Let's say, conservatively, a ~1500 ft. tower has 80 floors -- that's an average floorplate of 3750 sq. ft. Even 111 W. 57th isn't that skinny.

During the nineties there were several proposals that were significantly taller than the original towers downtown. l believe Trump had a proposal in the Wall street area.

I agree!

Now that we kind of gotten the Nordstrom out of the way, 22 Thames and the $3.2 B Hudson Spire has moved up on my list as highly anticipated to see what is in store. I think both of these projects could be pretty special.

22 Thames has 360 k sf vs Steinway's' 315 k sf. A taller Steinway like tower is possible and would be ultra exclusive for downtown. Maybe there are some extra air right to be had as well?

Another scenario that had been brought up by Lord Wellesly is that Chetrit owns an adjacent site and a possible partnership could be made to combine and build a taller / heftier tower.

Interesting. Had to look it up. Credits to Hudson11 in the fantastic Unbuilt New York thread: the NYSE (or not, see curbed thread below) tower, 1WTCs big brother at 1792 feet to the roof:

I would have loved that!! I also think that would have looked good in midtown. For example, at the Vanderbilt site.

So this one has the potential to go 400m+?

Excuse me if this sounds stupid, but why do the renders keep showing a glass box with a thin stripe? That's not how the tower is going to look, is it?

Render got changed due to new ownership from Fisher Bros. and Steven Witkoff to Shvo. The new design hasn't been announced.

Whew. I had a feeling this tower was to change its design with the height increase.

God knows we've had enough fun with the puns on his last name but in a way I'm glad he took over buying the property because while tasteful and nice enough the old design was certainly no Shvo stopper!
