Fair enough but I was thinking about an economical tower that would be small but efficient or a supertall that would fit in sequentially between the Chrysler Building and 1 Vandy

I agree! SOM's proposal has that tower as a twin supertall in their GCT Vision.

That halo proposal is the most beautiful NYC render ever. One day it will happen. In that halo render, the building in 1VB's plot is approximately how tall? I wanna know if we can expect the same bird's eye view of Vandy. Vandy should be even taller than that one, right? Incredible.

One Vandy is alright (I prefer the boxier version that looks like Willis Tower), but I am more pumped about what's on deck: 341 Madison, The Grand Hyatt, and The Roosevelt.

The Roosevelt and 341 Madison are very nice structures, so the skyscrapers that replace them need to be top-notch.

I'm betting they will be.

P.S. I REALLY can't wait until that hideous Grand Hyatt meets the wrecking ball. Trump should be ashamed of that disaster.

I believe the Roosevelt is high on the list for the LMC's long list to protect within the Midtown East Rezoning.

I hope so.... anything else in that Madison corridor including the Hyatt, but the Roosevelt should be spared by landmarking.

First time I ever 'hear' about this proposal/ vision. Looks unbelievable. Very imaginative. I wonder if that could even be physically possible ?

Vanderbilt rezoning the start of something big

Entire article in link
http://rew-online.com/2015/03/11/van...something-big/

Quote:
There’s been a lot of activity around Grand Central Terminal lately, and not just the usual hustle bustle of rush hour commuters.

Last month, at a City Planning Commission hearing, the proposed Vanderbilt Corridor Text Amendment and SL Green’s Special Permit Application for One Vanderbilt received strong support.

One Vanderbilt is an iconic Class A office tower in Midtown Manhattan. The building’s design was to meet today’s market needs, but also address a civic need to strengthen the Midtown Core and the Grand Central District. Formally, the massing is comprised of four interlocking, tapering volumes that spiral up to the sky. This tapered shape creates an elegant proportion sympathetic to the shaft of nearby Chrysler Building. At the base, a series of angled cuts organize a visual procession to Grand Central Terminal, revealing the Vanderbilt corner of its magnificent cornice – a view which has been obstructed for nearly a century.

The material palette of the design takes cues from the textured, masonry construction typical of the neighborhood – the tower wall consists of a terra cotta spandrel while terra cotta soffits and herringbone flooring are reminiscent of Guastavino tile work. Shading elements enhance environmental performance and add texture to the tower.

Although the section of the tapered form is sloped, the plans of the building are strictly rectangular – the building facades integrate harmoniously with the larger urban fabric of the New York City grid. Additionally, the design accommodates a variety of floor plates.

An active urban base makes One Vanderbilt a 21st century successor to Rockefeller Center. A Transit Hall on the North-East corner of the site anchors a proposed pedestrian-only Vanderbilt Ave. By positioning the primary office entry on this new Vanderbilt Plaza, the design stresses a synergy of public and private space at the main address. The Transit Hall offers an incredible integration of complex below grade conditions to grade; a grand stair connects the Transit Hall to Grand Central Concourse Level B1, a further escalator continues to Dining Level B2, and a final escalator leads to East Side Access. On the South end of Vanderbilt Plaza, an MTA connection to Shuttle and 4, 5, 6 Subway Lines is created. Finally, retail edges along Madison Avenue and 42nd Street add frontage that follows city guidelines and an additional 7 foot setback at the sidewalk on Madison Avenue opens up the congested shopping route.

Following the layered language of such great New York buildings as the Chrysler, the Empire State, and the Woolworth, the top of One Vanderbilt spirals up to a narrow point. A nuanced fašade treatment that interplays vertical and diagonal structure against a transparent glass is also pragmatic, offering panoramic views of the city. The core wall is lined with folding metal panels that reflect and refract natural light, a design that accentuates the crystalline form against the city skyline.
As Lex stated, still no new images.

I guess they shortened it a few feet, maybe because they wanted exactly 1500' and they're sticklers.

This building is going to be so awesome though... can't wait for it to hopefully begin construction next year

I wish. Sadly, I think that the Roosevelt will be razed eventually.

The thing that sucks about rezoning is that it focuses on the stretch between Madison and Vanderbilt, which has stunning towers. Ideally, all pre-wars should be landmarks.

I still can't believe SOM proposed something so ridiculous as a giant cockring over Grand Central Terminal. It makes me wish more that Penn Central Transportation Co. v. New York City was ruled in favor of the former.

Maybe they increased the height of the occupied observation tower area from 1,415' to 1,500', which would beat Nordstrom for tallest US tower.

I can easily see them raising the height by 85'.
