That was before this went back to the drawing board several months ago.

Well, James was right what we would get some renderings by the end of the month. And he did mention that the project went back to the drawingboards. He said that he indeed had the right info only it was outdated.

Extell’s latest towering erection on West 57th Street is set to be revealed tonight at a last minute meeting of the Landmarks Committee of Community Board #5 more than fifty blocks away from the neighborhood surrounding the proposed development (which is set to include a branch of the Nordstrom department store in its base and a hotel and condos for the wealthy above).

I'm positive that means reveal renderings, height.

Any predictions for the tower top before we get the renders?

Im hoping for some kind of colour blend as it reaches the top, maybe from silver into blue or gold, not a harsh colour change but a really smooth transition.

I'm fine with a light silver. I don't like green and One57 is already blue so a different color would be good here.

I'm more concerned about the height. If this breaks 500m I'll be in bliss.
