25 Kent approval & Central Park fundraising campaign

25 Kent: Williamsburg Office 'Tech Hub' Gains Ground as Rezoning Passes City Council
https://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/201...s-city-council

Quote:
The City Council has approved plans for a sprawling office complex near the waterfront, the last hurdle it needed to pass in the city's complex land use process.

25 Kent Avenue, an eight-story office building with two public plazas, a promenade, ground-floor retail, office space and light manufacturing space, backed by developer Rubenstein Partners and Toby Moskovits of Heritage Equities Partners, was unanimously approved by the council Thursday afternoon.

In exchange for not having to build community facilities as required by current zoning rules, some of the floor area will be reserved for light manufacturing uses.

The project is one of the first office buildings planned for construction in Brooklyn in decades and marks an increasing appetite for that type of space in the area.

The city had first tried to rezone a 15-block area around 25 Kent Ave. as part of the proposal, but that part of the plan got nixed during the land use process following community outcry that it was too much of an experiment.

Central Park, Bucolic but Aging, Is in a Quest for $300 Million
http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/14/ar...lars.html?_r=2

Quote:
On Thursday, the Central Park Conservancy is set to announce an ambitious 10-year, $300 million fund-raising and improvement effort.

It has already raised $112 million toward its $300 million goal, which includes a $25 million gift from the Thompson Family Foundation that will fund the restoration of Belvedere Castle and the park’s Children’s District, including the Dairy, Kinderberg, and Chess and Checkers House.

The intention of the park’s designers went well beyond pastoral scenery to promoting a civilized, improved life for citizens. The Dairy at the southern end, for example, was constructed in 1870 as a place where farmers could bring children fresh milk. Today the stone-and-wood structure needs new doors, windows, and stairs; floors sag and the loggia could use a paint job.

The Naumburg Bandshell, a site of free concerts, needs a new facade, stage and upgraded infrastructure.

The new campaign also aims to return arches, bridges and waterways to the original vision of Olmsted and Vaux, much of it inspired by woodlands in the Adirondacks and the Catskills, as depicted in art from the period, like Asher Brown Durand’s painting “Kindred Spirits.”

“Forever Green” hopes to rebuild the gazebo-like landings surrounding the boat pond, some of which disappeared 100 years ago and were redone in the ’70s in a different style.

View from Belvedere castle.

New York is starting to resemble Dubai. All these cheap glassy buildings are ruining its image.

Downtown Brooklyn - 250 Ashland Place

FXFOWLE’s The Ashland Kicks Off Leasing With New Renderings of Apartments and Food Hall

Quote:
...Handily resolving its heterogeneous context at the juncture of Brooklyn’s blossoming high-rise district and brownstone Fort Greene, the 563-foot-tall high-rise is clad in a variegated skin of rose and sandstone colored-brick, limestone, brushed metal, and glass, providing for a dynamic silhouette while alleviating some of the 580,000 square feet of bulk...

No, you are fail. every owner can decide how it´s building will look like. you think like a collectivist. learn about Liberalism and capitalism. and then, you understand the individual freedom of people and not the image of a city....

Indeed, learn about capitalism and learn about how the image of a city is part of the advertisment/promotion that attracts business. Why do you think businesses flock to NYC when its laws on liberalism/individual freedom are no different than in any other US city?

By the way, quotes like "you think like..." and accusations of any ideology based on no information about the person are as strawman as it gets, which is an easy way to disqualify your own posts. Respond to what people actually say, not your baseless assumptions about the people. Opulentus may be a communist, a capitalist, an islamic republican or the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler, it's simply impossible to tell from the few words he wrote, so quit responding to your guesses.

Of course they can. That doesn't mean that his statement is wrong. I'm not saying he's right, but the fact that every owner can decide what it's building will look like doesn't mean that NY isn't getting a lot of cheap glassy buildings.

The Wall Street Journal reports that this fall will mark the reveal of the new privately-owned public space that will function not only as an urban oasis but also as a deterrent to the sidewalk traffic that would’ve increased as a result of the glassy pedestrian bridge pending construction above West Street.

As for Jahn’s tower, more than half of the 191 condo units are already in contract with prices
for the apartments asking between $1.615 million and $18.63 million.
