This doesn't hold a candle to Trump's Vegas tower.

My post from another thread a couple weeks ago:


NY DOB sky-plane codes requiring the mass of the building to taper away from the streetwall as is gains height, so most new developments of any height or FAR are required to pull away from the streetwall to accomodate the requirement even if that makes for bad urban design or is aesthetically detrimental. Many architects and the developers that pay them meet this requirement in the most economically beneficial way by having only a very short (and almost always awkward) base that meets the property line while maximizing allowable square footage by building a shaft set back from the streetwall straight up so floorplates remain the same and floors are increased. This may make moderately taller structures on the side streets but destroys a very basic urban design tenet in the process, and in my opinion is a betrayal of the basic stewardship in guiding the building of the public realm the city is entrusted with.

For the unintended consequences see this tower or virtually all new budget hotel towers in the West 30s as well as throughout the city.

A particularly horrific example.

If we want change we have to get the NYC DOB to change these terrible building codes that encourage bad design! I am personally astonished that the requirements that result in these terrible insensitive outcomes have not been pressured to change years ago by the MAS or Landmarks or somebody with influence. Its a humiliating stain on this city that these structures have been built so prolifically and continue to be proposed year after year...

Contact the city! Encourage local media to cover the plague of this architectural trash!
