What is that beautiful older scraper across the street in this pic by TowersNYC?



This render has been posted many times by now. It shows that 1 Bryant Park will be an amazing scraper,
quite different to many of the boxes that will surround it. IMO Its style should be known as fractal architecture...



Loving this render of the base too:



Also, anyone know about the theatre that will be included? There is a lot of info in this link and newer renders too,
but I'm a bit confused about what it says about the theatre/s:

One Bryant Park

...

Hey Muse....

This older skyscraper is "The Bush Tower"

29 Story Gothic style skyscraper, built in 1917 !!!

Architect Helmle & Corbett

The building site is only 15 m wide and 27.5 m deep, and the architects remarked that they wanted to make the building "a model for the tall, narrow building in the center of a city block." And it was regarded as such for the next decade of feverish urban construction.

The style of the building follows the "traditional" early skyscraper style with its Gothic appearance -- English this time. On the side facaces, trompe l'oeil brickwork creates vertical "ribs" with a fake "shade" pattern to enhance the verticality. The windows are concentrated to the north and south facades, as well as to a recessed mid-facade light-well on the east facade.

I'm glad to see this start rising, it looks like a quality building that will contrast well with the surroundings. Does the height include the antenna?
