Today's NewYorkYimby Article on the Nordstrom Tower contains a wealth of (unofficial renders) and does a great job illustrating how that tower will balance out 432 Park on the CP Skyline:

The render looks great. I state that right up front. But I think 225 W. 57th looks a little short. I think its roof (parapet) should be closer to the top of that cloud.

Nice rendering!

I agree that 225 is short there. It should be much higher because #1, Nordstrom to the parapet is aprox 100' higher than 432. #2) The Nordstrom is on a higher elevation than 432 Park by a good 40-50'.

Even if 225 will be a bit taller, 432 Park will no longer look out of place with similar heights nearby. In fact it will look 10x more 'New York' than it does now.

Also, I hadn't thought about this before, but the horizontal bands of the mechanical floors of 432, 111 and 225 will all complement one another!

Once this and all the other supertalls are completed, the Met rooftop will have the best view in town

Wow, that must be a special deck on top of the ESB 102 floor observatory?

What is the height of 432 right now and how many more feet until top out?

I feel like they really slowed down. Haven't heard of much height change in the past few weeks.

Absolutely remarkable...

These pics were taken from an reportage shown today in the most watched news program here in Brazil.

The story was about the WTC. (PS: $4 billion dollars for a Metro Station?! #insane)
