Don't count on it. The numbers in the thread title are probably correct, because these were filed.

The tower represented in those Renderings must have a 500m+ roof.

Version B would fit Chicago like a Charm.

The topic is 225 W. 57th. If you have anything to report such as new photos, I'd love to see them.

Looks like we'll have to wait until it rises above the fence before we see anything.

I guess both sites are facing towards the central park. So this view will exist when both towers are finished.

But won't 225 West 57th Street be towering right in front of it ?

Or is it the other way around ? Then it would work... (edit) Oh yeah, now I see it...

220 CPS is in front of the Nordstrom Tower and forever has unblockable views of the park. That's why the Nordstrom Tower will cantilever, in order to "look besides" 220CPS.
