Should it be that tall? It's only 50 feet taller than 0ne57.

This is old version..New one should be tall as that setback on top of the pic..That's why I cut out the crown which won't exist in new design..

^ Which is a good thing, I think. The old design seemed too tall, somewhat inappropriate at this location. The new one is just right to keep proportions of this part of Manhattan.

If that great view is going be blocked it should at least be a 2000 footer.

A 2000 footer would look dull and out of place in this location.

There isn't enough room, on the plot for a 2000 footer. It would be the thinnest building in the world. And the wind would blow it over.

LOL I heard back from the NIMBY neighborhood Association:

Quote:
Daly Reville daly.reville:

show details Jul 25

Thank you for your comments about the MoMA torre verre. I appreciate your concern that neighborhood voices not become a backward look to days gone by, and I hope that the west 54-55 street block association does that with the help of neighbors and citizens. The height is really the concern of the developer, more revenue per dollar paid for the land. The community must address the street on which the building sits and which people use to move about. Unlike the Empire State Building and the Chrystler Building, Torre Verre will sit on a narrow city street, not an avenue or double wide block like 42nd and 34th streets. So the community must ask the developer to address the street level impact of the new structure. Moreover, please walk down 53rd and 54th, see the MoMA facade resembling a giant container dropped in the heart of midtown. This is the issue for New York. Are our streets to be transformed from beautiful boulevards and side streets enhanced by glorious buildings like the one you mentioned? Or are we to suffer more dead streets of loading docks and blank walls.

West 54-55 Street Block Association
So, over perfectly fixable street level crap, these mooks are holding a great tower hostage! Why am I not surprised?

It is also much closer, so it looks taller.

One Step Closer To Tower Verre

Folk Art Museum’s Bad-News Day: Sale to MoMA Consummated



The flagship building of the American Folk Art Museum (with the red banner) on its last day. On left (behind the white "MoMA" fence) is the vacant lot where the Nouvel-designed MoMA/Hines tower may eventually rise. On the right is MoMA.

The financially struggling American Folk Art Museum (AFAM), which permanently closed its 53rd Street building to the public on July 8, closed its deal on Friday to sell the flagship facility to the Museum of Modern Art for $31.2 million. AFAM was given 90 days from the closing to clear out, making way for the MoMA Real Estate Juggernaut. It will continue to operate at what used to be its satellite facility, a much smaller space near Lincoln Center.

So does that mean that in about 90 days, Tower Verre will officially be starting?

^ Got insider info? Can't wait.


I hope they'll do without the "top crown". I wouldn't shed a tear for the top of the initial renderings, if it falls prey to the height cut, that's a good thing.

Not gonna happen. The approval is contingent on the crown remaining in the design, albeit at a reduced height.
