Yes it does, the taller and thinner 225 is the better 432 and midtown in general looks. Go high 225!

No, NIMBYs won't be able to kill this. Extell has acquired all the necessary air rights to build this tower. Zero truth behind that.

OMG! That is beautiful. 432 Park actually looks amazing! Along with Tower Verre and One57. i kind of hope 225 West is similar to that but thats only a massing model...

The park will get a very interesting new skyline. It's even more interesting considering that it is in fact composed only of residentials (Hudson Yards isn't very visible)

It deserves to be shown at the top of this page...

This is amazing. It would be great if all these projects are built. And if 225 is as high as shown in the image... Congratulations for the work!

It's the little tiny spire poking out from behind that building to the left of the Verre.

Probably one of these 2 was copied in. Regardless, it will be another great supertall with an amazing view over Central Park.

2 more meters and this tower would have been taller than the Empire States Building.. Oh well.. I guess they weren't interested in height..

There is so far no render so the height will most probably be different

There is no final height, it is only said it will be "more than 1250 feet"

It has air rights up into the 1400 range, so it could be NYC's highest roof.

EDIT: There are no air rights, the building can be as tall as the developer wants, it's possible it could go over 1400 one article stated because this building may compete in height with 420 park ave.

Oh wow, i didn't know that!! So I'm guessing they will try to compete in "height" with 432 Park Avenue, and thus becoming the Tallest building in NYC or perhaps the country, since 1WTC would no longer be the tallest in the nation..
