Thumbs up NEW YORK | Trump World Tower| 861 FT / 262 M | 72 FLOORS | 2001

the black monolith in NYC ... from wikipedia:

Trump World Tower is a residential skyscraper at 845 United Nations Plaza (First Avenue between 47th and 48th Streets) in Manhattan, New York City. Construction began in 1999 and concluded in 2001. Designed by the architect Marta Rudzka, the building is 262 meters high and has 72 constructed floors (but lists 90 stories on elevator panels) with curtain wall facades of dark, bronze-tinted glass.[1] The resulting large windows allow for extensive views of the East River and midtown Manhattan. The building is constructed with concrete to improve its wind resistance.

No longer the tallest residential tower in NYC. Sooner or later, I'm sure Trump will seek to regain that title.

Not one of the best looking, but one of the best standing skyscrapers. It's pure, boxy form is what I think skyscrapers are all about.

I have to say, I used to agree with you, until I moved here. The idea of a modern black box was really refreshing, but I just think it was horribly executed. The design almost comes off as post-modern, with groups of windows blocked in by spandrels over the floorplates and running vertically up the columns. The facade is entirely devoid of any detail that contributes to a modernist building. The symmetry that is pleasing to both modernist and post-modernist buildings is markedly absent because of uneven vertical spandrels that are revealed under any amount of direct light. Then the facade shows its true lack of depth, with its beige-appearing window punch-outs set against a gold-black glass.

Trump definitely has better towers, I think Chicago's is by far his best, though at least its not a pink disaster like Trump Palace. World Tower is middle of the road for me. It doesn't really detract, but it doesn't really contribute anything either.

Wasn't this tower at one point during its earliest years the slimmest in NYC?

Great form, proportion and concept. Poorly executed facade.

I don't really consider 40 Wall a Trump Building. It was built before he was born, so he doesn't get credit for it.

Anyhow, I have to agree with him, I used to think "OMG its the monolith from 2001 Space Odyssey", but was sorely disappointed to find out that the pure black monolithic form was often broken up by the poorly executed detailing when the lighting conditions were not perfect. Heck this used to actually be one of my favorite buildings in the world until I saw it up close. It certainly has great massing and all and definitely photographs well. Its just not an A+ building in real life. Its maybe a B+/A- building in real life.

I don't know if I can agree that I like Trump Chicago better than it though. They are close to each other in my opinion. Both wonderful concepts that have some execution problems. However I think Trump Chicago has the opposite effect in real life: Looks great in reality, but photographs horribly. When you photograph Trump Chicago all sorts of things come out that you don't usually see in real life like wavy glass, flat looking spire, etc. I think this is because Trump Chicago has stainless steel which always blows one's mind in real life and over loads your eyes so all you see is "big ass shiny building" and can't notice little flaws like wavy glass or the cardboard looking toothpick antenna up top.

Derek Jeter Wants Out of the Trump World Tower Lineup



Wednesday, September 8, 2010, by Joey

Quote:
Can Yankees fans picture a world in which Derek Jeter suits up for another team? His contract is up at the end of the year, and while the smart money is on the Captain re-signing with the Yanks, the news that he's now listing his sky-high Trump World Tower apartment is going to create some beads of sweat under those New Era fitteds.

The Times brings word that this listing for #88-B in the U.N.-neighboring black monolith is indeed Jeter's place, which he bought in 2001 for $12.6 million. He now wants $20 million for the 4BR/5.5BA condo, which has 5,425 square feet of space and, at least according to the listing photos, not much else inside. Old pictures, or did he already decamp for new digs? Stay or go at the end of this season, this is one plum piece of Yankees memorabilia.
