That reminds me of similar project in Seattle. Fifth and Columbia Tower which will be little over First United Methodist Church. http://www.fifthandcolumbia.com/art.html

Not sure if it's a render or not, but it is a real park, and a very new one at that. It's called Hunter's Point South Park, in Long Island City. Curbed has a bunch of pics here. It just opened last month.

Extell Withdraws 'Casa de Cantilever' Plans For Church, Will Rework Unholy Proposal



Quote:
[...]

Because of the backlash, Extell and the church agreed to hold off on development until at least the end of September. The cantilevered condo plans were withdrawn, and Extell is drafting a new proposal. They hired preservation experts Beyer Blinder Belle to design the new building, and in a statement, the developer said they want to "find a solution that preserves the church and is acceptable to all parties." Last Wednesday, the local community board passed a resolution to designate both the church and surrounding buildings as landmarks.

Walker Tower's $55M Penthouse Attempts Downtown Manhattan Record



Quote:
Walker Tower already boasts the second most expensive condo in Downtown Manhattan—the $34 million penthouse combo that an unidentified buyer signed a contract for back in December. It's also going for the Downtown condo record, trying to unseat the $42 million penthouse in 18 Gramercy Park with its $55 million Penthouse One, which will officially hit the market today, according to The Real Deal. The 6,000-square-foot 5BR, 5.5BA pad occupies the entire top floor of the building and will be move-in ready by the end of the year. It features 360-degree views, 479 square feet of terrace space, heated flooring, and monthly fees of just over $9,000.
PH1 listing for $55 million:


Or PH2 which lists at $45 million:




Pick whichever one you like!

Heh, I like that practicality is somehow factoring into this decision.

This 20-Story Building Is Going Up on Amsterdam Avenue



Quote:
Equity Residential has had a 20-story building in the works at 170 Amsterdam Avenue since late 2011. Brace, neighbors, for New York YIMBY has the reveal of just what that tower, designed by Handel Architects, will look like. The 185-foot building will contain 235 apartments. YIMBY, for one, is over the moon about the design, which he describes as "stellar" and "a project that can translate forward-thinking design into a human-scaled and attractive final product." We'll reserve judgement until we have a little reality to compare to the rendering.
I knew something was up with those columns!
