    This building is just cold and unfriendly. Fits right in the area.

    Apparently the forum became uninterested in the project. But the building is now done and opened 2 weeks ago.

    John Jay College's New Building Melds Architecture and Academics on the Far Westside
    NEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Dynamic Design Creates an Integrated Campus in One New York City Block

    To meet John Jay College of Criminal Justice's evolving academic and spatial needs, the College today opened a state-of-the-art building on 59th Street between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues. The new 625,000 square foot facility, designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, is a concrete manifestation of John Jay's efforts to solidify its place as the preeminent leader in "educating for justice." This new building will not only bring a sense of community to a commuter college but also provide a facelift to the emerging Far Westside.

    So they opted not to put up the mega JOHN JAY COLLEGE sign across the front?

    Can I say one word? Thumbnails! I find these full page, massive photos obnoxious.

    I lived in 59th & Columbus until April 2011 and parked in a garage across the street from this uhhh building...it looks like a whole lot of nothing to me.

    Are those lights along the top?

    I agree. There's a rule here about posting five images per post, so the pages don't get overly long and the pages will load faster.

    I think there is plenty of "interest" in the project: it is just that there are so many new construction projects in NYC these days it is easy to loose track of them all - but, thank for the reminder. This one is typical of SOM: handsome, yet understated. It seems to me their design approach is to stay with the 'program' ; methods/ materials/budget/ect - then let the 'beauty' become a natural outcome of meeting those user requirements.

    This is attractive; and the beauty is more than skin deep. SOM certainly is not DUM - they are one of the best firms there is, and this new building IMHO lives up to that reputation.

    Full disclosure: I do NOT currently have any bids in with SOM. Not at the moment anyway. HeeHee
