Could give us a good idea of what the design will look like.

Yeah, I'm thinking about it every day.:)
It will be amazing follow the evolution of the city.

That last rejected design is UGLY.

CGII Nov 25, 2012 3:27 AM

Y'all is bananas. SHoP design is sick and SHoP is sick.

Zapatan Nov 25, 2012 2:52 PM

take the spire away and I like it...


I thought that was a place holder btw?

Dac150 Nov 25, 2012 4:20 PM

Would've been neat to have something that original apart of the skyline. That design is sort of 'old news' though . . .

I'm with you. We would have been incredibly lucky to have seen that one rise. SHoP is a great firm. I'd put them alongside DS+R and Holl as my favorite NYC architects.

Yes, it is old news. Thankfully so, because I don't think it fits that part of the skyline. I don't even want to talk about that spire, though I do think the new tower should have one.

I'm looking forward to plans for the Nordstrom tower, and we are getting close to work starting on the site.

over at ssc they said thats the highest occupid floor so it can be taller if it has a spire !

yankeesfan1000 Nov 26, 2012 9:25 PM

Holy. Hell. Lets hope the design is as impressive as the height. I can't even get my head around that height.

Hudson11 Nov 26, 2012 9:36 PM

at 1500 ft this tower will be a bit less imposing as depicted here

Hell yeah, if this breaks 500m (with spire and / or crown) NYC is definitely on the right way for a 2000 footer (-> GCT Tower). That's how this city builds its towers, I mean you just don't jump from 200m to 600m as some other cities do *cough*.

Anyway, even the DOB is just too awesome. This news made my day. :cheers:

PS: it's only 88 floors! One would expect at least 100 at this height.

I smell a spire to get over 1,500' from 88 stories.

1550 is the roof height it might have a spire making it taller no one knows yet lol

Holy hell is right. This is incredibly exciting news.
Since I'm relatively new to this, can someone explain the significance of the Architect of Record to me? In this case: AAI, P.C.: http://www.adamson-associates.com/#
They're associated with the WTC and the MoMA tower among many other impressive projects, but does the fact that they're on the record mean that they will actually be designing the tower, or at least officially attached to the project in some way?

Also, this is the site of the "AAI" that Curbed linked to, claiming that they would be doing the design: http://www.aaiarchitects.net
Entrusting New York's newest tallest building to a firm without a single skyscraper in their portfolio has the potential for hilarity... but I was more than a little relieved to discover that wasn't the case.
