Chinese Buyers snap up NYC skyscrapers
http://nypost.com/2014/06/07/nycs-ne...ll-live-there/

Quote:
New York is back in the high life — with a new generation of towers more than 800 feet tall expected to crowd the skyline in the next few years.

Why so many new skyscrapers? Demand, for one — foreign buyers in particular are eager to snap up a spot in Manhattan. And modern businesses are looking to new office towers for the latest in energy efficiency, Internet access and style. But one of the biggest changes is technological.

Structural advances mean ulta-thin towers higher than the Empire State Building (1,250 feet at roof, 1,454 feet at spire) can be built on spaces one-half acre or even smaller.

Here’s a look at some of the towers headed our way: (click in link)

111 West 57th St. 1,400 feet Condos, 60ft. wide at base, top tapers to 'disappear'

I'm telling ya fellas! This sucker is going 1400'

How reliable is this source? 1,400' would be awesome though.

I trust it. The developer, the architect, the graphic from NYTimes and our colleague, Mr. Yimby has mentioned it recently! What more does anyone want??

I trust Yimby and has mentioned it in his latest update for this tower. Yimby has done several interviews featuring Mr. Stern from JDS development. Bank on it for ~1400'.


Credit to funkyskunk adding 425 Park in that graphic.

I think that it will be a great tower if they succeed with the crown, in addition to any potential height increases such as adding a residential component.

There a plenty of US cities where 780 feet would not be a superscraper.

It´s mindblowing how a mere 750 footer development evolved to a +1400 feet tall very iconic masterpiece.

Yea back in the days when it was known as 105 West 57th. Actually the original figures when first proposed was:

697' and 51 floors

There's a definite propensity toward small-footprint towers. I assume it's for the same reasons as Dubai - cost of land and rich folk wanting at least corner views, if not whole floors.

From mediocre to absolutely iconic.

I have to say, I actually loved the old design. Not that I'd prefer it to the new, huge, beautiful one, but I would not mind at all to see it repurposed elsewhere.

Is land in Dubai expensive? I can't imagine it is. It's a desert. In Dubai.

Considering, I imagine there is "x" amount of land near infrastructure (water, sewage, electricity, transport, etc), so it is likely pricier than you'd expect. Especially given the nature of many of the developments that go up (luxury commercial and residential space).

Of course it is. Being a desert shouldn't make that much difference. Dubai's land isn't going to be worth that much less just because it is drier.
