    It's in what I would call Clinton (maybe Chelsea)... not the best area but getting better. The height is 615ft at 58 stories according to Emporis. As of now it is still a proposal (i.e. construction is not about to begin).

    This building is not in Clinton or Chelsea.

    The building is off Herald Square and the neighborhood is referred to as the garmet district or chelsea heights...

    These are new renderings of the tower:


    from Fox & Fowle Architects, P.C. :


    West 31st Street Residential Tower
    New York, New York
    Client: Durst Organization / Sidney Fetner Associates
    Completion: 2005


    As the design architects for this 580,00 square foot tower, the firm is elegantly resolving varying programs and identities. Adjacent to the St. Francis of Assisi Friary, the mixed-use project includes an extension of offices, chapel, library, and housing for the friars at the base. The building includes a new headquarters for the American Cancer Society and the Hope Lodge treatment center and hospice. The four story facade on 32nd Street incorporates an expansive glass and shadow box curtain wall to give the Society its own strong identity. Above the base, the tower consists of 460 units of luxury housing.

    615' is the DOB's height of the building to the top floor. To the roof it's 642 feet.

    Any updates on this project? I've seen its status as "under construction" at a couple different sites. Sorry for bumping, if that offends anyone, but it's been 6 months and I feel like we've all forgotten about this project.

    I was by a week or two ago. The hole is in the ground. It will start rising this summer.

    Looks like it'll be a nice building once it goes up.

    Definitely some height in a low / mid-rise area.

    Walked by the site today, and didn't even know it at first. Then I looked over and saw machinery at work. Site preparation is underway. Pictures taken from 32nd street.
