A First, Rather Vague Rendering Appears of Extell’s 71-Story Towers

The neighbors of Extell’s massive project at the former Pathmark site on Cherry Street are definitely keeping a close eye on construction activity. Tonight the tenant association of Two Bridges Tower, located next door to the work site, tweeted this image.  In response to complaints that Extell failed to provide a rendering of the building, as required by city law, a drawing appeared on the construction fence today, showing what appears to be twin towers. There’s also now a header that reads: “Work in progress: residential 71 – story.”  A complaint in the Department of Buildings database noted a “failure to provide project information panel for new building.”  At a recent community meeting, Extell executives indicated they would not be prepared to show the public full renderings for at least a few weeks. The borough president’s office alerted the DOB about the lack of complete signage.

    I like how the rendering has exaggerated the height of the Manhattan Bridge as to make the building look more contextual. Nice try.

    For reference.

    Jesus, on top of all their ham-fisted community relations, that’s one ugly pile of crap. Why can’t we build interesting buildings anymore?
