Midtown East - Sony Building - 550 Madison Ave

Snøhetta tapped as lead architect for $300M Sony Building restoration

Quote:
Now, with those plans long abandoned, Olayan America and Chelsfield revealed plans on Monday for a $300 million renovation of the tower, modernizing the lower levels of the building with high-quality amenities and a sprawling 21,000-square-foot public garden. With Snøhetta as lead architect, the renovation will be the first major project in East Midtown since its revitalization plan was approved earlier this year...

...According to Olayan America, the plans will enhance Philip Johnson’s 1980s postmodern design and will feature all-encompassing amenities, world-class retail and restaurants. While the iconic top of 550 Madison Avenue will remain a fixture of the Manhattan skyline, its base will transform into a more inviting street front with state-of-the-art systems. According to Snøhetta, their design approach “stitches the life of the building back into the street.”...

...The building’s stone facade will be partially replaced at eye level with an undulating glass curtain wall. This updated facade aims to highlight the multi-story arched entry while also complementing the building’s existing steel structure.

Notably, the renovation includes nearly doubling the current public space by converting it into an outdoor garden with water features and trees. The neighboring annex building will be removed, allowing the park to expand, becoming the largest outdoor garden within a 5-minute walking radius of the building. More than 40,000 square feet of amenities are also planned for the building....

The renovation of 550 Madison is expected to be completed sometime in 2019.

I'm interested to see the cladding on this. Looks like the columns will have a nice marble finish.

But omg, the Sony Building. Why do they have to disfigure this postmodern icon like that? How is it not heritage protected?

NEW YORK | Projects & Construction

Essex Crossing will make among the biggest impact on NYC’s streetscape of all projects..replacing empty lots in a prime location with bustling, incredible urban buildings. Almost all gaps in Manhattan are getting closed these days.

It's not old enough. Still, preservationists should coerce changes to the proposal. The glass opening while cut level to the arch, destroys the facade's articulation effect created at lowers level in relation to the three vertical windows on both sides, and exposing the steel structure is completely against postmodern architecture principles here. Also the vertical windows down to street level changed to an overhang and resulting horizontal effect makes it more generic than inviting. The building is supposed to have a monumental and fortress-like form, which is part of the reason it's loved and loathed. It's consistent with the corporate image of AT&T when they were supposed to move into the building, before antitrust was retarded enough to force what was a natural monopoly to break up.

I find the execution with shifty and irregular arrangements of windows to be absolutely hideous. It's a shame because it would otherwise be solid redevelopment, too.

That's exactly what i thought when I first saw it. It reduces the monumental power of the entire base of the tower. I think by reducing the bold and imposing arch's impact with the glass facade covering really ruins the entire effect.

The Pier 55 floating park irritates in much the same way the proposed London Garden Bridge irritated. A piece of frippery - a redundant folly. If I want flora and verdancy, I'll take the park.
