NEW YORK | 270 Park Ave | 1,341 FT | 57 FLOORS

I find that implausible. Once the DOB approves the NB application, we’ll see the diagrams that were filed, and we’ll have a reasonably good idea of what it looks like.

Hopefully, Norm won’t royally screw us again.

He had better not! If we’re losing one of the better International style towers, we had better be getting something great!

280 Park is horrible. Good thing it’s likely coming down in the next cycle.

I hope that 350 Park truly comes down too.

Lots of junk on Park needs to go: 280, 350, 405, 410. I hope 250 stays though. Unfortunately it looks like it might be replaced with a glassy tower, I saw this on KPF architect Trent Tesch’s instagram:

I think that 250 is very handsome. Demolishing 270 bugged me at first but if the tower’s good I don’t mind: 280, 345, and 350 are hideous atrocities that should go, but I’d especially like to see a mass wipe-out of setback Emery Roth Buildings for bigger and better towers.

its kinda surprising 250 has held on as long as it has. It would be cool if they could add a Savoy Plaza esque addition to it (but taller haha)

Foster designed this tower in Mexico. I expect 270 Park to be very similar in appearance based upon what we’ve discovered so far.

But the NY version would have those setbacks so it wouldn’t be as rectangular. But interesting…

That would be even worse than I’m expecting.

As ugly as this building might be, at least we know it will have a nice facade

hahaa! that building in Mexico is heinous as an anus!

I’m so indifferent to 50 HY. I hope that 270 Park is not as soporific.
