A little more than that, 4,3 or something. But there are many different sources that say different floor numbers.

Funny you mentioned about the scale. I was at the site today and went by the 58th street side and it was the first time I could actually see what was going on with that building.

Currently there are streams of workers in that building and it looks like to me the interior demo is about done. That building where I assume the driveway will be is actually very spacious. VERY. I was pretty surprised.

The pit on the 57th street side, lots of activity as well and the pit is getting pretty deep.












via Property Markets below. This will give you an idea on the lighting scheme for the midtown facing side.




This tower is going to rock.

Beautiful. But since the setbacks double as balconies, I expect they won't actually be able to consistently light them that way (except for the uppermost handful which are just part of the crown/mech floors).

I know it's unlikely, but I have to wonder whether the gaga reaction over the renders of this tower will compel Extell to try something more adventurous with Nordstrom. And I actually quite like what we've seen of Nordstrom. But Right now, if I'm a billionaire comparing the two, I'm leaning heavily towards the sculptural masterpiece with dead-center, unimpeded Park views.

Elegant and sophisticated. I really love the facade and the planned lighting scheme. It just exudes class.

This is beautiful beyond words. It gave me a deeply mystical feeling, the lighting scheme is perfect, it almost feels to be alien in a world full of imperfection. It is just another proof that Central Park will have the best skyline in the world in a few years

Hahaha, this picture ends the jokes of this building only having a pair of misterious, loyal and devoted workers...

But can start another instead, about a bunch of workers just watching what a few others are doing

By the way, this would be that building on 58th street, as you can see, it matches exactly that driveway, with the two entrances, the five windows and even the other small door between the two main entrances.

They will demolish the first floor plate and make the driveway double height.

My first thought was how small the construction side actually is. One excavator is doing a job for a building that would have been a few years ago the second tallest on earth after willis tower and now it's almost a "one man excavation show"

No need to go all the way back to the Pyramids but as recently as the Burj Khalifa.

I agree the lighting scheme is going to be fantastic. The Steinway Tower is absolutely the crème de la crème currently going on in NYC. Sorry Verre and I love you almost just as much.

This pic is amazing. I love real estate porn almost as much as I love skyscraper porn - maybe more.

While obviously out of my pay grade, I can totally sit back and imagine sitting in that unit as the night falls over Manhattan.

It captures the best of all my favorite unattainable vices.

Just imagine that to be your living room, at 400 meter above Central Park. Amazing.

As much as I love this building, the interior renderings of these ultra-lux buildings are always incredibly sleazy. They look like only an ex-KGB oligarch would even consider living there.
I guess the marketers know who they're catering to.

How is that sleazy? looks pretty good to me.

If money was no object, I would hire Stern to personally do my interiors in this smacking apartment.

But I guess that is the reason Robert A.M Stern is soo successful. Dude knows what luxury should be in a tasteful way.

Boobs Kowaltchuk and Juan just have a few supervisors checking out their work, that's all.
