    From the January issue:  Los Angeles may soon have its very first Bjarke Ingels-designed development, complete with an elevated park decked over a rail line. Los Angeles-based boutique residential brokerage John Aaroe Group is merging with one of San Francisco’s largest brokerages, Pacific Union International. The Beverly Hills City Council has voted in favor of a controversial $1.2 billion project proposed by a subsidiary of Chinese giant Wanda Group, paving the way for it to move forward. [more]

    It’s not until a project is almost entirely constructed that we can really envision a new building, complex or tower’s place in the neighborhood. A rendering, however, serves as the industry’s crystal ball, sparking excitement for a project that won’t be finished for another few years.

    This year’s roundup of the boldest images to drop in 2016 offers a range of new projects that got the industry buzzing for the future — from the redevelopment of a former sugar refinery on Williamsburg’s waterfront, to a thrill ride atop Madison Square Garden.

    Here’s a look at the hottest renderings of 2016. [more]

    From the December issue: Bjarke Ingels, the principal architect of BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), must get tired of people marveling about his relative youth. Even today at 42, an age when most of his peers still labor in total obscurity, the Danish designer shines out as a star, with more commissions in the works than most established architects see in their entire careers. Plans for his first project in New York, VIA 57 West — a daring pyramid-shaped residential tower along the West Side Highway — made him an overnight sensation back in 2012. [more]

  • From the Los Angeles website: The Gallo family and V.E. Equities are teaming up for a 30-story megaproject along the L.A. River, which would be designed by Bjarke Ingels. The mixed-use project, which would be the Danish architect’s first project in Los Angeles, would include 250 rental units, two boutique hotels and 800,000 square feet of office space, with retail and restaurants on the ground floor.

    To see renderings of the proposed project, watch the video here.

    Ziel Feldman’s HFZ Capital Group is in advanced discussions to line up about $1.2 billion in construction financing for its Chelsea mixed-use megaproject known as the Eleventh, The Real Deal has learned. The loan, if it closes, would be one of the largest construction loans of this cycle. [more]

    Last month, Tishman Speyer filed plans for the Spiral, a 2.2 million-square-foot office tower planned for Hudson Yards. The skyscraper’s name is a reference to the building’s design, which features step-like terraces that wind around the building and look as if they were carved out of the sides of the tower. [more]

    Bjarke Ingels’ client list in the U.S. includes Silverstein Properties, Tishman Speyer and Google. He’s been honored with seemingly every accolade and his perma-smirk graces the cover of several American magazines.

    But in the eyes of Uncle Sam, he’s a hack. [more]

    Bjarke Ingels

    It may be surprising for an architect of his standing, but Bjarke Ingels has a chip on his shoulder when it comes to people implying his work isn’t terribly good.

    “I think the biggest backhanded criticism-compliment I get is that I’m ‘good at communicating.’ Which implies that you’re bad at doing,” he told Rolling Stone.

    “The fact that something is actually understandable and relatable doesn’t mean that it’s unsophisticated or banal. It just means that it’s crystal-clear. And if you can’t explain it, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s so brilliant that ordinary mortals can’t fathom it. It might just mean that it makes no sense.” [more]

    From the August Issue: In a city ruled by conservative straight-lined skyscrapers, Bjarke Ingels’ 2 World Trade Center — when and if it is finally built — will stand out as a playful, teetering staircase. Designed as a series of seven precariously stacked blocks, the 3 million-square-foot building rising over Lower Manhattan doesn’t so much want to go upward as topple over. In a Wired story last year, Ingels likened the process of designing 2 World Trade Center to “playing Twister with a 1,300-foot high-rise.” [more]

    The most exclusive penthouse at HFZ Capital Group’s massive High Line condominium will span more than 7,000 square feet with a wraparound terrace and outdoor pool overlooking the High Line.

    So far, the unit doesn’t have an asking price but the developer’s offering plan for its two-tower colossus at 76 11th Avenue, recently obtained by The Real Deal, offers a peek at the amenities and layouts inside the asymmetrical development. In all, the 800,000-square-foot project will have 302 condos with an average unit size of 1,928 square feet, plus retail and commercial space at the base. [more]

    The futuristic, Eero Saarinen-designed TWA Terminal at JFK

    From Luxury Listings NYC: Traveling through an airport terminal today means wandering florescent-lit hallways in your most comfortable, ugliest clothing and eating greasy food. So Storefront for Art and Architecture’s “Beyond Borders” benefit at JFK’s TWA terminal on Sunday night was a nice, if depressing, reminder that air travel actually used to be a glamorous experience.
