^Me too! I'm just hoping a developer has the balls to propose a 2000 footer so if it get's a height cut we'll still get a new tallest.

^ It's less about having the balls than it is about having the right site to do it.

The approval process is expected to kick off before Bloomberg leaves office, but we'll see. This is one tower where they have gone in with the intent to build a skyline defining tower, so we should get that one way or another.

I pray we get nice spire here. All the 57th St. towers have a flat roof - enough of that! A solid 1300 footer along with a pretty spire would be great.

^^well that's true but if they don't go for it it'll end up as a "played-it-safe" 800 footer or something (But I don't think that's what they'll do )

This was the first project of Vanderbilt tower. A first study. I hope that SL Green choose another project.

I agree. At least it shows us they are not afraid of going tall. I'm pretty much convinced we'll see a solid 1300 footer here plus a nice spire.

That was just one of many concepts / ideas.

That's a different site, and was just a concept.

The top looks gorgeous and so does the base. It looks as good as Hudson Yards does, which is saying a lot. I think its great, better than I expected. The height certainly adds to the wow factor.

We're hearing around 87 floors...

Agreed. This project is anything but iconic. Fat, boxy, and an awkwardly places spire. I'm not impressed. Architects these days...

Given that the Hudson Yards towers are getting underway with high profile tenants (or potential tenants), and the foundation work has already been finished on 2 World Trade (with 3 World Trade likely to rise by early next year)...how likely is it that a tower of this size gets built within the next 5 to 10 years...will there be a realistic need for that much office space (assuming everything that was said about HY and WTC)?

This will be prime office space. And yes, there is a need - Manhattan's office stock is so old that more and more (big) companies are considering a move to a new building.

I don't see why it's "that much office space".

Manhattan has 500 million square feet of office space, so even a 2 million square foot tower wouldn't even be one half of 1% of the overall office market.

I'm confused, is this an up-to-date rendering or is it an old one?

The picture makes it seem like it dwarfs the Chrysler building. The only problem (as with the HY North/South towers) is that it's too bloated looking, which throws off the whole design.

If they slimmed the mid section a bit, it'd be a nice looking tower.
