They’re spending a lot to renovate the Pace building right now. It will be there for a while.
I’m confused again.
SSP has this same building listed as 23 Park Row @691’.
I can see the addy difference; but where’d the 11 feet come from?
Or is it a from-street-level vs. AMSL thing?
Could be a sea level thing. But there were a few height changes throughout the planning process, so maybe that could be the reason. I think 702 is the official height and that is above street level. So if there was a sea level height it should be higher by a little. They probably just didnt update the height there after the last update.
THis tower is gorgeous!!!
Glass is amazing.
Facade is amazing.
Design is amazing.
Just a reminder of what this block used to look like:
Downtown is undergoing such a renaissance. Just after 9/11, the area where the Fulton Street Transit Center now stands was a filthy warren of garbage. I won’t be pleased, however, until that filthy, two-story block on Maiden and Nassau is razed.
It’s horrible, and it detracts from the many gorgeous buildings nearby.
I want to believe that there is a certain part of Robert’s brain which is entirely reserved for awful buildings that should be razed hahhaha.
I hope this one is landmarked some day. I don’t know why but I love it.
I hope something replaces that 2 story and maybe the tenement north of it someday.
I like Gaga!
Now all that’s left are the tenements on the other end of the block.
