If a tower is built on this scope it will truly usher New York City into the 21st century. The World Trade Center is being reconstructed, but the complex has existed since the early 1970s and by the time hudson yards is completed the Empire State Building will be nearly a century old. A new megatall is what this city needs to cement it's status as the A++ city among the rising stars of the east.

I love that building (what's the name?), and would be happy to see something similar rise here someday. It's certainly sleek enough to fit in with the other ultra-modern towers on the Far West Side... but there's also something industrial to it that feels appropriate for the area around the repurposed rail yards.

It is the Zifeng tower in Nanjing if I'm not mistaken.

The idea of the tower is pretty good, it is just we need to find out our and developer's resolve to go over the symbolic height of 1776 ft. Though I think it is long overdue to change maximum restrictions of height from 2000 ft to 3000 ft. it is ridiculous that we are stuck in 1930s with these rules.

An FAA height increase would only be 'overdue' if projects have been cancelled because they were limited to 2000ft. I don't think a single tower in the US has a: been seriously proposed for over 2000ft, or b: had a financial need/viability to go over 2000ft but hasn't progressed because of this limit.

The truth of the matter is the 2000ft limit (which isn't really a limit, as the FAA has discretionary powers to allow structures over that height anyway) only exists because there's no reason to change it.

Nobody is clamoring for it to be changed because nobody is building, or planning to build, anything over 2000ft. So why contest it?

The moment a serious developer comes along with the financial need to build over 2000ft (which would only ever be in Manhattan because of density. Which would then be denied anyway because of NYCs overly crowded airspace and a history of plane strikes) then the issue will be looked at and probably updated.

The only structures intersecting this limit right now are radio masts and there's a real and actual need to be considerate with their height due to small aircraft and other such things colliding with these less visible structures in the middle of Goddamn nowhere.

If some Saudi Oil baron, or a Chinese dictator, or perhaps some American real estate mogul, wanted to build a Tower of Babel in the middle of downtown Manhattan. And they wanted to go over 2000ft. Then by the very outline of their ambition they would get it done. If you have enough money to build a tower that is 2000ft high, then you must also have enough money to hire some good lobbyists to get it done. This is a non issue. It's used to excuse the widening gap between tall buildings abroad and the (perceived) stagnation in the US. It's a misdirect to cover up the terrible human rights issues in the countries that can build such monoliths.

MJM + A Architects Unveil Design for Hudson Spire –The Tallest Building in North America

1,800 foot multi-use luxury commercial and residential tower will be an integral part of NYC’s Hudson Yards Development. Tower will also be as the largest building in North America.

http://www.prweb.com/releases/2014/02/prweb11578927.htm

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 17, 2014

MJM + A Architects PLLC, an award-winning Manhattan-based architectural practice, recently unveiled their plans for the construction of Hudson Spire, a 110 story, 1,800 foot tall tower that would become the tallest building in North America.

The structure will include approximately 1.2 million square feet for high-end retail, office, hotels, and residences in the heart of Hudson Yards, a dynamic new neighborhood and cultural center in development on 10th Avenue from 34th to 40th Street, on the site of what was formerly the West Side Rail Yards. Hudson Spire would be on a section of the new Hudson Boulevard, overlooking a park-like public space that is the centerpiece of the neighborhood. The building will face the Hudson River and be less than two blocks from the Jacob Javits Convention Center.

Michael J. Macaluso, Principal and Founder of MJM + A Architects, was retained by the property owners and their exclusive real estate broker Massey Knakal to come up with a grand design for the building. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that architects dream of,” says Macaluso. “When the senior executives of Massey Knakal, James Nelson and Bob Knakal, and Anthony Volpe of the Rosenthal Group first laid out for us the challenge of creating an 1,800 foot high mixed-use tower for Hudson Yards, we were both thrilled and inspired. As architects, our job is to interpret the dreams of others. The creative geniuses of our design studio, led by my partner Keith Lucas, came up with a stunning vision of a vibrant glass structure that literally jumps from its bases and soars to the stars.”

Hudson Spire is slated to have 110 stories, offering a unique combination of commercial and residential space. Floors one through five will host upscale restaurants and retailers, on top of which will be 15 stories of office space. Floors 21through 85 are designated for three separate high-end hotel properties, each with approximately 200 guest rooms, lavish amenities, and event/conference space. The top 25 floors will be luxury residences, with one or two units per floor, concierge service, private elevators, glass walls on all four sides, and stunning views that extend from the Statue of Liberty to the George Washington Bridge and beyond.

“Hudson Yard represents the last frontier in undeveloped Manhattan property,” says Macaluso, “and Hudson Spire will be right in the middle of this dynamic new neighborhood with all its cultural attractions, entertainment, and river views. And its close proximity to the Javits Center makes it an excellent choice for Fortune 500 executive travelers.”

Design-wise, Hudson Spire follows the “super tall / super thin” strategy of other recent luxury high rise residences, mandated by the space, cost and zoning realities of Manhattan property. Starting at a base width of approximately 100 feet, the edifice will be physically set back as it rises, tapering to just 75 feet in width at the top floors. The structural challenges of high winds and complex elevator requirements are solved with a hybrid reinforced concrete and steel frame, encased by alternating reflective and non-reflective high powered glass.

“There’s not a lot of façade to work with,” says Keith M. Lucas, Partner and Project Designer for MJM + A Architects, “so we wanted to make it visually interesting. We decided, rather than go with a typical singular surface, let’s do something different and more dynamic. Let’s vary the composition of the glass color and reflective property, with lots of intersecting angles that play off one another, so that sunsets and city views will look different on one face of the building than on the others.”

At 1,800 feet, Hudson Spire will be even taller than the recently-constructed Freedom Tower at the World Trade Center. “Since 9/11, the city has gone through a long healing process. The owners of the property want to create a building that looks forward, not back, that will uplift the city but is unrelated to 9/11,” says Macaluso. “Hudson Spire reflects the dawn of a new age, emphasizing the global character of New York City as a business hub, a tourist destination, and the many foreign residents who now call it home. Hudson Spire will be a welcome addition to the Manhattan skyline, and to the spirit of the city itself.”

Oh the possibilities! If I had to make just one wish with the Skyscraper Gods! This would be it. It would be a fantastic center piece in the emerging Hudson Yards.

Obviously because of the smaller floor plates, the kind of offices they could offer would be for Hedge funders, Law firms and Technology firms & maybe some foreign gov't offices.

So here's my wish...

I wish for a ambitious foreign entity to buy this plot asap and use this design with a few modifications here and there. What an opportunity it will be to build an icon for NYC.

The Hudson Yards should be located on the South side of the Empire State Building, except for the Spire (should be located on the North side of 34th street).

So essentially it's ready to go... just needs a developer! It could be closer to reality than people realize...and with the Sherman site across the street that can go 1,300-1,400 ft... wow what awesome possibilities for that area!!!!!! There HAS to be some ambitious developer who realizes what a coup having the tallest building in North America, right in midtown Manhattan, would be!!!!!!!!!!
