    The brain-dead stewardess is at it again. You don't know where I live and where I own property. What an idiot.

    I suspect that Stache is a regular viewer of Lifetime, Nancy Grace, etc.

    Is this project stalled? It seems to be moving at a snail's pace for a month or two now.

    Does it have to do with the financing or lack thereof?

    I'm puzzled as to why you guys are calling NYC "irrelevant" in the skyscraper world, as well.

    There are two vertically supreme cities, and I stress the world "city." New York and Hong Kong. Dubai doesn't count, because it's not a city.

    Moreover, upon the completion of One 57 and the WTC complex, here are the stats (HK currently has 0 1,000 U/C):

    # of 1,000-foot towers by spire:
    NYC= 9 (One WTC, ESB, Two WTC, Three WTC, BoA, 4TS, Chrysler, NYT, One 57)
    HK= 7 ( ICC, 2IFC, Central Plaza, BoChina, The Center, Nina, One Island East)

    # of 1,000-foot towers by roof:
    NYC= 5 (One WTC, ESB, Two WTC, Three WTC, One 57)
    HK= 5 (ICC, 2IFC, Central Plaza, BoChina, Nina)


    Furthermore, NYC has the following that are likely to rise:
    Tower Verre- 1,050
    GiraSole- 1,060
    Manhattan West- 1,216
    15 Penn Plaza- 1,216
    225 West 57th- over 1,000
    Drake site- over 1,000
    Hudson Place- 1,300
    Hudson Place- 1,080

    That's not to mention NYC has unrivaled depth in the 600-footer and 700-footer department. NYC is also at or near the top in terms of 800 and 900-footers, as well.


    When the WTC and One 57 are complete, NYC is back at the top.

    No, it's not stalled. Extell is loaded, and they've also got some oil well-money investors.

    You live in Westchester. If you owned property in Manhattan we would have heard ALL ABOUT IT.

    Who made the NYC is irrelevant statement?
    We know it's not, even the most pessimistic members know deep inside.

    Nice thread bump. We haven't had a good old "stat" off in ages.

    Extell lands loan for tallest residential tower

    July 29, 2011 2:09 p.m.

    Extell Development Co. has reached a deal to secure a $700 million construction loan from Bank of America Corp. for its already-rising skyscraper on West 57th Street, said sources close to the transaction.
    Extell broke ground early last year without a loan for what will be the tallest residential building in the city, a 1,005-foot tower across from Carnegie Hall. The property will include a Park Hyatt Hotel and about 136 high-end apartments. The city's tallest residential property is currently New York by Gehry, which is downtown on Spruce Street. It is 870 feet tall.
    In an interview with Crain's in April 2010, Extell President Gary Barnett said he believed New York's economy was picking up (Digital subscription required), so the time was right to start building again. He insisted he would eventually secure a loan for the West 57th Street project because of its exceptional location, world-class amenities, and a design by noted French architect Christian de Portzamparc.
    “It is going to be a gift to New York,” Mr. Barnett said at the time.
    Mr. Barnett couldn't be reached for comment, and a Bank of America spokeswoman declined to comment.
    Bank of America is expected to syndicate the loan for the $1.3 billion project to other institutions, including Sovereign Bank. The sizeable loan reflects what has been an improving market for real estate projects in New York as well as Mr. Barnett's development prowess. He is one of the city's most prolific developers.
    Last year, Extell won approval to build a 3.1-million-square-foot mixed-use project known as Riverside Center on the Upper West Side. The project includes 2,500 apartments, retail space and a school in five high-rise towers.

    Here's a few from this afternoon. It's been going slow because of the solid walls. Not sure what's up with that. Mechanicals? Anyway, I've not seen a thread for 225w57, but a special someone here will appreciate a few of these...
