Nice update. Already forgot about this one. Glad they seem to be moving fast to demo now. That building on the right is crap indeed, especially compared to the one to the right of it.
Yesterday. More digging/foundation work
There were like 2 dudes working on this entire project today. I feel like this one might take a while.
I’m sure this will look good but comparing to icons like esb, Chrysler, 1wtc, flatiron, 30rock etc in this new rendering is a bit far fetched. No way it will come close to any of those.
Updated rendering here
A black facade building like this really needs gold or brass colored accents.
Glad to see the facade is now more streamlined, rather than being littered throughout with balconies as in the earlier render. However, I do dislike how the north facing balconies below the setback throw off the building’s symmetry.
Still, excited to see this rise–particularly that lovely crown and base!
First floor going up.
no way, it’s got that twenty foot wide five story crack house next to it
now that shyte will remain there forever

I love the fact that we’re living in a time of Art Deco Revival. That building looks beautiful.
Looks good so far. Can’t wait to see more detail at the base.
