That is nice. The whole package of Waterline Square is well done; the landscape design, public art installations, playground, and buildings. The ‘all glass’ facade can be made attractive and inviting: as long as it is not a simple box - the shape of those buildings look like they were cut by a skilled diamond cutter.
I went here recently, all looked quite nice; good to see when something is really well done.
Three Waterline Square has the most kick-ass BMU in NYC!!! watch it in action!
Oh wow that’s pretty sick
If only they could all look this elegant.
That room with window-walls is nice. What better way to design that room when you have those rare and beautiful water front views.
Architectural design is as much about ‘function’ as it is about ‘form’ - I think it was Luis Mumfort who coined the phrase “form follows function”.
Surprisingly, I think Vinoly’s building is the best of this trio. Turns out even Vinoly, the Gene Kaufman of starchitects, can make a nice building every now and then.
WOW! That’s quite an insult. LOL!!
Maybe I was a little harsh. I’ve warmed up to 432 Park over the years. I actually like his Tokyo International Forum convention center from 1996:
I believe this is the right thread, but why is it so expensive? Lol I think the penthouse at the Brooklyn Tower is only $6 million, Manhattan tax?
You’re right that the PH at Brooklyn Tower is $6 million, but this PH is over 2.5 times bigger and has an outdoor terrace. But in addition to those differences, the price/sqft in Manhattan will always be more expensive than the other boroughs, it’s not necessarily due to a tax. The $/sqft at BT is ~$2,500, here it’s ~$4,150.
