I guess we won't see any official renderings until after New Years.

I mean if it's taking this long and let's say we end up getting the official render in March, you would think they decided to go with a whole new redesign from the teaser we all had seen??

Who knows. As far as I know, they still don't have a construction loan.

This building should be the height king of NYC for some time to come, so I'll post this chart here. It's incomplete, and some of the info conflicts depending on the source, but some might find it interesting.

Thanks for the updates!
BTW, it is Tower Verre, not Torre Verre...

Wow, this is great! I must say, though, that a few of those numbers are slightly off according to the CTBUH records. I'd check the heights and square
footage of 2WTC, 3WTC, and 8 Spruce on their website.

Yes, there are conflicting numbers in some cases, so I have to choose one. Hopefully I'll be able to make it more accurate over time, and add other buildings.

If you look closely you will find that there are many buildings that aren't built yet, like 2WTC. I think this is a prediction of what New York will look like in the future.

Anyone want to hazard a guess on when we'll see final renders?

A month? Two months? A year?

I've not been keeping track on this thing but it seems to have been on the cusp of go time for ages.

Probably not until they have a construction loan, which may take some time to finalize.

It's been awfully quiet since those massing models were shown to the public. Maybe they are in the process of redesigning the tower ... one can only hope.

Just FYI: Thanks to the German Wiki page on New York skyscrapers which I update on a daily basis (so I can keep track), I get the following figures (completed, u/c, in prep and proposed towers which at least have a thread and reliable info):

200m+: 111 (no joke!!)
200 - 300m: 88
300m+: 23
300 - 400m: 15
400m+: 8
400 - 500m: 7
500m+: 1

New York, New York!
