    Is it me, or does this have the same kind of setback that your blog rails against when it is done in Chelsea? Personally, such a set-back is even more odious in this case than it is in those demolishable budget hotels all over Chelsea.

    @Roman. It’s not the setback that’s the issue. It’s the break in the curtain wall along 59th that will impact the continuity of the block at ground level. Not a bad looking structure overall though.

    “Every residence will also have an outdoor terrace.” I hope these owners enjoy the wind and have no fear of heights.

    What a cop-out and down grade:
    Not “Park Lane” but ” 1 Park Lane”. What else will they SKIMP on?

    Will there be a poor door or will all the welfare recipients walk through the same door?

  6. The setback is due to NYC’s insane zoning. While it is not good, there is no alternative in this case; the developer must preserve a % of the existing structure in order to build even the same square footage. Though it is certainly undesirable!

    If we build a bunch of these around the park we can change the name of central park to central box.
