That would be nice. But hey, it's going to be a supertall by roof height, so it's fine with me.
This one will sure stick out given the location.

Will This 998-Foot Tower of Gardens Rise On South Street?



Quote:
While we know for sure that Santiago Calatrava's tower will never rise at 80 South Street, another firm has been creating and sharing designs for a different tower at the location. Since last May, Morali Architects have been posting renderings on their Facebook page. Originally, the plans showed a 780-foot tall tower mixed-use tower with cascading gardens and a solar panel skin. Now, New York YIMBY spotted their latest iteration, a 998-foot tall skyscraper bisected by skygardens that would have a boutique hotel on the bottom and apartments on the top.

No applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings for 80 South Street, but Anthony Morali, via Facebook, said that the project is in "the review phase only" and they are "finalizing certification with City Planning." He continues:

Quote:
We are still in the process of attracting a a possible hotel partner. Also there are many facets of the project that still need to be addressed. Environmental. DEP. Structural System. (We are exploring the use of the COBIAX concrete system which uses 33 percent less concrete and a potential LEED component ). Again although no public review is required, there will be numerous filings and we will keep you updated.

Seems that thing are going pretty smoothly here. Hopefully they'll get a hotel in quickly and then this tower could rise soon.

Just one thought. This tower has more or less the same height as One57. We all know what impact One57 makes on the skyline, can you imagine what impact this tower will have on LM, considering itīs location is on a plot in the first row of skypscrapers on the east river side.

Great design, but the gardens had better not be visible. If they are, I hope we get a new design that isn't killed by greenery. Why do all these developers like to ruin a great building with explosed plants?

Shanghai Tower is the last tower you can compare with this design.
