    Default 88 Leonard Street at Broadway - Rental - by Costas Kondylis

    Big site is cleared and prepped. Tishman is the CM. They wouldn't be involved if it wasn't big. Anyone know?

    I think your right. The article i read counted the below-grade stories.
    Short article from The Tribec Trib
    http://www.tribecatrib.com/newsoct03/inbrief.html

    The permit says 20 stories 220 feet by the way.

    Located at the northern edge of Manhattan’s “Silicon Alley,” this 15-story structure is designed to accommodate both web hosting and office use. The superstructure will have 150 lb load capacity for computer floor installation. UPS, generator, and cooling capacity are designed to withstand a 72-hour blackout period.

    Other features include retail frontage on the ground level, expandable fuel and water storage in the basement, and a plan configuration for conversion to office use as tenant needs change. The construction method and mechanical systems are planned to meet an 18-month construction period.

    Hole is in the ground with foundations being poured. Should be out of the ground by summer.

    Re: 88 Leonard (aka 341 Broadway); Arch: Costas Kondylis

    The brick is going up on the facade: They are using a very DARK GRAY BRICK, which is gloomy and WRONG for this site.

    Another BAD DESIGN choice by HACK-itect Kondylis

    A recent description (scroll down to bottom of page http://newyork.construction.com/2005...05_p041-01.asp ):

    Leviev Boymelgreen Development's new 21-story, 387,000-sq.-ft. building at 88 Leonard St. stands out from its prewar neighbors. Costas Kondylis designed the contemporary structure with an exterior of silver aluminum and glass that highlights a backdrop of black brick. Glass, natural materials, and an indoor garden with a 20-ft. round pool will grace the two-story lobby.

    "A glass bridge overlooks the lobby, and we have a two-story glass fireplace," said Rich Ortiz, senior project manager at Tishman Construction, the construction manager on the project.

    The 352-unit, $120 million building has a reinforced concrete superstructure. Extension of a two-story, below-grade parking lot under one of the adjacent structures provided an additional challenge, Ortiz said. The team took special care to protect its older neighbors at 93 Worth Street and 80-82 Leonard Street.

    Oh, so they get extra credit for not ruining existing neighboring buildings !!

    Oh my God! It is truly an awful hulk.

    Dark grey brick to enliven a narrow street. Some of it looks pasted on.

    Exposed floor plates.

    Several glass bump-outs.




    Typical building on Leonard St

    Ain't it though?

    Just a jumble of confused massing.

    The worst is seen in the last two pictures: the way it crowds right up to the cast iron building to the west, shoving its sheer glass shoulder up against the old beauty.

    Almost like it's snarling "Get out of my way, you aging crone!".
