Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it. Most outlets aren't going to give you an exact height. Until it passes 1400 ft, it's still a 1300 ft tower to most. And as with the headline, we know this won't be "Manhattan’s Tallest Condominium Tower".

How would we know that if we don't know the final height yet?

I would just go with the permits for now. Thats the best, accurate source for the height/dimensions. I doubt it will change its current height. Articles written about developments tend to deviate from the real height and/or round. Not all the time, but sometimes it happens.

Go with what you already know. You know the Nordstrom tower has a taller height, and if no taller height is given for this one, why would you assume it?

I thought you meant in comparison to 432 park in which it could be dead even my mistake.

Kinda forgot about Nordstrom tower.

Excavation is mostly for small building(entrance) to 111. Majority of the tower will be build "on top" of Steinway building. Can somebody explain how the tower will be supported?

It will be pretty much built the same as if it were an empty lot. Part of Steinway will be removed/altered for the construction. The portion of the building where most of the tower will rise will be removed.

A lengthy piece of SHoP Architects...

How SHoP Became NYC's Go-To Megaproject Architects

SHoP has expanded to 190 employees, 90 of them hired over the last year. The firm has plans to add swing space on the 10th floor of the Woolworth building in January 2015.

Growing, forward-looking architecture firm moves into iconic New York City skyscraper: the symbolism is obvious. But as with most things SHoP, the decision works on multiple levels—the partners are able to list at least four, trading off sentences as they sit together around a conference table. They've had a decade to ponder the bigger meaning of the Woolworth Building from SHoP's previous perch across the street. "Part of the core of this office is really how to work with materials, and how to manifest buildings and architecture that is of our time using...traditional materials," says Chris Sharples, and the "scaled intimacy" of material found in the architecture of the Woolworth Building is an example the SHoP team hopes to emulate. "We talk about sustainability—not so much in terms of how buildings metabolize energy, but more about the idea [that] if you make something beautiful that people take care of, it's gonna last forever. This building is full of new tech companies."

I recognize the tower from the Penn Station concept...

And what looks like their old proposal for the Nordstrom site, but seemingly taller...

Any reason on why this project got moved from "under construction" back to "proposed"???

Perklol Jun 1, 2014 5:47 AM

Since when? Maybe it was a mistake by a mod?

NYguy Jun 1, 2014 12:03 PM

It's not technically under construction, though they are moving to that phase.

Probably. It has been considered under construction for the last week, then it got moved back to proposed just a day or two ago

Chinese Buyers snap up NYC skyscrapers

June 7, 2014
New York Post

New York is back in the high life — with a new generation of towers more than 800 feet tall expected to crowd the skyline in the next few years.

Why so many new skyscrapers? Demand, for one — foreign buyers in particular are eager to snap up a spot in Manhattan. And modern businesses are looking to new office towers for the latest in energy efficiency, Internet access and style.

But one of the biggest changes is technological.

Structural advances mean ulta-thin towers higher than the Empire State Building (1,250 feet at roof, 1,454 feet at spire) can be built on spaces one-half acre or even smaller.

Here’s a look at some of the towers headed our way:

"111 West 57th St. 1,400 feet Condos, 60ft. wide at base, top tapers to 'disappear'"

Thats some positive news. On this, and 1 Vanderbilt.

Double L Jun 8, 2014 2:41 PM

Wow that building will stand out.

Plokoon11 Jun 8, 2014 4:35 PM

I love this tower very unique looking, not that the other Park supertall isn't interesting.

Just when many architects claim that 432 Park is slim (as in the new "slim is in" design), this tower shall claim the crown as the skinniest tower in the city.
