Rem Koolhaas finally has one in the books in NYC. Looking forward to some official renderings.
I believe he's also designing a building around the high line.

http://www.6sqft.com/as-rem-koolhaas...ilt-proposals/






Quote:
Thirty-eight years after the publication of his acclaimed book “Delirious New York,” Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas and his Rotterdam-based firm Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) seem to have finally landed their first ground-up New York City commission. Excavation is already underway at the 22,000-square-foot project site located at 122 East 23rd Street and will soon host a pair of block-through residential towers articulated by faceted elevations and chiseled corners. While there has been no official announcement that Koolhaas is on board, several consultant websites and Linkedin profiles indicate that the Pritzker Prize-winner has been tapped, while New York-based SLCE will serve as the architects of record.

Speaking of under the radar starchitects in the city, I can't wait to see how Tadao Ando's project turns out. Simple and sophisticated, unlike some of those overly loud buildings we see too many of.
Some updates would be nice too.

L+M plans 54-story Park Row resi-and-retail tower
L+M plans 54-story Park Row resi-and-retail tower



Quote:
The developer filed a permit application to build a 59-story, 266,000-square-foot tower at 23 Park Row in the Financial District.
Plans call for 108 apartments in 213,000 square feet of residential space, as well as 52,600 square feet of retail between the cellar level and the lower four floors.
There will be five apartments each of the sixth through 11th floors, four on the 12th through 14th floors, three on the 15th through 21st floors, two on the 24th through 43rd floors, and full-floor penthouse units on the 44th through 48th floors of the building, the filing shows.
The tower will have a rooftop terrace and a lounge, as well as a fitness room, according to the application.
It’s unknown whether the apartments will be condominiums or rentals, and if the building will have an affordable component. A representative of L+M wasn’t immediately available to comment.
L+M bought the sites that make up the property in three deals. It picked up 23 and 31 Park Row in 2014 from Joe and Rachelle Friedman, the founders of J&R Music and Computer World, paying $15.5 million and $36.2 million for each respectively. The developer paid $21 million to investor Philip Hymowitz for 29 Park Row in May 2015.
The developer demolished those three buildings earlier this year.

I have a question regarding this project. I was wondering, what will happen to the windows of the adjacent building that face the new highrise beeing built next to it? Will there be some sort of gap?

If you're referring to 5 Beekman, yes there is a narrow street between that and this development.

new york is one the few cities in the world that is producing genuine new architectural gems/treasures (around the soho area especially), so it softens the blow of this admittedly galling loss. however, even NYC cannot fully justify or continue to get away with that behaviour. vandalism.

perhaps a new yorker or some other knowledgeable person can explain how that 1927 tower demolition came to be allowed? was it not in a conservation area? was it decrepit? unlisted? did it fall outside criteria for protection somehow? an astounding loss, worries me that more could go.

....because preservation efforts are generally focused on saving structures with historic or symbolic merit, not those that are simply "pretty".

If there were truly very few art deco structures left in the city, or if this was a masterwork example of the style, it would be worth saving. As it is, it isn't particularly important.

You guys are crying over spilled milk. This is downtown, that ship has long sailed.

Nobody would care if the replacements were similarly beautiful, but when the best being offered is a glass block of course people will care. If caring about the beauty of a city is 'crying over spilled milk', then I'll happily continue doing so.

Apologies but I beg to disagree, these are the type of buildings that for me typify New York. It may not be the best example of NYC Art Deco and it may not have any historic merit, it may not be important and I don't care if it's uptown, downtown or mid town, it's a beautiful building and to demolish it 10 odd years short of it's centenary is cruel. I love New York with a passion and it hurts to see the fabric of New York slowly eroded.
Alas, we have the same problem here in London. We have plenty of historic and protected buildings but we are gradually losing the old 'pretty but unimportant' buildings, the buildings that have to particular merit but buildings that form the fabric of London. Redeveloped under the 'progress banner'.
But I guess someone is getting wealthy redeveloping this site and it's difficult to fight the developers on so many fronts. Very sad. A tale of two cities.
