    Portzamparc started a bit late; I lasted ~ 2 hours. Pretty dark in there for photos

    Extell was the sponsor of tonight's presentation, with rows of reserved seats for Extell-ers (many who didn't show). No discussion tonight of 155 W 57, and only one very fleeting image of the project at Riverside South. Seems both might be discussed at some other Portzamparc presentation tomorrow at 8AM (see below).

    Lots of talk about 400 Park Avenue South -- Construction is slated to begin there in 2010!

    One big loss for NYC is that Portzamparc's 150 Amsterdam / home for NYC Opera wasn't built. The slides on that were fantastic and he used the opportunity to discuss his "Open Brick" concept.

    Thanks, Lofter.

    400 PAS is one of my favorite projects. I really hope that it starts in 2010. That parking lot is an eyesore, and the tower is magnificent.

    Yea, nothing about the 57th Street towers. He has a very heavy french accent, I barely understood anything.

    The biggest laugh of the evening: When Portzamparc was talking about the NYC Zoning Regulations and said they were more complex than the Talmud.

    Did he say if the developer has financing for 400 PAS? I really want that project to start.

    He spoke, regarding 400 PAS, more in terms of the "plan is set to start in 2010" or something to that effect. But he continually sang the praises of the developer (A&R Kalimian?). The Portzamparc website also shows construction for 400 PAS at 2010.

    Did anyone go to this morning's 8AM Portzamparc presentation.

    Still no word about today's meeting? No reveals of 57th St?

    Too early for me...
    That one seemed like it was solely going to focus on Riverside Center.

    Signe Nielsen was my landscape architecture professor at Pratt. Her firm also designed a parts of Hudson River Park.

    So much for the design being revealed in "a few days," and that was a couple of weeks ago.

    (Has anyone checked Portzamparc's website?)

    Everyday. Now that is commitment! I think you have an architecture fetish LL. Portzamparc being the metaphorical Megan Fox and Kaufmann the metaphorical Courtney Love.
