Photo update from Curbed, showing this one continuing to rise. I think the glass will either make or break this building.

Photo update on the Willow Hotel. Despite its poorly placed setback, it really is shaping out to be a pretty good looking tower. Apparently black vertical struts will be added to the facade to accentuate its verticality. Could be interesting. Too bad the other hotel developers in the city couldn't learn a thing or two from this project. Anyway, to the photos:

Looks fantastic! The glass looks really Asian for some reason.

Nice update, sbarn. The glass actually looks fantastic--definitely not the norm for NYC. I'll have to get photos today or tomorrow as well!

Really, really good. Despite being a low building, it has a very good architecture. I loved the details of black braces between the floors. It was very good. Nice glass also.

The entire base now has the windows, and it looks great!

Wow, this one is turning out rather nice. The vertical facade elements will add to its articulation as well. Roman and Williams does nice stuff.

Looks like they are up to about the 21st floor or 22nd floor (can't quite tell)...

Absolutely fantastic... I still can't stop thinking how Asian the glass looks. Anyone else seeing this, or is it just me?
If I go to NYC, I would want to stay in this hotel. Where is it, midtown?

Midtown, across the street from One57. The hotel should be fairly high-end, I'd guess a step below Four Seasons/Mandarin but still very nice.

I'm very impressed with the cladding & this is some of the best 'filler' NYC has seen in a while. Demure, conservative, yet still Gotham--the windows really are fantastic.

Update from EastMillinocket WWNY.







This one kinda evokes a classic New York Loft look. Digging it.

Hopefully that short building next to it will be demolished and something built there to fill the gap and cover the blank wall.

You're correct that smaller white archway building is the entrance to the Parker Meridien. However that 50s/60s-ish brick and glass building next to that should one day be redeveloped.

The squarish 60s building is what I was referring to.

That's the DGA's NY office (Director's Guild of America).

I love how this actually echoes the beautiful building one to its west in the windows. Loving it more and more, and hopefully when the awful DGA brick building two to its east comes down, the design is also compatible with the neighbors...
