Great to hear that the developer is having financial issues, looks like this monstrosity won't be going up any time soon.

Great to hear such ignorant comments; it wouldn't feel like SSC without them. The design is different from what we have seen, which is amazing in my opinion, and I don't know when we will see the new design which has been u/c for a long time now. In any case, this project is FAR from being cancelled.

No offense, but it's not ignorance because someone doesn't like the building.

There's no design to like or dislike. It was stated that what was in the renderings wasn't what was being built. Besides, the comment was caustic.

Niiiice. We must have around two dozen buildings with roofs over 800' tall in a few years.

The taller this is the better. I doubt it will look bad, even though we can't see the final product. It's in a part of the LM skyline that needs a tower. Every gap is being stuffed with skyscrapers here!

This should open in 2010 or 2011 with 123 Washington, 50 West Street, 99 Church Street, ect., and the whole WTC! Just lower Manhattan could take on any other skyline.

Only in New York (in N. America at least) could a "secret" 75-story tower go up.

QUOTED---->Ebola!!!

"""""This should open in 2010 or 2011 with 123 Washington, 50 West Street, 99 Church Street, ect., and the whole WTC! Just lower Manhattan could take on any other skyline."""""

I totally agree.....btw you dont have to build 1km high towers to have the best skyline, the best skyline must have IMO, vibrance, style divesifity, it must be iconic, the bldgs must have different usages and if you take a blink of an eye at a picture you MUST recognyse it....so I dont think this will be the fact for the upcoming BIGGGG skylines worldwide.....so lean back and watch the best skyline beeing even improoved....and see what else will come.....

NYC ROCKS!

Isn't it about time for some construction pics here?
These two were uploaded to the Wirednewyork forum on Dec, 1st 2007 by Greenwich Boy:




And this pano of Beekman Place is from p0psharlow and has been posted on Wirednewyork by Derek2k3. According to the photographer, it was taken on Dec, 18th 2007 or earlier:
image hosted on flickr

So let's see, what will go up finally... I hope it will be the planned Gehry design, that would bring a new aspect to the NYC skyline .

It looks really really close to my Uncle Mikes apartment at 90 Gold Street in Southbridge Towers, just across Gold Street from Pace University! I'll have to pay him a visit and find out more about this project.
