Although Merrick's images were probably massing studies rather than actual renderings, it would have been nice to see those sort of angles. This final piece of the Hudson project is pretty dull.
I don't think they were early massing studies as these are what was presented to the community association and City Hall initially. I think this is close to what they wanted to go with.
I can't believe the density is the same. The new tower is as tall if not taller and looks much bulkier. I can't remember if they got another density variance since the initial application.
