First Rendering of 1 WTC Base

First Rendering of 1 WTC Base

This is the first rendering of how the base of 1 World Trade Center will look up close — a shimmering, richly textured facade on four sides of glass, stainless steel and aluminum. While bickering goes on over the iconic office tower’s crown, its street-level face is just as vital — not only to Condé Nast employees who will move in by 2015, but to the millions of visitors to the 16-acre WTC site.

 

The “podium” design by Skidmore Owings & Merrill is the end product of a tortured history that included the dumping of an earlier scheme over costs and fears its custom-fabricated glass would too easily shatter.The new image released by the skyscraper’s owners, the Port Authority and the Durst Organization, shows for the first time how its fortified base — a cube 185-feet on each side — will look to people arriving for work.

 

Preliminary renderings last year suggested a monolithic, corporate-looking wall despite a supposed “pleated” effect. But the image shown here promises a warmer welcome. It is articulated by vertical glass fins protruding from panels of stainless steel slats. The fins will be arrayed in patterns that will vary as they move up the facade.

 

Perforated aluminum screens behind the steel slats will be illuminated, making the entire tower podium glow by night — a suitable companion to the lit-up base of 7 World Trade Center nearby. Cladding the podium will cost $40 million. Installation is to start in October.

 

The re-do of the base is the latest chapter in the former Freedom Tower’s complicated saga, including architect David Childs’ original design being scuttled over security concerns and the tower having to be moved from its original site.

 

Childs then redesigned the entire building. The finished project reflects his work on the soaring octagonal “shaft,” but no longer on its apex or base — a hybrid result it will be left for future generations to judge.

Got a yen for a bowl of matzo ball soup, some house-cured pastrami on hand-sliced rye, and a little chocolate babka bread pudding but your hand has somehow fused itself to the remote control and you’re too embarrassed to leave your apartment? Not to worry, Kutsher’s Tribeca now delivers.

Woolworth Building for Sale

Woolworth Building for Sale

 

••• “Developer Laurence Gluck is on somewhat of a winning streak. Just 11 months after a federal judge ruled the developer did not illegally deregulate apartments at his 1,328-unit Tribeca complex Independence Plaza at 80 North Moore Street, a state Appellate Court has followed suit, reversing an earlier ruling to the contrary.” —The Real Deal

 


••• “The Post hears there are multiple offers for the [Woolworth Building]—two for the entire building, and others for just the top of the tower. Plans to convert that portion of the building into two condos have already been approved once, so we wouldn’t be surprised if a new owner revived that idea (hint, hint). Either way, the $500M offers are a nice bump in value for the Cass Gilbert-designed building, which last sold for $137.5 million in 1998.” —Curbed

 

••• “Kerry Schuss, purveyor of KS Art on Leonard Street in Tribeca, is moving into Lisa Cooley’s old space on Orchard Street. Mr. Schuss, the gallerist who represents Sonic Youth band mates Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon as well as skater-journalist and artist Jocko Weyland, will open his first show at the Lower East Side space on April 14.” —Gallerist

 

••• The Blockheads in the World Financial Center closed. Ed’s Lobster Bar, Quality Burger, Fatty Snack and Casa Masa have reopened their kiosks on the WFC plaza. Pier 25′s Sweet Love Snack Bar is expected to open in the middle of the month. Harry’s Italian is still set to open in a week or so in Goldman Alley. —Broadsheet

 

••• “Architects Criticize W.T.C. security plan.” —Downtown Express

 

••• “The peregrine falcons that have nested at a Financial District skyscraper for more than 15 years are gone. A male and female falcon started carving out a nest on a 14th-story ledge at 55 Water St. early this year, just as they do every winter, but the couple disappeared in mid-February before laying any eggs, said Frank Magnani, a vice president at New Water Street Corp., the building’s owner.” —DNAinfo

 

••• “Representatives from Major League Soccer on Thursday will make a presentation to a Hudson River Park Trust task force, whose members include community leaders and elected officials, about the possibility of putting a field on the rapidly deteriorating pier, sources familiar with meeting said. A spokesman for the trust declined comment, while a spokesman for the league didn’t return a call.” —Crain’s  -KM
