I'm no fan of Congress but I somehow doubt they'll manage to kill this.

Thanks for posting the Demo permit NYguy. If all is good do you know how long it could be before we could see them show up and start the demo.:yes:

As far as I know, they're working on it now. Those demo permits have all been approved, and the store was being gutted, last we saw.

As not unusual, the first filing was disapproved...

Yeah all "disapproved" means is "not yet approved". I'm sure it will be an iterative process with the DOB, particularly on a project of this size and scope.

You mean as opposed to 1,700 ft? (the other reported height)?

We don't know the exact height. We know it will be at least 1,550 ft., because that's what the permits indicate.

Yeah, at least is the best way to put it. Barnett said the design was very preliminary, and they've only recently announced architects who will push the design into its final form. It's very likely the tower is higher, but 1,550 feet is good either way.

It's not "bad" at all. Just part of the process. All work needs a permit from the buildings department, and everything must be in order. Permits are filed until everything is correct. Even if approved though, that permit would have been revised with a later permit, as plans become more complete.

People say 500m+ towers are popping up all over China. That's true but they are being built in a more or less sparsely populated area.

An example: Hefei, third- tier Chinese city. 502m tall tower going up right here:

Whereas in New York a tower of similar height is going to be built here...

Let's just keep the topic on what's being developed here. There's no connection to China.

I know Barnett said there wouldn't be a spire, but that was to the 1,550 ft height.
I wouldn't mind a spire above that, some inspiration from the street...

:previous: I agree with NYguy on this one -- a spire would certainly be interesting indeed. :tup:

NEW YORK NEW DEVELOPMENT: THE NEXT CHAPTER


January 12th, 2013

Quote:


Moving forward, developers will have to be much more innovative: This week, I met with a mega-developer planning a rather exciting new building. It was refreshing to hear him talk about the need for innovation and beauty before dollars per square foot…..all are important, but the blind focus on pricing alone may prove to be a wake-up call to many developers and their bankers in the coming months.
