Thread: Director's Guild on W 57th is dead

    Default Director's Guild on W 57th is dead

    I asked one of the workers at the Director's Guild Building if it was being demolished, and he informed me that the company decided not to sell the site to a developer but rather to refurbish the existing building. *It's a shame because it's such a rundown building in a really prime location.

    Sad to hear. Thanks for sharing though.

    It's a shame. *Scaffolding was recently constructed on the building's facade and over the sidewalk, so I hoped that demolition was about to begin. *However, two workers at the site and someone from Director's Guild stated that the building is being refurbished. *I hope that they do something with the facade, though I doubt that they will. *

    Oh, well. *I hope the current site is worth saving.

    It wasn't that tall anyway. It's not a big loss.

    It was pretty. At least the shape was.

    That's right.
    But I'm always skeptical when I see only one rendering. And even more when it's only a computer-generated rendering that doesn't show the details.

    There was like five renderings.

    How come I missed 4 of them ?
    Maybe I chose to ignore the 40-story version.
