    How 'bout that? A residential proposed in this city that actually looks promising (although I'm not too fond of what appears to be a plaza in the middle there).

    Naturally, the permits would be disapproved.

    Anyway, I decided to magnify the thumbnail a little...

    Im not as excited about this project.

    It looks like his Millennium Place in Boston.

    Thanks: even if it is a bit blurry it's an improvement over the standard (postage stamp) thumbnail image.

    What park is that to the left? A new public space?

    It's that new mid block boulevard, park and garage. Didn't realize this development consisted of 3 towers until now. The sites are all well excavated.

    Here you go infoshare. No more eye strain.

    Site 'A' (453 W. 37 St.)


    CLIENT: Rockrose Development
    FACILITY: Residential, Retail, Parking
    SIZE: 1.1 Million SF (Total)
    STATUS: Site A: Under Construction, Site B: Design Development

    Situated between 37th and 38th Streets along Tenth Avenue in the new Hudson Yards District, the West 37th Street sites provide residential, retail, and parking uses to this quickly growing neighborhood.

    Site A, at 453 W. 37th Street, which just began construction, will total 335,385 square feet and feature rental units ranging from 400 to 1400 square feet. Across the street from Mikhail Baryshnikovís new arts center, the project rises 25 floors with approximately 400 units, 80 of which will be low income units. In this strategically zoned residential portion of the West Side City Planning initiative, W. 37th Street recaptures the grandeur of New York's great boulevards with the Tenth Avenue facade rising to a uniform height of 100 feet. The 37th Street facade is 147-feet and 38th Street rises to 122 feet.

    Amenities include a fitness center, laundry, valet, a public rooftop garden, as well as ample storage space - including approximately 150 automobiles and bicycles. Its exterior is sensitively composed of brick, metal panel, and glass, carefully yet modernly echoing its 100-year-old neighborhood fabric.

    Across Tenth Avenue at 505 W. 37th Street, Site B will total 860,000 square feet and feature two towers: the East Tower is 43 stories tall with 463 rental residential units and the West Tower is 34 stories with 373 units. The ground floor has gardens, 22,000 square feet of retail space, and a 14,000 square foot residential lobby and amenity space. The Residentsí Club includes a gym, club rooms with access to the garden, and second floor terraces. It is organized around a grand stair (and dedicated elevator) connecting the three amenity levels. The West Tower roof will a club room and landscaped roof terrace. The project will also include two levels of below grade parking.

    But...but...it's beautiful. In fact, they're all beautiful!

    We don't want anyone here to accuse us of being NIMBYs, right?

    That design ^^^ is somewhat reminiscent of the Archstone Clinton (formerly Mosaic, formerly Clinton Green) - Hell's Kitchen

    Reminds me of a couple of our new ho-hum buildings.











    The east site already has its foundation dug.

    This building's construction really impresses me a lot. Look how much more thicker the floorplates are compared to most other constructions around the city.

    Compare that with the paper-thin plates over at River Place II for example:



    Even the columns look more robust and thicker than most elsewhere.
