I do too. I also love the contrast between it and this house from the 1700s, which sits at its base.

I meant closer to the WTC site, and the other one curved building you mention doesn't stand out much.

I saw this house when I went in NYC one year ago, and I was surprised by it!

There are many little colonial houses from the 1700s in lower Manhattan. They're tucked away on side streets.

I'm just happy this tower will block that ugly blank wall of the neighboring building.

The neighboring building will be redeveloped within a decade. It's a market-rate rental tower.

That probably won't be missed. Definitely not when the new tower is completed.

Thor Equities Mulling Post-Sandy Adjustments To Condo Tower At 50 West St.



Quote:
The developer Time Equities is rethinking the plans for its approximately 62-story condominium at 50 West Street. It is considering replacing a hotel with multilevel retail and, to make the building flood-resistant, moving the mechanical room onto the second or third floor. The developer is also looking at raising the sill height on the ground floor and using floodgates at the entrances.

After the storm, Time Equities hired the Albanese Organization, which built the Visionaire, the Verdesian and the Solaire in Battery Park City, to be its development manager.

“The Albanese Organization are the exact people to handle the project,” said Robert Singer, the director of development and acquisitions for Time Equities, “because Battery Park City was the only place that had electricity during the storm, while the rest of Lower Manhattan went dark.”

Oh, and as rightly observed at Wired NY:

Quote:
"As for timing, “50 West Street is looking to expedite its design,” said Jack C. Becker, the executive vice president for design and construction of the Albanese Organization, “and we are hoping that by late spring or early summer to at least get the foundation started.”"
