BKSK Architects’ “Hi-Side” Tower Goes Vertical on the Far West Side



Quote:
To counter the far west side’s emerging future as a glass and metal ghetto, BKSK Architects have designed a robust steel- and brick-faced building at 509 West 38th Street, slated to open in 2017. After a failed condo proposal, a foreclosure, and a developer switch, the project is finally ascending and is already seven stories out of the ground since we last checked a week ago. Dubbed “The Hi-Side,” the 158,000-square-foot, mixed-use tower is being developed by investment firm Imperial Companies, who picked up the site from Iliad Development in an undisclosed deal.

Fast forward nearly eight years, and a 30-floor, 345-foot building is rising at the site. Situated at the eastern block front of the future Hudson Park Boulevard, bands of ribbon windows along its western face will provide residents with sweeping views of the Hudson River.

It's so hard to keep track of all these supertalls, but I thought the Nordstrom Tower was going to be the tallest in NYC?

By roof height, yes.

Staten Island's Empire Outlets and New York Wheel (the 625 foot ferris wheel)

The outlet mall is between the ferry terminal and the stadium.




The ferris wheel is on the other side of the stadium and has a second retail component and a parking garage. The piling machines are on the ferris wheel footings.

What's Next For Penn Station?

Quote:

The original Penn Station, image by Bain News Service via Wikimedia Commons


Empire Station Complex, image via New York State

Various schemes have been imagined throughout the years, including a series of proposals in 2013 by four notable architecture firms. SHoP Architects' plan would have moved Madison Square Garden to the southwest, built an extension to the High Line, and redeveloped the site of 2 Penn Plaza. Skidmore, Owings and Merrill also recommended moving the arena, this time to the lot just south of the post office, remaking the now clean slate over Penn Station into a mixed-use development. In similar fashion, Diller Scofidio + Renfro proposed moving the arena west of the post office and constructing a mix of uses on the Penn site, complete with theatres, a pool, restaurants, and park space. H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture would have constructed a new Hudson River pier beyond the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, placing Madison Square Garden at this location and using its original setting to house a revitalized garden-topped station with a skyscraper on each corner of the block.

Some of these ideas may be revived in the coming months, as firms prepare their submissions after a request for proposals was launched in January. They'll have until April 22 to outline their vision for Penn Station. Whether travelling by car, rail, foot, or bike, infrastructure must keep pace with the ever-changing transit patterns of big cities. New York City's extensive transit system is known the world over, and it looks like the time has come to reinvent one of the cornerstones of this crucial network.

Rebuilt the old Penn! Anything that keeps MSG Arena is unacceptable.

Two buildings on two very expensive and hectic corners in NYC. I can't even fathom out how much these two pieces of land must've cost.

A corner on 5th Avenue.

^ Indeed! A faithful piece of classical beauty coming along.
What's the actual name of this project and does it have a website?

212 Fifth Avenue: http://newyorkyimby.com/category/212-5th-avenue

It's a commercial-to-residential conversion. You can see the building already completed here: https://www.google.com/maps/place/21...70dc04!6m1!1e1

One of my favorite intersections in New York. The whole Flatiron District is to me just jawdroppingly beautiful.

Court Square will be unrecognizable in the next decade. 28 on 28th is the tallest project underway at the moment. It will be just shy of One Court Square's height. 43-25 Hunter Street, the second tallest underway, is sneaking up behind the completed high rises. 23-10 Queens Plaza South is the topped out tower.
