700' by Cook Fox should be quite nice
Bonus shot of old gems behind this site.
Bonus shot of the fountain in City Hall Park with the glorious Municipal Buildng in the background.
Yep, a missed opportunity for such a great spot
This idiotic Buildng despeatelt needs setbacks. CookFox clearly has some hacks on their staff, as their projects are either great or lame. They're not consistent like KPF or SHoP.
Updated info from the developer's presentation at a recent CB1 meeting:
Thanks for the info.
Thanks Rich! Any renderings at the meeting?
No. They said they plan to be back before CB1 with renderings in "late 2016 or early 2017". So it might be a while.
I wonder if the changes will be dramatic or merely minor. I assume the latter. This design is underwhelming for such a prominent site.
The old buildings are almost gone.
Nice picture, rbrome!
Beautiful old City Hall!
The Park Place tower should be visible from this perspective in a few years!
The impact this and the other building on Park Row have on the neighborhood will be tremendous. Will mark the true transition point between neglected old commercial space & thriving residential neighborhood, I think.
