Interview: Bjarke Ingels on New Design for 200 Greenwich Street, aka Two World Trade Center

YIMBY sat down with Bjarke Ingels to talk about his firm’s design for 200 Greenwich Street, aka Two World Trade Center. Despite public outcry following the change from the Norman Foster version of the tower, BIG’s innovative and forward-thinking building will truly respond to the human needs of its tenants, while also punctuating the Downtown skyline with a 1,340-foot take on a classic ziggurat. We’ve also obtained a few additional renderings of the soon-to-be icon’s impact on the cityscape.

New Views, Interiors, Possible Herzog and de Meuron Design for 1 Park Lane, aka 36 Central Park South

Last week, YIMBY revealed the exteriors for 1 Park Lane, which has an actual address of 36 Central Park South, the site of the current Helmsley Park Lane. While we speculated that Vinoly designed the building, we learned that Handel Architects was in fact behind the renderings; we have also obtained a new set of images which include that version of the project’s interiors and views, which will be very impressive.

Handel Architects Behind Design of 1,210-Foot Tall 1 Park Lane, aka 36 Central Park South

Yesterday, YIMBY revealed the exteriors for 1 Park Lane, which has an actual address of 36 Central Park South, the site of the current Helmsley Park Lane. While we speculated that Vinoly was behind the renderings, we have now learned that Handel Architects is in fact behind the design, which is unsurprising considering the supertall does resemble a vertically extruded take on the Trump Soho (another Handel project). The 1,210-foot tall building will have 88 condominiums, and completion is expected by 2020.

New Renderings Show New York’s Future Skyline

Visualhouse sent along a rendering of the Manhattan skyline circa 2030, and the vista will be far more impressive than today’s, with supertalls set to line both 57th Street and the Far West Side. The image leaves out the new World Trade Center as well as several major projects in Midtown and on the Far West Side (and Nordstrom is also missing its cantilever), but the picture gives a good idea of the changes New Yorkers can expect over the next few years, even though the approximation is likely closer to 2020 than 2030, given that all depicted additions (besides 15 Penn) should be complete by 2018/2019.
