80 stories of glass now at One Manhattan Square



An EVG reader notes that the glass has apparently reached the top of One Manhattan Square, Extell's 80-story, 847-foot-tall tower down at 252 South St. (basically the former Pathmark) ... looks that way from down here...



... but not here...

The building will have 815 residential units starting above $1 million as well as 100,000 square feet of outdoor and indoor amenities, including an indoor basketball court, a bowling alley, a tea pavilion and a private theater. (Movies, not plays!)

What an ugly building that sticks out as being so out of character of that whole neighborhood...a real eyesore...I am sure the people who can afford to purchase those million dollar apartments will enjoy their views of the Manhattan Bridge and the East River while the majority of people who live around that building can barely afford to live in this overpriced City.

You really have to give Mayor Bill credit and we do. And he's been elected... twice! Imagine. He's just your average pol who whines on about income inequality yet he' allows, nay, encourages monstrosities like this building... all for the 1%ers... the very group he rails against. God bless America. God bless ONE PARTY RULE... And least we forget, God bless irony!

These "mega structures" are an offense to the eye, an offense to the sky. And they are an offense to the neighborhood. Hudson Yards is a cluster of mega structures with similar ugly design. And similar ugly self important names like "One Manhattan West" which is actually 405 Ninth Avenue.

This building is Beijing West. It is in the middle of nowhere, and not enticing for the "1% ers," at least not 1% of the local population. Not sure what "party" forms the "one party rule."
