This is the New York project that excites me the most. The design is gorgeous. It will rival Chrysler as New York's best skyscraper, and one of the best in the world. I hope it's realised, and soon!

The Chrysler building isn't the best skyscraper in NYC. And this building could rate in the top 10.

Not really. All I said was it isn't the best, which is a fact.

Not even the best supertall, that title belongs to the king. But that another story for another day. Tower Verra could be a great building, depending how it looks from all sides.

The list you found is compiled by the American Society of Civil Engineers. The list is about engineering NOT design.

Almost not worth posting, but what the hey. A quote from Jean Nouvel on Curbed.

http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2011/0...el_opening.php

"...And, on the status of the proposed MoMA Tower Verre: "I can say nothing. I'm waiting. I hope to see some answers here in the next month; I hope." "

Hines latest statement was that it is choosing from various equity partners. If Nouvel is considering timeframes as imminent as one month, that sounds pretty positive to me. What other city in the world is building several 300m+ skyscrapers priced from $5k/sf and up?

Not New York. Not so far. Let them break ground first.

One57 is getting around $10k/sf for upper floor apartments, and groundbreaking for 440 Park and Torre Verre will occur in 2012, with 225 W57th not far behind. NY is the king.

I don't know. With a second recession increasingly likely and NYC facing more layoffs and the affluent the world over seeing their assets being worth less I suspect these towers aren't going up in the near future. Maybe by 2020 but I doubt in the near future.

Really hope I am wrong about that but it is difficult to be optimistic on this.
