The old synagogue is fully demolished and it is ready for excavation.

The NIMBY's are winning and blocking this beautiful tower! They won a court decision that will force another review of the project to check if it was legally rezoned for the tower.

This is back on and there are fresh renders of the tower highlighting its base and crown.

It will have 112 condos across 283,000 square feet of total floor space and be completed sometime in 2020. It will be eclipsed by more than 100 feet by 50 West 66th so it will not be the tallest on the Upper West Side.

The details on this tower are a little too fussy. Looks like an 80s or 90s postmodern building.

Beats a 2000s crapfest like 15 William New York/William Beaver House, or 2010s bore like 432 Park Avenue. If this type of postmodernism makes a comeback, I'll be cheering it.

This is the worst abbreviation that I have ever seen.

Anyway, to me this tower looks like a modern neo art deco approach towards the 1930s era towers. It has a lot of detail and character. It also has a slight asian hint, which I really like. This and the tower on 66th will do good for the UWS. Hopefully we will see a few of those Shanghai Bund towers randomly placed here that give this part of the skyline a new identity.

To me it looks like every single new tower looks like neo Art Deco to the german members.
Even if it doesn't have an A from Art Deco.

It definitely has an art deco influence. Whatever you want to call it, I like it.

If they keep the design, this will be a stunner considering the area. My main issue with the design is that it breaks the streetwall. I wish zoning regulations would be put in place that inhibit this trend. One of the most striking features of Manhattan during my first visit was the unbroken pressence of massive, glorious pre-war streetwalls in Midtown. i dont think any other city in the world has uninterrupted streetwalls of such scale and grandeur.

Still, this is one of the more exciting projects in Manhattan, imo.

There were actually some shenanigans with the zoning of this project that enabled it to grow as tall as it will be. Something about how it sits on a parcel which was assembled wrongly and it slipped past the DOB. Locals only became aware as the foundation was just starting and now it's too late to do anything about it without taking jobs away before demolishing what is already there.

Looks like the crew is pretty far along with foundation construction. I dont see how anti development activists could stop this now. Fingers crossed.

yes, it would be counter-intuitive. In latest news, they've reached street level and a tower crane has risen.
