Wow, this is beautiful. Like they say a highly desireable and prime location. Unobstructed views of Central Park. This will be very luxueus, The facade of that proposal looks somewhat like 111 W 57th.
The only negative thing here is that it's views towards Midtown will be blocked by the 628 ft Central Park Place on the same block.
Also interesting piece about the air rights.

Added bonus: blocking [subsidized] views of Central Park from 514 11th Ave!

Nobody is entitled to a Central Park view.

The shape and look remind me of Steinway Tower.

Purchased for $11.5M in 2000. This article estimates it will sell for $88.9M:

Nope, just a compilation of the ones in development. You can see 6 Columbus in the middle close to 15 cpw, not a huge impact visually

what i dislike about the current boom is, that it looks like it will create a plateau at a higher height, without anything really sticking out at all. I really hope a megatall will be proposed soon in the middle of midtown, to create a dramatic point within the skyline.

Next to the fat Time Warner Center this one looks so slender.

Btw 1710 Broadway seems way too tall for just 60 floors right?


Here is another angle of this.

Nowhere near a plateau. There would need to be significant development of buildings that are between the heights of current proposed peaks (Nordstrom and 111) and the existing plateau for that to happen.

I really can't see how you thing the current slate or proposals creates a plateau...

I think that, especially befor these last supertalls, there was a plateau in Midtown. It is about 230 meters.

I wouldn't worry, after Midtown has developed a 1,400 - 1,500ft tall plateau, a megtall will be built, there's no way around it.
