds can be pumped back into the crumbling pier, which is in urgent need of repair.

Neighborhood residents are so up-in-arms because they believe the development does not address the burden it will add to the limited amount of schools in the area, the fact that they need more medical facilities, and how the flood protection mechanism for this development might endanger the homes of other residents in the area.

"The tallest building in this plan is equal to the Trump Soho," Andrew Berman, the director of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, told The Villager. "The overall project is equal to six Trump Sohos."

If the proposed development does not pass the ULURP process, the developers may move ahead with an as-of-right development, which wouldn't allow for the residential buildings the developer is looking to add.

At the community meeting, the developers assured that this will be the first of several discussions with the community in terms of designs and proposals before the project moves forward.

So Gotham, Art-decoesque! Totally adore it! Like a termite hill.

And BOY, my eyes! The Fitzroy by JDS has to be officially the greatest peace of Deco ever since this style took a halt in the 1940s/50s! Wow, über amazing. This could potentially be right up there with gems like the American Radiator Building. Can't wait for it!

I mean, seriously, this just has to be quoted:

Giving you the thrills. That glazing beauty. Now if they'd add actual ornaments, this will rob people of their sleep.

The New York City forum looks great now, thanks!

That's pretty much how I wanted it to look like for years.
