    I agree. Isn't the dumpy building on that site vacant?

    One of the stores is vacant, but not the entire building.

    Maybe the leases are not being renewed.

    The empty space at the NE corner of the cinder block POS has a "For Rent" sign on it

    Something of interest from 1890:

    Thanks for link to the article about the history of Jersey Street/Five Points area. Things a have really changed drastically in the "tenement apartments" in NOLITA (formerly the Five-Points area)

    The original building is down to two outer walls.

    Are those walls really so remarkable that they have to go through that much trouble just to keep them?

    And from what I understood, weren't most of the building's other walls supposed to have been left in tact?

    Yes the original plan was to keep both original structures generally in tact.

    Can you imagine what the people who have bought units are thinking right about now? This thing won't be done for a long long time...

    ^^ according to some of the posters on curbed.com, the majority of the original warehouses were structurally unsound (something about improper underpinnings from 1920s subway construction)

    The plan now is to completely rebuild the two warehouses while constructing the addition

    Default nicely proportioned, nice reuse

    I love the fact he reused the other buildings. Very well done. Nicely scaled.

    Foster should take note on how to appropriately add to existing buildings and make the composition work as a whole.


    There is an insane animation of this project at the website, click 'film'. It wont really be that transparent as some of the renderings suggest, but it's still very good.

    Or, at least tried to reuse the other buildings. I was puzzled when I saw their near-complete-demolition: until I read the news coverage on curbed.


    P.S. That vidio is amazing (I would have missed it) I did not see it on my first viewing of the site: it is easy to miss. Thanks

    My impression is that the units in the glass "addition" are pretty sweet whereas the ones that were going to be in the "existing" structures were mediocre. One cool thing is that they have some sort of automatic parking. I don't think it is the same as the parking system discussed here but still pretty cool.

    The location just seems like a tough one to get past...
