    lol, that area might not seem like much to all of you, but to a small town person yearning to live in an urban enviroment (like me ), that looks like paradise!

    The post is a little confusing, but he said that he corrected the height estimations on the rendering. Someone else, using the green line as a 630 ft reference, estimated the building height to be 719. The red line is the adjusted 630 ft reference, making the building approx 900 ft.

    it is always possible that the rendering pic, above, is intentionally underrepresenting the building's height; since, NIMBY B.S. about blocking out the last remaing bit of sun, from Bryant Part, could certainly spark some kinda "movement."

    The site is on the western edge of Bryant Park, so it would only be well past office hours before the building's shadow encroaches on it.

    That building is pretty hot, has a modernish look to it, but thats besides my question...does any one know when constuction will initiate? I can wait to see that in the sky....Just think about it, i mean, lately (last few years) the major construction boom has been predominately in Asia..China, Korea, Japan, ect., but with the new structures and awsome plans in the making (olympic village, Bloomberg, bank of America Tower, the nets staduim, the prospects in BK, the new towers in Downtown; ie, 7 WTC, the WTC complex, and the new Ratner tower, this towe, and many other new tall structures will, i think, show New York City's will to survive, even if we are the victims of terrorist attacks, ect. I'm really happy about all of this! :lol: , but yea, going back to my main question...any one come across any dates for construction and or completion? Thanks

    I liked the original rendering, but this one is great as well. Any # of stories quoted?

    Off today, just waiting for tonight's festivities - so I figured it out.

    The street grid points to the NE by 30 degrees. The BoA site is NW of the park, and 42 st at 300 degrees. Using data from US Naval Observatory for June 22, the sun sets at 08:30 at 302 degrees, right along 42 st - which means the building will never cast a shadow on the park.

    But I was never too good at cipherin', so I think you should take your new camera to the park next June and get us some shadow studies.

    For some reason skyscrapers.com now lists it as "Never Built."
