I want to kill you out of jealousy.

And wow, I didn't realize it could be as tall as the Empire State Building until just now.

It Was Fun Till the Money Ran Out

By NICOLAI OUROUSSOFF
December 19, 2008


Now that high-end bubble has popped, and it is unlikely to return anytime soon. Jean Nouvelís 75-story residential tower adjoining the Museum of Modern Art has been delayed indefinitely. And developers now seem loath to undertake similar projects. Even if the economy turns around, the publicís tolerance for outsize architectural statements that serve the rich and self-absorbed has already been pretty much exhausted.

This is not all good news. A lot of wonderful architecture is being thrown out with the bad. Although most of Mr. Nouvelís MoMA tower would have been devoted to luxury apartments, for instance, it would have allowed the museum next door to expand its gallery space significantly. It would also have been one of the most spectacular additions to the Manhattan skyline since the Chrysler Building.

Delayed--not canceled for those of you ready to panic...there is a real push for this thing and those who are for it seem to outnumber the nimby opposition( in this case). Still none of that matters if there is no reliable funding. Let's hope this one can make it. There is still the chance it gets approved during the summer.

I seriously think that when the money comes back (and eventually it will), this will go ahead in no time. New Yorkers seem to understand the significance of this building. Such an architectural achievement to be will not be stopped by an obtuse mob. Money is the key. Hell! I'll chip in 5 bucks if it helps!

In this hostile economic climate of extreme proportions, it would be unwise to panic -- just wait for the new President and his administration to reshape the financial future of the national economy.

I know it's kind of awkward to ask for a skyscraper these days, but...

Is there any tiny information on how they're going to proceed with Tower Verre?

I hope this one is still as alive as it looks. Would be a pity for Big Apple to lose this amazing project.

I hope so too, but if there hasn't been any news posted since December I doubt there's really anything to say about it.

Once MoMA disembowels itself of that filthy cockroach Glenn Lowry (known among members and staff as the Self-Absorbed Prick) this project should move forward and eventually grace the beautiful New York City skyline. I can't wait....for both!!!

"Together these projects threatened to transform the cityís skyline into a tapestry of individual greed."

What a load of bullcrap. I would never have the money to buy an apartement in one of those buildins. So? I don't see any problems with that.

Who gives a crap what the NY Times writes anyway?
They've just lost their own (disappointing) supertall and it serves them right for being intellectually biased.

I really hope that this tower, and the other towers that are planned/proposed for midtown get built. The Empire State building coulds use some company in my opinion.
