Torre Verre is more elegant a name. Sounds like a building a high-end jewelery company would set up their headquarters in.

Man do I hope they get it off the ground this time. This one will be an instant classic, the best designed building since the Chrysler building in NYC in my opinion.

That's great to hear! Although I have to admit I thought the ground breaking would be early 1st quarter.... like January!

100th page! Great! And this isn't even under construction yet!

Even though it's not one of my favorite buildings, it would definitely make my top 30. Reminds me of One World Trade Center's beacon combined with One57. Cool design.

A prominent Singapore real estate family backed by a group of Asian banks is providing more than $1 billion to revive plans to build one of Manhattan's tallest skyscrapers and new gallery space for the Museum of Modern Art.

The billionaire Kwee family, which controls property developer Pontiac Land Group, is making an equity investment of about $300 million in the metal and glass tower designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, according to people briefed on the deal....

The time has come people, I am beyond psyched!! That makes up tenfolds for that garbage Extell is putting out and I'm glad it'll take attention away from it too. The next greatest tower in NYC is about to rise!

$1.3 Billion. The Kwee Fam comes through! I expect this to start sometime in the 1st Q or early 2nd Q.
