Central Park Place condominium is soaring above the ruins of the Coliseum in August of 2000. Today Time Warner Center (http://www.wirednewyork.com/aol/) is being constructed on the site of the Coliseum.


The rooftop of the Carnegie Mews (http://wirednewyork.com/real_estate/carnegie-mews/) apartment building has an excellent view of the Central Park Place.

The view on Central Park Place condominium along 8th Avenue from 50th Street.

Random House/Park Imperial (http://www.wirednewyork.com/skyscrapers/random_house/) tower is going up on sunny May day of 2001.

I figured there would be at least one other available plot of land other than the Center

I be to differ -- it's one of my least favorite "major" buildings in Manhattan.

Vista killer / Bad color / Awkward massing

Pointless balconies ...

Has anyone EVER seen a person on one of those balconies?

Also: The metal paneling on the facade is so thin that at street level it is all banged and bent.

Hardly the materials needed for the base at a very active part of the city.

Looks like a robot designed it for other robots.

Dunno its weird, and awkward yet I still like it.

The street leave conditions are shameful though, just looks bad. Don't know why they didn't use something more solid.

200 chambers used a similar + somewhat flimsy metal paneling at street level.

Surprisingly even Johnson's Urban Glass House seems to have used metal for the facade which is deficient in heft.

Go knock on the much heavier metal sheathing at 40 Mercer if you want a sense of what is needed for a metal facade at street level in NYC.
