Well where else would you wanna put a convention center in Manhattan? It only makes sense for it to stay put and be integrated into the Hudson Yards neighborhood.

I would rather they at least have decided to build up rather than out for the Javits Center. It's already sort of useless to residents and that $1 BILLION could should have gone to transit repairs. At least the renderings look sort of nice.

Why should a convention center be in Manhattan in the first place? The city and/or state own the land under the Javits Center, so as that neighborhood continues to develop there will come a point where the land is just too valuable to have it be a convention center, and the city/state will lease it out to a private developer for a huge sum of money.

Yup, gentrification is coming Interesting to see how developers already know how to start it. Thanks for sharing this video.

375 Pearl Street gets a makeover

The Verizon building that has spoiled many a tourist's photo of the Brooklyn Bridge is getting a partial reclad.

On a walk downtown I noticed that the facade at the top is being removed. I only took only one photo. They are also working on the opposite side.



The official site, 375pearl.com, has a great render. It is flash, so I cannot share it here. Tribeca Citizen got its hands on one that's a bit less exciting.



Unfortunately, it is far from a full reclad. At least for now. Searching for renders brought up an earlier proposal that seemed much more exciting.

They should just extend those glass strips down to the base. That'd be the perfect refurbishment, imo.

Still a nice refreshing though. Brings it into the 1990's at least.

Yep. But that likely won't happen anytime soon.

The lower floors are rented out to datacenters. Those tenants pay top dollar for these scarce facilities. And probably do not want people to be able to look at their equipment too closely, for all kinds of competitive and other reasons.

Windows are also just a annoyance for datacenters as these often need kept cool and at optimal temperatures.
