I feel like Essex crossing could’ve been 50-100% denser and the neighborhood would’ve been fine.

One Essex Crossing (202 Broome Street):

About 40 stories too short. Delancey is like 10 lanes wide. So much for community board input planning.

This building is genius in terms of construction technology formulated for fast, easy and low cost assembly. The poor aesthetics we see here is the inevitable outcome of such VE cost cutting measures: an artless, building standard, generic architectural design. Pour two different sized concrete boxes, put one on top of the other, then attach flat rectangular metal/glass panels to metal clips on the edge of each floor plate: fast, efficient, easy - genius.

I am particularly disappointed in this architectural design because of the prominent position of this building facade given the fact that Delancey Street is a ‘Grand Boulevard’ many lanes wide.

Here is a fairly accurate LEGO ‘digital twin’ which serves to illustrating the assembly details that went in to constructing this building.
