    Here's one mid-block tower that went up a few years ago: the Sofitel on W. 45th thru to 44th, which awkwardly dwarfs the magnificent NY Yacht Club building on 44th.

    We should consider ourselves lucky if this POS is any indication of what else we'd have to look at:

    If that hunk of crap were razed, it could be replaced with a magnificent boutique office building or apartments. It is a blemish on 5th Avenue.

    Thumbs up

    This must have one of the highest quality curtain walls for a residential building in nyc. I just wish the building was bigger or in a better location.

    More new pictures on the Sota Glazing website.

    How about trading places with these for starters: 1600 Broadway or 10 Barclay?

    The Centria at 18 West 48th Street is almost enclosed
    27-APR-06


    http://www.cityrealty.com/new_develo...news.cr?page=2

    The quite striking glass tower known as The Centria at 18 West 48th Street has nearly completed its façade work.

    The 34-story residential condominium tower is a project of the J. D. Carlisle Development Corporation, which is headed by Jules Demchick. The developer’s other major residential projects include Morton Square on West Street in the West Village and the Cielo on 83rd Street at York Avenue.

    The façade of The Centria has a two tones of gray-blue glass. The western part of its north façade slopes downward gently at a angle of 1.6 degrees to conform with the “sky exposure plane” zoning regulations for the site, according to Geoffrey Turner, the project manager for Perkins Eastman, the architectural firm for the development, and its east façade is cantilevered slightly over the adjacent garage at 10 West 48th Street from which the project acquired unusued “air-rights.”

    The building will have a spa on the first floor, a conference center and a club room and lounge for the residents on the second floor.

    There are 152 apartments and occupancy is anticipated for early next year.

    The building is just to the east of the south end of Rockefeller Plaza where construction is also taking place just to the west of its north end for a new hotel at 25 West 51st Street. Both projects are a block away from the sunken plaza at Rockefeller Center.

    I think the curtain wall on this one came out even nicer than Orion's. It's smooth and reflective, but not at all gaudy-looking or cheesy. Sota Glazing does some good work.

    nice pics again. One thing that kinda bothers me about the building is how it clashes with Rockefeller Center in the skyline. Maybe it's the color, or perhaps the vertical should've been emphasized rather than the horizontal spandrels. Nonetheless great glass.
