I love that Waterline Square is being creative with building envelopes. It'll add a nice tapering looking from the Hudson.

I agree, this is a great project that seemingly came out of nowhere

420 Albee Square aka One Willoughby Square is rising according to this article. I havent seen any updates of this future office building recently, but it will be one of Brooklyn's tallest.

Is there any chance that all the new tall glass towers will get their facade lit up with LED lights at night like they do it in China? That would look epic...
But anyway, New York has some awesome projects. I especially like that they start to build tall outside mid- and downtown and in former undeveloped ares like Hudson Yards. That will improve the cities overall look a lot!

Surprisingly decent raw concrete facade on this building right behind the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

I gotta say the cladding on 606 West 57th looks ten times better than the render.

Dayum! That cantilever is crazy! And the stone base with the glass rising above works beautifully. This type of earthy base with modern glass rising above needs to be done more often. It's a great combination of classic looks at street level to please the pedestrian eye, and fantastic modern heights above for a beautiful skyline. It's a win win combination.

^ I agree here.
Streetlevel podium buildings should show more classical features to blend with the well-established NYC look. The upper parts can be more extravagant at times.

I'm not a great fan of this example, though. But it's pointing in the right direction for the city.

^You are simply saying NYC should continue to build the same stuff over and over again and not develop a new kind of style and reestablish itself in the 21st century.

The well-established NYC look is to have a great diversity of architectural styles from all eras.
