These towers are being built as a result of the simple fact that the world's global rich want to live here. NYC is amazing!

That is just huge.

These towers are being built because the world economy is unstable and ny is considered a safe haven for the wealthy to put their money.

I think they meant that it will be the tallest in NYC including 432 Park. I mean, these are top class developers. You don't get to be a top class developer without knowing everything that is going on in the neighbourhood

Might as well shoot for 450m. That could make it North America's tallest building if the most current version of the WTC antenna is erected.

The lot where 225 will rise is visible in this photo. It's just west of the big, white, pre-war tower. The view from Central Park will be amazing in a few years with One57, Torre Verre, 225, and 432 Park. Not to mention, who knows how tall 220 CPS will be?

danger!!

Herzog meuron project is in great danger or is even dead since the Nordstroom is now fully financial involved in this project .
"The Nordstroom will be involved in the choice of the architect"
say goodbay to herzog meuron and great architecture.

If this tower beat the Willis Tower by roof height it will be great, even if 1 WTC's spire is still higher.

From what I know it is now for sure that 1WTC will get an antenna, not a spire, so if this is taller than 432 Park, it will be at least tallest in the city if not tallest in the hemisphere even by CTBUH's official height measurement.

If this building was as tall as on that picture, it would be great, but now, if it will be taller it will be much better.

architect change

Probably Herzog and meuron is not more the architect fo this project :
"The department store will buy the floors as a commercial condominium, but would not say how much the company would pay. Nordstrom executives will assist in decisions such as who the architect of the apartment, hotel and retail tower will be, Barnett said".

it means that nordstroom have now the power to choice the architect for the entire tower, probably they will force to choice a chip architect for a trivial depressing architecture tower, for maximize the profits.
like teh trivial and depressing and not creative cim tower at 430 park avenue, high and ugly and stupid!

It could be anywhere between 200 and 350m, depending on how high they make the ceilings and if they acquire Extell's adjacent sites.

I really hope that it will be similar to 432 Park. It would be so awesome if it would. Two new masterpieces defining the skyline of midtown of a new generation

But with nicer cladding and thicker. That would be perfect.

I get that you guys like simplistic boxes, but just because I like say, One57, doesn't mean I want another with altered dimensions in the same city. One supertall box is more than enough.
