I walked by on the 4th of August. Demolition clearly is proceeding. That being said, I assume that Extell is in no rush until it finalizes a loan.

A render or the construction pictures?

Redesigned?? From what? To my knowledge there has not been a design released to the public from AS+GG.

Unless you mean from your source AS+GG had in fact privately unveiled a design to the developer and Nordstrom and they requested AS+GG to go back to the drawing board??

In answer to both of your questions: No, I have no clue what the final height will be, and I imagine AS+GG are tweaking their original design. Hopefully making it taller.

rool:

I bet you the re-design has to do with the purchase Extell made a couple weeks ago. The purchase of that narrow Beethoven Piano shop located behind that supermarket being currently being razed!

I am positive that purchase is allowing Barnett to go even more higher while redesigning it by incorporating that newly purchased space into the base of the tower.

I wonder if Extell can buy some air rights from the Art Students League building, a landmarked structure between the Osborne and the 225 W 57th plot:




Another look at Beethoven Pianos on 58th, from a while back:

This video is already breathtaking. I can't wait to see how it changes in a few years.

He's being sarcastic. A seemingly random yet accurate number that's over 2,000? Dead giveaway he was messing with usafarid.
