Thread: One Beacon Court a.k.a. Bloomberg Tower - 151 East 58th @ Lexington - by Cesar Pelli

    Above 850 ft is pretty vague.
    Could it be possible that they still have several options including a taller than TWT ?

    Bloomberg is far more reliable, afterall I dont foresee a skyscrapers.com skyscraper any time soon, as Bloomberg has for its reputation, it is by far the better source.

    The spire of the Chrysler Building was a secret until they erected it - could the Bloomberg tower surprise us?

    Not a chance.

    Christian, that was brutal.
    Yes, NYatKNIGHT, it's a possibility.

    I laughed when I read it - Chris is always good for instantly deflating any delusions.

    Not mine.
    He's not as brutal as he thinks he is.

    And what am I the eternal optimist?

    If 850 feet is the latest figure, than it must be. Is this wishful thinking, yup.

    hmmm...we'll just have to wait until 2005, because the story never ends at Alexander's.

    Since we are all more or less clueless all delusions may be freely entertained!

    "could the Bloomberg tower surprise us?"

    Well, let me think of another suprize Bloomie threw our way.......

    That's it! They will secretly erect a 200' cigarette spire on top to taunt us!!

    We may have our answers sooner than you think. *As of last Thursday (last time I passed by the building) it had 14 floors. *I can see this thing penetrating the skyline this year...
    And yes, I am inclined to believe that they will max out the height over and above TWT. *It just makes economic sense to do so.

    The skyline would be perfectly balanced if it matched exactly the height of Citigroup.
    Another wild dream.

    I love the flat crown of the Bloomberg Tower, litteraly its cool as it looks like an ice cube . It will go great with the "white" cutoff at Citicorp.
