    Yes. Or São Paulo. I think that's how it will stay. I think that the concrete has some some designs in it. Hipefully, something will be built on the J&R site which obscures this junk from
    View.

    Or a coat of white paint just has yet to come.

    GKV has designed a few buildings with patterned, exposed concrete. I think it may look interesting up close, but from any appreciable distance it becomes an unremarkable blotchy greyness.

    I like the pattern of panes on the windows for this. It strikes me as very unique.

    See Inside Temple Court Amidst Its Swanky Hotel Conversion

    April 27, 2015, by Zoe Rosenberg



    The late 19th century Queen Anne-style gem known as Temple Court, used as an office building until its last tenant vacated in 2001, is being reimagined as a 287 room boutique hotel adjoined with a high-end condo tower which will together be called The Beekman Hotel & Residences. In a video by Architect's Newspaper, project architect Randy Gerner of Gerner Kronick + Valcarel discusses how the firm is preserving the dramatic look of the development's historic Temple Court at 5 Beekman Street by recreating some of the moldings that may have lined the atrium, and also rehabbing the neat dragon brackets that brace the 130-year-old building's floors. Although the 51-story tower at 115 Nassau Street that will adjoin with Temple Court is comparatively modern in its design, Gerner says it will help maintain Temple Court's historical legacy by housing its mechanicals. Now if only the tower wasn't so, uh, unpleasant looking.



    The Beekman Hotel will open later this year and will be followed in 2016 by the Residences, which will come to market from $1.2 million.
