53 W 53rd Street Tower
Developer | Hines
Architect | Jean Nouvel

Hines, developer of 53 West 53rd Street project, also known as the MoMa tower, has successfully acquired $1 billion in financing needed for the $1.3 billion mega project. In addition, a billionaire from Singapore has invested $300 million equity stake into the project. The 1,050-foot-tall tower, designed by Jean Nouvel, is neighbors to the Museum of Modern Art and will not only feature 145 luxury condominiums, but will also include a 36,000 square foot MoMa gallery extension.

I can’t wait to work on this building, because I probably will.

The Dark Hedges in County Antrim, Ireland is a beautifully eerie avenue of beech trees that were planted by the Stuart family back in the 1750s. Their intent was to create a striking landscape to impress its visitors as they approached the entrance to their mansion, the Gracehill House. You may notice the mystifying scene from the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones,” as it’s served as a setting for the famous Kingsroad.

Green Broadbill: an adult male with chick
Calyptomena viridis (Passeriformes - Eurylaimidae), the Green Broadbill, can be identified by its vibrant green plumage. The species is sexually dimorphic, meaning males and females differ in appearance. Males possess a black dot behind each ear as well as black bands across the wings (as you can see in the photo), while females have duller green feathers and lack any black markings.
This species is native to Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand. It is regarded as Near Threatened species on the IUCN Red List.
