    Don't know what that round thing is they're making the formwork for. Never seen anything like that in this city before.

    I hope so - I love this design. It's a nicer version of the Rockrose condo that just went up on the LIC waterfront.

    Im so excited this is going forward, especially in this economic environment. Here are some more renderings we havent seen yet:

    ten arquitectos: clinton park, new york


    'clinton park' by ten arquitectos
    image courtesy ten arquitectos

    located at the western edge of midtown manhattan, is the clinton park mixed-use
    development designed by ten arquitectos. it will occupy more than half of a city
    block with 1.3 million square feet of commercial and residential programs.

    the project fills a void in the urban fabric by integrating multiple commercial uses
    at the base and providing needed housing in the 27 floors above. the base building
    will include a 50,000 square-foot auto showroom fronting 11th avenue with 250,000
    square feet of service floors below grade, a 30,000 square-foot horse stable for
    the nypd mounted police, a 7,500 square-foot neighborhood market, a 30,000
    square-foot health club, and 200 parking spaces.

    the residential form sitting atop this plinth creates more than 900 apartment units,
    including 20 percent inclusionary housing.

    the overall massing of the project slopes up and away from clinton park, starting
    at 96 feet along 11th avenue and climbing up to 348 feet at the middle of the block;
    this height transition negotiates two very dissimilar urban scales: the flat, horizontal
    one of the park located to the west of 11th avenue and the vertical, windowless
    structure of the telephone switching tower to the east of the site.

    securing light and air for a great majority of apartment units, the double loaded
    corridor shifts diagonally across the site in a unique orientation to the manhattan grid,
    reducing the building’s mass adjacent to the neighboring buildings.

    each floor steps up from the one below, allowing for unobstructed views to the park
    and hudson river and providing private roof terraces with green roofs on every floor.

    the building’s mirrored structure introduces the creation of two garden terraces,
    a green feature among the city’s urban grid. the gardens and the green roofs
    on each floor introduce a refreshing sense of proximity to nature into the otherwise
    massive structure.

    a varied treatment of street walls and interior facades creates a solid exterior
    with smaller openings along the street edges of the building, while lighter facades
    skin the building where the form pulls away from the street. this language of interior
    and exterior makes reference to the historic court spaces of new york city housing.

    on the ground floor, the design reconciles the complex program of the building by
    placing the dealership and horse stable on the two opposite spaces below the terraces.

    the design of the project capitalizes on the site’s through-block condition
    and its spectacular views to clinton park and the hudson river.

    I think it is going to look monstrous at street level.

    I bet that will smell lovey in August
    And the folks over at the Avery thought they had a popper scooper problem?!

    A condensed version of this design would work well at Dock Street in Dumbo. I'm envisioning the stair case portion oriented to face the Brooklyn Bridge span.

    I don't know about this one. I think if you saw it from the right angle, it would look like a beachfront hotel.

    The theory behind it is interesting though.

    I feel like it'll make a great addition and help give the skyline some more undulation in that area.

    Too bad it won't be public space I can hang out on!

    Wow. Great photos. But where's the superstucture? Perhaps it's for publicity's sake!

    They did this down at Battery Park City with some of the recent buildings that have gone up (or are trying to go up) down there, seemingly to see how the components will look on-site.

    Perhaps here they're laying them out on public view as part of the public review process (this one still needs to get some OKs for variances).
