The link below was posted on SSP by NYGuy. It describes a hearing on October 1 regarding this building before the Landmarks commission.

http://www.citylandnyc.org/proposed-...ll/#more-20423


I'm surprised by some of the negative comments regarding the proposal. If JDS ends up building a supertall tower in that empty lot only, it will block a lot more of the Steinway than would be impacted by the demolition of the inner courtyard walls.


No decision yet:


Without a quorum for a vote, Chair Tierney said that he agreed the proposal represented a direction of “letting this landmark breathe, and letting it be restored,” as well as “high quality, inventive, creative architecture.” He asked the applicants to return to Landmarks at a later date for further discussion and a possible vote.

This tower makes 432 Park Avenue look bulky.

so far the best and most creative tower I have seen anywhere in the USA in the works. Even WTC 1 is pretty standard comparing to this. The only one I can think of in terms of something entirely original is WTC 2, but alas it is on hold now.

107 west 57th is in a league of its own in slenderness and elegance.

With the terra cotta sides it will be a modern day Woolworth building.

It will be a cross between Woolworth with the terracotta and Seagram with the brass/bronze.

I was walking by the project and noticed this sign - http://www.flickr.com/photos/emilio_guerra/9227288661/

it reads "work on this project is scheduled to be completed by December 2014" how is this possible.

Any thoughts?

Landmark approval: http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2013/1...s_approval.php


SHoP-Designed 1,350-Foot Tower Gets Landmarks Approval



Quote:
The Landmarks Preservation Commission was sort of surprisingly okay with SHoP Architects' proposed 1,350-square-foot residential tower at 107 West 57th Street, the site of the landmarked Steinway Building (which will also be restored), when it was presented two weeks ago. While the commissioners did have a few concerns, the were for the most part related to the Steinway Building and not to the tower itself. At a second presentation this morning, SHoP addressed those concerns, revising their plans to demolish a much smaller portion of the structure taking up the Steinway Building's back courtyard and replacing the glass of the 57th Street atrium facade with a much clearer single-layered glass, so that observers at street level would be able to look through and see the landmarked building. The plans were approved, and so the 1,350-foot climb begins.

All it needs now is financing. It shouldn't be too hard except if the economy crumbles, once again (2007-08).
