Without sense of scale that new tower looks large, but then you see the buildings next to it and you understand its a delicate flower amongst trees.

Landmarked 1867 Nomad Building May Recieve Blade Runner-Like Addition



Quote:
Another iteration of a towering addition to a landmarked NoMad building has emerged from the 3-D visualization wizzes at Avoid Obvious. YIMBY broke the news back in March of a 20-story tower designed by the Spector Group and Think Architecture atop a charming commercial building at the northwest corner of West 27th Street and Broadway.

Both iterations of Spector Group’s design reveal a clean visual break between old and new: a restored neoclassical fašade juxtaposed with a setback glassy prism rising above. The new reveal shows a more sculptural and chiseled tower rather than a Trump SoHo-like prism of clean vertical lines. It’s unclear if this proposal is still on the table and if the Spector Group remains involved.

Vision: 1865 Broadway



Quote:
October 8, 2014

YIMBY featured a sneak peek of 1865 Broadway’s potential earlier this year, with renderings by Danny Forster Design Studio depicting the reconfiguration and vertical extension of the building. Since then, the site’s current occupant — the American Bible Society — has elected to leave the location for a new building, opening the possibility for a skyline-altering icon to take its place.

Now, we have the first firm look at a proposal for the site, designed by Goldstein Hill & West, which would involve the total demolition of the old structure. The new building would stand approximately 40 stories tall, but the height would be accentuated by palatial ceilings, like many other new skyscrapers rising across Manhattan. GH & W could not be reached for comment, but the tower appears to rise between 600 and 700 feet, and would stand on the corner of Broadway and West 61st Street.

[...]

The site’s development potential measures approximately 300,000 square feet, and will likely include retail along Broadway. Even 15 Central Park West, where a penthouse sold for $88.5 million in 2013, has active retail in its frontage on Broadway.

[...]

Demolition at 5Pointz graffitti art center continues unabated. Note how roughly half the building's ground footprint has disappeared within the past month.

Vision: Supertall Possible at 1710 Broadway
http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/10/visi...-broadway.html





read entire article in link

Quote:
YIMBY came across the first renderings for a potential tower coming to 1710 Broadway, on the northeast corner of West 54th Street, which could also become the street’s first actual supertall, potentially topping the 1,000-foot mark.
Quote:
the Municipal Art Society’s “Accidental Skyline” map reveals approximately 350,000 square feet of unused air rights within the surrounding block. That number is one of the highest totals along Broadway, and would invite the possibility of a tower like the one depicted in the renderings, which stands approximately 80 stories tall. Goldstein Hill & West is the architect

Three new towers on Broadway in two days. That's pretty cool.

Too bad all three proposals scrape the bottom of the barrel. 1710 Broadway is a fine limestone building too. Aside from height, the proposal is no improvement.

Thank you! Concerning Moynihan Station, is that what's going on there?

Here is an oft-forgotten part of the city skyline that will become much more noticeable in the near future:

1010 Park Avenue

Rather than a shallow overhang, 1010 Park Avenue would sheath the neighboring Park Avenue Christian Church within a transparent wall of glass, replacing the original rectory with the new 20-story tower, designed by Keith Goich.
