An Expert Is Someone From Across The Ocean
Duany Plater-Zyberk & Co. and UDA are over in England working for the Deputy Prime Minister on several new towns, and now New York City has announced the hiring of Italo–British architect Sir Richard Rogers to plan the East River waterfront. Rogers has proposed burying the Robert-Moses-built highway that runs along the river — quite an expensive proposition, since that would put it below the level of the river for 9 or 10 miles. For renovation currently going on for a short stretch of the highway, the cash-strapped city has built a temporary bypass out over the river in order to avoid any closure of the road during construction.
The grass is always greener . . .
Rogers, a strongly ideological Modernist, can't be very happy about the latest British poll.
More information is available at Curbed, the interesting new blog about New York real estate.
