Whoa, good find. When the initial renders came out, it seemed that JamesDL had the wrong information, but this does sound like he may have been looking at the real deal (albeit probably an earlier iteration) after all.

...which is good and bad, because I really do hope it isn't green.

Wow, I forgot about the JamesDL sagas... We really have been through so much with this tower!

RE: VG's post, I love that the renderings Otie did for YIMBY are just flying all over the Internet. Extell's gotta be scratching their heads.

And that's why, when you release a design, you release the finished product!

To the extent that this image is not posted at the site, I wonder if this is, in fact, the final design or if it's still being tweaked. I'll be in the area later today and will post some photos.

Looks good! I like the spire on top. It does look a bit blade-runner-ish.

Tres magnifique en effet!
I'm trying hard to like that tower but I can't, in fact it looks like a complete dud next to those other towers on 57th st. Maybe the cladding will help when we see the official renderings.

But that skyline!! I might start making some trips to the top of the rock when they're all built. Actually the Great Lawn will be as good a spot to gaze at those towers.

This part of NY will be transformed dramatically. One 57 is the first of a whole new generation of very tall towers, much taller than the current towers.

Thanks for assembling those shots! Makes me want to go to the trouble of importing all the models to Google Earth. If it's not a pain, do you have links to the models you used?

That is a very cool thing to do in cities where they are building many skyscrapers, so you can see the skyline in advance

The rendering hasn't been posted, which makes me wonder if it's still being tweaked.



These little gems will be dwarfed by their new giant neighbors on 58th, Nordstrom and 220 CPS.



This photo from the spring shows Nordstrom's
Beautiful 57th Street neighbors!

The renderings we all had seen were leaked and not officially released by Extell and Smith Gill. I do think some tweaking is still possible until they are good and ready to make it official and finally post this beauty where it belongs in the construction site.


Tweak = refinement

I think the design is probably final, Extell does not care about fines re: on-site visuals.
