Thread: Amazing low- and mid-rises under construction

  1. #16

    Default Hmm

    Interestingly enough, in the render it does not show any windows on the base of the one side(paralleling the high line), while there already is now a row of windows. Replacement?

    Kinda gives a bit of grittiness and authenticity to a place that has been whitewashed and that has become increasingly, although stylish, is also generic.
    i don't know anymore.. perhaps i'm just jaded but the graffiti seems generic to me now.

    I don't think the graffiti was included in the original render.

    ^ correct. if you look just above the photos at my post #10 you can see the rendering has it all gray and sleek. no grit allowed in manhattan anymore!

    anyone know what is happening next door? that is, to the pit on the corner just west of the cudahy? talk about a (now) prime parcel of property!

    amazing that this one isnt amazing, considering its so massive and filling up a whole block in the most expensive city zip code in the usa
    (its in tribeca on the westside of washington bet watts & desbrosses).

    Thanks for the update. That last ugly one has some OK massing in the form of those 1920s-style corner wings, but other than that it strikes me as being what the Urban Glass House would look like if Kaufmann or O'Hara had designed it.

    That Parker Pile ^ is all the worse given the context of great old Tribeca buildings to the south and east.

    It looks worse in real life -- the reflection seen on the glass minimizes its ponderous hulkage of pre-cast stonishness. Lots of trees will be required. With the up-coming and on-going down-sizing on Wall Street this will become the go-to river view dorm for NYU.

    Pedestrians: Watch out for those damned purple trolleys!

    This building is AWESOME!!!



    What's the address? Where exactly is it? (I assume it's on a side street off of 9th or 10th in the MP Dist.)

    That side looks like Charles Lane, formerly an inconspicuous alley.

    Yes, 166 Perry also fronts onto Charles Lane, just across from two other new low-rise residential buildings: 12 Charles Lane (which backs up to 161 Charles Street) and 163 Charles Street (which goes through the block to Charles Lane and sits just to the east of the Meiers tower at 165 Charles Street).

    Here are some shots of that group ...
