Hard to tell from one rendering, but I think the subtle changes ended up making the facade look a bit too busy for my taste. The previous iteration was a great balance.

220 CP performs much better in context now, actually they should stick to classical and Art Deco at Central Park:

Great improvement for the design, almost exactly what I had in mind with my earlier remarks! Thanks for listening, Mr. Stern.

It might seem less characteristic now especially with the top, but instead it turned more elegant and classical, it will age more gracefully. And also the residential qualities are probably higher, even the outside balconies help improve the structure of the facade (though some refining needs to be done). Great job, one of the best supertalls of the 21st century so far probably.

I'm baffled at the Barney's proposal.

1) It doesn't look like the new building would be THAT much larger than the old one. Why not just retrofit the existing building?
2) It's freaking Barney's. You'd think they, among all the high end department stores, would appreciate history and idiosyncrasy the most. This mismatched/random design trend needs to die. I simply don't see how anyone would find the new design more appealing than the current building.

Columbia's Curvy Medical Building Now Has Its Glass Facade



Quote:
Work on the curvy, cascading stairs-fitted building in Washington Heights, otherwise known as the Columbia University Medical Center has been progressing steadily over the last few years, and it appears that the building's glass facade has now been installed, photos by Tectonic reveal. The Diller Scofidio + Renfro-designed building stands 14 stories tall and features 100,000 square feet of classroom facilities.

Construction on the project began in August 2013, and by the looks of it is likely that the building will ready for occupancy sometime this year.

2 Columbus Circle, it houses the Museum of Arts and Design, click on the link and you can see the pic of how it used to look, it was built in 1964 and used to look HORRENDOUS.

The new design is boring. I really am tired of Stern's copy cat designs now. The crown of the old design at least looked distinctive and grandiose. The new crown looks overly reserved and cookie-cutter (from his other projects). I have a feeling that the new design is cheaper to build too. The facade looks more basic than the more elegant shaft of the old one. I hate the new design, it's another PoMo rehash just like the hotel downtown The developers went cheap here, it's pathethic. The old design had some wow, the new one looks like another boring apartment building and is nothing to write home about. Sad!

The city doesn't really care about preserving most unlisted old buildings in midown. You saw that with the drake Hotel being demolished and other examples going on today if you read around NY threads. I think the city is very much invested in the development industry, it's quite obvious, rather than the "make a city looks good" industry. They could have it both ways, but they are too scared to force the developers to do anything that might upset them. I'm sure making them have to send a lot of money and time to preserve an old facade would be on of those things that would really irk them. Therefore you end up with more and more old buildings being knocked down and many being replaced by boring modernist boxes that do not replace the lost beauties. That is because there is lack of interest in the political nexus of the city because these things have been happening in other cities for decades now. NY would have this by now if they were interested at all in preserving the old facades. Someday it might happen when the people finally get tired of seeing old beauties being demolished. The people needs to care to force the politicos to do something. Hopefully it won't take the destruction of another beautiful building to do it.

Bjarke Ingels's Next NYC Project Is A $50M Bronx Police Station



Quote:
Starchitect Bjarke Ingels's latest project is taking him to the Bronx —to the 40th Police Precinct to be precise. Ingels has been chosen to develop a new station located in Melrose, The Architect's Newspaper reports. The project will be constructed at an estimated cost of $50 million, according to the city's Department of Design and Construction, which is the agency responsible for handing out contracts for public projects such as this one.

New York's Future Tallest Tower Reveals Its Facade (Sort Of)



Quote:
Extell's Central Park Tower is still a ways off from claiming its prize as New York City's tallest tower, but construction on the 1,550-foot supertall is coming along. While it's in the early phases, one big mystery—what the facade will look like—is getting somewhat cleared up. An anonymous tipster sent a photo to YIMBY that shows one of the curved panels that will make up the building's steel-and-glass exterior, and it accompanies a construction update on the building. It's no longer just a big hole in the ground; the lower levels of the building, which will hold a seven-story Nordstrom department store, are already becoming visible above ground.
