    Default Mayflower and Its Vacant Lot to Be Sold

    I was walking on Broadway today and as I went past this site there were 2 cranes being put into the ground. It seems to finally be progressing.

    All the literature states that this building will be clad in limestone, but the renderings show what appears to be quite a bit of reflective material, especially on the tower portion.

    What a perfect tower for this location. When was the last time a skyscraper in NYC was clad in limestone? A welcome change for sure.

    I love the "castle in the sky" upper floors. Note the loggia and buttreses. I wish he had gone even further with it. It´s very 1920/30´s. Look down along the side-street level... looks like more interesting things going on. Stern is a classy man with taste. I can´t wait to see the design details close-up on this building.

    And for those of you who will bring up the tired "well what does this have to do with the 21st century" comments: remember that a good part of NYC´s great architecture borrowed themes from the past.

    That building seems to be 1845 Broadway:

    http://www.dancesport.com/

    It has dance studios on floors 2 - 4:

    The building has an Indian restaurant on the ground floor:

    This area used to have quite a few dance / rehearsal studios, but many of those have now moved south to 8th Avenue in the garment district.

    That building is clearly visible in the old Circle photos that Ablarc posted on this thread:

    Scroll down to the large photo post #75. Look under the Dodge Brothers sign.

    A MAYFLOWER PLAN FLOATED

    By STEVE CUOZZO

    "March 22, 2005 -- THE former Mayflower Hotel
    Sources said apartments will likely average roughly 2,100 square feet. Two towers of different heights will rise above a much lower base — one tower near to Broadway, the other closer to Central Park West. The project is being designed by Cesar Pelli and Associates.

    Sources said architects Schuman Lichtenstein Claman & Efron have been tapped to design the interior, a claim that could not be confirmed.

    and in the ny times trdeal and other real estate etc
    it says that "
    13. Fifteen Central Park West, West 61st-62nd streets, between Broadway and CPW
    Plans were announced last month for the nearly 60,000-square-foot vacant lot left by the demolition of the Mayflower Hotel. Zeckendorf Development will construct a luxury condominium consisting of two wings – The House, at 20 stories and The Tower, at 43 stories. Designed in a neo-classical style by Robert A.M. Stern and clad in Indiana limestone, the project will offer 202 apartments, including terraced duplexes and full-floor penthouses, plus 29 private suites that may be purchased by residents for their guests or staff. Ninety percent of the units will have direct Central Park views. The building is scheduled for occupancy in spring 2007"

    Look at the details Stern has put into the building. That is something you will not get in Kondylis, probably not even pelli. There's enough of Kondylis's crap around the city. Show me one exceptional building he's done besides Trump World Tower.

    This is no ordinary condo tower. Thought and time has actually been put into it. It's facade willbe real limestone, not a fake brick facade, not a facade with the floor slabs showing. This will be the 21st century jewel of Central park West and I'm excited to see it go up.
