Or how about the Central Park Sentinels?

That has a nice ring to it.

I think the USSR tower.

The United Super Socialite Rich Tower.

Where the USSR commitee watched the poor proletariat below, while sipping some imported bourgeoisie wine and exclaiming "Capital Gains" in a hypo manic voice.

Legend saids that they launch paper airplanes to 432 Park, with secret codes written on them under the guise of a chess game. Each move brings them closer to a checkmate, where they will conquer all of NYC with monolithic towers. They also talk shit about One57, for the poor investment. If only they had waited a few years.

A decade from now, when these monolithic towers hugging the south end of Central Park are complete, this will easily be my favorite view of New York City's skyline.

I'm not sure how super rich most of this tower will be though. Is it all billionaire class? I don't think so. One thing for certain though, it will need a name that rolls off the tongue. Steinway is fine, but this one should have been called "the Spire" instead of Tishman's building. It looks more the part.

It has this eerie, noir-ish Chrysler Building vibe to it in that picture.

how about:

The Big Sticks
Tax-Evasion Towers
The Rent-Is-Too-Damn Highrises
Chinatown (oh wait thats already taken)
The Slender Sun Slayers of Snob Street

or my personal favorite:

That Group Of Rather Tall Buildings

Possibly. I wonder what the pricing will be on some of the units. Might be a bargain compared to the other 57 Street towers. Tower Verre is cheap compare to what the units are going for at 432 and One57, and its a much better tower. 16 million might seem a lot, but its way better then 40 million. I wonder if this will eclipse 432 when it comes to the most expensive unit in the city's history? Or will that title go to Nordstrom. Either way, this is something that is for the 1/1000 of 1%. A million is not rich anymore. The standard for being rich is more like 10 million.

For the lucky few who will live in this tower, man, what a privilege to live in such a work of art. This tower, along with 30 Hudson IMO are the best towers to come out of this boom cycle.

^ They will be living in a true landmark. This tower will be among the more memorable icons of the city, both new and old.

Accidentally clicked on the first page then remembered what we started with in the first place. We've come a long way

That was back in the day, when 700 feet was respectable. Nowadays, its a mid rise in this boom. If its not a 1000 feet, it gets lost in the pile.

We now have 700 feet + rising in DoBro and LIC, and mutiple towers. Hell, we have a JDS tower thats 1,000 feet + in DoBro and a 900 footer in Jersey City. Unthinkable 5 years ago. :cheers:

You're right! By the end of this decade the cityscape is going to be almost unrecognizable compared to 2010

jbermingham's witty truisms viewpoint . .
exposing the other dark side of an interesting coin . .

"The Big Sticks

The Rent-Is-Too-Damn Highrises

For the Central Park NIMBY's, "The Shadows of Mordor" is more appropriate. Because for them, 57th Street is where sun meets darkness. Casting a shadow over their precious green land from citadels of power. Evil meets good.

Luckily for us, evil is winning!

chris08876 Mar 15, 2016 2:19 AM

Whatever name they may be colloquially called, what is important is the progress.
