Really interesting project, if the cladding is of high quality, this might turn out fantastic.
I wouldn't mind having one of those 1-floor-apartments in the upper tower floors.


But I'm curious about the predecessor of Carnegie57 / One57.
What was demolished for its site? Looking at its neighbours, I suspect it sadly was some classic old building

It doesn't look like something special.

But it indeed WAS an old classic building, like I supposed. Meh. They should rather tear down ugly 70s-blocks.

Thank you Momo!

But it's nice that you don't ACT like it, like another member on here who shall remain nameless. (Until he outs himself by responding to this post.)

Otie fantastic renders lately. The design of that curved one will become the norm for developers around the world to show off their building compared to others nearby.

I hope you copyrighted the idea.

I rather prefer a free use of the ideas; besides, copyright doesn't protect ideas, methods or concepts, at least not in the US. What I can protect is my work... Naahh, I'm not that selfish. Glad you liked it!

You do know who Andrew Carnegie is right?

Not many post war buildings along that stretch of w. 57th St. The area was built up around "Automobile Row" and a few better examples of those turn-of-the-century structures have been landmarked. In the end, 157 W. 57th St. was just architectural salvage...

June 26th, Dan Burnett..

Still no movement, but new crane section can be hope for something soon..

Edit: actually they did raised windscreens for one floor..On one of the first pics are visible yellow hangers which were holding windscreens on that floor..They usually take them down right after they lift windscreens..So the growth is recent..

Thanks for posting Dino. Not sure I see the brackets you are referring to.

However, in the last two pics which are from the 58th Street side you can see the wind screen as it relates to the concrete blocks of the adjascent building. The top of the windscreen is at the bottom of the second block. I will carefully photograph this each week and we will then see if there is movement. Hopefully there will be.

Any idea what is going on?

I'd say it was an old building, but hardly classic. For example there is a big controversy over the Hotel Pennsylvania possible demolition for a pretty ugly but tall and fat skyscraper. Hotel IS classic and IS old and was build by famous architect.
This here is just another brick building that looked very grim at the time I saw it last in 2003. in fact the whole street on this side was something like an old and crappy block despite the Carnegie hall right across the street.

I hate when people talk about hotel Penn, like it's some crown jewel. It's a busted up hotel that's not worth saving.

New Yorkers somehow don't seem to know what they actually have with buildings like the Pennsylvania Hotel.
That's NYC. And it's slowly disappearing since decades. Besides, that's one of the central affordable hotels that'll be missing.

Sorry, New Yorker here. But Pennslyvania Hotel is just NOT worth saving. The only thing that looks good is the front entrance.
