The in-crown grooves better be fucking illuminated at night, tell you what
I've heard the way you can price out balconies as amenities for offices is quite lucrative now, but can't really confirm that myself...Interesting that the office floors appear to have balconies but not the residential floors.
I have no idea why they chose to show this with high chairs and a high table like that. The lady just to the right of 33 Arch looks like she could fall over the side at any second.It was that way because the wind up high can pick up a chair (like the ones in the render) and toss it over the side, sending it tumbling hundreds of feet to the ground.
At least I feel better now about my new MacBook being heavier than my previous one.Another aspirational render, IMO. I worked in a midtown Manhattan high rise with a roof terrace (one of our floors was just above a step back so we had outdoor roof space. It was on the 23rd or 24th floor and for our space the building management and all sorts of people got involved. We had wind studies done and specific types of furniture (heavy stuff) was placed in specific locations - that we were not allowed to move. Like all caps "do not move the furniture - or else". It was that way because the wind up high can pick up a chair (like the ones in the render) and toss it over the side, sending it tumbling hundreds of feet to the ground.
It's the designated smoking area.A balcony where you'll work, near the cube where you normally work, is not going to lure me back into the office. But with the bloom officially off the rose with the millennial lure of 'a beer fridge, a dog washing station and sleep pods that no longer smell like farts', it's not entirely surprising the next big thing is...a balcony.
