Nothing in the 80s looks like this either. This is far more restrained and far less glassy than anything that came out of that decade.

New York is the only place on earth where buildings this tall are just fillers. Amazing skyline!

The street level stone veneer is very attractive.



There is attention to detail. A nice touch on the HVAC building grills.

Architecturally, it is kind of difficult to put a finger on what era this fits in, in terms of its design style. The closest era fit would probably be the 30s, but this doesn't really look Art Deco. I guess it just fits best in the era it has been built in.

there was a quote that summed up this project.It said that the design was not to be in the 30s but to take off from where we left off in Art deco, It's a slight revival of course nothing as ornate but it's New York for sure !

I remember this project from when it was a hole in the ground and walled off. I go by it every day and my opinion hasn't been so high of it. The ugly orange and the cranes ruin the view, but it might just fit in as the orange and cranes go away. Being directly behind the Woolworth Building presented a challenge, but I can see the potential for it fitting in. When I get the chance, I'll get some current pictures.

Maybe late 90s or early 00s. There's faux-deco apartments like this in Toronto from back then.

I don't know what they're called but there's a cluster of them along the Toronto waterfront. They're across a lot of canadian cities.
