    It's like a leviathan washed up on shore.



    But the materials look pretty good.

    I saw it today. It looks pretty good for what it is.

    It actually feels like it could look okay. Hopefully they expand the sidewalk and add some trees...

    The main issue the opponants of this building have is not so much the size/scale or "looks" of the building; the detrimental effect to the immediate neighborhood will be due to the many large/noisy/smelly sanitation trucks that will be driving through - and lining up on - the small side streets of what is now primarily an upscale residential neighborhood.

    When I lived in the area I would often walk my dog in the moring nearby the small existing DOS building: walking by the line-up of garbage trucks in the early morning was an unpleasant experience to say the least: I have said it many times before on this thread - putting this building at this particular location was a rotten, stinking idea.

    Still, this was a huge missed opportunity, considering the alternatives that were put forth for this building in terms of a green roof and accessible public space tied into it. One of Bloomberg's Big Misses.

    There are a few upscale residential buildings, but how is this an upscale residential neighborhood?.

    If anything, it's a UPS neighborhood.

    All of that crap on Washington St must go. Thse junky warehouses should be in NJ or 'da Bronx.

    Hopefully, the pile of garbage at 550 Washington will be razed soon.

    Not well thought out. Things aren't always what they look like.

    The UPS hub cuts down on traffic. The big trucks come in overnight from long-distance or the airports. The smaller delivery trucks work from the hub to end-point delivery to all of southern Manhattan. If it wasn't there, all of those deliveries would be from the already overloaded facility uptown, or from NJ and the boroughs.

    My problem is that those rank eyesores detract from a beautiful area.

    Doesn't get to the point.

    And when was this area ever beautiful?

    It's beautiful now, but for those warehouses.

    Where?

    Washington St?

    Greenwich St?

    Looks like the warehouses are the neighborhood.

    Greenwich (south of Spring), Renwick, Hudson, etc.


    Also Greenwich and Washington are both beautiful south and north of this warehouse zone.
