    You can't tell much from the elevation but I think this will be an exceptional building, especially if it follows a curved form.

    yea... some time has passed, and the building is not only under construction, but has about four stories on it. Ill post a picture soon

    Even if it's curved, it'll resemble nothing less than a late 1950s Florida beach hotel. Beh.

    Latest on One Prospect Park


    Work was supposed to begin this autumn on the reconstruction of Eastern Parkway, but so far, all is quiet.

    The renovation of the Central Library entry is chugging along. Included is a new auditorium beneath the plaza, which will have kiosks and a cafe.

    Very nice building.

    But not in that location.

    Just don't look right there.

    ^You're right, something with 15 CPW or Brompton style would have been a better fit. Retro...Classic.

    Seems like its taking forever to get done. I mean its only made glass, .

    Looks like a modern European building against old architecture.....juxtaposition done fantastically. Stern would have done a good job, but Kondylis would have failed. I'll take the modern.

    Thumbs up

    i dig the building, but the clash in context is a bit too much for me. i can get over that though b/c this has been a huge step toward spreading the love from PPW around the horn and over to Eastern Pkwy. hopefully we'll see a propogation of investment continue generally down along the botantic gardens side of PP.

    makes my head spin when i think about the transformation of the GAP vicinity over the past 20-25 years. let's keep it movin.

    And how loverly for those in the park to look up through all that glass and directly into the private realm of those in the Meier building.

    Why is it that these nouveau riche habitations assume that the world wants to see what is going on inside their homes?
