I'm very excited about this building. Hopefully this is an iconic design. This, combined with the possibility of something even taller at Grand Central, should be the "new" ESB and Chrysler in Midtown.

A very good point. I have never thought about these two in that way before. I hope that this one will have a bold design, with a subtle key element, and the GC tower should have a more avantgarde design, without overshadowing the Chrysler.

The Fifty-seventh Street area is already amazing, and it will be even more so when the three new towers are added (432 Park Avenue at 1,398 feet, 225 W 57th Street at 1,550 feet+, and 107 W 57th at 697 feet on a 43-foot-wide plot).

Here are two screencaps from that video (think it was posted in the WTC 1 thread):

First, a view along 57th from the west:



Then a view from the Park:

Don't forget 250 E 57th and 220 CPS, both of which will be over 200m.

They have a design that isn't available to the public yet but who knows how much it will change before the building is completed

The basic design was submitted to the NYC DOB with the NB permit application. It is not available on-line yet.

Hell no! I don't like the Sears tower. And they better never try to build anything like it in NYC.

I doubt that this would be anywhere near as massive as to resemble Willis Tower.

It will be a lot taller. Willis is a dated 70s boxy structure.

And that's still debatable considering a pinnacle height 60 feet higher than Taipei 101 as well as over twice as much square footage of space.

See I disagree with you, I love the Sear's tower,, I like it actually better than anything in the U.S. other than 1WTC,, It's just so well MASSIVE

This has probably been asked a million times already (too lazy to sift through 24 pages)....what is this tower supposed to look like?

I'm too lazy as well. I think it's supposed to look like a giant guitar.

Well I doubt I'm the best person to answer this question, but I do know there have not been any rendering released yet. There was a rendering, but it was rejected. There were also some other things said about how it won't have a spire or anything like that on top. And it will be thin but, sturdy or something like that.
