But in a thin tower you get more windows per home, which is a really nice feature many would appreciate I suppose.

NEWS:
There's a minimum one lawsuit requirement in all New York developments...

http://www.cityrealty.com/new-york-c...-horsley/29782
Suits reported filed against developers of One Madison Park



Quote:
Wendy Maitland, a broker with Brown Harris Stevens, has filed one of several suits against the developers of One Madison Park over loans and deposits.

Ms. Maitland, a senior vice president at Brown Harris Stevens, and the building's original listing broker, filed suite December 22 in New York State Supreme Court claiming that she lent Ira Shapiro and Marc Jacobs, the developers of the residential condominium tower, $300,000 last August, according to an article by David Jones today at therealdeal.com

The article said that the suit maintains that the developers asked to borrow the funds "to help pay for unpaid mechanics liens on the property" and that Mr. Shapiro had told Ms. Maitland "he would receive money from another source, so Maitland agreed to lend the funds if they money was repaid within 24 hours."

...One Madison Park is a dramatic and very slender residential skyscraper on the south side of Madison Square Park that was developer by Slazer Enterprises of New City, New York, and designed by Cetra/Ruddy.

The 47-story tower contains 90 residential condominiums and its form is somewhat similar to the proposed skyscraper at 80 South Street that was designed by Santiago Calatrava for Frank Sciame. That tower featured 10 four-story townhouses that were vertically stacked and separated by roof terraces.

The project's celebrity ratcheted up many more notches, furthermore, when the developer unveiled its plans for the 22nd Street portion of the through-block project.

For that, the developer commissioned the Office of Metropolitan Architecture (OMA), which is headed by Rem Koolhaas, the author of "Delirious New York," one of the most famous books ever written about the city that was notable for its illustrations.

OMA's 22nd Street design was startling and although much shorter than the residential tower facing Madison Square Park, it promised to be even more of a "double-take" structure for not only was it a "peek-a-boo" building that at first glance appeared to loom from behind the tower to take a look at the park but it also was cantilevered substantially to the east in what appeared to be a very remarkable feat of engineering.

OMA's proposed 24-story "back" building also was extremely notable for the "bottom" windows that it offered in the cantilevered floors.

The Department of Buildings, however, approved an amendment submitted by John Cetra of Cetra/Ruddy, Inc., to the building plan for 23 East 22nd Street June 18, 2009 that appeared to substantially lowered the height of the 24-story building.
