Once that concrete perimeter wall is completed, the floors and core can be poured and this will start rising. They have to remove about 10 feet of dirt and rock in the corner on the 58th street side to do so.

This tower is intriguing. There's still no official rendering. Earlier today, I showed an older engineer at the site Yimby's drawings, and he replied: "I've seen that but it's not the final design."

I think that the tower shown by Yimby is stunning, but Gary needs a genuine home run to compete with 220 CPS, Park Lane, Verre, and Steinway, all of which have better locations and landmark designs.

I sure hope so. The wait is killing me. Did you asked if the height for the tower is correct?

I didn't, but in previous trips there, several people confirmed the 1,775' spire height. It would be amazing if the " spire" were a semi-enclosed shard like the London Shard or Kingdom Spire, rather than just a stick.

Agreed. I don't mind a short "rod" style spire on some buildings, and at least this wouldn't be nearly as disproportional as the spires on 1WTC or BofA... But if it could be more elegantly incorporated into the design of the tower, that would be awesome.

To me that is essential for a good spire design.

Nice! That would be amazing.

Rebar delivery. I don't know if this was for 220 CPS or Nordstrom.

Couldn't agree more. With that kind of competition, especially 2 buildings which I'm sure will end up being landmarked: TV and Steinway, just being the tallest of the bunch doesn't cut it.
The latest rendering isn't bad but it's nothing stunning, that said I still have hope this one will turn out great.

The Park Lane will be the absolute Belle of the Ball. It has the best location -- by far -- of all of the proposals, and the Rogers' design likely will be a landmark.

It sounds very promising indeed. The Rogers pick was unexpected but bold and I loved it. To me that makes it the most anticipated render along with 125 Greenwich and the "Hudson Spire".

Yea, the fact it's Richard Rogers makes this pretty exciting and I'm really looking fwd.

For me the excitement waiting for renders are the following in order.
1) Nordstrom
2) Hudson Spire
3) 360 10th
4) Park Lane

The site underground looks similar to 432, looks promising.
