It will go in this, already dense, section of the city. Right behind those two buildings at the front of the photo.

By the way, Extell has cleared (and is currently excavating) a huge site at 153-161 West 57th Street that will house another tower of 800 to 1,000 feet which is likely to be designed by Portzamparc. It will be visible in this cluster as well.

NYC RULES!!!!

I love the 'exposed beams'. They criss cross every which way, makes for a good effect.

spectacular tower, really amazing. I have no words to describe it. This is a super modern tower (gotham city type) although it does not abuse glass (like the towers built in dubai or most of the world). unique.

thank you new york for re-inventing the concept of skyscrper.

It has some kind of gothic air that makes it imposing.. am I the only one to feel it?

just look at it, it blends perfectly.

just because it isn't the usual boxy skyscraper doesn't mean it doesn't fit in new york..

Agreed. NYC is still a great skyscraper city, this skyscraper will only help it become better.

I wonder how many supertalls are proposed, approved, u/c, and built in NY now. There has to be around 20 now. There won't be a concrete number for a few years. Many more new ones will pop up, and I mean many.
