    Default Lower Manhattan 8/03

    Am I missing something? What does Davis (The creator of 1 NY Place) have to do with this center opening on Thursday? Will he be there?

    Heartening, of course, although the designs likely stink.

    The designs more than likely stink.

    The architect of 10 Liberty Street is Stephen B. Jacobs, a New York-based firm whose portfolio, which includes the well-received Gansvoort Hotel in the Meatpacking District and 53 Boerum Place in Downtown Brooklyn, is mostly comprised of postmodern-style apartment buildings. He also assisted in the renovation of an office building at 299 Madison Avenue into the Library Hotel.

    Hotel Giraffe, 363 Park Avenue South. Completed 1999, 12 floors




    121 Reade Street, TriBeCa. Completed 1997, 11 floors






    Kingsley Condominiums, 400 East 70th Street. Completed 1984, 42 floors






    We can expect something relatively nice, but I wouldn't get my hopes up for a masterpiece.

    Thanks Stern! I've been busy and haven't had a lot of time to use the computer lately.

    There's a rendering of 10 Liberty on Glenwood's web site. It's just what you'd expect :roll:

    10 Liberty looks, at least, 500 ft...if you kinda count up the floors...and assume they're 8-10 ft. high...

    It's an average-height apartment building. It's supposed to look boring.

    It's pretty damn close to the building next to it, though.
