    First of all, remember this building is a heavyweight. At the Eighth floor, where the tower first separates from the base, the floor dimensions are something like 220 feet (along 42nd street) by 180...

    it stands for "Not In My BackYard"

    generally it means those who are anti-development...even good development. Many of them seem not to have their facts straight and some others are hiding an...

    I think its a shame its both a dull design and short. This location could've handled something much taller and more significant. NIMBY's in that area are real losers. They complain about the noise...

    that's impressive. Taller than American international. If built today it would be the third tallest building in the city. Odds are that it will be fifth of sixth by the time its built though. I'm...

    Its a shame that the Empire State Development corp won't let them build a 1million sq ft tower on this site. 720,000 just isnt all that significant. This is 42nd street after all. I hate to say it,...

    You're right JMGarcia. The floorplates on this building are only ~23,000 sq. ft. if I remember correctly, a bit more at the top and less at the bottom. To add, say another 12 floors would necessitate...

    It would be awesome if they had William Daniels doing naration ("Yes, Michael?").

    Well, that's not its best angle to be sure: It highlights just how close the building is to the monstrosity nextdoor. From many angles it simply isnt tall enough to stand out and be as independent as...

    More Pics! Man someone needs to put up a few more webcams around Times Square. When I go home in December I'll take a bunch for everyone's viewing pleasure. Pittsburgh's contruction scene just isnt...

    This is assuming BoA doesn't buy out the Dursts' share after construction is complete, which is a very real possibility if the bank continues to expand in NYC. Being the complete owner of the most...

    yea.
    I'm glad we finally have some solid numbers for this building.
    45 stories, 750 feet isn't bad. At 2 million feet its gonna be bulky as hell though.

    Hi there,

    I haven't posted in a while, but I've been hoping for update pics on this thread and I haven't seen too many recent ones. Believe it or not my mom has reported more on the progress of...

    Hi everybody!

    I'm a long time time reader first-time poster. I passed by the site today and noticed that the first steel beams have been anchored to the concrete blocks in the foundation! This...
