NEW YORK | 316 Fifth Ave | 535 FT | 40 FLOORS

All that building needed was a good pressure washing and it would have looked great. Sucks to lose it.


#32

Don’t think there’s another city that has lost so much great architecture intentionally.


#33

Whatever goes up here better be worth it.


#34

I am still fuming over this travesty


#35

100% agree r.i.p. Kaskel & Kaskel

I decided to memorialize it in Minecraft.


#36

no visible change - probably a lot of asbestos to remove on the interior


#37

The “developers” are the TALIBAN!!!


#38

Rough stuff.


#39

I wouldn’t be happy to lose this Even if the site included the garbage on the rest of the block. It’s a real kick in the gut to lose the gems and keep the s.hit.

Only in NY, can there be a $1.5m one bedroom next to filthy pieces of garbage.

#42

#43

These Taliban suck.

#45

Disgusting!


#46

#47

The developers shoulda followed the precedent further up fifth ave by keeping the facades.
