Can't believe I never saw this one. Design's kind of weird but in a good way. It looks great I think and definitely an icon. Different from all the towers around but who says that different has to be bad? Hope it gets built

Anyone open to a time-share investment?

One of the homes is going to cost 70 million! I know it's an amazing building in the world's greatest city...but holy crap! Who has that much money to throw around on one piece of property?

Properties sell in NYC for $70 million, but normally those are townhouses/triplex I think.

The new rendering still doesn't make it look any better.

We need supertalls, not another 500-1000 ft. Skyscraper.

The design is quite nice, though.

This will have a huge impact on the skyline; both for being unique and quite tall. Don't complain.

New York has plenty of 1000+ towers in the works, anyway.

By spire, and there's a spire on everything throughout the world these days, it's well over 1,000 feet. Besides, I wouldn't want a supertall in this location for these reasons
-Extremely small plot size
-Waterfront location would overwhelm the skyline
-It's the perfect height for the spot!

In the winter, but have you ever been to NY in the summer? It's unbearable the majority of the time. Even today it's almost Autumn it was still very warm (Wasn't it beautiful out today??) It can be a little ice skating rink in the winter

I can't wait for it to go up, it'll revolutionize the way residential towers are done.

I expect at least one of these units to break the record for most expensive Manhattan apartment too. Currently, an apartment in the Time Warner Center has the record at $51 million, one of these should top that.

It's going to be an interesting building, too bad none of us will get even near it though...I wish it had some sort of public amenity.

sfenn1117 it was gorgeous out, should be the rest of the week, gotta love that September weather.

^I thought it was going to have a cultural attraction at the base, savethewtc. Or maybe that has been changed.
