How many buildings left to be demolished for this project?
this is a good example of an 800 foot tower that has flown completely under my radar. 1st I have heard of this one.
Do you know about 15 E 30th and 281 5th?
maybe? need to see a render. I have not memorized all of the street addresses.
ya I have seen that before but it is definitely under the radar.
Great article by the talented Evan Bindglass on New York Yimby:
Moshe Safdie is a way better architect that the Hack Vinoly, and This project is much nicer than the lame box across the street at 281 Fifth.
I only wish that HFZ were not stripping the facades of the beautiful old townhouses.
Nice! ESB getting some company … and it’s 796’.
This has grown on me and looks much better in context after getting used to it for a few months.
I think it looks great. Moshie Safdie is a great architect, and Ziel Friedman is delivering a nice tower here.
800’ tower in close proximity to the ESB is no joke. I like Safdies work & I think this design will stun and i think it will look kinda like 56 Leonard?..sort of.
I agree, VG.
what’s happening with that building covered in netting in the first picture??
I hope they are not demolishing it!
