    This project is real. There's lots of activity going on behind the scenes.

    In Steven Holl latest book of current works, there is a thumbnail rendering of this building with the skyline from NJ, in the project appendix. Hopefully larger renderings will be released soon.

    Gehry wishes he had ever designed a skyscraper as simple and elegant as Holl's proposal for this site.
    Certainly not Miss Brooklyn. Even I could come up with something better than that messy pile.

    Extell Closes on 10th Avenue Parcel for Holl's Wacky Tower


    by Eliot Brown Published: November 9, 2007


    Maverick developer Gary Barnett and his Extell Development Company have closed on a sliver of Port Authority-owned land at 31st Street and 10th Avenue for about $17 million, property records show. The 7,500-square-foot piece of land was the final parcel needed by Extell in preparation for its planned 61-story, 780,000-square-foot mixed-use tower set to rise, as the company had been assembling a lot around a former Stuart Dean-owned building for years.

    The developers have been reticent to release any renderings of their skinny tower, though their offbeat architect, Steven Holl, revealed a decidedly un-detailed, blurry image of the wavy structure on the Charlie Rose show earlier this year, providing fodder for the blogosphere.

    The planned tower, which could connect to the High Line viaduct-turned-parkland, sits just across the street from the Western rail yards where Extell has submitted a bid to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to develop the 26-acre site.

    While designs of the bids have yet to be shown to the public, perhaps Extell is planning something to match the 31st Street tower. Their architect for the massive complex: Steven Holl.

    DOB has issued both an Excavation PERMIT (10.23.07):
    EXCAVATE SITE IN PREPERATION FOR NEW BUILDING # AS PER PLANS FILED.
    Stories; 61
    Height: 699
    and Approved the Plans for Underpinning / Shoring for the site (10.18.07):

    Awesome news!

    But now I'm curious as to with the arrival of high rents where the trendy new clubbing district will move, I'm guessing this might be the first time it will move to Queens or Brooklyn.

    Looks like the height has been reduced by a whopping 75 feet! So much for making a bold statement.

    I don't think that number is right. Notice the floors didn't change.

    Heights don't just randomly go up and down. You'll notice with most DOB permits that the heights are all over the map. There must be at least a half dozen heights listed for the Gehry project on Beekman Street.

    I'm guessing this is a mistake, or the number is the allowable height and square footage under a certain zoning scenario (often, permits are issued for the allowable size under a current framework, rather than the final framework once all air rights and zoning allowances have been finalized).

    The NEW BUILDING PERMIT (Pre-Filed 9.07.07; Plan Exam Disapproved @ 10.05.07) shows:

    Stories: 61
    Height: 774
    Units: 153

    Go figure ...

    Here is the High Hybrid Tower cropped out of Holl's proposal for Hudson Yards. It is the first I've seen of the entire massing. Even if Extell Development is not chosen for Hudson yards, it seems that at least this piece will be built.

    This one will definitely get built. Extell has developments all over Manhattan and the west side.

    The chiseled base looks sexy in the second pic. The flat top, though, could use some rework.
