That render is underwhelming. It's like Foster's 425 Park but not beautiful in every way.

What we have seen so far looks like a massing made to look descent. Similar to what they did with Nordstrom, after all they are around the same height. According to Shovo who is in now way a reliable source. however Yimby/baby back ribs had hinted that Nordstrom would lose its title as tallest residential building in the world, likely this or 80 south street.
BTW I counted about 70-75 floors shown in the render. I would assume that there are about 3-5 missing. So we can expect maybe 80 floors.

Are you seriously complaining about a photo that is so zoomed in you can hardly see anything? Wow are you quick to judge.

It's NOT Shvo's tower. Even in the link it's clearly a collaboration between the LeFrak group and Vornado. This is where the vaunted "7 star hotel"(as if we needed something more in your face and snot nosed to those making less than $10 million,lol than a 4 or 5 star one) is supposed to go along with of course multimillion dollar writeoffs, er, condos for the super duper rich.

So is there anything sure about this since they are demolishing the existing buildings?
I would like to see something nice here even if I'm 'worried' about Central Park view from the Top of The Rock once the Billionaire Row will be completed (111, Nordstrom, 220, One57 and this)

Is this even a thing? We've heard nothing about a location or any firm plans for this spectral tower.

Tempted to pull thread...

I'm not sure it's a thing. This whole thing was based on comments by Shvo about building a tower around 57th st, but with no specific site, no specific anything, and the fact that we shouldn't expect much action around 57th street for some time, I'm not sure we should be wasting space on this one

I sure hope it's not a thing anymore, after seeing what Shvo wants to put up downtown.

I agree. It's also very late in the cycle for a major new tower amongst the many already underway. I'm going to archive this thread until we get something solid about this.
