MFW an old fart's home looks nicer than the tower for billionaires it's compared to.

It's convenient to show what I'm talking about from the renders, which make up most of the quotes, so I have every reason to quote them entirely. Maybe it's inconvenient if you have to scroll more on a smartphone, but using a smartphone for a thread which is at least two-thirds pictures shouldn't be too much.

it's bad forum etiquette to quote full posts.

It's worse netiquette not to use proper capitalization, especially on a forum.

I edited out the few unnecessary images, if that's what makes you feel genuinely triggered. I don't see a difference, so my argument still applies.

@RegentHouse: It's enough to quote the project names or the URLs, as that makes clear what you're talking about. It minimizes loading times. Take more care about the conventions of this forum in the future, thanks.

He didn't say it looks like one, it is one. Read the link above the image.

South Bronx - 101 Lincoln Ave and 2401 Third Ave

A project like this (with 6 towers and 5000+units) coming to the South Bronx was unfathomable even just 5 years ago

Seriously, RegentHouse was actually praising the building. To be so defensive of neo-classical architecture that one can't recognize a compliment must be exhausting.

Let's say I only quoted the link, and you wouldn't immediately know what I was talking about unless you took the time to click it. Yet when I quoted the entire post with the images, confusion still ensues over my opinions on a few developments.

My apologies to everyone for not being a normie who doesn't care about the aesthetics for new development, as long as it keeps coming.

THAT'S WHERE IT IS??? Wow, in the renders it always looked like it's in the middle of nowhere (speaking in relative terms, I know there is no middle of nowhere in Manhattan), but it's right at the entrance to Hudson Yards? That's the most amazing location ever. I had no idea, all the best High Line projects really are in one spot.
