This looks surprisingly nice.
Can you post the picture here Robert? I don’t have access to the WSJ.
The WSJ site won’t let me save the photo.
I’ts pretty nice for affordable housing on a City-owned lot.
Screen shot or snipping tool?
My friend who works for the city showed me the current design theyre putting through the ranks of approval, and it looks hideous!
This is so bad that we almost have to laugh. What exactly is this thing???
I know Halloween is coming, but I didn’t know it extended to architecture too!
Gene Kaufman approved …
This is akin and worthy of winning the Nobel Peace Prize from Kaufman. Worthy of the Gene Kaufman and Sam Chang International Hall of Fame of Bad Architecture located at 123 Broken Dreams Lane located on the Upper East Side of a Dumpster.
That is, no exaggeration, the ugliest building I have ever seen
The poor have no “right” to live in Manhattan.
I’d like to live in Palm Beach, but I accept that I can’t afford it.
In the timeless words of Adam Sandler in Billy Madison “GOOO!!!”""
Trust me I know, I got a chance to see a 3d rendering from another connect in the city and let me tell you ITS SOMEHOW WORST
Not the worst design in the city and more along with what I expected from a super passivehaus tower.
100% affordable buildings should be illegal
not only does it lead to gene kaufman on steroids crappola but it has always contributed to segregation in American cities
I think whats mostly upsetting about this building is its prominent location, its right in front of the Javits Center facing new jersey, this will be highly visible from every waterfront city in Jersey and will stand prominently without much obstruction. Its not like other Gene Kauffman buildings that are deeper into the city mostly on 6th or 7th ave shielded by other taller buildings around it.
