In the insane race to build more and more luxury condos in New York City, the High Line is staking its claim as the scrappy younger sibling of Billionaire’s Row on 57th Street. The latest addition will be an 8-unit, 47,000 square-foot building by “the leather daddy of luxury,” Peter Marino.

If you guessed that the newest luxury tower planned for Midtown, Manhattan would be very tall, skinny, and glassy then you, wise architectural observer, are correct. But don’t be too proud of your guessing skills—predicting that a luxury New York City skyscraper will be a glass-wrapped giant is like guessing Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee. It’s too easy is what we’re saying.

Meet New York’s latest tower after the jump.

The future of the mobile office is on its way, and it’s blurring the lines between the home and the workplace. Spacious is the name of a “coworking hotel” concept being touted by its founder and CEO, Preston Pesek, as the future of the workplace, combining a traditional coworking space, a hotel, and retail into a giant live, work, play experience. And what better way to house the modern nomadic workforce than shipping containers?

For a long time, the 900-foot pedestrian tunnel that leads to the 1 train in Washington Heights was one of New York City‘s creepiest spaces. Now, it’s been transformed into one of the city’s best places to see art—or at least take some impressive Instagram photos.

Errol Morris took the podium at the Grolier Club, the venerated New York City typography and tome institution, to talk about his 2012 experiment to uncover the influence of a typeface. His experiment ran in the New York Times’ Opinionator column and asked readers whether they were optimists or pessimists, based on the text. However, one small, but key, paragraph was rendered in one of six fonts on different computers (only one of the 45,000 respondents wrote Morris having noticed the difference), and this evaluated whether people believed the passage to be true.

Herzog & de Meuron‘s New York City skyscraper, 56 Leonard—aka the “Jenga Tower” because of its stacked-cube appearance, is steadily rising in Tribeca. While the building currently has a pretty standard glass box form with some protruding balconies, its upper floors will taper dramatically, hence the nickname.
