Huh. It would be interesting and a bit surprising if they in fact re-use the existing structure for the new podium, as the article says. But that seems to be just speculation…
hopefully the tower will be beautiful.
Oh jeez. Have they made no progress in the past six months?
there is a stop work order posted
That flat roof is begging for a turret. I guess there’s no demand for such small spaces these days.
Huh. Not terrible, but perhaps a little plain or maybe even dated. It reminds of 230 Ashland in Brooklyn. At least this looks like it will use curved glass on the corner, which I’m always a fan of.
Decent filler. Almost anything would be better than what’s currently there. I’m glad it’s not all glass, that would have looked bad on this block.
work seems to have restarted here after a long shutdown for various violations
I walked by here yesterday. I heard loud noise from inside as if work was being done, although I couldn’t actually see any activity anywhere. It looks like the arch at the top of the corner is now gone (progress!) But man this seems like a slow demolition.
Swear to god it’s like they’re tearing it down with nail clippers.
