    Nice photos as usual. It looks taller than it actually is. I also like this buildng cause it isn't brown like most of the other residential buildings on West 42nd and vicinity. (excluding River Place)

    You mean red brick? Yes, I agree completely!

    The way things were going I feared the beautiful midtown skyline was going to be ruined by a wall of bland red brick shoe box apartment highrises completely obstructing the view of the Time Square are viewed from the West. It looked as though, in a few years the area could look like a new version of the lower east side.

    The pics are great, but too bad this building isn't. It's bland, like most of the apartment towers popping up on the West Side. I am looking forward to RiverPlace II to commence. Any news on groundbreaking?

    Yea, I agree the pics are great. *Bland or not it makes me envious, wish we had more buildings of that height here.

    The neighborhood still lacks density. I wish there was more a mix of activities.
    A couple of tall office buildings for instance.
    Why not a nice park instead of all those parking lots ?
    So far, it looks suburban.

    Suburban? That last pic is so representative of many major downtown areas.

    Well, that's a problem with America and its sprawl. "Underutilized" is a more appropriate word however.

    The name of the project kinda spooks me, and for obvious reasons if you've read 1984.

    Bah...maybe I just think too much. :angry:
