It's always exciting when creative people think of new ways to enliven boring old buildings. So while no immediate plans are in place to transform the Verizon-owned office building at 230 West 36th Street between Seventh and Eighth avenues, it's worth noting that at least someone is thinking of ways to make it better. First pointed to by 6sqft, firm Hayes Davidson has reimagined the lumbering brick structure with a new glassy appendage that could rise using air rights that were being shopped around to developers last year. While a Times article mentioned by 6sqft said that the square footage was being shopped as a potential hotel site, it appears that Hayes Davidson has rendered space for another office tower.
