Well, it depends, but using the your imagination, it will be about 300 ft or so taller than One57. The picture you posted is an extreme view, you won't see many pics from that exact vantage point, but it will be about as tall as 432 Park and nearly as tall as the Nordstrom tower.

In a way, it makes sense. Look at 56 Leonard, 39 Park Street, 432 Park, One57, 111W 57th, Tower Verre, etc. All of these ultra-high end buildings come with architectural flair and style. Even if you're not a fan of the design, they're certainly not bland glass boxes. If I were in that market, and sadly, I am not, I would like by building have a bit of style to it, especially if I am laying out anywhere between 5 and 90 million.

^ The way that market is shaping up, in that particular area of Manhattan, you really do need an attention grabber. Height alone won't do it, because they're all tall.

@NYGuy:
I agree with you on all that. It's just that sometimes people take skyline pics from odd angles that make everything line up "just right".
That pic will demonstrate this phenomenon to the proverbial tee once both towers are well towards completed.

This is my favorite NYC building as of now. Sorry to you TV lovers but this is the best for me ;)

No offense taken, this tower's a masterpiece. It's not like you're picking that disaster of a rendering of the Nordstrom tower over TV. The thing that makes this and TV stand out is the level of details on those towers; TV with its dark metal and glass facade that exposes the structure of the building as well as the artful interiors, Steinway for its undulating Terra cotta and glass facade along with that lean figure and how it integrates the Steinway building to the design. You don't see that amount of details in new buildings these days, where the sole focus is on creating something over the top that catches the public's eye. This in fact is the only reason I have TV ahead of Steinway, along with its level of details, its frame is as unique as it gets, while the stepped facade of Steinway is not necessarily new, tho it looks stunning and is quite well executed. But either way, I'm glad both of those masterpieces will be rising in the city.

^Good! If anyone said Nordstrom tower will be the best tower (not that I think anyone would.) i would slap them through the computer. And TV is also pretty amazing. This just has a more classic NYC look to it and TV is more of a "Fresh New Angular NYC" look.

I know what you mean, I've taken a few pics myself from the 57th street angle. what I'm saying is that it's a very specific point you have to get to in order to get that exact vantage point. The Manhattan skyline is so large that most people won't go through the trouble of trying to get that specific shot. But the canyon (close up) views of it will be fantastic.

This lot is scary small. If you think 432 is skinny this footprint looks much smaller.

at first when this goes up people will be thinking it's just a little highrise or something, and then, BOOM it gets taller than all the buildings right around it and they'll be all like WHAT!? the same wil happen with nordstrom tower except it's not as nice.

Busy Bee Dec 23, 2013 5:01 PM

The tower is wider than the lot width, it overlaps into the Steinway lot behind it's protected section.

That's correct.

Did it get thicker?

NYguy Dec 24, 2013 4:14 PM

^ No, it's always been that way since they moved to the taller tower.

Perklol Dec 25, 2013 10:42 AM

Hmm when did they get financed? It's good to go with the TV and 220.

Thanks, Unfortunately I did not get clear picture of this board but start date is 2014 and completion date states 2016. I think it will not be before 2017 that this tower is ready for tenants.
