I know, isn't it ridiculous? I only hope that the rendering is something worthwhile, because If I've been checking this thread for months just to end up seeing a large tall blue box, i'll be joining this guy.

Well, at least they are very busy. This one could be U/C by any moment.

True. One 57 was u/c before the design was released, so I wouldn't be overly surprised if we saw something like that here.

Great project! Can't wait to the final design and height numbers.

I agree. Extell is known to come late with official renders. They will do when they start to sell these condo's.

Yawn, where is the tower? What a bore. Might as well watch the world cup instead of this site for a while.

Thanks for the clarification. So without, financing, they will probably not go further than preparation?

I am aware that there is no way of knowing definitively, but do you have any guess as to how much longer until Extell receives the construction loan?

If you're pulling for a few days you should go to a doctor, get it checked out.

This seems like the riskiest tower to build out of the 57th monsters, financially. Set back behind another tower, not dead on views like 157, beat to the market by 432 park and others, no architectural cache that we can tell, etc.

l disagree because l think with Nordstrom as the anchor tenant they should have an advantage in getting those loans not to mention the fact that Extell already has one57 succesfully ramping up.

Unlike the windmill "supertalls" "planned" in other cities, this is real and not a mere phantom of Don Quioxote's imagination.
Thanks for the news, Robert! So they demolished a solid pre-war high-rise out of pure speculation that financing will be achieved? Hopefully this won't be another Madison Avenue and 33rd Street situation.

Not a chance especially with Nordstrom committed. Extell is working on a special deal. They want to work with the least amt of investors. Mainly with just 1 or 2 entities for financing preferably as Gary has mentioned in the past for this tower. They still have the time and they are taking their sweet time. If they have indeed secured financing, they don't have to announce until they are good and ready. That could be when AS&SG has finalized the re-design.

My guess is that they have something lined up already but deals such as this takes time and is complicated. Extell will pay Arts League how much?? Plus they are already paying for everything to start the work and go vertical. How long is that time frame to have excavation and foundation completed b4 they could make it official with financing?? Plenty

your fixation on Robert Walpole is disturbing.

I'm hoping we'll see the design for this beast of a tower by the end of September. I would keep an eye on this website, they sometimes get renderings early.http://newconstructionmanhattan.com/...e-construction
