The Steiner Studios expansion will also include CUNY's new graduate film studies program, "the first public graduate school of cinema for New York City, and the only school in the country situated on a working film lot." So that's exciting. Silvercup is majorly expanding as well, both in Queens and the Bronx.

Jean Nouvel's Supertall MoMA Tower Is On the Rise


ILNY

Quote:
Jean Nouvel's 53rd Street tower has been in the works for the better part of a decade, but it's only recently that progress has been made on the supertall residential building. Sales of its luxury condos launched this year (with a cushy sales office to entice potential buyers), and now, construction is underway on 53W53. New photos by NYConstructionPhoto show that work on the foundation is happening, with some support beams being put into place. The building isn't expected to be completed for a couple more years (move-ins will happen in 2018), but once finished, it'll be home to plush amenities (a full-service gym and spa, private screening room, wine cellar), as well as new galleries for the Museum of Modern Art next door.

Steinway Tower will be the king of the Central Park without doubt. Such an incredible thing.

I'm really looking forward to Tower Verre and the amazing new classical towers by Robert Stern, too (220 CP, 520 PA, almost finished 30 PP).

There's something gothic about Tower Verre/53W53. I like it.

I fixed the broken links. A couple of pics from yesterday didn't work. Google photo was the culprit. Make a flikr account to solve the issue.

I did another Massive update of Manhattan , this time focusing on Uptown mostly. I decided to post pone finishing Downtown & my trip to WTC 1 due to mostly cloudy skies even though the Weather services predicted clear skies...sigh.. I will be doing Downtown next week along with Coney Island , Brighton Beach and Sheepshead Bay along with some Downtown Brooklyn photos taken from Smith-9th Street Station and WTC... Apparently not all the larger projects in Manhattan have there own threads and finding info on YIMBY is really hard...which is rare...

downtown update via earthcam: Glass panels are slowly but surely being installed at the upper floors of 56 Leonard, 3 wtc continues to rise, and 50 West Street is nearly fully clad.

Downtown turns really glassy, almost vancouver-ish random... I think some setbacked new classical supertall design with a crown, covered in limestone and/or bricks would be great there, close to the waterfront and complementing the new international style WTC complex and the postmodern WFC/Brookfield Place nicely.

I always wanted to see the American Radiator Building and the General Electric Building re-interpreted in the 21st century, this would be an ideal location to stand out and accentuate without a chance of it being obstructed seen from the waterside.

I agree with you, couple of new classical skyscrapers would really protect the skyline from blandness, and I think we no longer need to feel scared of some kitsch buildings as there are many architects that are able to make a new classical building that still has the touches of our time and architectural taste.
