Ну вообще-то в Детройте в 70-е построен знаменитый комплекс из 4-х квадратных стеклянных башен и круглого в плане еще более высокого здания (вроде в 270м) , находящегося в середине.
Если вы имеете в виду, комплекс "Реннесанс центр", там 4 башни по 159 м., а самая высокая в середине , в ней находится гостиница Detroit Marriott", (первоначально была "Вестин стемфорд")имеет 73 этажа. и высоту 222 метра (1977 г.)

Думали, что это будет толчком к возрождению города.
Но что-то не получилось...
НЕ берусь судить, почему.
Но когда летел над Детройтом в 2008-м из Чикаго в НЙ, видел и сам город и огромный аэропорт с семью ВПП....

Небоскребы-карандаши в Нью-Йорке лично мне действуют на нервы....:eek:hno:
ну вот да, забыл про него. но сейчас практически весь даунтаун города уже приведён в нормальное состояние и берутся за мидтаун. это конечно задача на годы, но процесс пошёл

Даунтаун Квинс
Было и стало.

Заметим за небоскрёбами длинные куски ж/д депо - его собираются закрыть платформой и на нём строить небоскрёбы. Это будет самая большая стройка в НЙ - там под 30 гектаров места.

Sven, LIC's future second-tallest building, approaches 50-story mark

The Skyline Tower has just claimed the crown of the tallest building in Queens (the concrete structure topped out in October, and the parapet above went up over the past week), yet a similarly-sized contender is already catching up nearby. Sven at 27-29 Queens Plaza North has climbed nearly 50 stories high, approaching its projected 737-foot, 64-story pinnacle. Reflective glass, sectioned in two-story bands, now covers the building’s lower half. The rental property, developed by the Durst Organization and designed by Handel Architects, will hold 957 units, nearly 300 of which would be affordable.

Sven, formerly known as Queens Plaza Park, anchors the northern end of the rapidly-growing Court Square skyline in Long Island City, and already dominates the Dutch Kills Green, a small square at the east end of Queens Plaza. Sven rises directly behind the landmarked Bank of Manhattan Company Building, a 14-story, crenellated clocktower that had dominated the local skyline since 1927. Today the high-rise looks rather diminutive, flanked by towers such as ALTA LIC and Aurora (the latter also a product of Handel), and now overshadowed by Sven itself. The rising skyscraper defers to both its older neighbor and the Green with a gracefully curved, concave facade, the building’s signature feature.

The landmark, incorporated into the new development with 50,000 square feet of commercial space, and the Long Island Rail Road lot to the north supplied the development rights to push Sven to an impressive 978,000 square feet, making it not just one of the tallest, but also one of the largest buildings in the neighborhood. When complete, Sven will surpass the iconic, 673-foot-tall One Court Square (former Citibank Building) to become the second-tallest skyscraper in the borough.

As expected at this stage of construction, the official website remains a sparse teaser, but the building’s self-evident perks speak for themselves. Floor-to-ceiling windows will offer 360-degree skyline panoramas that will look out as far as Brooklyn and New Jersey from the upper floors. The Queens Plaza station at the foot of the building and the nearby Queensboro Plaza offer five-minute access to Midtown via the E, M, N, R, W, and 7 trains, while the bridge allows for easy driving, biking, or even walking commute across the river. The shopping and dining districts in Long Island City and nearby Sunnyside and Astoria also lie within walking distance.

Sven’s rental prices remain to be released, yet we can make an estimate based on the building’s neighbors. ALTA LIC currently lists one studio for $3,114/month. Aurora offers a one-bedroom unit for just $3 more, at $3,117/month. Across Dutch Kills Green, Jackson Park lists three one-bedrooms averaging $3,261/month, and a three-bedroom for $5,800. Nearby Tower 28 offers a two-bedroom pad for $3,288.

Morris Adjmi-designed condo at 550 Clinton Avenue is ready to rise; Brooklyn tower will fund landmarked church renovations
By Vitali Ogorodnikov
12/19/2019

A major milestone has been reached for 550 Clinton Avenue, a 29-story, 337-foot-tall tower planned at the intersection of Atlantic and Clinton avenues in Brooklyn. According to the Commercial Observer, Jeffrey Gershon’s Hope Street Capital has secured a $180.3 million loan from Square Mile Capital Management and Pacific Western Bank for the construction of the 280,000-square-foot project, which will include 60,000 square feet of commercial space and 284 apartments.

The Fort Greene project is a significant example of mutually beneficial collaboration between the developer and the public: in exchange for development rights, the builder will restore the facade of the nearby Church of St. Luke & St. Matthew, an officially-designated landmark.

The project comes with ground-floor retail and a co-working center, as well as resident amenities such as a fitness center, a game lounge, and an outdoor pool atop the massive four-story podium. Morris Adjmi Architects’ staggered-pattern facade, reminiscent of The Artisan rental tower under construction at Essex Crossing, angles inward at the building base, creating a dramatic cantilever and a distinct skyline profile. Though the gesture opens extra resident space at the podium deck and creates larger floor plates at desirable upper stories, its genesis likely lies in its relation to the Church of St. Luke & St. Matthew, allowing its belfry to remain visible from Atlantic Avenue, a feature that would had been unavailable had the site been built out as-of-right rather than in a tower-on-a-podium scheme.

The tower would stand at the tripoint at the intersection of Fort Greene, Clinton Hill and Prospect Heights, advancing the eastern vanguard of the greater Downtown Brooklyn skyline. The nearest similarly-sized building is the 17-story, 278-unit condo at 550 Vanderbilt, built two blocks south in 2017 as part of the greater Pacific Park development. 550 Vanderbilt’s currently listed condos, which range from studios to four bedrooms and run from $650K to $5.995 million, give us a general idea of what to expect at 550 Clinton. The 13-story rental rising across the street at 525 Clinton Avenue will further soften the scale transition between the new skyscraper and the surrounding neighborhood.

After a deal with the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the developer will undertake a full facade restoration [PDF link, really cool, highly recommended - personal note] of the church designed by architect John Welch in an ornate Romanesque style and completed in 1891. The process will involve extensive cleaning and replacement of the building’s brownstone, sandstone, and granite features, as well as new slate shingles and a replacement for the metal cross atop the belfry. The mutually-beneficial exchange, which restores a local landmark while bringing hundreds of apartments to a housing crisis-stricken city, is a positive example of civic-minded development that ought to be emulated where possible.

As 550 Clinton rises over the coming years, the tower may quickly find itself among new company. Across the street from the 551-foot rental currently under construction at 18 Sixth Avenue, several high-rises are set to begin construction next year as part of Pacific Park. Such density is welcome in an area that has some of the city’s best transit access outside of Manhattan, with nearly a dozen subway lines and the Long Island Rail Road converging at or near the proximate Atlantic Terminal, allowing for rapid commute to Manhattan; 550 Clinton sits less than a block away from the Clinton-Washington Avenue station of the C train. The six-lane Atlantic Avenue is a proper promenade for a skyscraper corridor, and new public space planned at Pacific Park will supplement the parks and playgrounds already scattered around the neighborhood.
