I have to say I officially love this tower!

babybackribs2314 Oct 1, 2013 5:47 AM

This is going to be incredible. WOW!

Very elegant design. Wish this would be there in November during my trip. Beautiful tower and original too. :worship:

OK, now this together with the Tower Verre...:cheers:

It looks just like the plot diagram indicated, the tower integrated with Steinway Hall, and the main shaft in the center of the lot. I also think the crown
complements the crown on One57.


More looks from JDS Development...

I wish they could turn this tower 180 degrees and have the stepped back side facing the park.

I noticed that like One57, the park facing side is different. In this case, it's most likely for the panoramic views.

True. Itll be a pretty nice view from the back as well, getting better the higher you go.
also, is southern exposure more desirable for terraces?

NYguy Oct 1, 2013 1:14 PM

^ Maybe.


It's closer to officially being a united lot of 111 West 57th Street...

A look at some of the interior landmarking of Steinway Hall...

If the middle section of Steinway is not landmarked I don't understand the hesitation to make the tower wider, bringing it in line with the western edge of the Steinway lot. This seems a no brainier to me, it makes possible a wider, less scary thin tower and adds units, which means more $.

They could make the tower shorter and wider even without Steinway hall, pulling the tower to 57th Street. But the first five floors or so of the building were already landmarked. The interior landmarking is something different. I think final approval for this new "addition" will be upcoming this week.

BTW, that 9 ft model of the tower will be on display beginning this month at the skyscraper museum downtown.

SKY HIGH & the logic of luxury
Opens October 9th, 2013 through April 19th, 2014


http://skyscraper.org/EXHIBITIONS/SK...wers%20Web.jpg


Quote:

SKY HIGH examines the recent proliferation of super-slim, ultra-luxury residential towers on the rise in Manhattan. These pencil-thin buildings-all 50 to 90+ stories-constitute a new type of skyscraper in a city where tall, slender structures have a long history.

Sophisticated engineering and advances in material strengths have made these spindles possible, but it is the excited market for premium Manhattan real estate that is driving both heights and prices skyward, Reported sales seem almost inconceivable: some penthouses in the buildings featured here are in contract for $47 million to $95 million.

The rarified geographies of where these projects take shape and the economics of high land costs, high-style design and construction, and stratospheric sales prices are deconstructed. The buildings featured include the super-slender towers of the "57th Street phenomenon"-432 Park Avenue, One57, and the feather-thin 111 West 57th scheme-as well as downtown's 56 Leonard, the Four Seasons at 30 Park Place, and the planned Tower D in Hudson Yards.

The exhibition is organized around a series of themes and featured projects. It begins with a history of slenderness and examines the special engineering issues, wind tunnel testing, and damping devices against sway that must be designed for tall and very thin structures. The "invisible Monopoly game" of assembling contiguous lots and piling up air rights, the options for optimizing floor plans and ceiling heights, and the simulation of views and lifestyles of the future domiciles in showrooms and on websites are other topics.

I absolutely love this design, hope to see it start to rise sooner than later.

It gives a good idea of what the side facade will look like. If you look closely to the straight side (right side of the picture) it looks like the glass will be separated at each individual floor. I like that.

I wonder what will be the height of the highest occupied floor?

UTEPman Oct 1, 2013 3:23 PM

I was worried because I really liked the original 600ft+ design, but this is definitely better. It's going to look amazing with the other supertalls at from Central Park.

Hopefully they add a nice lighting scheme to this to make it shine...

sbarn Oct 1, 2013 3:26 PM

OMG. This just became my favorite project in NY.

I like how it has a very NYC look to it. Big, Grand and Slightly Art Deco. :)

Eidolon Oct 1, 2013 4:39 PM

Best looking building in the world since the early 1930s and a true masterpiece of architecture far as I'm concerned. This tower will be a sight to behold and it could become the 5th main landmark in the city along with the ESB, WTC, Chrysler building and the Statue of Liberty.

:notacrook:

^Agreed. :yes:
