I'd say 87.33'

I was worried that they did away with the metal frame and changed it to black panels based on recent renderings but this picture of the mock curtain wall reassured me. Maybe the black panels are for the crown.
I still can't wait to see full and updated renders.

Each individual engineer on this job must be a leader in their field. The structural rendering is almost more striking than the real thing. Masterpiece.

It is a beautiful tower to be, definitely. The only not so intriguing aspect of this building is that it's not going to make any new records, not with any of it's strategic measures anyway... I mean it's not going to be the tallest or the most massive or the skinniest or with the highest outdoor observation deck or anything like that (except beauty), that would really make it the cutting edge or state of the art or a pioneering skyscraper in any structural aspect, like so many other scrapers that are coming up today in New York... This is probably just my own ignorance talking about this project, but that is how I feel at the moment.
It's great, and a wonderfull design, but it lacks something really special/ groundbreaking to really be the number uno in New York for me...

P.S. I hope it moves to the U/C category soon.

To me, the only thing matters ist number one in the world. Sadly there is no
building in New York competing in it really. Ok, the residential towers in
slenderness maybe, but I might be not so focused on that.

What's left is bauty, and Tower Verre got a ton of it.
I think along with 22Sprouce Street, One57 and Steinway Tower we have a new
generation of skyscrapers here. They probably will be known as the skyscrapers
of the epoch of the beginnging 21st century were beauty and not size mattered
- and I kinda like it


I also can't wait to see this beeing constructed

As a skyscraper fan I would much rather be on a top floor of a tower that's "not too" tall and in the "middle of everything" for that feeling of being surrounded by skyscrapers everywhere. Rather than "being on top" of the world looking down on a city like an ant heap. TV's location for that is perfect (even though it's a terrible neighborhood to live in) because potentially every cluster will be very distinct and clearly visible, be that downtown, or HY or 57th st, Madison SQ Park and of course the future Midtown East rezoning.

I'm with you. So much of New York's allure is the way it stretches stratospherically above you, and skyscrapers are designed to be looked up at, or at least over at, across vast gulfs of open air.

I agree with you guys, I'll take the city view anytime over a park view, especially considering TV's location, which is right in the middle of midtown. And for the lucky ones buying in the building, they're next to the Moma, 5th ave, Madison ave, the Pierre, the Four seasons, Begdorf, Saks....much better location for shopping and dining than those 57th st towers if you ask me.
Besides even for Central Park views I'm not a fan of the views from Central Park South, you're pretty much staring at the park going north and the boring uptown skyline. The best Central Park views in my opinion are on the East and West side where you get the park view as well as the city view.

Hitting new heights: Midtown’s most coveted towers of power


By Adam Bonislawski
February 25, 2015

Quote:
New York real estate’s new number to beat? One hundred million dollars.

That was the closing price in December for an 11,000-square-foot duplex penthouse at Extell Development’s One57 condo building.

Handily setting the record for the city’s most expensive single-family-home sale, the deal served as a reminder of Midtown Manhattan’s place at the white-hot core of New York’s luxury housing market.

And with a veritable forest of 1,000-plus-foot-tall residential high-rises sprouting in the area, things are certain to stay scorching.

Indeed, the asking price for a new 21,504-square-foot triplex penthouse in the iconic Sony building at 550 Madison Ave. was just revealed as $150 million. For one apartment.

The rise is inevitable, notes Steven Rutter, director of Stribling Marketing Associates: “If you look at New York City as the center of the universe — Midtown is the center of New York City.”

A trend of superluxury residential high-rises like including 432 Park Avenue are sprouting in Midtown are drawing the world’s wealthiest buyers to NYC.
Along with its 1,004-foot-high, 94-unit One57, Extell has started construction on the 1,775-foot-tall Nordstrom Tower, just down the way at 225 W. 57th St. Macklowe Properties, meanwhile, is putting the finishing touches on its 1,396-foot-high, 104-unit 432 Park Avenue condo tower, where a penthouse is in contract for $95 million. A few blocks south, the 1,058-foot-tall, Jean Nouvel-designed 53W53 tower is prepping for a spring sales launch.

And back on the 57th Street corridor, JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group are at work on 111 West 57th Street, which is slated to be one of the tallest condo buildings in the world, at 1,421 feet high, and also one of the skinniest.

Developer ambition, starchitect power and global demand have turned Midtown into one of the most coveted residential neighborhoods in the city, and, by extension, the world.

“In the next two months, I’m off to Săo Paulo, Beijing, Hong Kong, Delhi, Rome and Paris, and they all want to buy in New York,” says Lee Summers, senior global real estate advisor at Sotheby’s.

.....“These sites just don’t come into existence overnight,” says Anthony Mannarino, executive vice president for Extell. “There were a number of parcels we had to assemble. We had to move tenants, relocate businesses and so forth. But [Extell president] Gary [Barnett] had a vision that if you could assemble the sites and assemble the air rights, you could have unprecedented views of Central Park.”

Extell wasn’t alone. In fact, in the case of its follow-up, super high-rise Nordstrom Tower, the company’s vision ran smack against another developer’s lofty Midtown dreams. Vornado Realty Trust’s original plans for its 950-foot-high condo tower at 220 Central Park South threatened to obstruct the Nordstrom building’s all-important park views. In an effort to block the development, Barnett and Extell purchased the lease to a parking garage Vornado needed to tear down in order to build.

The two parties eventually settled, with Vornado paying Extell $194 million for the garage and related rights, and both developers agreeing to shift their buildings slightly so each would have a view onto Central Park.

Extell wasn’t the only developer with a bone to pick with 220 CPS. As author Michael Gross reported last year, the Zeckendorfs were none too pleased with how similar initial renderings for the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building were to their 15 CPW, also created by Stern.

The brothers, meanwhile, have their own Stern-designed, 15 CPW copycat underway at 520 Park Avenue.

The limestone-clad, 54-story, 31-unit condo tower is scheduled for completion in 2017 and includes a 12,394-square-foot triplex penthouse priced at $130 million, which could shatter One57’s $100.5 million record.
