Watch a Building Be Demolished and a Glass Box Get Built

New, 2 comments

After our look yesterday at 165 years of Midtown development, let's focus in on just one project. A tipster passed along the video above, Shawmut Design and Construction's short time-lapse look at the construction of the Cubes retail building at 120 West 42nd Street. This particular time-lapse is extra fun because construction involved the demolition of a six-story building and a dig 32 feet below the street. (The building's first tenant, signed a few month ago, is the kind of unexciting chain we might expect for a glass box: an Equinox gym.)
