LOL, it's as much architecture as anything else.

Question: the site has been cleared, yet no sign of impending construction. Is that typical of development in Manhattan? Are there any holdups for this project from a government/community board/zoning point of view?

Is this building twisted or not. I've illustrated it with a slight twist, but in some of the recent model it appears to be straight. Also the recent addition to the NYC diagram the illustrator drew it as straight-wall. So I'm a bit confused. Are my eyes deceiving me!

Looking closer at thse rendering, I see it as being twised basically the same way as the proposed Waldorf=Astoria in Chicago but to a lesser degree. And with the obtuse corners cut off. Making sense?

This thing is going to look magnificent in person. I imagine the combination of that glass and it's curve is going to make for a very striking presence.

Usually they have the plywood fence with flyers on it of a million different things (un-related to the project), and then a board with the construction company name, the developer, the bank investing in the project, the contractor, and a render of the building. Look at the 11 Times Sq. site as an example of a typical scene.

There is no hold up, its all depending on the developer, who in turn will probably wait for demolition of the block south, and areas to the east. The red apartment building directly next door (also owned by Sherwood) is supposed to be vacated, if not already, soon. The site that was cleared was just for the footprint of the tower (at least as it stands now).

You can see a little of the twist in these photos...






I think the stacking diagram was done with this in mind...

It seems like that diagram was made for the view from the southwest/northeast.. both the southwest and northeast corners are straight and the adjacent corners are slightly curved.

I like that this building is hard to figure out.. it gives it a neat dynamic.

The more I think about it, its similar to the Freedom Tower in that way. The profile will depend on the angle of your view.

That curvature is too subtle to make it look like an eccentric design, but its subtle enough to make the viewer think something is off. Vexing IMO.

One thing is certain about this tower, it will add to the mindblowing development taking place on the west side of Manhattan...

That it will. And this is yet another example of a tall building that will gather little attention, where as in other cities would be the focal point.

It's one of the proposals for the Hudson Yards development.

Can't wait for this pioneer to rise, since a tower of its size will give less credibility to nimbies to bitch about the "anti-urban" character of this "Hong Kong on the Hudson"

Nice to see an architecture school snob on here. Thanks for giving architects in general a bad name, making people think that anyone who received an education in architecture is as much of a stuck-up elitist as you are.

....ich, not loving the "Hong Kong on the Hudson" label, but I get your drift. This is an outstanding way to get the ball rolling down there.

Yeah, its a reference to the west side NIMBYs who are horrified that there could be tall buildings built over the railyards.

Ha that's funny too, it even scared me a little. But I think that's more because I hate to hear people compare New York with anywhere else.
