In the future, any buildings you wish to see replaced can be discussed in the thread below….

A good angled view showing the hotel (center) and its surroundings...

If only we could get a facadectomy and build the new tower behind the classic hotel facade. The hotel holds the streetwall perfectly and the this new one treats it like a Gene Kaufmann hotel podium, except with a very skinny Pelli tower on it

Can't wait till this dumpy hotel is demolished.

This portion of 7th Ave. is dark and depressing with the aging dowager hotels. Some new blood, please. This is Billionaire's Row, steps to Central Park. A few new supertalls, please. There will still be a bunch of brooding old hotels.

I think that the Wellington is a nice old building. I’m curious to see what Barnett comes up with.

I’m also very curious what he’s doing with his empty lot across the street.

the wellington exterior is classic gotham, but not memorable.

barnett will do right by the site with a decent, skinny supertall.

i will miss that whole/full intersection being hardcore gothic gotham though.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed. His plans for 570 Fifth are underwhelming.
