I like this building. New York is truly lacking in supertalls.

Excellent project. Hope to see this one built. New York could really use another supertall. This thread needs the correct title format though.

At first glance I thought there may be a subtle homage to WTC, then the bird's eye view made me think of the Times.

Given how ambitious this project is, I think they should be asked to go back to the drawing board and come up with something truly iconic. If it was 700 feet, I'd say it's a nice additon. But at the proposed height, it will contribute to how we all see NYC in the future... so let's do better.

How do you say that?

In addition to the Empire State Building, there are two buildings under construction whose roofs -- not spires -- exceed 1,300 feet (i.e., WTC 1 and 2), one building whose roof exceeds 1,150 feet (i.e., WTC 3), one whose roof exceeds 1,000 feet (i.e., WTC 4), and one whose roof is about 950 feet (i.e., B of A). In addition, the Chrysler's roof -- not the spire -- is about 950 feet, and the roofs on 40 Wall and 80 Pine Exceed 900 feet.

Moreover, several 1,000+ foot buildings are planned around Penn Station and MSG.

Apparently, this building has been planned for quite some time.

From the NY Post's November 9, 2005 edition:


By LOIS WEISS
November 9, 2005

Joseph Moinian is another West Side fan who is putting his money where his mouth is.

We hear Moinian contracted to buy yet another Verizon building on the east side of 11th Ave. opposite Javits.

This is one of the area's four super corners, where sources say he intends to construct a soaring, 1.5 million-foot mixed-use tower that will include retail, hotel, offices and residences.

The 47,000-foot site at 555 W. 34th St. is next door to his Infinity Court apartments.

David Noonan and Jimmy Kuhn of Newmark handled the brokerage, just as they did for Moinian's Verizon purchase on 11th Ave. between 42nd and 43rd Streets.

Moinian is working there on a design for another 1.5 million square footer, next to the Costas Kondylis-designed apartment building he bought as plans from Jules Demchik and which is currently rising skyward.

What city has more than that?

Also, don't forget the scores of buildings between 700 and 900 feet. Only HK matches NY in that regard.
