Good news, this is still alive.

The height has been increased and now it has over 80 floors.
I just hope the revised design doesn't look totally different.

Are you sure this news is really new? I remember hearing of a heightening a while ago.

That's really good news! I think this tower is essential to the development of Manhattan.

Jean Nouvel tower grows by seven stories

May 19, 2009 12:00PM

By Adam Pincus


Jean Nouvel and renderings of 53 West 53rd StreetDevelopers of a Jean Nouvel-designed skyscraper adjacent to the Museum of Modern Art have applied to build a tower seven stories taller than the proposal they originally unveiled two years ago.

The willowy design for the tower at 53 West 53rd Street the developer announced in the fall of 2007 was 75 stories tall, but the one included in a recent filing with the Department of City Planning and described on the developer's Web site is 82 stories high.

The building has been controversial, with Community Board 5 criticizing its height and bulk in a resolution in March 2008, calling it an "eccentric, asymmetrical tower."

The mixed-use project from Houston-based international developer Hines Interests will have 100 hotel rooms and 120 condominium units on the upper floors, and also include a 60,000-square-foot expansion of MoMa's galleries on the second to the fifth floors, the Hines Web site says. The number of hotel and condo rooms has not changed since 2007, but the amount of space for the museum has grown from 50,000 in 2007 to 60,000, according to the latest description on the Web site. A museum spokesperson put the figure at 70,000 square feet. Hines did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Although Hines unveiled the design in 2007, the firm made its first application under the Department of City Planning's uniform land use review procedure, or ULURP, on May 12, city records show. The company is seeking a special permit to transfer 136,000 square feet from the landmarked University Club at 1 West 54th Street to the development site, a city official said in an e-mail.

The developer is also seeking a special permit to waive requirements on height, setback, rear yard and pedestrian circulation through the application, the official said.

The ULURP application is expected to be discussed by the land use committee of Community Board 5 and the entire board in June, the board’s district manager, Wally Rubin, said.

From the developer's presentation to NYC on 18 May 2009:



PS: Between the GE Building and Cityspire, as depicted in this photo, foundations are currently being dug for another tower (157 W 57th St.) that will be approximately 300 meters tall. (It will be directly behind the building with the green, mansard roof.) Also, a site has been cleared for a 280 meter building nearby (52 E. 57th St.) , and demolition is about to begin for a third building (221 W. 57th St.) that will be at least 280 meters nearby. Two (i.e., 157 and 221 W. 57th St.) of those three towers will be designed by Christian de Portzamparc, as per his website. Thus, the Central Park skyline in a few years will have four new, super-tall towers.

Nouvel MOMA Tower Gets Height Boost !!!

Whilst many skyscraper projects around the world have been canned thanks to the continuing economic problems at least one New York is not only alive and kicking, but even growing in size on the drawing board as the development becomes ever more ambitious.

Sited on 53 West 53rd Street, the previous design featured a 75 storey tall 350 metre tower next to New York's Museum of Modern Art, but this has now been increased to 82 storeys and the height has pushed upwards to 400 metres plus.

Part of the reason for the increase is MOMA's ever expanding requirements for gallery space from 5,000 square metres in 2007 to 6,000 square metres in 2009 and now 7,000 square metres driven by the constant expansion of their art collection.

The asymmetric design with its steel exoskeleton remains, and as before it will continue to have both a luxury hotel and some of the swankiest apartments on offer in New York which are bound to be a hit due to the huge reputation that the Museum of Modern Art brand already boasts.

Developer Hines hopes to secure support from the influential Community Board 5 planning board in June 2009 and if successful this will be a huge boost to their attempts to build a tall building that has received much criticism in the Big Apple for not looking as New Yorkers expect their skyscrapers to appear.

If this goes ahead, as I HOPE it will, it has the distinct possibility of becoming one of the most architecturally significant towers built in this country in a LONG time.... especially at 400m ! ! **fingersstillcrossed**

It's a decent distance away from the ESB, which is about 20 blocks south of this.
