Hello Guys,

I have seen that the "Pier 55 Hudson River Project" is canceled.
Is it coincidence? The London "Garden Bridge Project" was also abandoned. Both projects combine extravagant design with urbanity and ecology. But both in England and in the USA, there are right-wing populists in power. Does this have something to do with the fact that law-populists do not like construction projects in which trees occur? Why does not a private investor develop these projects? It does not have to be the state.


I find both projects great. It is boring if you only build houses. Variety needs the cool city.

Moreover, both projects would be tourist attractions that would help attract tourists and money in the global competition.

If you do not build tourist highlights and invest money, you will not earn money.

It should not be that the modern era no longer attracts tourist attractions. For they create an emotional connection to a place.

BIG is very unusual. There designs are almost anti-NY. It's nice to see a new progressive firm like this spice up the landscape and push the envelope when there is so much retro stuff going up now (Stern, SHOP, etc)

Financial District - Equitable Building - 120 Broadway

Equitable Building's $50M makeover will restore it to its 1915 glory days





Quote:
What was once the largest office building in the world is now set to undergo a major renovation. Silverstein Properties, the owner of the behemoth that is 120 Broadway, has brought on Beyer Blinder Belle to carry out a renovation, that will restore many of the design elements of the building to when it first opened in 1915.

Among these changes include the restoration of the entrance; the current green marble that fills the arch above the doorway will be replaced by a bronze grille over glass, which in turn will fill the building’s lobby with more light.

The building’s revolving doors will get a redesign with bronze finishes to carry forward that theme. Other planned additions include a new lighting system with hanging bronze fixtures to enhance the building’s soaring lobby, a new reception desk, and a granite accent wall. The retail spaces in the lobby will be activated and expanded as well...

...Silverstein purchased the property in 1980, and has owned it ever since. The building was declared a NYC landmark in 1996. Work on the renovation is expected to begin early next year, and will cost about $50 million.

Not unusual at all if you go to his native Denmark. Even less so if you tour major cities in the Netherlands, which should be the holy land of all BIG fans. Only thing unusual is that he's having these commonplace modern European designs built in the USA. He's not creating unusual designs. He creates usual designs for unusual places.

New Yorkers should have more say in ‘accidental skyline’ of NYC supertalls: report
There are more than two dozen supertall towers either completed or in the works in New York City right now, with more to come in the next few years—and that’s not taking into account all of the tall buildings that don’t quite meet the 984-foot threshold. And since 2013, the Municipal Art Society has been tracking the rise of those towers (including the skyscrapers of Billionaires’ Row and the Financial District) as part of its “Accidental Skyline” series, which looks at the impact, environmental and otherwise, that new skyscrapers have on the built environment.

MAS just released its 2017 report, and in addition to addressing its issues with recently-announced skyscrapers—including 200 Amsterdam Avenue, due to become the Upper West Side’s tallest building—it also outlines a 10-point plan [PDF!] for addressing what it calls the “unprecedented boom in as-of-right, out-of-scale development that flaunt the intention of our zoning code.”

Yeah, well I was talking about USA mainly here. I don't follow development in every European country, only glancing at UK mostly now and again.

Upper East Side - 27 East 79th Street

A Beaux-Arts style building will rise on the Upper East Side’s 79th Street, the block’s first condo


Quote:
The Upper East Side‘s 79th Street, stretching between Madison and Fifth Avenues, remains known for its architecturally beautiful 19th and early 20th-century homes. Now, as CityRealty learned, the stretch of street will soon gain its first condominium at 27 East 79th Street, also the block’s first new building in 40 years. The Parisian-inspired, 15-story building will have interiors designed by Cabinet Albert Pinto, whose trademark style mixes old-world luxury with modern design. The firm’s previous clients include the French President and royal families of Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Albert Pinto’s team, run by Linda Pinto, will be working with local firm, HTO Architects...

The building will be covered with a warm limestone, which complements the detailed iron grillwork and oversized windows. The ground level boasts a domed marquee, with Juliet balconies above.
