NEW YORK | Various News About Our City and Q&A

AMAZING! We really are the new City of Lights. This is the 21st century! The Age of Ramses!

NEW YORK CITY!


#102

It really is the age. Stuck on the BQE in slow traffic, the majority of the skyline was visible, and I just thought, damn… too impressive!

And I try to find other cities that are better, but thus far, the search has failed.

It’s the gold standard for a reason. :blush:

For anyone who’s confused or didn’t catch the YIMBYgram, these are visions designed for Metals in Construction Magazine’s “2030 Challenge,” meant to showcase new sustainable construction techniques and facade types. Mercifully, no one is actually proposing replacing the Grace Building.

These finalists came up with some pretty cool concepts. The ODA design obviously calls back to I.M. Pei’s unbuilt Grand Central tower…

…which I always thought was a cool standalone design, but really ill-suited to NYC. A few detractors have suggested ODA’s concept only belongs in Qatar, Dubai or China, but I think it would actually fit in really well alongside some of the curvy 21st Century towers in London.

Clip from a couple of years ago, but interesting per say.

Now in 2017, as the housing program is becoming ever more dynamic, micro units could be a feasible addition to the various developments.

Click on tab to go to different neighborhoods. Can zoom in and out and scroll as well. Give it time to load though.

Ok, so I played around with this diagram of the Big Bend concept:


And then I took pieces of 111 W 57th and stacked it up to the height of the Big Bend, and they lined up really well

So with using the measurments of 111 W 57th, I got a total height of 2,162 feet
