I love the design, and allow me to point out that you are very brave to use that SparklePony-like image for your avatar.

The dimensions are about the same as the Solow Building next door, as deep ( somewhat more at the base ), as heigh, but only about 1/5 as wide.

As I said some time ago in a French forum, I love it when places start developing their own characteristic in the design of the buildings. In the case of that part of midtown Manhattan, the distinguishing feature is starting to be the really narrow and tall towers.

Reminds me of 432 Park, only half the size. This will be another incredibly thin tower.

I think it will look more like 2/3 of Torre Verre, without the outer steel.

I know, we're talking about similar slenderness here.

The developer (JDS) for this project just bought a landmarked building (steinway building) next door to this site. He did not purchase this to make it nicer and maintain it. Its not their (JDS Dev) DNA but to develop.

My guess is he would incorporate the base of this building with the tower. In order to build on it he would have to at the very minimum maintain the facade of this landmarked building for approval. Is that correct?

If he combined this building with this project he could effectively make the base larger and build higher than 697 ft. Is that plausible?

The heading of the thread say its in prep so i'm wondering if changes could be made at this point to accomodate his newest aquisition next door?

All kinds of intriguing possibilities but the Steinway's facade is sacrosanct:



That 12 story building is a simple block and fill construction which is less malleable than steel for reworking so I'm guessing major retail component and maybe some sort of project integration to the back.

Thanks.. That’s what I was thinking also. I was just wondering if it would have been possible should they have bigger visions for this site. Nonetheless, this will be a nice little addition to the skyline standing along side One57 viewing from central park.

JDS, PMG partnership mull adding 200 feet to Steinway-adjacent tower

Purchase of West 57th Street site likely allows developers to expand scope of planned project

March 28, 2013 05:30PMBy Katherine Clarke and Mel Gray



A previous rendering of the tower

A partnership led by Michael Stern’s JDS Development and Property Markets Group is considering increasing the height of its planned hotel and condominium tower on West 57th Street to up to 900 feet, following the acquisition of the adjacent Steinway building, a principal at PMG told The Real Deal.

The partnership paid $46 million for a stake in the 247,000-square foot building at 109 West 57th Street belonging to Steinway Musical Instruments, the manufacturer of the classic pianos, in partnership with Atlantic Investors earlier this month. The purchase likely allows the developers to ramp up their plans for an adjacent site they bought last spring with Starwood Capital, Kevin Maloney of PMG told The Real Deal last month.

The JDS/PMG partnership paid $40 million for a stake in 107 West 57th Street, between Sixth and Seventh avenues, and subsequently filed plans for a skinny, 679-foot, 51-story condominium property on the 43-foot-wide lot, to be designed by architecture firm Cetra Ruddy. It was slated to have just 29 condominium units. However, the addition of the Steinway site likely gives the developers the option to build a larger structure comparable to the likes of Extell Development’s 1,000-foot One57 down the block. The Steinway building has close to 45,000 square feet of air rights attached, according to PropertyShark.

Michael Stern of JDS declined to comment on the deal or the plans for the property. Plans for a larger project have not yet been filed with the Department of Buildings, records show.

While the specific details of the tower have not yet been decided, Maloney told The Real Deal earlier this month that it will likely have a hotel component with condominium units above. All apartments will have unobstructed Central Park views, he said.

Maloney noted that the developers will have to work around limitations linked to the Steinway building’s status as a registered New York landmark. The fašade on the first four floors of the building is protected, and the property features a ground-floor, two-story rotunda with a 35-foot domed ceiling. A spokesperson for the Landmarks Preservation Commission was not immediately available for comment.
