Thread: One Beacon Court a.k.a. Bloomberg Tower - 151 East 58th @ Lexington - by Cesar Pelli

    The cranes of The Bloomberg tower appear on New York skyline. The view across Central Park Pond. 1 May 2003.




    For comparison, a picture from 18 January 2003. The Bloomberg tower will rise near the blue bullet of International Plaza Building, on the left.

    I think Citigroup will remain the eye-catcher from this angle. Taller and more distinctive.

    But now it has a younget brother to share the skyline with.

    I agree, unless Bloomberg adds another 100 feet.

    What's that ugly building in the middle of the Bloomberg Tower and the CitiCorp building.

    Is it the Galleria you're talking about ? (the building that looks uncompleted)

    Yes. It looks horrible.

    New York skyline, from left to right: the cranes of Bloomberg Tower, Citigroup Center, House III by Roy Lichtenstein, the spire of Chrysler Building, The Four Seasons Hotel. The view from the roof garden of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

    I swear the construction on the top of the Four Seasons has got to be as slow as anything I can ever remember.

    Maybe it's a permanent feature. That would be a big surprise, right ?

    LOL. Permanent black netting as design feature. Maybe the building's a widow.

    Renovation takes forever. *Look how long it took them to do the Paramount marquis in Times Square -- they built the Reuters building and were halfway through the Ernst & Young tower by the time it was finally finished. *And don't forget about that big hotel above the Gap on 42nd that has been behind black netting for as long as I can remember.

    LOL Edward, I particularly like the arc created by Citicorp, House III and the Four Seasons.

    Here are some computer models by Jon Seagull \http://www.jonseagull.com

    Production Notes:
    A 3D model and presentation renderings of their project were in hand, but a client promoting their new luxury office/residential project in midtown Manhattan wanted a striking visual for their promotional material that conveyed the refinement they were seeking, quickly and on a budget.
    By turning their existing model into a crystal sculpture, with the attendant play of light, a whole new way to experience their building presented itself.
    The crystal graphics were incorporated as graphic elements in video, web, and print materials, providing an anchor for the building's identity.
