^^^
Thanks for the phenomenal update, ILNY!
How tall would you say this is now? It's always hard to tell from pictures.

ILNY Apr 5, 2016 6:20 PM

^^^ Thank you Vortex11. The core is double the store height, my guess is around 250ft.

Wow! 250 ft already. I never would have guessed. So it must look quite larger in person!

It definitely has the feel of something big going up.

Maybe we're in for a surprise!

Technically, couldn't the 1550' figure on the building permit refer to the highest occupied floor? Then a crown could add another 100 feet?

I wish. Without the spire this thing is a sleeper. :sleep:

I think the renderings we've seen have been official, I don't see why not.

It looks to be to the roof from every rendering we've seen so far... still a monster building regardless.

I don't know if I would consider the renderings official yet. Until this building is listed on Extells website with its own renderings there, I think everything we've seen so far can only be described as leaks. That's why I still think we're in for a surprise, whether good or bad we'll have to see.

this one kinda looks like manhattan's modern version of teotihuacan :D

a big cornice of wild prominent mexican masks . .
or some kind of gargoyles . . stone or metal . .
would almost make up for obliterating . .
their bold ideal spire solution . .

They aren't, though they do give an idea of what the tower will look like. Official renderings haven't been released, Extell doesn't even have one on site, though I don't know how long the DOB will let that pass. They were forced to put one up at the Manhattan Bridge project.

I'm telling ya guys. Something sneaky is going on here. I'm curious what it is

Citylover94 Apr 8, 2016 1:09 PM

This might not be the place to ask this but how can developers never publicly release official renders for projects in NYC?

In Boston which I am more familiar with renderings are release with almost every meeting at the Boston Redevelopment Authority and there are usually huge amounts of design information and renderings release at the Boston Civic Design Commission meetings. There are always final official renderings by the time the building is under construction. Just curious what the difference is?

There is no such requirement in NYC. Pretty pictures have nothing to do with the permitting process, at least not for as-of-right projects.

Re. the discussion on "official renderings", I don't know what people are looking for. Gary Barnett never releases images of anything pre-marketing (anything you see is second-hand leaked), and we have enough leaked images to understand the building's appearance (plus the building permits give exact schematics).

Rendering with the super talls.

I could kinda see the necessity for a spire to balance everything out aesthetically. The roofs are to close to each other.

mrnyc Apr 8, 2016 6:09 PM

now that is quite a view. and helpful too. it gives you a good very idea of the height comparisons, which i was curious about seeing from that kind of viewpoint.

Unless 111w 57th got a height boost, then this rendering is off. Nordstrom is 112ft taller than it and is closer to the "camera" for this photo. That means it should look noticeably taller opposed to the equal height shown here.
