    58 Storeys? Wow, that is a tall building on a relatively small footprint. Does that exceed the heights of the McGraw HIll Building or Ivey Tower?

    I believe that there is a rendering of this building in the Sunday, Sept. 12, 2004 edition of the NY Times Magazine in the real estate section. It's described as being a 60 story tower. It's blue/grey glass and looks nice (but not spectacular). Can anyone scan the photo?

    The Orion:



    Similar to the 500 Park Avenue Tower only with no Pepsi Building to relate to.

    Copy and paste url.

    That's a sucky design. Looks like something from the mid eighties. Of course the quality of the photo might be misleading, dunno.

    That's pretty bad.

    I hope that they refurbish the facade of the post office next to this site. Developers often refurbish small, rundown buildings that are next to their sites. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    The rendering makes it look a lot bulkier than the lot-size would imply. It is a very narrow and small for print for 62 storeys.

    Probably because it's showing it from the through-block side. If the glass is done as rendered I think it will be okay. Def. better than all the other residential buildings on the street.

    There's already a crane up at the site.
