Disregard the height figure, that's what it was.

Here's a look at that for what it's worth.

I bet that diagram shows a facade system for the Nordstrom base. From my experience (I'm an architect) those type of mullions are pretty uncommon on towers. We shall see I suppose...

Why is this listed as proposed on the diagram page?:???:

This building has been u/c for almost two months now, and I'm specifically referring to the SSP rules for u/c.

I'm not getting why it hasn't changed status in SSP.

It did change status when foundational construction began over the summer, and I remember that moment because hunser was happy to see both 1 WTC and 217 W 57 side by side in the supertall forum. Somebody intentionally moved it back to proposals. Maybe they don't want it to rise :haha:

KevinFromTexas Sep 13, 2014 7:13 AM

This is going to be one seriously awesome skyscraper. I cannot wait to see it rise.

They're still digging, guys. Just be patient. As soon as some foundations are placed then it'll be under construction officially.

Again, foundation work began 2 months ago. By my reading of SSP rules, that means this building should be u/c.

A somewhat off topic question, but while walking on 57th today, I passed by a very large vacant lot, on the south side of the street, near 57th and 6th. Does anyone know what is going on here? There doesn't appear to be any work going on, but I would think that such a large, cleared parcel would be absolute gold in this market.

Ryan81 Sep 15, 2014 3:52 AM

Really people....the status on this site doesn't make this building any more or any less under construction.....

That site kills me. I wish they would combine it with the apartment building next door and build a mega tower...

And this.

NYguy Sep 15, 2014 9:23 AM

^ I don't get it either.


There's no anti-NY thing going on. NY threads make up a lot of the activity here.

What we do have is a lack of active photography on sites. I'm sure there has been work going on. But clear evidence of construction speaks more than words.

chris08876 Sep 15, 2014 10:14 AM

^^^

In my honest opinion, I think we should have a balance of both photos and reading material to back up construction. This same issue plagued some of the Miami threads where there was written evidence of construction, but little pics. What we found out in the end was that many of them had be U/C for months, but where listed as proposed for a while.

Photos. Photos. Photos.

Anyone can say, write, or type anything. Photos of actual construction are what they are. So get at it.

And this.

Even if they didn't take down the building adjacent to it (which if memory serves me correctly, that building should be taken down) the lot is still HUGE. Not enough air rights or something?

KevinFromTexas Sep 15, 2014 12:44 PM

All the photos I've seen of the site on Flickr and New York Yimby show them still digging as recently as August 30. I also checked Wired New York, nothing. Can't someone take a photo looking into the pit?

ILNY Sep 15, 2014 1:42 PM

^ This is my photo from August 30th. Not much has changed, they are still digging and blasting rock. It will take another 3-4 months before the site is fully excavated.

KevinFromTexas Sep 15, 2014 1:57 PM

That's what I was thinking. They won't be able to start foundations until the site is fully excavated. Digging is notoriously time consuming.

NYguy Sep 15, 2014 3:53 PM

My guess is that foundation work, or at least the start is included in the 20 month process.

True, it's a through block site, so must have lots of FAR. Sorry to go OT, but that site has always intrigued me...

This is a response to a request for information about a parcel of land seen "while walking on 57th today"...

Could you be may be referring to a tower to be built by Michael Shvo? I'm not talking about the one proposed for downtown, but an even taller one on 57th.

Here's a link to a video I found on a Shvo tower page for skyscrapercity.com:
