420 meters would be taller than the ESB not including the antenna. If this building has a great design, it could become a new symbol of NYC.

If this tower rises to over 400m. It could pave the way for a new generation of height in midtown. Since this one would dominate very much, towers around 320m - 350m can't be called " toot all " anymore. Since they would rather "fill" skyline voids, than dominate. I simply hope that everything will work out, and not end in the never built section.

Isn't this tower on 57th Street? Or is it at the intersection of 57th and Park? Can someone explain the name to me?

And also, the guy making this is also making One57, Verre and 225 right?

This towers on 57 n park, and the drake hotel was here until it recently was demolished.

And CIM is building this, Hines is doing Verre, and Extell is doing C57 and 225 W57th. A lot to keep track of.

Don't forget that this beautiful -- but mere 225m -- tower will be joining the four new 300m+ towers planned for 57th St!

and that isnt even including the almost countless array of projects occuring in other parts of the city. America, specifically New York, is still the king of the skyscraper. New York is such an amazing city.

They should make it 440 meters tall to correspond with its address.
