The original proposal was great. It was pretty unique and well executed.

This new proposal is lipstick on a pig. Another box with gimmicky features that will probably look tacky as hell in real life

It'll be interesting to see closer up renderings of the facade. Hard to tell if its of okay quality or decent from a design standpoint.

New Renderings of David Adjaye's First New York Skyscraper: Wall Street Tower
May 22, 2017
Quote:
Architect David Adjaye’s second building commission in New York is a big one. Three years after completing his textured affordable housing building known as the Sugar Hill Development, the acclaimed Ghanaian-British designer has been enlisted by David Lichtenstein’s Lightstone Group to design a 61-story, 750-foot-tall condominium in the heart of the Financial District. Named Wall Street Tower, despite its address on Fulton Street between Gold and William streets, the building will join a necklace of new developments transforming the northern end of the once stodgy-commercial district.






More info & renderings of the project HERE.

Not too crazy about the top.

Its okay. It'll pass. Although the first rendering with the god rays and lighting make it seem like tower is godsent. Well, its not. Its not the baby jesus of towers. That would go to Verre and Steinway, because those are the new holy towers, next to the ESB.

But 130 William, it'll do. It'll be noticeable and somewhat dominant for the area.

I think with the facade, the saturation of light doesn't give a good idea of what it's all about. Maybe a closer rendering is needed. The 1st one is too far away.

At least on the bright side, it's not 5 Beekman!

With a name like the Wall Street Tower, I'd expect something more grandiose. This is not living up to its name. Unless that facade is made out of gold... than... it would make sense.

For some inexplicable reason, the eastern half of the financial district has been an architectural dead zone for decades. Gehry's Beekman tower is a very rare exception. It has been where the worst architects have created stinker after stinker. This tower may not be spectacular but it will be very nice, and for that I am grateful. Adjaye is the man. This will turn out better than you guys anticipate.

^ I'm in agreement. The arched windows looked kind of PoMo to me at first, but I have grown to like them. Very unique for a building of this size. The pool areas are structurally mesmerizing. And last, the gold and limestone(?) facade has a very 80s/90s Wolf of Wall Street feel. Love it.

The top is fine, an extension of the structure. But the bricked up windows of the mechanical floors is just horrible. That's an opportunity to do something very artistic with the space. Zero effort made, shoddy work.

Adjaye's Harlem project is horrible and a blight on the graceful neighborhood of Sugar Hill.



This FiDi project is not much better. It's straight out of Philip Johnson's wastebasket. It might look better near Lincoln Center.

Interesting. On a whole, I like it.

Pros: golden facade, curved windows
Cons: top, line of two 'non-windows'

What the hell are those things? It looks like two rows of windows have been boarded up with plywood. And what's happening at the top? Is that the core visibly extending to the top? Cooling tower? What?

Since the 6sqft article indicates the renderings are not final, maybe these unaesthetic elements will be improved or eliminated.

It does have a very Lincoln Center/70s vibe, especially with the window shape and gold framing. It reminds me also of the interior of the old short black WTC buildings.

The crown looks like an aqueduct. I have no idea what the cube/tower is beyond - must be a strange mechanical shed.

Really no use in commenting yet, we don't really know what the final design will be:

Quote:
Though these initial concept images are interesting, there is no telling what the final renderings will look like. A spokesperson for Adjaye Associates has stated that they "only reflect early conceptual studies of the building."

S/he also stated: "We remain in the process of refining and evolving the design, with imagery adjusting accordingly. We look forward to sharing final renderings in the coming months.” We'll be following the project closely.
