Central Park Tower
New York, New York

Knitted within a visually complex commercial building block context, HMWhite’s terrace design introduces garden walls and a landscape framework to spatially organize a sequence of complimentary garden rooms. Calming human scale is achieved through the garden architecture definition and common material language. With a central open lawn, a common gathering space promotes flexible uses while implying a shared sense of community. Passive and active recreational activities are accommodated by the fluidity of the garden room configuration to deliberately foster a strong sense of community and common fellowship. Empowering the belief that design intelligence inspires social engagement and positive civic behavior, the Garden Commons serves as the building’s “village green.” Functioning as the residents’ personal back yard, the garden terrace offers a sanctuary destination and a visual amenity to witness the garden’s seasonal evolutions.

Not the clearest image, but clearly beginning to rival 432 Park for prominence...

Although I generally much prefer 111 W 57th street, the outdoor/amenity decks of this look AMAZING.

I wonder what the view looking up at the tower from that space looks like.

It changes colors. I saw it beginning to glow red last week when I was walking through, but hadn't seen it that color before and thought it was another effect.



An older skyline view, but I like how it shows the more prominent towers on the skyline...

It sure is. It's currently at 4th, and will be knocked to fifth, and soon after 6th. Sometime next year it will be 7th.

Meanwhile, the finish for the NYC Marathon (sunday) will have a great backdrop...

A misguided effort, beyond a shadow of a doubt
The shadow warriors are pushing measures that will increase housing costs—the last thing the city needs


The Editors
November 1, 2018


Quote:
Millions of New Yorkers struggle to afford housing, and some 70,000 don't even have any. Meanwhile, the Municipal Art Society is worried about … shadows.

Tall buildings, it seems, are increasingly positioning themselves between the sun and members of this organization as they work on their tan along the southern edge of Central Park. Well, boohoo.

Of course, the shortage of affordable housing in the city does not mean advocacy groups should stop focusing on other issues, even ones that are trivial by comparison. We don't begrudge the activists seeking alternatives to shooting the Canada geese at risk of being sucked into the engines of planes at our local airports. But the shadow warriors are proposing measures that would lead to higher housing costs, which is the last thing the city needs.
Quote:
They have recruited to their side usually thoughtful Councilman Mark Levine, a Manhattan Democrat. Ironically, before entering politics, he created a credit union to help disadvantaged New Yorkers make ends meet. It is unfortunate that he has introduced a bill at the request of tall-building howlers to "tackle this problem before the next boom on supertall towers attacks Central Park," as he put it in a press release.
Quote:
Levine's bill would get the ball rolling by forming a task force to study the effects of the shadows that skyscrapers cast over city parkland. We'll save him the trouble and expense: Shade is a bit darker and cooler than sunlight. It comes in handy on hot days, and it's one of the reasons there are more than 20,000 trees in Central Park.
Quote:
The Municipal Art Society has created a nifty webpage that depicts what the park would look like if the handful of towers proposed alongside it were built. The answer is, almost entirely bathed in sunlight for most of the day. Ditto for Downtown Brooklyn's parks, according to the website.

I've always wondered how those cranes get moved up after they run out of room. Anyone care to shed some light?
