In a cluster of similarly sized towers in height in front of it, it may not be easily visible. Also considering this will be a slim tower being surrounded by bulky towers.

yeah, i thought it could be possible, when i saw the google image from above, and so the park, where the ferry is... but as u say, lot of similar towers around, i would love if it can be visible tho.. haha.

My guess would be it'll be more easily visible if u came from the north along the Hudson since you'll be looking at downtown from the lowrise perspective.

It wouldn't bee too visible from that angle.

My best guess from looking at the perspectives is that she'll be easiest spotted from a generalized east-west vantage point, i.e. Queens and a good slice of Brooklyn.
Again, I say great company for 20 Exchange.

It would best be viewed from this angle, by miamihitman

Apparently the tower behind is about to come down or so im told

NYC4Life Jun 10, 2008 3:07 AM

Is the building being demolished part of the Nobu site, or will it become a site for a new tower?

Scruffy Jun 10, 2008 3:18 AM

If I'm not mistaken, demolishing part of that tower is what allowed the increase in Nobu's size.

Lecom Jun 10, 2008 8:38 PM

^correct. It's a shame though, I liked that ultra-dense block, and taking away that wing takes away from that density that is hard to find in most places in the country.

NYguy Jun 10, 2008 9:52 PM

older version?

That's strange. The numbers are smaller but visually it looks the same.

America 117 Jun 11, 2008 11:03 PM

why is everything opening in 2010 or 2011
but NYC is going to look very differnt when all this stuff is done
like WTC, tower verre, nubo tower,and much much more
were not going to remember what NYC looked like when all this is built.

Scruffy Jun 12, 2008 3:29 AM

if this older version is any indication of the new one, this tower is a slab. I thought it would be thin on all sides like Saya or 50 west. But it las a wide side. still cool, but less so

Tower Verre is still a proposal which is awaiting approval (or rejection) from the city's planning commision. But even without Tower Verre, NY's landscape and skyline is changing drastically fast. Let's hope for Verre to come onboard :tup:
