Yep, and 52 storeys. This could very well end up ~900 feet.

My guess is that there will be a crown on top, and therefore, it will be about 10-20m higher than that.

Looks like midtown's answer to 30 park. How many 250m+ NYC proposals does this make?

Recall also that R. A.M. Stern also is designing a tower of roughly the same height at 220CPS.

With respect to 45 E 60th, Zeckendorf should acquire the three dilapidated brownstones to the east of this tower. They should be restored or razed. In their current condition, they are serious eyesores, which detract from the new tower at street level.

So this has a big change to go over GE Building, in this area that sure will have dominance, if you see how good the Bloomberg Tower is visible.

I only hope that this tower and 220 CPS don't look too similar. Otherwise I'm sure they'll both turn out great.

Stern has an enormous range. He designed Comcast Center in Philadelphia which is very modern. Unfortunately, his clients are driving the historicist side of his ouvre given the spectacular success of 15 CPW that they all want to emulate. And since Stern is a big fan/student of Candela, he's not likely to stand in the way...

"Unfortunately?" I wish developers would hire Stern down here in Miami to design some high-end condos along Biscayne Boulevard and Brickell.

The Comcast Center is nice, and so is Ten Rittenhouse Square.

I don't think that Stern's classic, limestone structures would look good in Miami.

Stern's Century in LA or 1 St. Thomas in Toronto would fit in fine in Miami. But I'm glad he's doing plenty of work in NYC since his knowledge of its architecture is encyclopedic.

I live on the Upper East Side, and the last thing I want is the homeless people, huge business buildings, etc. coming to my block. That's what the area below Midtown is for! Midtown needs to spread south, not north, the north is fine being completely residential and low-key.
Upper East Side elitism summed up in one post!

What idiot would want to live near homeless people? Home value decreases, and no sane person wants to lose money.

I think classical limestone would fit well in Miami. But I was referring to stuff more along the lines of what hateman mentioned in California.

As for red brick, most likely not.

With the stupid ways people dress, sometimes I can't tell whether somebody is homeless in neighborhoods like Greenwich Village or Chelsea.

Please take the Miami and homeless talk elsewhere...

Someone on SSP pointed out that the ground level terrace is marked as 43 ft (above sea level) on the plans above. So I believe the tower may end up topping out at 780 ft tall rather than 824 ft... unfortunately.

I like the prospect of a roof terrace at 728ft.

Won't that get really windy? How high are the highest open air residential terraces in the city?
