    I have a little background on this project and the program development for the design. The developers are a bunch of clowns - not of the entertaining variety.

    I just heard a rumor that this will be a condo hotel and a condo. Anything out there to verify this?

    Judging by the way 785 8th Ave is coming out so far compared to its rendering, I would say this one will look nothing like the beautiful rendering we were given. Looks like this rendering has similar "ribs" half way up like over at 785...

    These images were recently posted on Ismael Leyva's website. Perhaps the reason why construction has stopped. The foundation is complete by the way.

    Dubai-ish.
    Not very appropriate for Fifth Avenue.

    Leyva is proving to be a one-trick (and predictably dull) pony.

    Variations on the theme of shiny bluish greenish glass with ribs & angles.

    Horrible. The form is very late 1970's. The treatments are simply disgusting, I'd expect more class from an Atlantic City Casino. Ismael treatments are really deplorable.

    The colors are so out of character with the neighborhood.

    ^^ Well, it matches 325 Fifth a few doors up. Maybe this IS the neighborhood color now, sigh. And how much do you want to bet that the South side not seen in the renderings is another blank cement wall?

    Default A blank concrete wall

    That too, will match with 325, which has got one of its own as well.

    Why do they do it? I don't understand, it does not fit it in, terrible!
