According to the floor plans, this looks like a one-unit-per-floor with some units occupying two floors. Right?

Here’s how NYC’s skyline is going to change

Give a high-five to the Super Talls — the city’s next generation of cloudbusting towers, shown here as a thundering herd.

Love them or hate them, the nine giants in this composite created for The Post by development-happy Web site New York YIMBY (Yes In My Back Yard) are all under construction. Not included: projects that reached their full height last year or are still at the demolition stage. Some are already lifting their heads visibly skyward. Others are rarin’ to rise from foundations.

They aren’t mere proposals, but fully financed done deals — an illustration of how New York City has gone skyscraper-mad. All are at least 900 feet high; six will stand 1,000 feet and up. By comparison, One World Trade Center is 1,776 feet tall including the mast (1,368-foot roof height); the Empire State Building, 1,454 feet to the top of spire; One Bryant Park, 1,200 feet; and the Chrysler Building, 1,046 feet.

........217 West 57th St.

This rendering from YIMBY is the most detailed yet of Extell’s long-awaited, so-called Central Park Tower designed by architects Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill. Its 130-floor, 1,550-foot height makes it easily the city’s tallest residential structure and loftier than One World Trade Center’s roof. The city’s first Nordstrom department store has signed a lease to occupy the first seven floors. Above it will be approximately 130 super-luxe condo apartments. Completion: 2019.

More polished rendering of what we've already seen.

Without the spire, the design is fairly bland and uninspired. Not worthy of being NY's tallest to roof. This tower and verre need to switch heights!

ATLksuGUY Jan 11, 2016 7:04 PM

Honestly it looks decent. Just needs the spire.... :runaway:

The Post article said 130 floor. That's gotta be a mistake, right?

Nope. The bottom residential tier is actually 3 apts/floor, and they get become 2 and 1 the higher you go. The floor plans in the photos you're referring to are special floors that are spread throughout the building and have balconies, etc. The penthouse up top is, IIRC, actually 3 floors for one unit.

That would be the marketing designated floor level; the tower will only have 99 actually floors.

Those renderings are awesome, and better yet it's missing so many buildings like 2WTC, Vanderbilt etc. etc...

:)

Yeah that's because it's only supposed to depict the towers currently under construction. Hopefully 1 Vanderbilt and 2 WTC will be added to the group some time this year...

Ah okay silly me, makes sense.

Crazy to think that the ones I just mentioned plus Girasole, that Brooklyn building and so many others will join them soon enough :slob:

I think so, since the article also mentions 130 units, some of which are full floor units. Pleasant surprise if not though.

Dale Jan 12, 2016 3:41 AM

I think they all look spectacular.

That's correct. It used to be just the residential towers with extra high ceilings did that. I remember Donald Trump first made an issue of it in New York with his "90-story" Trump World Tower. But it's been done a lot, with everything from the TWC to the WTC. That's why when we initially get floor counts from filings, it's not always an indication of height.

thanks NYguy & Hunser for posting Cuozzo's "thundering herd" (above) . .
the line up of 9 new Manhattan towers . . all of heroic height . . impressive . .
But only 3 of these have impressive crowns . . . a crown being -
the prominent summit portion where a skyscraper's form should be most refined . .
- Verre - 111W57 - 30HY - . . These 3 terminate gracefully . .
(the angled crown of 30HY is obscured by the perspective used in the illustration) . .

5 of the 9 tall buildings have a mere inept "who cares" 60's sliced-off strategy . .
leading to underwhelming "anywhere-in-the-world" skyline profiles . .
Though not very apparent in the above illustration - Child's building -
(35HY) makes a timid . . but better-than-nothing attempt . .
at a little something happening . .

What's that unarticulated dark box atop 220 CPS ? . . cheap corrugated metal ? !! . .
175 Greenwich really needs its horns back . . and not the wimpy "stumps" version . .
and without the corset-bulge - Diller's crack going down the top half of 15HY . .
surely isn't enough . . It literally looks - well . . "half-assed" . . so to speak . .

The saddest unfortunately leads the pack . .
Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill's 217 W57 . . utterly SHORN - humiliated . . . .
It ain't no crisp self-assured Twin-Tower flat-top that it sports . .
those tall guys double-slammed minimalism like no other towers ever will . .
though the bloated blousey proportion of boring 1 & 2 Manhattan West . .
seem to be making an irresolute attempt at an imitation . .
Sadder still . . is that 217 had it tailored so right . . topped with no ordinary spire . .
then some swine wrong-headedly blundered . . and had it lobbed off . .

The tops are yet awhile in coming . .
maybe one or two of these can still be sorted out . .
I'm not "hating" I'm hoping. Taint nothin' the matter with that.

I think that without the spire the 130 floor number is absolutely realistic !!!!

They probably were confused by the 130 units, that or it will have "130 floors" in the same way that Trump World Tower or One 57 have "90" just for marketing sh*t's and giggles.
