Facade Facelifts: Nightmare on Cedar Street?

New, 5 comments

The transformation of the 12-story 130 Cedar Street from a 9/11-scarred ghost of an office building into a 19-story hotel/restaurant/retail complex has been closely tracked by the gang at Wired New York, and now we're here to take some notice as well. We say "transformation" instead of "restoration" because the building (next to classic FiDi luxury rental 90 West) was stripped down to its beams and frame and given a completely new skin in addition to that seven-story glass topping. A change for the better? The Wired gang isn't necessarily feeling it, but down in FiDi any news is good news, right? Ahead, a construction shot from earlier in the process:
