6sqft has a really incredible rundown of the many new developments slated to go up in Long Island City in NYC.
Lots of details on all the projects after the link, but I had to at least post the before-and-after .gif:



Some of the designs aren't exactly inspiring, but that's to be expected of an outer neighborhood like this. But in terms of sheer size, New York's "fifth skyline" is poised to overtake Downtown Brooklyn and Jersey City as the best skyscraper node outside of Manhattan (and would challenge many American and world cities). Now all they need is a true supertall in the works.

Great find. Also to be noted 23-15 44th Drive, which would be a tallest of the bunch, is not in that rendering.
And I also agree with Queens having the best skyline of the outer boroughs by the end of the decade, even with Brooklyn's 340 Flatbush, cause one thing that rendering doesn't show is the LIC waterfront, which I think looks better than Brooklyn's, and it too is still growing.

There's currently no direct connection between LIC and Penn, correct?
I can't remember...if not, does ESA do anything to rectify that, or no?

I don't think so. I think ESA is just supposed to extend LIRR to Grand Central.

134 Wooster Street-Morris Adjmi’s Soho Office Building Gets Landmarks Approval
http://ny.curbed.com/2016/3/15/11239...marks-approval

Quote:
The Landmarks Preservation Commission unanimously approved a plan to demolish an existing single story building in the Soho-Cast Iron Historic District and replace it with a six-story office building on Tuesday afternoon.

Commissioners heaped praise on the project prior to the approval saying the design, though using steel, was a refreshing take on the cast iron architectural history of the neighborhood, and that there were enough references in terms of the arched windows and the scale of the building that allowed for its construction.

The plan also includes retail on the ground floor which will be less than 3,600 square feet in size.

The Penn Plaza plans look gaudy and unrefined, tbh. I'm losing my patience with BIG.

I've actually thought a lot about designs similar to this -- trying to "hike up" the base of a building facade, giving the rigid materials the appearance of undulating fabric, like a rising curtain or, in this case, like Marilyn Monroe standing above a subway grate. It's not a bad idea, as it serves to soften what could otherwise be pretty chilly modernist boxes, and create a human scale around the couple ground floors...

But I agree the execution doesn't work too well here, I think because of the proportions. The "pleats" are a nice touch, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were specifically trying to reference our girl Marilyn in "Some Like It Hot." But it flares out too far in relation to the height of the building (and the glass-and-LED cubes sticking out of the base don't help)... I don't know a better way to put this, but I think they need to put a shorter skirt on a taller building.

There was supposed to be a station called Sunnyside JCT built along the Main Line. But that's on hold till ESA is completed. I think it will be added to Metro North access to Penn Station project.

Soon I hope, shocking that this building was allowed to be built next to the cathedral but if the money they got for leasing the land to build this development is used to maintain the cathedral then I guess it a small price to pay

Ha, I actually like the Marilyn analogy. And I agree that it flares out too much. It seems too dramatic a gesture for what it actually is.

Most definitely, but my question is how will this interfere with Cuomo's "Empire Station" Project?
