    I did some digging around and it appears that the parking lot at 310 - 312 W 40 is not part of any parcel (Chang or otherwise). No DOF activity there for years.

    I can't seem to get any info @ ACRIS, possibly a problem w/ their server? I know I'm having no problems with my internet, even DOB site... Anyone else having an issue?

    ACRIS is a Java thing ...

    What that means I've no clue (but you might want to check your latest Java up-date).

    As much as we hate Kaufman and Poon for designing these, 11 hotels is extraordinary, and better than the parking lots and porn shops previously on the block.

    Let's just stay away from these streets forever, and leave them to the midwestern tourists.

    Default latest ka-ching for chang shots

    still going up- view from 38th

    twin vomit! view from 9th ave
    (look at the windowless wall- so he can squeeze in another POS right next door!)


    view from 39th, (is this brickwork different than the drawings?)
    I guess it doesn't matter how he dresses up this turd- it's still a turd!


    It reminds me of this POS right up the street


    set back! right side

    from the left,
    (bet you he does nothing with the exposed side of adjoining buildings)


    view from 40th


    the other P O S on 40th


    street mess


    This wet cement is as deep as the curb is high and, goes all the way to 9th ave
    - clogging the storm drains


    Can we just give Sam this whole block and then forbid him to build anywhere
    else in the city?
    That way in a few years, it will be easy to tear it all down at the same time
    and- put some real architecture up in it's place!

    Someone should really report them for that.

    The sad thing is, it looks BETTER from the back than it does from the front!

    A painful addition to the Hudson Square neigborhood on Charlton Street...




    Who did this hotel on Van Dam Street? The side of it is vaguely reminiscent of the Times Square Hilton. The big aqua square in the middle does scream "Kaufman!!!!!!!"

    FYI: I just heard through the grapevine that there was already an accident (last friday) at Sam's 99 Washington st. garage that has begun demo- an elevator was not secured and came crashing down to the ground. Noone was hurt, thankfully. Yet. There apparently was a jolt felt through many surrounding buildings....
