I agree with you Funkyskunk. I bet Gary will try to pump in even more air rights into this site if he can

Maybe he could trsnfer more air rights from the site he got recently from Related for 1 Hudson Yards

I wonder if they will stick a spire/crown on top to beat 1WTC, then it would be the tallest in the USA, rather than 'just' tallest to roof.

It's already been said there will be no spire, but they put a sizable crown on One57 so hopefully they will here too.

I think Gary said that up to 1550' there won't be any 'gimmick', i.e. a spire or similar. What's beyond that height remains to be seen. I guess some sort of crown.

A spire or crown on top of the 1550 would be the best.

all about the design, if it has a flat roof like 1WTC i would prefer no spire, if it tapers to make a nice crown like ping an it looks much better when a spire tops it off

It's a residential tower, so most likely there won't be any spire. Trump World Tower, Beekman, One57 etc all have flat roofs and / or crowns.

My main concern is the tower won't break the 500m mark. But at this point it's all speculation, so I won't get into that discussion.

well most likely it will not break the 500m mark since it is set to be 470m.

As Felipe said, 472 meters is the floorplate of the top occupied floor. Above that there will surely be several mech floors and a parapet or a crown. I expect the roof height to be 500-510 meters based on the difference between roof height and top occupied floor floorplate of other modern NYC supertalls

No. As far as I know this is Extell on its own.

I had a terrible dream, indeed, a nightmare in early June.
The render was leaked, and to my utmost bitter taste, there was a bloody short, thick spire and guess what, the building was supposed to stand 1550 thanks to that freaky spire. The overall design was like one of the Petronas twins but in an ominous manner, kind of totally black and ugly with that freaky spire...
When I realised that it was just a dream, God, I felt like I survived September 11...

I didn't know I had such great hopes from this tower....

I once had a dream that I was standing in front of the Nanjing Greenland Financial Tower and was lecturing about how roof height is measured to a huge audience. I remember that in the dream I said that "This building is shorter than the Willis Tower!"

You need to join the You know you're an architecture buff when... discussion over at Skybar. I'm sure you'd have some good input.

So, since this is in the prep phase does that mean that Extell has the final design it just hasn't been released yet to the public?

Prep means they are preparing the site. The design is irrelevant for this status.
