Here’s a bit in the terra cotta:
Oh damn, I didn’t know they were going to build this over an existing building
When I was there and comparing it to this render I knew something had to be off because the empire state building would be in Brooklyn in the below shot. I figured it couldn’t literally be built right on top of the 10 story building in JC’s pic. Its going to cover a bunch of windows. Why don’t they just tear the little thing down?
only in new york would they build straight on top of another building, seriously where else would that even be considered!
That is some awesome work in Toronto, but I think he was talking about how it cantilevers over the existing structure.
