I actually like 55 Water, and 1 and 2 NY Plaza! That doesn't stop me from liking the older ones too, though

Ya, i really cant understand why people don't like them i think there great. As for buildings like 200 Water st. 175 Water st. and 80 Pine st. they are what have destroyed Lower Manhattan's eastern skyline....

After the AIG bailout with taxpayer money, perhaps citizens should mount a "no payment without representation" and demand access to what must be a fantastic observatory.

What!? This is a nice building but it is nowhere near as beautiful as the Chrysler building. And by SSB I assume you mean ESB? Empire is also better... Sorry, some things just are not subjective... lol

Luxury apartments, hotel planned for 70 Pine



December 27, 2011

Quote:
A joint venture between Real Estate Developer-Owner Metro Loft and Eastbridge Sarl closed on the acquisition of 70 Pine Street for a price in excess of $200 million. Metro Loft’s conversion plans for the iconic 66-story, 952-foot Art Deco building include over 700 luxury apartments, with a high-end hotel occupying the remaining area of the building.

When completed in 2013, the landmarked tower will be one of the three tallest residential buildings in New York City. Many of the residences will have panoramic views of Manhattan, Brooklyn and New York Harbor.

When completed, the building will be the 11th tallest residential tower in the World, according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

The limestone tower features an observation deck on the top floor with an enclosed glass room that offers breathtaking views of the city and New York Harbor.

Anyone have any good pictures of this building's observatory and/or the views from it?

Edit: other than the one we have already seen on this thread.
