Agree, they are definitely really fast on this one. I counted 11 new floors in 5 weeks!!! That is like a floor every 3 days!

No, I'm 90% sure that's some other set of twin towers that was build or is u/c or approved now.

Thank you for correcting me. Have you any idea what the project might be?

It's called The Rushmore and is located about 20 blocks north of Silver Towers (River Place II).

Very attractive! These latter-day "twin towers" have a masculine 'New York' feel about them. I say: "thumbs-up!"

Be proud New York... nice addition.
In almost any other city,
these towers would be among the tallest.
In New York, ho hum, only 199m?

Just south of this, the development in the next few years, will make
ground zero look like a small construction project....
wow...

I wouldn't trust the site that said 199m/58fl since they are usually wrong with newer information, while unmatched with 4+ year old info. I think you have to pay to get the best service. The last thing I heard from a credible news source (NY Post or something) 6 to 9 months ago mentioned 60+ (61 or 63) floors, but it's still possible I can be confusing it with another midtown tower. It wasn't an even number and was in the lower 60s. But it's not a big deal now. Maybe I'll try to count floors on the newest rendering.

By the way, there seems to be about four or five or six twin towers in the city over 100m, and you can add another two to four pairs by 2020. By twin towers, I mean stuff like in this thread, not towers that look alike but one is smaller or has a different shape.

the height to the top floor is 184m and to the tip 199m - and what source is more credible than the developer...

...
The developer, Silverstein Properties, never said that. In fact, I just checked their site, and there's no info.

Emporis said that, and they are usually worng with new projects that have been around for long and have changed like this one.

Until it's posted on SP's site or someone from Silverstein Properties says it, it's likely off. I get the feeling that it may be slightly higher than we're expecting (like with all SP projects) since SP is building almost ALL of Manhattan's tallest skyscrapers. Since 2003, I don't think they've developed a skyscraper under 740 feet tall, and they are in charge of many large skyscrapers, mostly in LM. We should really be very greatful for Silverstein Properties.

The correct height for both towers is 199.13 m. This is from an e-mail I received from Kondylis & Partners. So blame them not Emporis, if you still think the height is wrong.

It is part of this 3-building development that is already under construction. The little building you question in the photo above is the small 25-floor building you see in the renderings. The next buildings soon to go up will be 34 and 43 floors.
