Smile NEW YORK | 577 9th Ave | 363 FT | 29 FLOORS

This will be decent filler and a vast improvement over the derlict buildings that currently occupy the site. They've been empty for quite some time.

Looks like a Jenga tower, not an excellent design, but not terrible either.

This just might be the thing that gives that infamously skid mark-striped sore thumb next to it a bit of an interesting contrast...kind of a Yin Yuck dynamic. This proposal is definitely the Yin.
Facade/window treatment of this sort is really starting to grow on me.

That render is pretty sketchy, but so far I really like what I see. Much more interesting than the dark blue box next door.

I take it that this project does not extend all the way to 41st street? It would be a shame if that dumpy bit on the corner remains undeveloped.

I think this is pretty awesome actually. With glass curtain walls seeming to be the way of the world nowadays, it feels like architects and developers are running out of ways to be creative with new skyscrapers. Playing with the actual surface of the facade is becoming a great way to continue building unique structures. It's what made NY by Gehry great and it's what will make 56 Leonard great.

Before anyone claws my face off for that comment, I still think that NY by G and 56 are top tier skyscrapers, whereas this is merely a decent filler building. It's got character though and there's nothing wrong with that. It'll mingle nicely with the zebra building next door.

They need to keep building here anyway so that they drum up enough incentive for the subway station at 10th & 41st.

...OMG I love how the $1 pizzeria tent-lookin' shit on the corner of 41st and 9th has been left standing and featured in the rendering.

One time, I saw a guy with a brand new, top of the line Rolls Royce double-park in front of that tent to buy some weiners. It was funny.

I can see the value engineering in the rendering alone. Considering as well the quality of other recent developments in the area and my hopes are not high. Materials will make or break this building.

The old buildings are being torn down this week. I think the hotel is about to come up.
