That is the ubiquitous design for ordinary developer towers. Huge amounts of glass reflecting the blue sky, allowing in huge amounts of light into each unit. That is the whole point of it. If they sell, the developers do not care one bit whether they are bland or inventive. There is too little market research as to whether the design of the building affects sales, unless it is a known starchitect, but two factors are known to matter. Location, Location, Location and Views, Views, Views! More glass, better views. Inventive designs simply cost more and have a minimal effect on views.

Well they need put some soul back in dem buildings !

NY was built on soulful buildings, not blocks upon blocks of glass dystopian towers that could be anywhere, mon.

91,000 Households Applied for 235 Affordable Hell's Kitchen Apartments

Quote:
91,000 applicants are gunning for a shot at 235 subsidized units in a luxury residential tower on West 42nd Street, the city's Department of Housing Preservation said.

The window to apply to live in Sky at 605 W. 42nd St. ended in July and now the leasing agents are embarking on the laborious selection process, a spokeswoman for HPD said.

Qualified households making between $31,132 and $51,780 will end up paying $868 for studios, $931 for one bedrooms and $1,124 for two-bedroom apartments.


Subsidized tenants have access to a lawn and children's playroom but have to pay extra to use any of the building's three pools, the Turkish-style hammam and spa, the putting green, the full-service restaurant, the fitness club and the regulation basketball court, according to the application and reports.

The 71-story building's 939 market-rate apartments are running at around $3,000 a month for a studio, around $4,000 for a one-bedroom and nearly $6,000 for two bedrooms, according to a listing.

Construction on the $850 million project is nearing completion, according to reports, and some of the market-rate apartments on lower levels will be available in late October. Those on higher floors will be ready in the spring, a worker at Sky's leasing office said.


The 235 affordable units were funded through the state's controversial 421-a tax abatement, where developers get tax breaks for building a certain amount of affordable units.
