NYC for dodging the NIMBY bullet! Can't wait to see more projects along this section of waterfront... It's truly one of the last new skylines of Manhattan...

Comparing with another of SHoP's designs, for a proposed site in Boston. This one probably has more in common with SHoP's 9 DeKalb tower, but it makes me want to see
more of the Cherry Street tower's final design.

It was one of the more favored designs by the ArchBoston forumers.

Shop's great because they actually fully think through their buildings. It's refreshing.

Love this building. It might just be the renderings that make it appear more imposing than it really is to neighbors. I think this is going to look a lot lighter in reality and that green is going to look really awesome on the skyline.

There's something appealing about the Citicorp-esque stilts of this, but the reasoning is bonkers. At least at Citicorp, the building sits atop a subway hub and you can argue the extra plaza space under the stilts is needed to accommodate the pedestrian traffic. Here, it's just a head scratcher.

They could tear down the senior housing and accommodate the seniors in the new building. A simpler design could easily cancel out the expense of building replacement units, which would be brand new. In addition to the cost savings, it would also eliminate the fugly senior housing building.

I like those, I guess. They sort of remind me of the "designs of tomorrow" you'd see decades ago.

Skyscraper Proposed at 247 Cherry Moves Forward

Quote:
After plans were unveiled earlier this year for a 77-storey addition to the Manhattan skyline, The Department of City Planning has finally decided to move forward on the application. Leading New York City builder JDS Development is behind the project at 247 Cherry Street, which will feature a design by SHoP Architects.

You would then be adding extra layers to an already complicated plan to get this tower built. They can't just simply move the senior center, even though that would be the best option for the seniors. It would be even better if they could just put the seniors inside the building (consolidating the sq footage), but that's just not something that's automatically doable with the city. Anything that can avoid an approvals process is usually the best option for developers.

I promise you hundreds of hours and hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent investigating that very possibility. Stern decided to build now rather than wasting ten years in litigation; with victory meaning a crowd of tv cameras surrounding a line of tiny, impossibly old, kyphotic ladies being wheeled out of their precious concrete pile of crap for the last time.

Welcome to New York

Yeah East Broadway aka 6th Avenue line. Which is a good route if they want to stop anywhere along 6th Avenue via the F train.

Unique. I'll give it that. I think this is one that's hard to judge based on renders.

I agree.. for me the green is way too strong, if it was a much lighter green or darker green (like The Fitzroy), it would be much more palatable.
