New York skyline

New York Times architecture critic, Nicolai Ouroussoff discusses buildings under development that will change the New York skyline (via Gothamist). I am particularly struck by Santiago Calatrava's 80th South Street Tower featuring ten condominiums at US$30m a unit.

The building will be Mr. Calatrava's first residential project in the United States. The principal units of the building are 45-foot glazed cubes, each of which contains four floors of residential space. Twelve cubes are cantilevered, in steplike fashion, up the building's vertical core, which in plan is a slender concrete rectangle.

An unofficial Calatrava site has more on the architect's work.
