NEW YORK | 701 7th Ave (Edition Hotel) | 516 FT | 42 FLOORS


I still think there are enough older buildings in the surroundings that would make a restored 1 times square fit right in. You have the knickerbocker building and more importantly the paramount building which is right across the street. I think the contrast in between the old and new would also allow it to have more weight. It would immediately catch the eye and be a testimony to how far NYC has gone. But that said this is only in my very utopian view and I doubt anything of the old building is left under that facade so the second best option for me would be, like you said a landmark tower to dominate the area.


July 15th

Where the Cats sign is next door will be yet another ENORMOUS video screen. This area will be so bright at night!

I’ve always loved how this tower slopes out over 42nd St!



Neighbor to the north has a tall screen like the one at American Eagle Outfitters


071816 podium looks ready for the main hotel to rise above :slight_smile:


Nice pictures, Michelangelo! ^^
