If this rendering is anything close to reality (and with DBox it mostly is), we are talking about at 900 footer here.

So after 30 Park and now 50 West, I'm still waiting for 610 Lex to finally kick off. Slowly, but surely all the major towers are coming back to live. Gotta love New York.

You're not kidding!

I think it's around 800 with the crown. Though maybe it's taller since the first five floors may be empty space.

P.S.: It's a matter of time before the brown, 1970s structure next door is redeveloped. That tower is a market-rate rental.

Helmut Jahn's 50 West Street Tower Returns From the Dead


The building that's been planned for years was for a 65-story hotel-condo tower. Now the plan is for a 63-story tower minus that proposed hotel. Instead, the building will be mostly condos, and will also include retail, a restaurant, one floor of office space, and the usual luxury condo amenities—and "a city walkway traversing West Street will weave itself into the building's courtyard," the Journal explains.

As a 63 story condo tower, the height could either increase or they were able to reconfigure by simply eliminating two floors. Condo ceilings are usually higher than hotel ceilings, especially in high-end markets like Manhattan.

Looking good. So much better than the previous ready-to-collapse-looking building...

Hope this will start soon.

Punk is right ...

Quote:
to resurrect a 63-story residential project at 50 West St
1. They reduced the floor count.
2. The hotel component is gone, the tower is now fully residential (--> higher ceilings).
3. The rendering shows a tower high above other buildings.

Meaning, 50 West could very end up taller than anticipated.

Can't wait for this tower to start rising, lower manhattan needs more modern glassy buildings.

Is there any chance that this might become the new 5 or 6 WTC tower or 8 and so on.

This, along with 22 Thames street, will be a great addition to the Lower Manhattan skyline.

A near thin supertall 22 Thames would rise between 4 WTC and 50 West in that pic.

There's another supertall planned for the old St. Johns site on West St. just north of the WTC too.
