Holy smokes, guys! Have you seen this? We've got a generational talent on our hands.

Such sophistication! Such sense of context! Such concept of where the WTC Transit Hub already exists!

It's truly a wonder that someone can exert so much energy bad-mouthing other people's ideas and still have so much left over to execute their own.

It's true that "de gustibus non est disputandum", but after I saw that model on the previous page, I can only ask who would design a building with so inappropriate proportions for such a site? It even looks disrespectful in a way (at least to me).

Edit: The models were probably in some other thread, they were showing Lower Manhattan with the new design for tower 2, I just thought that the way in which the boxes were leaning looked disrespectful.

I'm really hoping we hear some good news about the tower by the end of this year. I'm past caring about which design they go with and just want to see this thing get off the ground already!

Can they at least do something about this portal? The connection was shown on WTC complex maps lying around the site over a year ago!

Really hope there aren't any more cuts to height regardless of design. I rather like the "twinning" thing that 3 and 4 WTC have going on height-wise. It would be cool if 1 and 2 had a similar situation. I'm guessing that's more the reason why BIG's design "leans" in towards 1 WTC (instead of the idea that it's facing away from the memorial).

What the hell is a portal? That looks like a door to me.

Fyi, this is what an example of an actual portal looks like:


"A portal is an opening in a wall of a building, gate or fortification, especially a grand entrance to an important structure." (Source)

Seems like my usage was right on the money, then. I don't like saying 'exit' or 'entrance' because they imply a unidirectional flow.

In addition to Chase and BlackRock looking at this, a new tenant has come up.

======================

Ernst & Young eyes New Jersey waterfront office space, may shrink Times Square presence

Quote:
EY, formerly known as Ernst & Young, plans to vacate a portion of its longtime Times Square home and shift some of its operations to New Jersey.

The accounting firm is negotiating to relocate as much as 170,000 square feet at 5 Times Square to the New Jersey waterfront, according to several sources familiar with the London-based company's search. Those sources said the firm is in talks to take space at 121 River St., an office building in Hoboken.

The deal in New Jersey would be EY's first step in a potentially bigger move to shift a large segment of its space out of its New York City headquarters at 5 Times Square, where it occupies nearly 1 million square feet, according to CoStar Group Inc. Beginning next year, the firm plans to start searching for space in lower Manhattan, where it is exploring locations for roughly half of its offices, sources said. It will likely keep some space at 5 Times Square or a new location in midtown.

EY acknowledged in a statement that it is searching for new offices but would not delve into the specifics of where or when it would move.

"EY continues to grow and expand our capabilities in serving our clients," a spokesman for the company wrote in the statement. "We are evaluating a host of locations, all aligned with our strategic plan to deliver service across the greater New York City marketplaces, including New Jersey and Connecticut."

It needs an anchor tenant so they can provide the needed finacing for construction to resume.
