So do I. From what I've seen, pretty much every tower blows this design away.

Oh well, at least there is a new tallest NY building near to it that will be International Modernist.
Not for long, hopefully.

As per the NY Observer, the new tower will be "nearly twice as tall" as the current one. The latter is 388 feet high; thus, the new tower should be at least 750 feet tall.

I'd like to see more confirmation of that. Most 40 story commercial office towers range between 500-600 ft. The articulated core/tower might push it to 700 ft in which case this thread can be returned to Skyscrapers with little effort.

I assume that the Observer newspaper has correct info.

first we want others projects rendering for comparative discussion.
Is always right respect the past,the architecture surround? with conservative,sober,correct ,modest,mediocre,without dream and mental flight architecture ? or sometimes we need brave and bold people to break with the past , transgress...
if you always respect the past and the place,never will born the new again.

I love the tiered design and white angled columns, and the lower- and mid-level gardens add a nice touch. The crown is especially interesting, with the large vertical slabs behind the upper garden area. Can't wait to see this built!

Looks pretty good.
it is a bit difficult to estimate the height, I would say just over 200 meter.

There's a public exhibition of the various entries in the competition for this commission on Oct. 19. Maybe we can learn more details then.

Mr. Levinson also announced that he and Mr. Foster will make a presentation on the conceptual design during the Municipal Arts Society's third annual Summit for New York City on Oct. 19.

Each of the three segments will have its own little outdoor garden with trees.

Begin construction in 2015? Seriously...
The design is good, not amazing, but good. I was not expecting something "phenomenal" right here.

It's amazing how NYC looked nicer in 1957 than it does today. For example (it's just one little thing), whoever's idea it was to replace those street lights with God-awful cobraheads is a disgrace to the country. That is all.

Also, Chevy Bel Airs destroy every Crown Vic taxi and hybrid piece of junk that seems to be the only things allowed on Manhattan streets today. So I suppose that wasn't all...

The Central Building looks so romantic.

Interesing note from Wired NY:

Quote:
According to our source, the designers each presented two different proposals, one in which the 25 percent provision was considered and another where the building could be torn down and replaced at the current floor-area-ratio with no restrictions, at an FAR of 18. There was no discussion of the recently announced Midtown East rezoning, which could allow buildings of exceptional quality to rise to a 24 FAR—50 percent bigger than the current zoning, a bonus that seems too tantalizing to pass up—because the plan had not yet been revealed.
So the renderings above are just the first of two options, based on available rights. A second set exists for the new upzoning which (we'd kill to see) might be kept under wraps until at least 2015 when construction is slated to either begin or be put off for the new parameters.

The current tenants don't vacate unil 2015. The proposed zoning regulations, which would permit a much taller tower, will be effective in 2017. I cannot imagine that L&L will forego the valuable opportunity to add more space.

The tower currently is around 230m with the crown. With the new zoning, L&L could add around 30% more space. Maybe they add high end condos, which would bring the tower over 300m.

Hey guys. I was checking out old cancelled supertalls in NYC on SSP such as Larkin and MetLife North and I came across this building, 425 Park. It was listed as cancelled there. Has the design been reconsidered or what?

Kanto, you're a good guy, but you must be the only person who regards these inverted scissor towers of 300 and nearly 400m to be boring.
