Thread: 360 Tenth Avenue - Proposed 62-story, 700ft+ Tower - by Steven Holl

    I was pleasantly surprised that the tower's lines are a lot cleaner than they appeared to be in the Charlie Rose images. I like how the bridge to the Highline has been incorparated into the facade design. I would like to see one of the conceptual watercolors and massing models, in order to better understand the project's development.

    Completely agree, I fear this area will turn into some cold sterile Amercian downtown.

    I was just by that site......i could be wrong but, after no movement for some time I believe
    they replaced the blue plywood construction perimeter wall & mesh covered entrance doors,
    With a new - twice as tall- blue construction perimeter wall. The entrance gates are
    now wood as well, no peek holes anywhere to be found.

    I agree. By the way, I was saying the same thing (< click on link to the thread ) except it was about a different building.

    That building (below) is in even better condition than the one above and there were still businesses in them when the city recently kicked them out, all so they can raze it and build the greenway/boulevard over it as part of the Hudson Yards/west side project.

    What you see in this thread is the latest information anyone here has. That goes for all the threads where you ask, "has it started yet?"

    Wasn't sure where to ask this but this thread seems closest by location. Last week I noticed some construction on 10th between 38th - 36th I think, a huge pit on the west side and a structure going up about 4 floors so far on the east side. Can anyone identify these projects?

    Ok here's a picture its 10th between 38th and 37th. The pit is across the street, very deep and takes up almost the entire block.

    Here's another from his website:



    His Hudson Yards page:

    I have to say the architecture of his buildings are quite dramatic/creative/beautiful. I just wish I could say the same about his siteplan.
