    you're welcome. What a difference a 100 years makes. I work across the street on the 13th floor and the 24th floor of that building doesn't look too much higher.

    From the webcam, something, perhaps glass (and ugh AC vents), appears to have gone up on the second and third floors on the 38th St. side.

    a/c vents and a very drab facade. Rockrose is actually one of the lower tier of nyc developers, I never realized it before but take into account their prior work and you'd agree (inc. 2 gold)

    A tidbit of news:

    ...Rockrose has contracted Landmarc Restaurants to open an eatery at 455 West 37th Street, an 80/20 building with 425 units, and they are close to a deal with Food Emporium...

    Default glass on

    It changes appearance depending on what the light outside is like.
    It seems to have a metallic/pearly sheen to it's two tones
    of greenish/greenish-blue glass.

    The lower smaller panes would be much better if they were opaque.

    Where do you put anything when you live in these floor-to-ceiling all glass units?

    The view from outside is nasty. If you don't believe it then get down on your hands and knees and take a look around your house.

    That's what foks see from outside these buildings looking in .

    The AC vents just shatters all chances of the windows looking good.

    New rentals in this city all seem to have that cheap Avalon-look now.

    Default 455 West 37th Street - Far West Side

    This is the Rockrose Development of the east side of Tenth Avenue between Wesy 37th Street & West 38th Street. It in the middle of five or six sites currently being developed.

    NB permits were just issued for the second phase of the project across Tenth. Expect work there to start up very soon.

    Excellent, I was wondering what the holdup there was since the
    shorter tower went up so fast....

    Default what's up with these windows?

    I don't know if this is what you meant by "Avalon cheap," Antinimby, but what on earth is up with the windows on nearly every condo building (i.e., nearly every building, period) going up these days? So many of them have this 1970s-cheap International Style style of a longer rectangle perched atop a squatter rectangle. All in all it looks terrible; and what's more, as we know from nearly anything built in the 60s and 70s that looks like this (take my suburban high school's pool, e.g.), it ages very, very poorly. I didn't see a need to return to those kinds of windows; apparently cheapskate developers did.
