Midtown Office Building's Facelift; 60 Stories of Fun in Hell

New, 3 comments

MIDTOWN?West 34th Street is always in need of cosmetic upgrades, and commercial megalandlord SL Green just announced it finished one at 333 West 34th Street, an office building the company purchased in 2007. The landlord enlarged and renovated the lobby and created a new 21,000-square-foot retail space, all through "recapturing cafeteria and other underutilized space." There's now an 18-foot-high glass wall wrapping the front of the building, the perfect sheltered and safe hangout to meet the guy you found on Craigslist to buy your Rangers tickets.

HELL'S KITCHEN?More proof from a tipster that Related's massive tower rising at 440 West 42nd Street will look like those leaked renderings: "I spoke to one of the construction guys and he told me the building would have two heights; the west side of the block would be 25 stories and the east side would be a whopping 60 stories tall. Holy moly, that's as big as the Silver Towers." True, but this one's all laid back about getting stoned and stuff. Awww yeah. [CurbedWire Inbox]
