Smile NEW YORK | Radio Tower & Hotel | 295ft | 22 FLOORS

Uptown Manhattan is not known for its skyline. Perhaps this could change that.

“Radio Tower & Hotel” Breaks Ground at 2420 Amsterdam Avenue in Washington Heights, Manhattan

Quote:
[...]
the building will contain 145,000 square feet of office space with sweeping, loft-style floor plates. Retail positioned on the ground floor will occupy 8,000 square feet. The onsite hotel partner has not been confirmed, but that component will contain 221 guest rooms measuring a total 93,000 square feet. The building will also include an unspecified collection of amenities, an event space, a rooftop restaurant, landscaped terraces, and an interior, open-air courtyard.

This :snicker-chortle: "proposal" would be positively laughed out of the studio of even the most imbalanced, legend-in-his-own-mind designer high-rise architect, be it here or the planet Neptune.

It is neither quaint nor kitschy, innovative nor inviting, completely unwelcome in any imaginable urban or suburban context one would wish have spring to mind. Matter of fact, it looks like something I personally would like to think deserves its own ranch somewhere in the Rio Grande Valley as a treatment center for bipolar rodeo clowns.

I don't know exactly how I feel about this. It seems like the coloration could be fun and interesting but at the same time to have that color be so permanent, as opposed to say white glazed brick with thousands of embedded LED's where they could turn them off and on and change the coloration, is quite the risk taking.

Without the color I like the scale and proportions. Honestly, the color doesn't bother me, it's more so the material. Glazed brick is very tricky; I find it better served as an elegant feature, not as a massive blanket/facade. When you go that route, especially with generic coloring, it tends to scream subway/student center more so. Hopefully it comes out decent.
