    Well Huys in Russian sounds like "хуй" (huy) which means f*ck, as in "мне дохуя" (mne dohuya) (I don't give a f*ck), which was likely this architect's design philosophy in connection with Huys.

    Google translator has a different interpretation for хуй (but the meaning is clear and fitting):

    хуй-noun

    dick хуй, хер, пенис, сыщик, детектив, половой член

    cock петух, кран, хуй, курок, пенис, самец

    prick укол, хуй, прокол, хер, ничтожество, залупа

    pecker клюв, дятел, хер, кирка, хуй, едок

    How do developers usually handle constructing over active subway entrances? The renderings make is look like that (amazing) triangle entrance will be going right over the current, and only, one there right now.

    Across the street at the Huys they've refurbished the subway entrance that is incorporated into the building there. Seemingly that entrance was closed during construction (and remained closed when I passed by earlier this week). Once that one is re-opened the same thing will take place for this entrance at 400 PAS, no doubt. As long as one stairway entrance is open and accessible, despite the inconvenience of jamming riders through that one egress, there's nothing stopping the MTA & developer from closing off an entryway to accommodate construction.

    Why the dearth of pictures of this project? Exactly one picture has been posted this whole month, and this is easily one of the sexiest, most visually exciting things to go up in a while. WNY you're slacking!

    It hasn't changed that much: it's basically lots of concrete forms with orange netting reaching skyward. There's some new glass, but it won't be until the inward slanting upper walls start getting glass that the major effect will be seen.

    And now the Huys:

    Ah that will do it, thank you. I wasn't even aware of one across the street.

    It looks pretty topped out at this point, the top has the makings of a very striking statement.

    There's nothing random about the pattern on the windows... I'm not sure anyone is doing glazing that really is random, or if anyone could handle that without their mind being blown.

    This building doesn't get much press. Wonder why they haven't kicked off sales yet? Maybe b/c of competition next door?
