One 57 is kinda frustrating... sometimes I want to love it but other times it just looks like it was better in theory than in result. Even YIMBY much prefers 432 Park to it.

No doubt in my mind though that Nordstrom will be great and well received by the vast majority of tower freaks like us.

LOVE the bonus of Carnegie Tower ... one of the best developments in modern NY!

One 57 is OK except for the discolored glass panels on the top. It looks like they just ran out of light blue glass.

I'm generally not a fan of Michael Graves, but he got it right with Carnegie Tower.

IMO NYC is getting too much blue glass, just like every other city, but I hope Nordstrom Tower turns out good. It will be tall regardless. 220 and 111 W 57 will be the stars of billionaires' row.

I'm not crazy about the blue craze going down right now either but hey for people who don't like it there's plenty to choose from who aren't doing it. I'm loving the art deco references coming through on some of the new stuff too. 220 CP South, 30 Park Place and of course 111 W. 57th. There's kinda something for everyone right now lol

Sorry for the question, but is the 541 meters of Nordstrom Tower connected with 1WTC/Freedom Tower any way or the same height only by accident ?

The developer made the height 1 foot shorter than One World Trade Center as a sign of respect (and a foot doesn't make a difference in terms of meters), but rumors suggest that it might be taller.

I think this tower is not supposed to be on that spot. It should be to the right of One57

Wasn't that Shvo's proposal? Is that still in the works or was it cancelled?

It's a forumer's mock-up -- not an official render -- that I believe was meant to be Shvo's "100 Story Tower," which has yet to materialize. I'm not holding my breath for it.

[QUOTE=Buyckske Ruben;123857222]Crazy tower !!!





In this picture why does it look like 432 park is taller than Nordstrom? Bad render i suppose because is it not 1500 some odd feet to the roof?

I don't think it's an accurate render in terms of height. Nordstrom tower is essentially 50 percent taller than One57. In that image it only appears about 35 percent taller.

I was referring to the roof height. In this pic it looks like the roof of 432 park is taller than the roof of Nordstrom. That's why I was saying maybe a bad render but myb render was a bad choice to word it. I should've said looks like a botched PIC in terms of relevant roof height. Does that make more sense?

That's a vision for Vornado's 31 W 57th. I doubt that the tower will be that tall unless the developer buys other sites, like Hadassah.

I should have clarified too. I meant that 432 park avenue is basically 40 percent taller than One57: 1400 feet vs 1000 feet. If Nordstrom is going to be 1500 feet, and therefore 50 percent taller than One57, it definitely should appear higher than it does in the picture.
