That about sums it upOriginally Posted by londonlawyer
Seriously, Lofter, do you (or does anyone) know if the developer plans to cover the floor plates? I really can't think of a single glass and aluminum building in which they're exposed. The people who bought these apartments will really be taking a big one up the a.ss if these plates are not covered. It will really look like a huge plie of crap.Originally Posted by lofter1
There is still some detail work to be installed around the windows on the base of the building, but it looks as if the facade on the upper floors are pretty much installed. So unless they are going to go back and do this later then I think this Piece of S*** is what we get.
The last two pages of posts are about the funniest exchange of criticisms on a building I've read on WNY in years.
I walked by the fancy new building on the north side of 57th between 2nd and 3rd and just noticed that it also has exposed floor plates and a glass facade. It's quite odd.
I know! Isn't is bizarre? It's more than exposed floorplates -- the entire Eastern side of the building is bare concrete. It looks awful with the nice blue/green glass on the other side.Originally Posted by londonlawyer
I hope they plan on fixing it and covering it over with glass before the building is done.
If not, this building has just become a huge disappointment for me. It looks like crap from the East and the contrast between the concrete and the glass is truly revolting.
What building are you talking about?
Sounds similar to 325 5th (I know this isn't it)....glass, but exposed floor plates, and a seemingly blank concrete wall on the north side. It really is atrocious. (Like 1600 broadway)

i think its a good building exept for the big ass sign
It looks like a miniature neo-cubist Crowne Plaza Hotel with less concrete.
In this photo, at that angle, in that sort of half-light with the details melted away, it looks magnificent. Like a japanese cartoon monster unfolding into something mean.
But I think in the light... when you realize those are balconies squeezed in there, butting up against that sign, itīs going to look really wierd.
In itīs place I keep imagining the Studebaker as a beautiful hotel... with itīs brick & limestone and great copper cornice restored....
