    A masterpiece. Let's hope the developer won't cheap out so it turns out as the renderings (or even better).

    This is just great architecture. Although not that tall for New York standards, this tower will become very famous.

    Design looks interesting, can't wait how this one will turn out. Cladding looks OK too.

    Lovely tower, New York needs more of these. I'm sure most people will believe it was built in the 30s. Job well done.

    Very elegant tower. The crown fits nicely and the cladding is top-notch.

    What an abomination to the New York skyline. It's tall and that's it. Seriously, couldn't make it any cheaper looking.

    Yes, there's a good chance. One57 was about 950' with the DOB height and ended up over 1000 feet.

    I agree. With all those new supertall projects New York will regain the skyscraper heaven once again.

    I've noticed that New York is on the way to have a 400m+ plateau:

    1. 225 West 57th Street, 472m (or 381m - remains to be seen)
    2. 432 Park Avenue, 426m
    3. 1WTC, 417m (541m - antenna)
    4. 2WTC,...

    If you manage to stay away from the 1WTC threads, you can have a good time. Lots of smart and talented folks over there. I think both forums have finally grown up.

    I like the shape (and the height) of the tower, but the cladding looks a bit tacky.

    The latest jump brings us up to 1244 feet, slightly above the 100th floor. So it hasn't surpassed the ESB (1250 feet) yet. Exactly 129 feet to go till parapet height (1373 - 1244).

    The tower has potential air rights up to 1700 feet. Recent DOB filings only apply for the small store by the actual tower. A DOB contruction permit for 432 Park Ave hasn't been filed yet.

    Yes, that is clear to me. Those times "build it and they'll come" are over- noone wants an empty tower, as glorious as it might be.

    Yes, apart from 1WTC this tower is essential to the complex. 4WTC with its minimalistic design is a filler and 3WTC with its latest redesign and height reduction will be another 08/15 tower. So it's...

    15039

    Will this tower really have a lighting scheme as shown in the render or is it just the architect highlighting its position in the skyline?
