They are not official; according to Yimby, Dbox has the contract to do the official renders, but those have been impossible to come by (if they even exist already).

Anyone want to take a stab at incorporating 111 and 220 into these renders??

I'd like too see that one without spire 10x better.
I love the spires, especially the biggest one..think of it as a definitive New York style thumbs up as even at 1,775 ft(one ft shorter than WTC1) it's one hundred ft above sea level, 88 ft higher up than down by the WTC complex. Highest point (so far) for Manhattan and NYC!

So damn freaking beautiful and amazing...

I liked the tower when the leaked diagrams were up. But the cladding and all of the details make this a gem for New York. My favorite W 57th street tower.

Though, not as out of place as it is in the barrens where it currently lives.

I don't find Burj Khalifa fitting for Manhattan's core.

These are Yomby's renderings -- not Extell's. Barnet stated that this is not the design.

Thanks be to God!

NY deserves something more worthy than this dull box.

It's YOUR opinion it's a dull box. Rather that than a garish foreign phallus .

Absolutely. This is not a boring box, but a spectacular tower.

Actually looks quite nice! All the 57th street towers compliment each other quite well... Relaxing at the great lawn and just looking at these towers is just something i'm really looking forward to doing

The original placeholder was the scary, horrible one. Looked like it could easily be a garish mess itself. This current one may well be tweaked additionally but Extell definitely is headed in the right direction...spectacular steel and glass icon for the new century New York!
