So is it going to be right next to the Solow building as it looks from the view of that vacant lot, or set further west as in the rendering looking southwest?

The empty lot next to 9 W 57th will be another project which Vornado and LeFrak are developing. There haven’t been any details about it yet.

Sedesco’s project is a few buildings west of Vornado’s. There’s also a development site on the south side of 57th. Buildings were razed years ago, and an empty lot has been there for a long time. The lot extends to 56th, and that side is quite large.

I wonder if the owners of the lot also own the Hemisphere House next door, which is a market-rate rental on the SE corner of 57th and 6th. I believe that the owners of the HH owned the old Mayflower Hotel, which is now 15 CPW.

Here's a proposal for a supertall on that site.

That's awesome... out of their 5-6 options, the one above would be a great addition to 57th Street billionaire's row skyline!

I agree. Jeffrey Morris, Inc. owns the HH. According to ACRIS, in 2003, JMI also bought the empty lots next door (52, 54, 56, and 58 W 57th ).

The HH and the empty lots will be redeveloped. It’s a matter of when. I believe that JMI owned the Mayflower Hotel, razed it, and left it as an empty lot for years before selling it to Zeckendorf. The latter built 15 CPW.

This is the HH, and you can kind of see the empty lots next to it.



I’ll be elated when this PoS comes down.

I think it's for another site, truly spectacular though!

I like this project (of this thread) too... if both get built I would be beyond happy

Who knows when this will be built? The developer acquired the entire assemblage in 2003. Something very tall will rise there eventually.
