Good news is that we were promised a reveal of a tower by Robert/Lord Arthur...ect (a fairly reliable source) by the end of this month!! Sometime in the next few days I would guess next week!! I think it will be both this and Shvo's infamous central park tower

No kidding. Put up or shut up.

The countless alternate accounts is tiresome as well.

It's amazing! This and One Vanderbilt has jumped high up on my excitement meter in a span of a week. I'm looking forward to see what the Shvo man will do. I can see Shvo pulling a Steinway on us all. A tower with modest beginnings ultimately pushed to great height & design.

I'm really looking forward to see what Shvo is gonna come up with. This is going to be epic IMO especially with the price Shvo dropped for this lot in terms of price per square foot which btw I believe is a record for lower manhattan.

I'm going to go out on a limb and I think he will try to emulate the formula of those billionaire row towers rising along the 57th street corridor with a skinny ultra luxury supertall. It will be catered to the 1% and it will be all about exclusivity basically located In a prime lot just steps away from the amazing WTC complex & brookfield place complex.

I think this tower will have a small no of units and I would not be surprised to hear a proposal within 1150' - 1200' range.

The shvo man took a little risk with the price paid which honestly leaves him no choice but to go this route. It would also be as a way to separate his project with the rest of the competition in lower Manhattan.

30 Park would be the competition but I expect Shvo to give a different offering compared to Robert Sterns tower for those who just have a different preference.

This tower has 360 sf vs Steinway's 316 sf for development which I honestly don't expect him to go as tall as the Steinway but who knows?? Only Shvo-man and Hashem knows.

I'm mixed... the last thing we need is another phallus for the billionaires.... I love the Central Park towers mostly because their design is just so great, their impact in the skyline is so dramatic. Even places like 217 W57th will have that Nordstrom base which will allow for some of us to get the exhilarating feeling of being in soaring towers like this... hopefully the soon to be revealed design will be as impressive and positive as we are being told. But not so thrilled with the emphasis on billionaires... we need less Tale of Two Cities, not more.

I'm hoping for a tower made of plated-platinum cladding. that shouldn't be too much to ask of the Svho man. Should be a doozy.

Amazing taste? Some do, but many are just shvo offs looking to be the next big thing. Trump with a bigger ego.. I would love to see ths and the Central Park towers built for the potentially great architecture but Shvo has no use for even those with nine figure bank accounts. The more I read about him the more I dislike him, a shameless self promoter who mainly made his fortune selling real estate, not building. I'm not a huge fan of class warfare and not a hater of development at all but so many projects in the Central Park area and now with his one that all but thumb their noses at the less than super rich... how high the prices go with the outlandish condos and the expensive shops and top of the line amenities. I am a big supporter of high rise development but until Shvo actually does something, and not just talks a good game I'm not going to let myself get Shvo excited.

These nice folks have the power to get developers to design the most innovative and beautiful designs for the city they plan to 'reside' in because they care deeply about its aesthetic development and the public realm that the riff-raff will have to deal with. No worries folks, it should be a great building, he's got this. Let's hope Billionaires keep their taste for NYC and we'll all get more beautiful designs like that baby on every corner. Hooray for Billionaires
I aree. It also creates jobs in the interior design and furniture business.
Most of these billionaires won't be home every day, but some might. Others buy them for relatives. They will all employ staff, which means new jobs.

It's so much building in New York that I can't really track it anymore. Amazing.
