    ^ Nah, variety is the spice of life. It doesn't bother me.

    BTW, how come no permits filed yet? A rendering or two would be nice, too.

    The idiot developer also razed a gorgeous building that was on this site as well.

    So not only did we lose a beauty but now have to live with a dirt hole for the next 5 (or more) years.

    I like the way he hides the bulkier office portion of the tower in the back as seen in the "south elevation" (or the 3rd one from the top).

    We often criticize him (and deservedly so) but in this...

    Skylimit, are you sure something's going to happen there. I checked the DOB and the only permits out are for fašade repair.

    That would be a new one. There's no thread for it here yet.

    Which lots is that site made up of? Does it take up the entire block front from 30th to 31st?

    Derek had actually predicted this...
  6. Are you talking about the big hole in the ground...

    Are you talking about the big hole in the ground across 30th St. on the west side of Sixth?

    That would be the Fitzgerald hotel @ 835 Sixth Ave. whose thread is here.
  7. Three below grade floors dedicated to retail use?...

    Three below grade floors dedicated to retail use?

    Since that won't count towards FAR, I guess that's the way to build in New York from now on: build downwards.

    That is, until the NIMBYs find...

    I wasn't referring to the shape of the tower when I said timid. The shape is actually a breath of fresh air from the monolithic forms we normally get.

    Rather, I was referring more to how the...

    Too small and short. Doesn't make you feel like it's got a strong presence. Looks almost timid.
  10. A hastily and unprofessionally photoshopped...

    A hastily and unprofessionally photoshopped rendering no doubt, leaving in that striped building in the back there like that.

    These bases are pretty much all the same now, unremarkable square or...

    You know what's crazy about that?

    They could have switched places with that former garage site (likely zoned for residential) because it does have a very large footprint and have that proposal...

    I don't think they're razing the whole block.

    855 is that striped glass building at the corner and maybe the one next to it is also part of the plot but that's about it.

    I'm surprised you're...
