I wouldn't mind seeing FDR drive torn down to be honest. Maybe that's because I don't have a car though.

It is a bit distracting, but it's still a great waterfront. It would be better without the highway there though imo

I'm with you. Tearing down the Embarcadero Freeway -- and replacing it with an at-grade, tree-lined boulevard, trolley-accessible, bay-side boulevard -- is one of the best things that ever happened to San Francisco. Doing the same to FDR would do wonders to the waterfront.

I also expect that it would create a more fertile ground for supertalls to rise. Better for your prospective high end offices and ultra-luxury condos to back up to a walkable waterfront instead of an underlit highway ovepass.

But even in New York, America's least car-reliant big city, it's hard for me to see an arterial ring-road get torn down just to improve the civic/urban landscape. Even in ultra-progressive SF, it took a major earthquake to push them to take that leap.

Yeah it is annoying having the highway on the waterfront here and also on the West side too, but I guess it's better than having it cut across the middle of the island, which almost happened. I'm extremely thankful that these proposed highways were never built: https://www.vanshnookenraggen.com/_i...-robert-moses/

That literally happened just across the island though with the southern half of the West Side Highway. It used to be elevated all the way from the current end of the elevated section at 57th street down to the Brooklyn/Battery Tunnel and Battery underpass. Well OK, it wasn't torn down entirely to improve the streetscape-it was demolished when lack of maintenance caused it to start falling down on it's own.

If there are any news coming they will be posted, also you seem very unpatient. And users have already posted DOB documents about razing the existing buildings and i think there was the talk of scaffolding already. So it is moving already. I am not sure if you´re really reading the threads.

I'm impatient? Well, that's me. World moves too slowly. Thx for update though.

It seems like demolition is already occurring on one of the buildings in the assemblage.
Since there isnt much action, if you want to see progress pay attention to the One Seaport thread, this site is right across the street so you might get some glimpses.

the red brick building is where this tower will rise. This photo is about two weeks old.

Covering up the world's ugliest party wall should really be reason enough to build it. I remember when it was built I was already active on this forum and everyone was perplexed as to what in the world they were thinking, white with random stripes...

A - hopefully - well-designed supertall in that location would be two reasons for celebration: Another supertall and that building finally hidden.

Reminds me of a piece of abstract art. I don't mind it actually. But yes, bring on the new tower.

At least according to NY YIMBY 2 weeks ago, demolition is ongoing.

Quote:
125 Greenwich Street is already rising, machinery is on-site at 45 Broad, and demolition is active at 80 South Street, which will ultimately be the tallest of them all.
