    Default MoMA Expansion - Tower Verre - by Jean Nouvel

    We appear to have lost the MoMA's Proposed Expansion - Radical 75 Storey Tower - by Jean Nouvel thread, too .


    New Renderings Revealed for Jean Nouvel's MoMA Tower


    by Sara Polsky





    The most recent redesign of Towe Verre, Jean Nouvel's MoMA tower, calls for a shorter building than originally planned, at 1,050 feet and 78 stories. The architectural drawings for the redesigned tower came to light in August; now, New York YIMBY spots some fresh renderings on the website of architects Adamson Associates. The archibabble explains: "The design features a faceted exterior that tapers to a set of three distinct asymmetrical crystalline peaks at the apex of the tower – each peak varying in height and shape." Inside, there will be 100 hotel rooms, 480,000 square feet of residential space, and 52,000 square feet of MoMA expansion.

    As New York YIMBY points out, older renderings for the project can still be found on developer Hines' project page.

    Here's one:

    New Views at Nouvelís Tower Verre

    Even after it was lopped off in 2009, Jean Nouvelís Tower Verre, aka the MoMA Tower, still remains one of New York Cityís tallest planned residential towers, sited adjacent to MoMAís headquarters on West 53rd Street. After fights with the neighbors, Nouvelís tower has been keeping a low profile, but Curbed (via NY YIMBY) has spotted a few new renderings of the tower at Adamson Associates Architects, the architects of record for the project. While the exterior changes are minor, fans of Tod Williams and Billie Tsienís now empty American Folk Art Museum can breathe a sigh of relief, for now, as the small, bronze-clad structure remains standing in the rendered views. Also of interest are a couple new renderings of the buildingís interior spaces.

    I just hope that this tower is built. It's amazing that an idiotic looking tower like 432 Park was financed, and this masterpiece has yet to be.

    According to Edward, "When a thread is deleted it's either "soft delete" when moderator can see it and restore and "physical" when it's getting wiped out. vBulletin does not provide a way to restore just one thread."

    We also lost the Plan to Rezone Midtown thread, replaced by Midtown / Midtown East Rezoning Plan

    Apparently caused during en masse spam thread eradication.

    With the Dreck going up on 57th street, they should restore this tower to full height. Otherwise the Dreck will stick out like a sore thumb.

    Wow! This is great news. Since Irish In NYC seems to have inside/industry info, perhaps he can confirm if this is actually getting built or if Hines' permit was expiring and it simply needed to refile for future purposes.7

    Not if it affects in any way the 'peaceful, light infused 1940s streetwall' that UberNIMBY Michael Gross cherishes so much!
