Could this be a sneak peak with their latest design?



It shows 2 Manhattan West the tallest of the group and 3 Manhattan much much taller with a sleeker profile. Here's a screen shot in Manhattan West newly release promo video dated May 9th (Friday).

Huh? That's nothing new, it doesn't show it taller either, those are the two 935' towers and the residential, I really hope that's not what will be built.

Two glass boxes and a residential highrise, meh, originally there was a supertall involved and could have been a more interesting design too.

Can't say I'm that excited about this project

3 Manhattan West (Residential) design is different than the one in this pic. it's much more taller and sleeker looking like a 60 storey tower should be. I like the newer look better for me.

supposedly these renderings are just massings, i'm worried about that being false and Manhattan West will be the most banal development in the Hudson Yards.

Oh I see, still not much of a difference though, still a bland box and not that tall.

I also hope they are just massing models but I have a feeling it will end up looking like this because it looks kinda official, mediocre design to say the least and the height is just okay, nothing special for NYC.

Wow, that covered area on 5 manhattan West, with the sloped pillars, really proves that the reclad is necessary. It will breathe a whole new life into the existing building without losing the original architect's overall form, and reminding people about the beauty of sloped sides.

A render I don't think was posted:

I like that the shape of the new glass is also a bit reminiscent of glass framing from the original building's era.

Yea, I still think everything we had seen so far are definitely massing models. The fact that we had seen 2-3 versions of the Residential tower suggests the design is in flux.

I'm still hoping for the best for this project, but it's clear what we had seen so far SOM's design for Manhattan West are not architecturally exciting and it seems they are just going conservative squeaky clean corporate look for their towers.

Imo, what we seen so far I don't think they are bad nor ugly. Boring yes but when these puppies actually start rising if they do decide to build what we had seen, the actually thing may turn out way better than those renderings.

Thanks for the heads-up on the Facebook page. Didn't even know they had one (only 32 likes so far, so apparently nobody else does either).

The video is a fun watch, though this little fantasy made me chuckle:

the recent renderings and massing are consistent.

I agree, the smaller residential tower has changed, but the main 2 towers have pretty much stayed the same; infact I can't see any difference tbh. They also seem to be advertising and showing a fair amount of renderings of these buildings. I really don't understand why they'd be doing this if the final buildings were to change.

They also seem to have the plaza and ground levels pretty much set in stone by the looks of it. I can't see them changing the towers too much as you can't just simply change the top half of a skyscraper without tweaking the rest.

The designs are fairly simple, but they have a subtle curve to them with a slight crease in some of the edges for the facade.

Also the towers seem to be fatter than the earlier renders, so maybe there is a height decrease? These warped and wide angle shots are normally very deceiving though...

I agree. This render is more 'looking up' than the previous ones.
The perspective is different and that makes comparisons in height impossible.

Next! Brookfield’s Ed Hogan has Las Vegas check list
http://www.rew-online.com/2014/05/14...as-check-list/

Quote:
One of the most talked-about retail centers is lower Manhattan’s Brookfield Place (formerly the World Financial Center) which is undergoing a $250 million upgrade to its retail and public space.

Brookfield’s director of retail leasing Ed Hogan will be attending the International Council of Shopping Center’s annual RECon convention in Las Vegas May 18-20, a global gathering for those in the retail industry. While he said he will be taking “a lot” of meetings, he is looking more toward the future.

“We’re really starting to focus on our next project for Brookfield which is Manhattan West, near the Hudson Yards Project,” said Hogan.

Manhattan West, a giant project at 9th Avenue and 33rd Street, broke ground in 2012 and will have two 65-story office towers and a 60-story residential tower a block east of the Hudson Yards project. The five-acre site will have seven million square feet of office and mixed-use development.

“We do have a few deals wrapping up for Brookfield Place,” said Hogan, who added that the retail is fully leased pending a few signed deals. “We’re in a very good position.”

If the towers remain looking like these bores, the developers must be devoid of design interest and are probably only interested in maximizing profits. This is 21st century efficiency architecture at its finest. The only thing that is nice is the plaza.
