thats a tall building near Woolworth.
9-12 Barclay Street
Directors' Guild of America Tower
800 Sixth Avenue
There are many more renderings of each one and other projects at the site (pdf's). I just don't want to get in trouble with Fotki again.

Yeah, any chance of that getting built?
The Barclay one is nasty
Is there any word on the DGA tower?
Where is the DGA tower supposed to be built ?
It's an interesting design, but the style is that of Houston or Seattle during the 80s.
How tall is the DGA Tower supposed to be? *And where is it?
I kinda like the Barclay one. But the skin stinks. Directors' Guild of America Tower *is really cool.

I like them all! *Build, build, build! *
Are these renderings of proposed buildings? Or are some of these buildings ones that "never happened"? *I haven't heard of the Director's Guild proposal. *Is that something that is currently on the table?
I hope 9-12 Barclay Street never gets built.
I know the Directors' Guild of America as a theatre on w. 57th near 6th. Haven't been by there in months though.
9-12 Barclay should be built since it's residential. I counted 51 visible floors and probably about 10-15 floors are hidden and then the glass on top would make it around 70 stories. Also in the rendering the bldg. is behind Woolworth making it look smaller...I'm guess they're around the same height.
800 Sixth Avenue should start by the end of this year.
From the NYT:
"The Adell family was an early advocate of transition to residential use in the area, where it assembled three parcels and was instrumental in its rezoning. Matthew G. Adell, president of Adell, said he hoped to start construction by the end of the year on a rental building with up to 270 units on the third site, between 27th and 28th Streets, which his company will develop alone."
Here's the article on the Directors' Guild building that was posted awhile back. I counted about 50 floors though.
DIRECTORS GUILD TO BE LEVELED
By BRADEN KEIL *(NEW YORK POST)
February 14, 2002 -- The Directors Guild of America building is heading in a different direction: down.
Sources say the building at 110 W. 57th St. will be sold to the Athena Group, a developer of prime residential real estate, and will be demolished to make way for a 40-story mixed-use, full-service building.
Plans could include as many as 120 high-end condos, priced below $900 per square foot, and 100,000 square feet of commercial space.
"It is an area that is prime for residential use," says a broker familiar with the area.
"There are many restaurants; the park is just a short distance. You have The Park Imperial going up nearby, as well as the AOL Time Warner Center a few blocks from there."
The Athena Group, headed by Alfred Taubman's son-in-law, Louis Dubin, has already built full-floor condos at 838 Fifth Ave. and is now developing 25 to 30 condominiums at the new Liberty Building between 64th and 65th streets off Central Park West.
The units, designed by architect Costas Kondylis, will go for $1.5 million to more than $10 million.
The project also includes the addition of three to four more floors above the existing structure and creation of an interior courtyard.
Dubin wouldn't comment on the Directors Guild Building deal.

The rendering of DGA has over 50 floors.
I counted 51 floors. *Perhaps they are lowballing the number for the press in order to avoid any noise from NIMBY's.
Is the DGA building confirmed??
Looks to be quite tall.
