529 Broadway is a beauty, by far my most favorite low-rise.

I think that most classical buildings show that themselves.

LEESER Architecture dreams up an 80-story supertall for Downtown Brooklyn Macy’s site

Quote:
POSTED ON THU, AUGUST 18, 2016 BY DANA SCHULZ

In April, initial details were released about Downtown Brooklyn‘s Macy’s $100 million interior makeover, which included new columns, fluted ceilings, metal and glass entrance canopies, and video screens surrounding the escalators. This came after Tishman Speyer inked a $170 million deal with the department store in January, in which they’ll remodel the 11-story Art Deco building’s top five floors into offices. As part of the deal, Tishman also took control of the connecting Hoyt Street parking garage, a site that was speculated may give way to a supertall, mixed-use tower. Today, CityRealty.com posted a set of renderings from architecture firm LEESER showing a glassy tower rising from the existing department store. Although it is not the design being considered by Tishman Speyer, it does give us a taste of the type of modern development that could climb from the coveted DoBro address.


It looks a lot like BIG's 2WTC.
*emphasis mine

City rejects land use review to curb Lower East Side skyscrapers

Quote:
Three major LES developments are not required to pass through ULURP
BY ZOE ROSENBERG




The Department of City Planning has denied the Lower East Side community’s request for a land review procedure on three large developments poised to rise on the neighborhood’s waterfront. The request was one of two the community is pushing forward in an attempt to curtail unchecked development in the low-rise neighborhood...

Carl Weisbrod, the Director of the Department of City Planning, responded to the request in a letter quoted by The Lo Down,

Quote:
"I agree that the development contemplated here is significant when each proposed development is considered individually, and that the potential impacts to the surrounding neighborhood require unique consideration when the three proposed projects are assessed cumulatively...Because the proposed modifications will not require any new waivers or zoning actions or increase the extent of previously granted waivers, the modifications will be treated as ‘minor.’"
The community has also pushed forward an agenda for a neighborhood rezoning that would allow buildings to rise no higher than 350 feet...
This will likely get fairly ugly before too long, but all is well, for now.
