    Default A High-Rise Hotel on Old Rivington St.

    We should have preserved the area as a haven for old-law tenements, the mob scene, homeless people and crackhouses, instead of deciding to keep crime down and build nice new buildings.

    I was on jury duty on monday at the Federal Courthouse at 500 Pearl St. I hate the building, but the views from the 24th floor are outstanding. Only tall building up to midtown is Confucius Plaza. The hotel facade is not complete, but it dominates the neighborhood, the effect similar to Citicorp in LIC.

    I wish I had photos, but no cameras allowed.

    Yeah, I would have expected it to be finished by now. Thanks for the photos, I'd been thinking about this building recently... I'd like to see it when it's finished and smoothed out.

    I wonder why this building is so underrated? I love this type of architecture.

    I love the skin and different colored glass panels. Looks good. oh no, it's out of character with the neighborhood.

    Love seeing this towering over that dirty old brick building. That needs to be cleaned.

    Nice display of the past vs. the present.

    I still cant (as a co-op/Condo searcher) believe that there is SO much expensive poo in this city.

    It is kind of two-fold. That things like the foreground could still exist in an area that costs so much. OR that things in the foreground could COST so much to begin with!!!!

    If these lands were not so frigging expensive, I think most of them would have been developed by now. So ironically, their high prices make them the lowest eschelon of quality.

    Too tall? Maybe some of the more crappy buildings need to be razed and the neighborhood needs to catch up!

    Anyway, great facade, really top notch.

    Hmm... I think the building is marginal at best. It would have been much better without the stripe of grey stuff shown in Zippy's second picture. Luckily it looks good from farther away.

    You are joking about that facade right? It's disgusting up close, I like the height though. But that area needs some development.

    The facade will probably be better looking when construction is finished and everything smooths out, some facades tend to look like crap with wires hanging around and windowpanes littered with tape and other materials.
