This tower will be ~775,000 square feet. That's even less than 70 Pine in the Financial District!

Residential towers have to be thin. Nobody would pay big money to have many rooms without windows

Have anybody by any chance saved those renders? Unfortunately I missed them so it would be really nice of somebody if he/her could reupload them somewhere.

Entirely agree. It's all good and well to have these massive towers, but the history is still important.

I absolutely love the abundance of excellent lowrises in New York. To me it's what makes it the most interesting city to walk through.

This will have a smaller GFA than 70 Pine St? Wow. That building itself is quite thin and 500 feet shorter

The main shaft is indeed quite thin but the lower 100m is quite bulky.

Thanks for the photos. It should look pretty good when the concrete is cleaned and what not.
