I hereby pledge to make no other comments but this ONE, until there is actually something newsworthy.

I went by the site yesterday. It does appear that the building on site is being gutted. Hopefully we will see exterior demolition soon.

I don't think we will see much progress on the tower until Carnegie 57 is finished. At least from outside. Extell is always cautious

I agree with this, I think the site will be ready to go building demo'd and maybe even some digging for the core but do not think we will see a ton of work until like you said 57 is completed.

I'm sad and disappointed that, by the first quarter we really lagged behind. Hope the last figure to the rooftop and the design of the structure won't disappoint us like this, and I'm already hoping it to pierce the sky at beyond 1650 feet ( accounting what occured to P.A and One57)
And today I suddenly realised the best design for this bigwig would be that of "The Shard", for it is suitably large at the base and it tapers logically keeping in mind the figure of Total Floor Area. And at that, the skyline would have one conspicuous feature that would ultimately break the Midtown Plateau.
Long live The Nordstrom Tower.

Sadly, I think you're right. They'll go for caution on this one and the delays at 157 aren't helping it either

I disagree. Delayed progress with One57 will not have any effect with the start of this project because Nordstrom is the anchor tenant for 225W57, so there is no need for caution. Extell would be under the clock for completion because.....

An executed agreement has already been made between the retailer and the developer that doors will be open by late 2017 or early 2018 for business which means this tower should definitely be topped out by 2017.

I agree, I don't think it will affect One 57.

Also I think once work commences again on One 57, it will finish up quickly. I think they are just undergoing a DOB review on plans to lift the crane to finish up the building.

after 2008 financial collapse everyone plays safe. no more crazy deals without ironclad profits. I can't say I am against this - better safe than sorry.

Well, I hope that Nordstrom will push at Extell to build it as fast as possible. I'd be very glad if my pessimism weren't to be true

Ugh. Nothing new but more speculation. I wish the moderator would put this on hold until there is actually something to report. What a waste of time to check this for REAL information.

Yeah, I was so irritated when they just ignored your post. Here we have again pointless speculation about what will be build before what or how long it will take. Seriously we have to talk about it again? I would normally ignore it but this is like several time we have this discussion adding very little to the topic. And IT IS the most spectacular project right know in the new york or in the whole us for that matter and so I am checking this thread every time it is bumped that's why it bothers me and others that visiting this thread is such a waste of time. So closing the thread would not be the worst of ideas but then again it's ny project so we know well no one is going to do that hence we can only rely on self control. So please unless you have really something new to say don't post.

I don't see anything wrong with talking. A forum is all about talking. If you don't want to talk, then don't talk but let others talk if they want to

Well I see something wrong about talking nth time about the same speculation stuff, because the thread gets bumped and I don't know if this is something worth reading unless I read it. And apparently I'm not the only one judging by how many people liked Mplsuptowns request.
