Historic pre WW2 Building styles planned

Hi guys, I have a real interest in pre ww2 building styles in New York, I know its probably a long shot but we are seeing so so many glass & steel structures being built in New York as of late.. any plans for buildings that are more to the tune of traditional styles?

my personal favorite is 99 Church Street, currently on hold. It's a residential building with a limestone facade like many of the pre-war buildings in Manhattan.

Love that last one. Not too showy, so it looks elegant. Also that planned skyscraper looks great.

That's beautiful...I saw that a Bonsai tree company has been so successful that they are moving into smaller premises...

New classical style Robert A. M. Stern highrise projects for New York in 2014:

15 Central Park West, 30 Park Place, 220 Central Park South, 520 Park Avenue

Imagelink

Imho, Stern should even go farther, add modern ornamentation, sculptures and feel free to innovate organically (compare to GE Building). My guess is investors are the ones who interfere once it might look too classical or Art Nouveauesque innovative.


1994 Fell Hall Highrise at Brooklyn Law School, NYC by Stern Architects:

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/F..._Fell_Hall.jpg

Neither a luxury condo or hotel tower, but a school.
There's loads of educational buildings in New Classical Architecture in the US, also many churches, public buildings, private residences and midclass condo towers.

Btw, Stern was the 2011 laureate of the Driehaus Architecture Prize. Read more about it here.
The award comes with a prize money of $200,000 - twice that of the famed modernist Pritzker Prize.




I also added Stern at this new thread: NYC Architects - Those who built New York City and its Image

I like this one in Manhattan's Upper East Side, some American architects really are still fluent in classical architecture language:

1110 Park Avenue, NYC

Simple, well proportioned, elegant, beautiful. Timeless.
