Villa scaffolding coming down this morning- might have a full view of the entrance by this afternoon!

What’s the rush? It looks like some of the joints still need mortar.

Is it me or are the final touches to this tower dragging? This topped out in May of last year and they haven’t even removed the construction hoist. I get that “topping out” is still far from done but i mean we’re getting close to a year and a half since that point.

Very nice!

I like the design of this building even though the place is obviously meant to provide yet another Manhattan real estate vehicle for the ultra-wealthy here and abroad to plug their money into. The little porte-cochère is a nice, silly little touch RAMSA has used before and I hope it helps shield residents from photographers’ lenses. Let the droves of ultra-wealthy Chinese, Saudis, Russians, etc. have at it and storm through the lobby like a mob of angry refugees on the way to their new apartments.

But Central Park South is not what I would call a residential neighborhood by any means. That kind of residential building and neighborhood can be found, as one example, in the many beaux-arts and art deco buildings along Central Park West, many of which have storied histories and to me at least seem far more “real” than a building like this.
