Thread: One 57 - 157 West 57th Street - 1003 feet - by Christian de Portzamparc

    At the end of the day this will be a gorgeous building. The glass and shape is already turning out far better than the renderings suggested. And 1.3 billion dollars for a building, especially a residential is not thrifty.

    Like I said before, that's more of a testimony to Portzamparc talents than Barnett's altruism or whatever you want to call it.

    (Sorry for the hazy images. Today wasn't the clearest of days and add that with a dirty window and you get these beauties! )

    It's filling in that skyline gap pretty nicely.

    This building is going to fill it in, then kick the crap out of it. It's one thing to talk about how tall this is on paper, but the fact that it is effectively an essex house on top of either of the buildings it is rising next to remains mind boggling to me. It's right up there with watching the WTC from the train in Jersey. It's just killing it and there's still so much to go.

    Don't get too close. The glass being used is unbelievably ugly.

    I've seen it up close and like it.

    Any word about how much/what kind of retail it will have in the base?

    How do they correct those colors from the inside, or would you be looking through different color panes in the same room?

    That facade is Similar to the look of the 'blue condo' building in the east village - that type of faceted, multicolored curtain wall is very attractive. Nice!
