    As per plans that Extell filed today, this building will be 953 feet tall.

    See below:

    P.S.: Costas is listed as the architect. Hopefully, he is just the architect of record and de Portzamparc is the true architect.

    Excellent height. Hopefully this gets approved. I know Extell is fairly liquid, I wonder if he'll be able to get financing for this.

    I'll bet he can finance this.

    He seems to have connections to huge sources of money.

    I'd gladly look over his alleged connections if it allows him to build a 950 foot Chrisitan de Portzamparc tower.

    At 1.6 msf and 953 ft, it'll be chunky.

    To use a few others as comparison, Gehry's Beekman is 867 ft at 1.1 msf and Silverstein's 99 Church is 912 ft at around 600K sf.

    I merely glanced at the DOB entry posted above, but as per Paragraph 8, isn't it supposed to be 800,334 sq.ft.?

    It's meaningful and grammatical either way. I was looking for your meaning, not correcting your grammar.

    I'm confused by the new format of those permits. Section 12 shows 1.6 msf. So which is the correct square footage?

    Default 57th/Carnegie Hall To Be Shit On

    Hey guys,

    Get ready for 1,000 feet of garbage on 57th! That's right, Gary Barnett (burn his name into your brain and let it live in infamy) is ordering a COSTAS SPECIAL.

    Extell Files Plans for Mammoth Midtown Tower
    By Dana Rubinstein

    Extell's Gary Barnett sure is keeping himself busy.

    Last week, he disseminated nothing less than a manifesto to rescue the economy, and today, he filed plans with the Buildings Department for an 830,000-square-foot, Costas Kondylis-designed tower for the empty crater at 157 West 57th Street.

    George Arzt, Extell's spokesman, said the tower would contain a hotel and a residential complex. If Extell's timing is right, the building might top off just as the economy begins its recovery, at some unknown and, frankly, unfathomable point in the future.

    The New York Post's Steve Cuozzo first got wind of the hotel portion of the plans in December, by way, oddly enough, of a Web site belonging to Aegis Security Design, which, Mr. Cuozzo reported, "claims the tower diagonally across from Carnegie Hall will house a '5-star' Park Hyatt Hotel, stores and luxury condos."

    The source for that story was an odd one because, as Mr. Cuozzo pointed out, "Aren't security firms supposed to keep secrets secure?"

    Apparently, Extell agreed. Mr. Arzt tells us Aegis had signed a confidentiality agreement with the developer, and has since been axed.

    Default Apologies to LL

    Sorry, LL, didn't see you scooped me by a few days! Saw the unveiling of Costas just now and assumed it was a hot piece of news -- clearly you were on top of it last week!
