    Walked by yesterday. This is out of the ground. Second floor is complete. Providing we stay away from freezing temps, this is likely to rise quickly as it doesn't have huge floor plates.

    On the West Side, probably. It's "only" about 600 feet high.

    This will be the tallest building this far west of Eighth Avenue. Farther down the street construction has begun on:

    625 West 42nd Street
    621-627 West 42nd Street
    46 stories 478 feet
    Costas Kondylis & Partners
    518,416 Sq. Ft. 478 units
    Under Construction 2004-2006

    519 West 42nd Street
    519/517-521 West 42nd Street
    19 stories 216 feet
    H. Thomas O'Hara Architects
    Dev-Senior Living Options Inc.
    Residential Rental
    94,652 72 units
    Under Construction 2004-Late 2005/2006

    I hope Silverstein gets to build his River Place II which is 53 stories and ~550 feet. Therefore the 664 foot hotel could maybe rise over the convention center. There are 5 other sites slated for high-rises on West 42nd also.

    On a sidenote I know of 154 buildings U/C over 120 feet and since 1999 about 200 have been built in NYC.

    Damn that ugly Post Office building next door. If the gov't owns it, they should sell it for development and keep the first 4 floors of the new development for themselves.

    Maybe its air-rights were purchased for this development.

    The glass makes this building, not a bad one.

    The 42nd Street facade looks pretty good.
