Was pretty mindblowing browsing through, seeing the 225 W 57th St Nordstrom Tower like normal but then seeing the 1,550 FT next to it. That's gonna be insane from the park.

It's a glorious thing seeing a bit of a king of NYC battle taking place right now, big things happening.

1550' to the roof is awesome for NYC!

CCs77 Nov 27, 2012 7:37 PM

What would be breathtaking is the view from that accesory lounge open to the sky on the 85th floor.

It would be like the view from the final scene of the movie "Vanilla Sky" from atop that fictional skyscraper from where Tom Cruise jumps.
Watching the Empire State from above!!!

By the way, the movie is from 2001, so is one of the last on which the Twin Towers appeared.

1550 to the tallest occupied space, I think the roof will be over 1600ft.
:worship:

The title says site prep,so should we see this one start to go up by late 2013?

Man,no other developed city is pumping out skyscrapers like New York City.Wow.

and several months ago the esb was the tallest lol really is amazing

I'm guessing the apartments in this tower will be more expensive than the ones in One 57?

Roof height/tallest in NYC:

1931-1971:ESB
1971-2001:WTC Twins
2001- April 30,2012:ESB
April 30,2012-2014:1WTC
2014-2017:432 Park Ave.
2017:225 57th St.

You see a pattern...

NYC4Life Nov 27, 2012 9:06 PM

Amazing to say the least. Now with a tower this tall, there should be a public observation deck. Can't imagine what the views of Central Park and Midtown from that height will be like!

You see a trend...

Yup, the towers are getting taller and are being built more frequently :banana:

Yeah, the mechanical levels will probably be set back like mechanical space at the top of a lot of skyscrapers. At the same time, when you look at a building like 432 Park, you get 3 distrinct heights - the top of the roof, the top of the actual roof above that, and the parapet height. Still a little murky about this one, but it could be closer to 1,600 ft. Either way, I'm beyond happy with the 1,550 ft figure.

I don't think there will be, for the same reasons towers like One57 and 432 Park don't. However, the residents will enjoy what's being planned.

Is it the 85th floors that's 1550 feet up? If that's the case this thing could break 1700'

I also read on SSP somewhere that the top floor is 85 feet tall, which would mean a building height of over 1635'

however this turns out... it's big.. reallly big :)

At 1,550 feet, the project would shatter the record for tallest residential building set by the 1,004-foot tall One57, and also rise significantly higher than the 1,397-foot tower under construction at the former Drake Hotel site at 432 Park Avenue South
How things have changed these last few years. I remember when the conversation was on Trump World and Ghery's Beekman tower, which wasn't really that long ago.

reencharles Nov 28, 2012 1:11 AM

Woooowwww! What amazing news! I am very happy! I'd be happy with 350 meters (1150 feets), but knowing that this will have in 1550 feets is even better!
The horizon in a few years will be incredible with 432 Park, Tower Verre, One57 and 225 West 57th Street in view of Central Park. Not to mention all the various proposed super tall to be built around the city, and all the others that will come.

This is Mr Gary Barnett, always humbling their rivals.

Correct. The highest occupied space will be on the 85th floor. According to the DoB that's at 1550 ft. Also according to the DoB, this tower will have 88 floors. That's 3 extra floors plus probably a crown. This one should easily get the extra 50 ft. To reach 1600 ft.

Could not believe what I was reading when I came across this earlier today - this is absolutely thrilling!

I remember reading something about the 85th floor being very very large, I'll go find it tomorrow when I'm not so tired ;). If that's the case though, this building could top 1650-1700 feet... we'll wait and see

sorry if it's been posted before, but when do we see renderings?

nycaddict Nov 28, 2012 3:24 AM

i pray to god this thing get build to its impressive hight, but what are the chances of this thing actually getting approved? do you think it will be cut in hight like tower verre? also, when will we know if it got approved or not?

scalziand Nov 28, 2012 3:48 AM

This doesn't require any air right transfers, so it's being built as of right, so Extel can build pretty much whatever they want within the bulk restrictions defined by the zoning.

fastdupree Nov 28, 2012 4:39 AM

Just wanted to say, "Please, please, please build this building at that height in New York!"

It's already "approved".

It's as-of-right, so there's no formal approvals process, provided everything is done within the zoning rules.

Tower Verre is a totally different case. It was not "as of right", and was asking for special zoning exemptions.
