Glass facades shouldn't have mullions. Where is the seamless glass facades? In the future this will look very very old fashioned.

Old fashioned is the best look.

A topic that always used to get my attention! Here's a lovely example of no mullions - all glass facade. However, the architects here were going with a kaleidoscopic rather than one seamless glass effect. Still the view from the inside has zero obstructions, looks very contemporary. My favorite project in D.C. for awhile now.

Oh the millions confusion again!
If you're frequently commenting on a skyscraper architecture/construction forum, maybe spend 10 minutes on Google and figure out what a curtain wall system looks like and how it works...?

This is awesome. I love that bending the glass makes it strong enough to hold up without millions. You could not do this with flat panels.
This is however an 11 story building with low windloads, I'm assuming that 500-1000 feet up in the air where winds can get incredibly strong, this would be blown to pieces during a major storm.
Wondering what the limitations are bc it looks beautiful.

I am interested about the limitations too, another interesting aspect is that the flat glass panels appear to be thicker compared to the curved option which brings us to higher transparency of this innovation. You can click in the right corner below the photos to see actual glass mockups by manufacturers from China, Spain, Italy.

Or, simply you can follow the project and its next phases in our SSC thread:

So apparently Brookfield has owned the last parcel on the block for nearly two years now:

https://www.law360.com/articles/761171

When will they finally demolish 424 West 33rd Street? What's holding them back? Most of the office space seems to be cleared out, there's scaffolding on the sides, and construction lighting in the rear windows on most floors. However, the businesses there still seem to be operating on the ground floor. What gives? Raze it already...

I am not really sure, but wasn´t 424 West 33rd Street supposed to remain and another smaller tower sandwiched between it and MW5 on 33rd?

Yeah, because for many years Brookfield couldn't buy the property, but now they finally own it. Its future is in their hands now, so no compromises need to be made, theoretically.

Word is mullions, that's twice you misspelled it.... I could say the same for your spelling. If you're going to comment on a skyscraper forum, perhaps lookup how to spell the goddamn terminology.

Complain to Android's autocorrect I guess...maybe you could help them out with the spelling!

Amazon's future view from 5 Manhattan West in Midtown. Landlord, Brookfield Properties is reaping the rewards from a top-to-bottom $350M renovation of the 16-floor building shaped by REX Architecture. The 1.7 MSF structure, once nicknamed "the elephant's foot" and "the anvil," has been softened by a sawtoothed glass facade and an outdoor "breezeway" with views of the #HighLine . Amazon is slated to bring 2,000 high-paying sales, finance, marketing and IT jobs to the building with a 360,000-SF lease on the 6th and 7th floors. Whole Foods, which is owned by Amazon, will open a 60,000-SF ground floor market.

View from Empire/Moynihan Station





Roof Terrace of 5 Manhattan West












Highly recommend watching this video below:

It goes through the sweeping changes occurring from 8th Ave to 10th ave. The amount of development and investment is insane with just this project and Empire/Moynihan Station... without even showcasing the largest development in the country next door, Hudson Yards.

Too much unsustainable retail space in this Moynihan Station/Manhattan West/Hudson Yards area IMHO. Its being designed by old, out of touch baby boomers ... who will be too old to shop at these places when they are finished in the first place. Meanwhile all the young people will be shopping at Amazon.com instead.

The area needs more museums and restaurants instead.
