Very likely not the final design. It was from a while ago.

Guys, it has been mentioned so many times that there's no actual rendering of the building yet. We know so little of this development, so please don't overreact.

THANK YOU!

Good god it gets annoying to have to keep explaining this... it's mentioned about 7 times every page that this is not the final design.

Is there any official statement regarding the height? Last time I saw.. a height reduction was mentioned or is it only based on rumors?

You're the man ILNY. How did you manage to get that shot? I've tried a bunch of times and it's almost impossible to take a good look at the pit.

Seems like this one joins the Central Park Tower in that it's under construction but with no official renderings.

lookie what's on New Valley LLC's website... this confirms the rounded corners rumor. New Valley LLC is a co-developer with Shvo and Bizzi&Partners

They list the tower at 60 stories and "900+" feet.

Those renders confirm the floorplan that was posted time ago, with the rounded corners. Seems like we'll see a rather interesting and good design here! Don't know about the height tho, but specifically in this case, it is not so important because of the spiral in WTC. Sounds promising!

The third picture they have in that link shows a view of 4WTC and it looks pretty clear that the tower will be, at the very least, as tall as it.
