Here's the view through the 57th St fence this morning (July 27, 2014).

Most of the excavation of the southern wall is done, and the curvy bits are looking nice (click the pic for a better view):

New Renders, from Curbed:





As expected, it's fairly basic, as compared with the older renders. Although if I'm being honest, the one with all the funky angles was too weird for my tastes.

this one is too boring for my taste, at least the previous one had interesting features. At least it's not like we expected anything better.

To be honest, after what happened with the school, I'm pretty happy with this design.

Meh! It is what is... Nothing special but I'll take anything new being built in the East side of midtown. This tower IMO will not be marketed for ultra luxury that's for sure.

I came to expect a Kaufman-esque box so this design takes hopes up a notch...a tiny notch.

the original design was just amazing, a pity they changed it. Though the new isn't bad, just a bit boring.

Looks like the rendering on the WIP sign has been revised - going for something a bit more 'deconstructivist', I guess

Huh. Not dissimilar to the cutouts on 7 Bryant Park. Not exactly groundbreaking, but it's still attractive, and that feature will be distinct enough that you'll recognize it as "that building" when looking out into the sea of high-rises.

Depending on the execution and the cladding, this could be a low-key gem for Midtown East.
