    I got this one confused with the Bryant Park Tower 10 blocks up the street that also recently got revived.

    479ft for this seems a little underwhelming. Aren't the continental and beatrice on either side of this notably taller?

    More info, I figured they'd cut the hotel out.

    It appears as though construction is about to commence on this one. They've added a trailer on the site and have extended the walls to the street blocking the sidewalk. Any word on timing?

    This tower is crap. Since Durst hit a home run with the Pyramid, I
    Thought he was committed to great towers .... Until this design was revealed.

    I meant to comment on this guy. There's construction equipment on site and all the walls, as mentioned above, have been moved. The rendering on site looks glassy. Not so different from the Continental 2 blocks north, but with a larger base since it's the whole block. I mean, it looks better then most of the towers on 6th ave. Not sure what else one would expect from it. The first good tower on the block is basically 7BP.

    That stretch of Sixth is now as deadly dull as parts of Third Avenue above 42nd.
