#22

How many buildings left to be demolished for this project?


#23

This one and the little white one with the gabled roof next door.


#24

this is a good example of an 800 foot tower that has flown completely under my radar. 1st I have heard of this one.


#25

Do you know about 15 E 30th and 281 5th?


#26

maybe? need to see a render. I have not memorized all of the street addresses.


#27

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’. :slight_smile:


#34

This has grown on me and looks much better in context after getting used to it for a few months.


#35

I think it looks great. Moshie Safdie is a great architect, and Ziel Friedman is delivering a nice tower here.


#36

The large building on the 30th Street side is gone.




#37

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.


#38

I agree, VG.
