That's just wrong, as we are the ones supplying THEIR content. No way to run anything, is it? No use in asking them to restore content. as it appears to be lost. But I can bitch about it all I want!
As a NY thread lurker I greatly share your frustration.

Time to change the height on the WPC (555 West 33rd) to 1011 and 308 meters. Look at post 91 on it's thread to see why.

That was a mistake made when deleting NYC's own P&C subforum. It was not intentional, the idea was to move all the threads to the proper forums but things got done in the wrong order.

Wow!! this project must be located not too far from that new sleek skinny One Madison Park building that just went up near Madison Square Park. I did take the D train down there today. I will go by there again tomorrow to see this. New York is certainly an urban oasis. It's Chicago on steroids

I added a note in the original post for fellows like you that are wondering about the old threads. Mods, if such questions arise again, kindly direct them to the first post in the compilation.

Which building is this? I don't recognize it.




I don't know the name of this one either, it's on Flatbush in Brooklyn.




The facade is really nice, I like it.

That is weird! I just took a picture of that same spot the other day, and when I saw it here, I thought, 'Wait a minute, how'd that get up there? I didn't post this!' (lol) .

When I was at this location, I thought it was a good scene representative of old NY, but now it looks like it's going to be contaminated by this thing that looks like it should be built closer to the river, like near Hell's Kitchen, or around Chelsea Pier, where they've got another similar bldg.

I forgot about these. The three new towers that are under construction in Williamsburg.

From Bedford Ave.


In Greenpoint looking back


Greenpoint Ave over Newton Creek. I didn't realize how far I'd walked that day until I looked back at where I'd been earlier.

I believe this one is Trump SoHo, but I may be wrong.

For all the whining about how Trump SoHo supposedly "vandalized" the neighborhood, it looks just fine...

This one is called Toren, and actually, thanks for the pics. I haven't seen an update of this one in a while and I had no idea what the facade looked like on. FANTASTIC!

Actually, I've worked in the area for the past year now and to be honest there are lots of cool older buildings that are so much nicer than this. If it were in midtown it would be fine, but it's pretty much just a glass box in the middle of a cool old neighborhood.

I am in the process of a pretty exhaustive job search, and I was wondering if anyone could give me a rundown of some of the bigger developers in New York, especially ones engaged in interesting projects. A PM would do just fine - thanks!

So we had a couple of nice days recently so i came out of my self imposed hibernation. It was nice to go out and takes pics again. Oh and new camera, no more smudged lens. (though the smudge in upper right corner was almost my watermark)

Anyways:
Brooklyn Update!
so everyone knows at this point the absolute clusterfuck that is the Atlantic Yards. I can not imagine a bigger mess than that. When they were designing the tallest tower there (miss Brooklyn) the biggest complaint is that the tower would overshadow the neighboring beauty, the Williamsburg Savings bank tower (now HSBC). It stands as Brooklyn's tallest at 511 feet. So Ratner dropped the height on Miss B to 510 to please everyone. I wonder if anyone realized that there are at least 4 towers in various stages of construction a few blocks away in downtown Brooklyn that will be taller than both Miss B and Williamsburg to be the tallest tower in Brooklyn

388 Bridge St. Between Fulton st and Willoughby
528ft. 49 stories


I was really excited when i saw the foundations being dug for this one and then when i went by last month, heartbreak. Chalk up another victim to the economy







More to come...

111 Lawrence st-brooklyn
514ft 51 stories



This was still full steam ahead with tons of crew working. By the end of this year this will be the tallest building in Brooklyn
