Where has it been written that the height will increase? FX Fowle's website simply describes it as over 1,000 feet tall.

This graphic shows the mix of office and residential.

Yeah, it was mentioned here. I have no idea what their source for the claim was, and there hasn't been any other mention of the height increase from any other sources, so I wouldn't put much into it honestly.

But are they not choosing this design? If not, shame because it suits NYC very well.

The websites of the developer and the architect both show the same design. Personally, I think that the article is wrong, and this will remain around 300m. We have seen no evidence to the contrary, other than that unsubstantiated statement in an article about 432 Park.

My suspicion was right. It's still expected to be around 300m, as per this article in the 23 Jan 2013 NY Post:

Lucky ‘7’ at 3 Hudson Blvd.

BETWEEN THE BRICKS



The skyline in the Hudson Yards area is taking shape — at least on paper.

Here’s the first look at a new rendering (see right) for developer Joseph Moinian’s 1.7 million-square-foot tower at 3 Hudson Boulevard, bounded by the new park, the Javits Center and West 34th and 35th streets.

Designed by Dan Kaplan of FXFOWLE, the roughly 1,000 foot-high tower will turn slightly to catch the sunshine as well as views of the Hudson River and public spaces within Hudson Yards.

As the Manhattan street grid is slightly off the true north-south axis, Kaplan said the tower will align to the street grid at the base, and then do the twist.


WOW! Far West makeover king at 3 Hudson Blvd.


“It has a subtle, elegant spin and only rotates the 22 degrees as you go up,” said Kaplan. “It’s enough to give it a distinctive form, but not so much that it contorts the building.”

Thanks for posting. It's bad that it will be only about 1000 feet tall but its design more than makes up for it. The building's beautiful and will be a nice addition to the skyline regardless of height

There will be many other supertalls in the far West side.that exceed 400m. However, I never thought that this would be much taller than 300m.

This design is indeed great. And it has a prominent location with views towards midtown and New Jersey. Btw it can go for the highest (outdoor)pool in NYC.

Couple more renderings, and, "The FXFOWLE-designed skyscraper will have a slight twist, with the form rotating 22 degrees as it rises 1,000 feet..."

It's still hard for me to picture a massive wall of towers around the Rail Yards as viewed from the Hudson. I can't wait to enjoy that view.

This is just one of many

And when the Javits inevitably gets redeveloped, there wil be another wall of supertalls blocking off the ones that we currently know of. The far west side will be truly amazing when the dust settles 15 years from now.

It will be very hard to get rid of the Javitz. Many high up people in that industry are very keen on it staying in Manhattan, and not having to go to Queens which they consider the middle of nowhere. I'll eat my hat if Javitz is torn down in the next 15 years.

This is my crappy edit i've just done on paint

yes i know the building is the wrong way around, but it gives an impression of what the building will look like along with the hudson yards

It's around 300m, seeing as tower E is supposed to be 287m tall? so it's only slightly taller than that:
