It's a very elegant building. From the website http://www.timeequities.com/dev-50west.cfm:

50 West Street



Quote:
When it is complete, 50 West Street will be a 65-story mixed-use tower and one of the tallest mixed-use hotel and residential buildings in New York and a skyline defining landmark. Consisting of a 5 star luxury hotel on floors 1-14 and residential condominiums on floors 15-66, the building will offer a variety of ground floor retail to enhance street level activity and neighborhood interaction. The proposed project will boast unparalleled views of the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor due to its unique location and height.

50 West Street will include an important public urban plaza connecting West and Washington Streets in Lower Manhattan. The plaza will provide a much needed pedestrian thoroughfare to enhance the connection of lower Manhattan to Battery Park City.

The building will be a modern glass tower designed by internationally renowned architect Helmut Jahn. Interiors will feature a sophisticated modernist design with a warm color palette, the use of high-end woods and stone finishes and European designed furnishings.

Continuing with Time Equities’ commitment to sustainable design, the building anticipates receiving a LEED Gold rating, the nations premiere benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings.

Nice to see this building finally getting the permit. It's phallic-shape is quite a refreshing change from the boxes, and the crown looks interesting

Well, the pdf- brochure you posted and their website both state the 65 storey figure, so it's very unlikely that there's been a height reduction. It seems to me they just increased the number of hotel rooms and the apartments got a little bigger.

I've got mixed feelings about this building. It is beautiful but kinda small. I had hoped to see another supertall in Lower Manhattan

Lol, you can't seriously expect every new residential / hotel tower in New York to be a supertall. On the contrary, you should be glad that this city is building altogether given the bad economy and also when compared to other major U.S. cities. And btw this tower started construction back in 2008, the foundations are already done.

Not so. First, this building will be built in a very narrow field. Another thing would not be appropriate to build a super tall so close to the WTC complex. We must also see that this is not a project dedicated to high (compared to The Drake) but because it is a good place to make money.

This is a very good building, its design will be excellent for this area. And we still have to take into account its small increase in height (from 700 feets to 714). Can not wait for this project is built, I have to model it on my google earth.

I think a supertall close to the WTC would be awesome. The WTC completely ignores height so it kinda deserves to be in the shadow of a taller building next to it

But I agree that this project will make a lot of money. A residential/hotel tower is rare in Lower Manhattan iirc the only other residential skyscraper there is the Beekman

Well, you want it to fit in with its surroundings. I'm not sure a supertall right below the WTC would look all that good. On another note, I'm glad to see the area of LM below the WTC getting some attention. It seemed like that area was dead in terms of large developments.

I agree.

What I liked about the old WTC is that the towers stood well aboven the surrounding area, they were visible from all directions. True icons and symbolic for New York.
The new WTC will be like that as well, but in a bit different as there will be 4 towers.
Construction of other supertalls nearby would not do justice to that as they might (partially) obscure the view.

This building is over 200m which is tall for most cities other than NY, HK and Shanghai. Also, the developer can only build as tall as the air rights allow. This is a thin tower on a small site, so the expected height is the maximum permitted.
