Oh yea, forgot about that site. 101 Murray St?? I think that has no height restrictions and I speculate they could also acquire more air rights from the Hudson River Park rezoning approval should they choose to do so.

With 30 park, 101 Murray, 50 West, 22 Thames, 111 Washington, 3 WTC and finally 2 WTC joining 1 & 4 WTC, there will be a sweet cluster of skyscrapers raising the profile of the skyline in this section of Lower Manhattan.

It is now September. I am eagerly awaiting for news about this mystery project that you have been suggesting and to learn of its whereabouts.

Yes! Even at 700' this tower will be quite prominent on the Lower Manhattan skyline.

Looking at the rendering for one more time I still think this tower is close to 800 feet (I mentioned this earlier in this thread).

Where? I just check permits and I see nothing other than 714ft. Does he mean with crown? How did he get that number? 783 ft would be great for this if this is the case and I hope that figure does not include the crown.

He didn't source that information: http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showth...l=1#post436396

But is a generally reliable contributor to that site. Wouldn't surprise me in the least if he was correct.

And not just because of its size, also because of its shiny appearance.

See my post directly above. DBOX really makes great renderings.

Boy I so hope this tower hits 800'. It's a lovely design.

I'd say this is the last of the frozen in 2008 due to Financial crisis sites in NYC. Not bad at all!

Awesome renders!

Also it's one of the first renders I've seen where 1WTC has both the unclad spire and the white satellite dishes in the rings.
