Reading that article gets more depressing with every awful rendering for each development site. Poor downtown.

Well, have they eliminated the red accent panels or not? Ha!

I really like the roof top trees, normally they look tacky, but in this case they look nice.

I kinda like it; but it looks a bit too much like a cross between a Chia pet and a half-eaten corn cob made of Legos.

This is a beautiful tower. I hope that it's actually rising.

I believe there's a tower crane at the site. They had been digging for quite a while.

I think that only one of the buildings on this site has been demolished thus far.

Crane is up for the 800 footer down the street, it's this.

Based on the last photo/rendering it looks more like 700 feet and not 498 feet.

hopefully they ditched the 'college dorm' red panels?

i think this eliminated a building next to the fulton transit station with one of my favorite old signs, for typewriters/facsimile machines.

Work Begins at ODA/HMWhite's "Forest Tower" at 75 Nassau, See New Renderings of the Landscaped Spaces







Quote:
Lexin Capital’s long-awaited residential tower proposed for the Financial District site is showing signs of life. First publicized in 2014, 75 Nassau Street will be a 45-floor rental-condo hybrid designed by the popular firm of ODA New York. Crews of construction workers can now be seen erecting scaffolding, readying the humble huddle of 19th-century buildings for their upcoming rendezvous with the wrecking ball (more like a slow dismantling).
The project site is midblock on Nassau Street between Fulton Street and Maiden Lane, and behind the Fulton Street Transit Center. Nassau is one of our favorite streets in the area because of its narrowness, crookedness, lack of car traffic and ambiance of Bishop’s Crook lampposts and small storefronts. As is the case of many century-old, unprotected low-slung structures in Manhattan, walking away from them runs the risk of them being gone upon your return.

The 307,000-square-foot project will remove five buildings whose ousted tenants include a New York & Company, a coffee shop, and the clothing chain De Janeiro, which has since relocated across the street. According to The Real Deal, the site and air rights were purchased in 2014 for $63.4 million. Since then, most of the buildings have sat vacant with one being demolished.

As a follow up to the above, how it will look in the skyline. Granted older, but not posted here until now. Has a nice impact on it, even at its height.

I just hope they don't let the trees get too tall, i.e. higher than the enclosed top, which IMO they could've made just a bit more decorative to complememt the greenery.

If only trees counted as spires. Place a mature Sequoia "redwood", and this thing could reach 700 ft.

Good bye Rat Diner (it closed a long time ago and has had a rodent infestation warning sign in the window, hence the nickname Rat Diner).

Will they also be including the Wendys at 85 Nassau?
