a quick montage I threw together with paint and the CTBUH NY conference list to display the supertalls of NYC's own billionaires' row:

225 w 57th dwarves One 57. Seeing them next to each other will be surreal, One 57 is outstanding alone.

Bravo! Can't wait to see the conversions from proposed to under construction for a number of these in the very near future. NY is finally taking a lead role again in building skyscrapers with great architecture at great heights.

Its going to be an epic sight seeing all of these cranes everywhere. Given the fact that many of these are in demo and/or will start in 2015; its going to be a race to the sky. :D

In 2020, the postcards will all have to be changed. What we see now will be severally outdated 5 years from now. Hopefully the whole Olympic 2024 Bid thing for the city will actually happen. Theres still a chance!

Indeed...2015-2016 will be a big year for skyscraper development. Nordstrom, 111w 57th, 220 CPS, 520 park, 3WTC, 30 Hudson Yards etc will be rising in addition to a host of other smaller towers, not to mention site work will have begun for sites like 425 park.

Hudson,

Can you add 1 Vanderbilt and 30 HY to that?

It' a box for the most part, I'm still disappointed over that. The final render better have something better in the facade detail otherwise it's just another selfish tower development that is turning its face inward rather than giving something back to the city (the average person, not skyscraper nuts)!. I think the city ought to push good design by awarding some more FAR for a design that is more interesting and meets certain criteria for quality.

Wow! That's under construction no question. Do you have any November pictures? When do you guys think this will start rising into street view?

Crawford Nov 19, 2014 5:28 PM

I've stated this before on this thread, this building has been u/c per SSP standards, for a few months now. I am still mystified by mods haven't moved this building to u/c.

Ploppalopp Nov 19, 2014 6:08 PM

Since the building is now under construction, is the height/design basically final or can it be changed?

I'd say its final. Any sort of height change would require a slew of new meetings and all that and would delay the process. Remember, time is money. For every month that this sits behind schedule, the developer loses millions.

So does that mean that they are still going to build it one stupid foot shorter than one wtc? I sure hope not.

chris08876 Nov 19, 2014 6:19 PM

Probably. But who knows as its to early. It would be nice if they sneak that in at the last moment. :haha:

Sort of a ESB versus Chrysler moment like in the 30's. Although I'm hoping that 1 Vanderbilt will get a height increase. Why not make that the tallest while where at it. Sort of the 21st Century ESB in a way. But if it makes you feel better, this will be taller in a sense due to the elevation. So from sea level, this is the tallest in NYC when finished. Similar to how pinnacle wise, the ESB when viewed from the ground over in NJ near the water stands close to 1,550 feet due to the elevation. (To the pinnacle)

I really hope that they do make it taller than the wtc. If they don't, we might have something like the Philadelphia city hall height limit in NYC. That would really suck and limit the city. In my opinion, it's a bigger deal than the extra twig that they will put atop this building.
