Who cares, you'll be long dead in 100 years.

For those who don't know NY well, this photo by John Flint shows the proximity of the two 300m + towers that Extell is building on 57th St.

Fingers crossed they plan to build something tall and iconic here, along the lines of the MoMa tower.

Are there news about this building ?

RobertWalpole Oct 17, 2011 10:54 AM

No they're still proceeding with demolition.

manchester united Oct 17, 2011 9:20 PM

Is it true that also this tower will be a supertall ?

It should be. It has a lot more air rights than One57, which Extell also is developing a few sites to the east.

I heard a rumor from an inside source-obviously no guarantee-that the tower will be ~90 floors. We shall see...

If it's true, that should yield a roof height around 1,250', although that doesn't account for any potential architectural elements on top.

More demo permits were filed with the DOB on 18 Oct. 2011:

Wow, 1250 feets? I find it very unlikely for this area. I believe it will be somewhere between 1083 feets.

It would be great to have a building on top of 1050 feets facing the central park. And surely this building would yield many sales because of this incredible view (The example of his "brother" One57 of the same company. The Extell is amazing!

If it's "as of right," they can build as high as they please.

reencharles Oct 19, 2011 3:25 AM

This is the question. How high they want. :shrug:

But it would be fantastic to have a building with about 350 meters in this area. Especially with the loss of height of the Tower Verre for Midtown.

RobertWalpole Oct 21, 2011 1:31 AM

Demolition work was proceeding when I walked by on 20 Oct. 2011.

RobertWalpole Oct 24, 2011 3:41 PM

Barnett's success with One57 bodes well for the rumoured 90-story, 1250 foot tall 225 W57th!

Demolition is now well underway--the two buildings in black netting on 57th are now the same height. Passed by last night but didn't get any pictures as it was too dark.
