That's the Rockaways. It's like a sandbar peninsula beyond the bay.

That render has more detail than anything we've been shown before, particularly on the upper floors. :cheers:


Closer look at it here. Still needs a spire or something.

Definitely.

In that render it looks like the roof is at the very top, as opposed to the current trend of having a parapet around exposed mechanicals, like 432 PA or WTC-1 where the actual roof is significantly lower.

There's definitely a parapet. It's to hide most of the "ugly" stop at the top, though it probably wouldn't hide the new maintenance unit.

Nearing the height of Time Warner Center, nearly half its height...

If only they add a spire the tower will have a huge impact on the skyline

If I may, two off-topic things:

1. Are they making TV/53W53shorter than it is for a reason? Or is it a perspective thing?

2. What's the tower being highlighted in the foreground?

No, totally different neighborhoods. You're linking to an Extell project on the Upper West Side. This tower is in the opposite direction, near Times Square and the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

It appears to be a proposed tower at 9th Ave. and 41st Street. Maybe another planned Extell tower? There's another existing tower a block north, but it looks different.

That's an Extell property. "The Orion" 350 W 42nd.

Perspective and location. It will look smaller than it is because of those taller buildings and the mass of buildings that surround it.

Is 108 the number the real floors of this tower?

Design-mind Dec 2, 2017 4:14 AM

Thanks for those Streetscaper. The crown actually looks decent in those renderings.

faridnyc Dec 2, 2017 8:41 AM

There is no spire , i hope that they will put it at last !!!

Busy Bee Dec 2, 2017 2:40 PM

The eastern projection of the tower rises too high. The design would be so mush more graceful if the cantilevered section was 100-150 feet shorter.
