Honestly NYC should not show anything to anyone. The last thing we want to do is to try and follow some fashion somewhere. NYC has its own distinct original skyscraper style. It was the first one in the world along with Chicago. IMHO - China and Dubai is just a new imitation of something that is forgotten. So to show anything - is not an option and not a way to go.

On the other hand NYC needs more modern buildings. Not necessarily that huge, but still.

Finally I'd rather prefer to see more stylish construction in smaller size to just plain taller_the_better_no_style_at_all.


all of the above has nothing to do with this building in particular.

Reminds me of One King West in Toronto, which is also build over such a building and it's extremely thin.

They've only just assembled the necessary air rights to build to the height they want, so they're probably still designing the tower.

I'm feeling that this building will be amazing. The cool this building, unlike other projects in the city, is that this has increasingly gained more height. I like these guys, not afraid to build high.

107 W57th will now be 1,350'. SHoP is the architect.

So much for a classical tower!

It's real. My friend said that it has many setbacks, which are visible on the south facade.

Amazing. I am interested to see a detail of the shiny cladding on the sides and the composition of that tall and seemingly elaborate crown.

The whole thing is about as skinny as the very top of One 57. I guess I'll trust the engineers, but this and 432 Park just seem scary thin to me.

That just looks ridiculous. Makes 432 Park Avenue look fat.

Here's the article:

New Era for Skyscrapers

Tall, Skinny Residential Towers Take the Place of Midtown Office Buildings


A rendering of developer Michael Stern's planned apartment tower at 107 W. 57th St.,
which will be approximately 1,350 feet tall.

Quote:
Developer Michael Stern wants to build a stairway to heaven in Midtown Manhattan.

The managing partner of JDS Development Group and his partners at Property Markets Group are planning a skinny, ultra-luxury condo tower on West 57th Street, which will be about 100 feet taller than the Empire State Building. The venture's plans for the tower submitted last month to the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission call for an approximately 1,350-foot skyscraper that sets back from the street numerous times as it reaches higher—resembling tall, thin steps.

"It's really going to enhance the skyline," says Vishaan Chakrabarti, a partner at SHoP Architects, which designed the tower. He says the planned tower would be clad with bronze-and-white terra-cotta stripes, so the building "sparkles during the day and has a soft glow at night."

It remains unclear whether the venture has obtained financing, a crucial element for any development, especially at a time that many banks are still reluctant to make loans for condo projects. A spokesman for JDS declined to comment on the financing, but said the developer hopes to break ground early next year.

Should it be built, the tower would be the latest entrant in the luxury condo-fueled skyscraper race that is reshaping the Midtown vista and ushering in a new era for skyscrapers in the city. Up until now, the city's skyline has been dominated by office towers that house thousands of workers. But lately many of the new towers rising, particularly around Central Park, have been skinny apartment towers.

[...]

Earlier this year, Mr. Stern's group increased the size of the project by cutting a deal for additional development rights from a nearby property owner and by buying a neighboring building—the 1925-built home of piano maker Steinway Musical Instruments Inc.'s flagship store—and its air rights. In all, the venture has spent more than $250 million on acquisitions, according to property records.

In addition to its height, the building is notable for being so thin. Its lot is just 43-feet wide, according to city records, and many of the floors would be 4,000 to 5,000 square feet in size, Mr. Chakrabarti says.

The building is slated to include many full-floor apartments with views all around. "There will be moments in these apartments where you can see Midtown to the south and Central Park to the north," he says.

[...]

Woah awesome!

225w57th may have gotten knocked down but this almost makes it worth it.
