Re: OFFICIAL - East Village

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

The final finishes won't just be uplit concrete. There will be more going on there than it looks right now https://i.imgur.com/RCsUdP5.jpg It's not excellent, sure, but I think it's acceptable. Of course, in my ideal world it would be covered in some sort of ornamentation, but obviously we don't liv...

Re: OFFICIAL - East Village

In a fantasy world I'd love to see that area become a skyscraper district like hudson yards in NYC. They have a perfectly clean slate to work with and it would all overlook the city hall park beautifully

Re: OFFICIAL - Loews Convention Hotel (formerly Hyatt)

A building doesn't need to be completely ringed with retail to be urban. The new york life building has no street level retail or transparency, but it still contributes to the street through architecture and presence. While the convention hotel isn't anywhere near as beautiful, it adds to the neighb...

Re: Proposed: Hyatt House Hotel- 900 Broadway

Listing for this building's ground floor retail space. It was last updated in January, so still no real news about this place.

Re: The View at the West Bottom II (Weld Wheel Building)

It's back! Apparently ownership has changed and a serious plan is in the works for this place, encompassing all the buildings on the block. I got to tag along in a tour of the place before construction starts and have even more pictures to post https://i.imgur.com/0fyDvgh.jpg https://i.imgur.com/iCY...
