I agree, the title of this thread with 1550 ft is already making me cringe.

I know Gary said in the past that he would not cheat in height with the use of a spire or crown but with this news I really hope he does.

As per JamesDL the crown will add 64ft in additional height. I think they could do better adding more height with a crown.

A part of me hopes JamesDL is an agent for Gary to spread disinformation about the height while all other info provided is legit so when they officially unveil the design we are all going to be dumbfounded with a height increase to 1,700ft. Wishful thinking... you think??

I mean JamesDL could mean James Down Low right?? Meaning he is not 100%forthcoming with his info?? Aww, I'm just having fun and his info all makes sense from info that we have. Maybe I'm just in denial about the height. lol

Dark green can look pretty good.

Thanks for those Pics! I am really warming up to the prospect of a green cladding.

So does this mean Extell will not have to excavate far deep down into the bed rock since this will only end up being 1,200 + ft?

Park Ave Plaza and Tower 49 are two towers with nice green glass.

Who is this guy? How do we know he's credible? I mean for all we know he could be telling the truth, or could be just trolling us. There's no way we can know until the things that are supposed to happen happen.

Initially, when I joined in SSC, and was transfigured hopeless by no news ever on this tower, I was thinking of doing something like this. I was just restless and wanted to, at the least, pick a topic for conversation and et cet era... Maybe, the height increased to 1700 or the render would be out by the end of one particular month and blah blah blah....

I seriously hope, we're being catapaulted backwards for a mighty jump of rejoice...

Edit : I just realised whenever there was any edit in the details, we always had news. Like we had news on the size of the lot, the depth of the foundation and all other stuffs. If height reduction was easily anything so true, there would, of course, be some news. I think I can still expect 1550. I cannot give up until, there is a concrete source to the statement.

The same day he posted that information there was an article above his post speaking about the tower and a few other details about it being the tallest other than one world trade centers antenna, and the 1550 ft figure was still there. Whther this new guy is true or not, i find it odd that his first post here would be about that, not even posted on wiredny or ssp.

Green glass... it's got me worried!

I was just in Bowling Green a few days ago and remarked on how ugly 2 Broadway is.



It brought back bad flashbacks of the Spruce Tree Center in St. Paul, MN near where I went to school.

If this rumour would come true, I am just curious what "usafarid" should be thinking right now?

The rumor was that the tower was going to be 1550 feet... 1250 sounds more realistic.

I for one believe him and don't think we're getting trolled just because I don't think 1550 or more is realistic for NYC now. I wouldn't get my hopes up, they always said they may forgo the 1550 feet.

Maybe 1550 feet is a bit too much for this?

For those who get woodies over height, my friend who's an architect stated that this is not the project she was referring to that will be released in Sept. and that her project is taller than 1,250'.

It may be the rumoured proposal by SHoP.
