Step by step man, this building would be top dog even in China or Dubai, just because it doesn't reach 2k doesn't make it not a sheer monster.

Is this building all residential? (Besides Nordstrom of course)

Exactly. This will be as tall as the second tallest structure in Shanghai.

Woooowwww! What amazing news! I am very happy! I'd be happy with 350 meters (1150 feets), but knowing that this will have in 1550 feets is even better!
The horizon in a few years will be incredible with 432 Park, Tower Verre, One57 and 225 West 57th Street in view of Central Park. Not to mention all the various proposed super tall to be built around the city, and all the others that will come. Perfect!

where did you hear that the 85th floor would be 85 feet?

if that's the case this thing is breaking 1700'

Isnt the 1550 ft including the 85th floor as thats the highest occupid space so it wont matter how tall it is because its already included at least thats what i think the thing that can add decent height is the mechanicals and a crown but thats just what i was thinking about the 85th floor

Yea,I've also heard the last floor being 85' tall.

1,550'
+85'
1,635'

This could easily hit +1,700'(also,don't forget the three mechanical floors).

If only Mr.Barnett later decides to ad a spire and a crown.Possible height of 2,100'.If only.

Sorry man, I certainly didn't mean to take any credit for the original picture, I have edited it to cite you as the original editor.

This is wonderful news. New tallest building in the country to the roof for sure, and possibly overall! It's even taller than I expected it to be (I was expecting 1450-1500ft/440-460m range)!

This photo by John Flint shows a contrast between a 3,000 year old Egyptian Obelisk which was given to NY in the 19th Century, and Extell's new "obelisk." Very few New Yorkers are even aware of this obelisk, which sits in Central Park behind the Egyptian wing of the Met.

I can't wait for its second "obelisk" to rise at 225 W 57th.

Isn't that obelisk just a recreation of an original one found in Egypt?

No. It's real. The Egyptian government gave it to NY as a gift in the 1800s. (Google it.) It's one of NY's greatest (and yet, most obscure) treasures. Obelisks apparently were erected in pairs, and this one's twin is in London.

fOR ROBERT W.
HI ROBERT I NEED YOUR COMMENT , WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT GARY WORDS?
What lucky architect gets to design such a multifaceted project? The Observer had heard that Herzog & de Meuron had beat out the likes of Jean Nouvel, Norman Foster and SHoP, but on that count, Mr. Barnett demured. “I’m not going to confirm or deny that, but I wouldn’t print that if I were you,” he said

All we know is that the architect is based outside of the US, since it's utilizing an architect of record.
