I'd rather have a shorter city with quality low and mid-rises than a tall city with terrible short buildings.

Fortunately for NY, it's a mega-tall city with an ocean of outstanding, pre-War short buildings.

Indeed.

And I like this tower. It fits the location and is well designed.

The bulk of each floor is a single span from core to outer wall (6th Ave) so there will be large amounts of open space.

Park location and leed rating are a bonus I guess.

Thanks, seems like a while but I guess they still have to do prep and excavation and foundation. This and the Int Gem Tower are two phenomenal fillers only a few minutes away from each other, can't wait to see this rise.

This one is just like Hearst tower, a low-rise building with an outstanding design.

I would not compare it to Hearst, which has a much more iconic design than 7 Bryant Park and rightly so, as it is a flagship corporate tower for one of the globe's largest publishing firms. It's also much taller and borders Hell's Kitchen, so it's likely that nothing will rise to the site's west for the foreseeable future. 7 Bryant Park is in the thick of Midtown and will be nearly totally invisible.

Hearst is also 46 stories tall, far greater than 28 (and the mid-rise scale, at least).

You are a lucky man having an office in 1065 Ave of the Americas ( the first building over 100m at 6th ave), nice view on Bryant Park.
This building will be nearly as tall as yours.

More digging today. Also, it looks like one of the excavators is being used as a crane.

Ground Officially Broken For 7 Bryant Park



Quote:
MIDTOWN WEST—With Mayor Mike in attendance, ground was broken at 7 Bryant Park (aka 1045 Sixth Avenue), the future site of a glassy 28-story tower that'll look like those shiny renderings above. It will serve as the replacement for the old, boxy, modernist Milliken Building, which was demolished in 2009.

A couple photos from yesterday. Lots of work going on. They also put up the renders on the fence surrounding the site.

Thanks for your pics! (the like button doesn't work on your post)

BTW the red car on the first pic seems to have a McDonald's logo on its roof... From where where does it come from?
