    Thanks Derek, I was just thinking why hasn't Kondylis designed another really good building since the TWT, the answer is simple, budget constraints. This one however seems to have both a good budget and design.

    Consolation prize


    By Lore Croghan

    High-rise apartment buildings are sprouting like sunflowers on the far western end of 42nd Street.

    The newest to put down roots - or foundations - is Gary Barnett's 58-story project at 350 W. 42nd St. It will have 529 apartments.

    Barnett owned another property across from the Port Authority Bus Terminal - but it was condemned for the New York Times headquarters that Bruce Ratner is building. Barnett's current project site, near the corner of Ninth Avenue, may not be quite as sexy a location but it's a nice consolation prize.

    In Hell's Kitchen, a Changing Skyline

    By DENNIS HEVESI
    Published: May 12, 2002, Sunday

    http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpag...56C0A9649C8B63

    "It won't be open to the public, but on the south side of 43rd Street near 11th Avenue, a 23-story building with 106 apartments began welcoming residents on May 1 -- all of them employees of the Chinese government.

    Called the Residence Tower of the Chinese Consulate General, the $28 million building bears an arched, ribbed roof with a curved facade of frameless glass held in place by cables threaded through pinholes. The 20th and 21st floors, reserved for the ambassador, have stainless steel and granite exteriors. Construction started a year and a half ago, with finishing touches expected by July.

    An eight-story factory building had been on the site. ''They bought it for $8 million,'' said Joseph Maggio, vice president of Princeton General Construction, the builders. ''Twenty years ago, it could have sold for a couple hundred thousand.''
