Nomad - 202-204 Fifth Avenue

@openhousenyc

Quote:
Pocelanosa Group’s proposed expansion at 202-204 Fifth Avenue is up for Landmarks’ design review tomorrow. Designed by @CetraRuddy, the plan aims to unify two buildings into a cohesive design “that is a representation of the Porcelanosa brand while preserving and reflecting the unique history of the site.”

Upper East Side - 1230 Madison Avenue

@openviewnyc

Quote:
First peek at a new Robert A.M. Stern-designed apartment house beginning construction at 1230 Madison Ave. on the Upper East Side. The classically-tailored 20-story building will have just 15 residences—all full-floor units. The prime Carnegie Hill property is steps from Central Park and shares its block with the @Guggenheim Museum.

It's quite hilarious to see, with all the fancy artsy "art", how hard they try to hide the fact that the bland modernism inside hasn't anything to offer.

What should it have to appease your high standards? Water slide? Public floggings? It's nice you've stated your opinion. Thank you.

I'm talking architecture here. What I see there designwise is the same bland and uninspired corporate architecture we know for more than seven decades now. And it was never appealing this way.

It's a Frank Stella. Post War 20th Century kitsch.

I like that there is modern and traditional architecture popping up in Manhattan. It gives the borough a great balance.

JFK International Airport - TWA Hotel Grand Opening

The TWA Hotel, a spectacular midcentury time capsule, finally opens

Quote:
The iconic TWA Flight Center has officially reopened its doors, after 18 wasted years sitting in abandonment like a time capsule; a ghost of mid-century past, lurking just outside the airport's Terminal 5, now brought back to life thanks to a lot of money. The TWA project came to be through "an ambitious public-private partnership [that] was assisted by more than $36 million in federal rehabilitation credits and $5 million in state historic tax credits," according to a press release.
And the wonderful news is that the circa-1962 vintage vibe of the Eero Saarinen landmark has remained intact, thanks to a careful restoration and a preservation miracle—the place looks as good as it ever did. And it shall remain so until present-day humans—from bros donning sweatpants to Instagram influencers—ruin it. Which they will.
The complex—known as The TWA Hotel—opened following a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday morning, where Governor Andrew Cuomo was too scared to call the terminal what it is: goddamn sexy.
So what does this sexy new addition to one of the world's worst airports (but one of NYC's best!) mean for you? It means 512 hotel rooms, it means gorgeous lounges, it means rooftop cocktails by the pool, it means good (but still expensive) airport food, it means nostalgia. Here's the rundown:
















Quote:
Connie cocktail lounge

This 30-seat bar is built inside a restored 60-year-old airplane, made famous for breaking the transcontinental speed record on a flight from California to New York in 1946.










Quote:
Pool bar and observation deck

Over on the rooftop Pool Bar, an infinity pool overlooks the JFK runway. Open all year, the pool will be heated up to 100 degrees in the winter.

So many project openings this week in NYC. I believe the Statue of Liberty museum and the Empire Outlets in Staten Island opened this week as well.
