Gotham is just a New York City nickname. I'm not sure what else it is supposed to mean though.

Anyway, this is one sexy beast. Can't wait to see this thing get approval. Not too many I can think of in that neighborhood that would consider it an obstruction of the river or being built over any landmark. Great design.

Hands down, in my top 2 for best proposed tower in NYC right now. Idk why but now I would be utterly devastated if this tower wasn't built. I might go emo for a year or two.

I've seen many towers all over the world, but, without any doubt, this one's on the top. I'd like to know the height. It is at least 1,050 feet tall, maybe well over 1,100'.

Not until I hear it from a credible source. Just because they showed an elevation with the CB doesn't mean much.

Yep, that's why I mentioned the Shard. I think this one is better proportioned. And I love the cross-bracing too. In a sense, it combines the best of both the Shard and Leadenhall.

According to people at WNY, this may be as tall as 1,300' (about 400m), so I'm waiting for a final number. It may be a good idea to ignore the elevation with the Chrysler Building for now because NYT doesn't match up with the renderings. They were also wrong with the final heights of the WTC.

If I had to guess, I'd say that it's around 1,100'.

Until we get more information, it's safe to say that it's taller than the Chrysler Building, so about 1,050 will do for now, but NY Times may not be on target here.

Okay people, lets not put anybody on the spot. Thanks for the pics Ebola. Moving on. I really doubt this building will stand out in the skyline. The Chrysler struggles at times to stand out when you see it from different points of the city, thats all.

^What the hell? This is a 1,000'-PLUS tall tower being built in an area with a lot of 400-700' tall towers. This will stick out a lot. The Chrysler Building's spire is a toothpick compared to this tower's spire, so this one is a major addition to the midtown skyline. I'm sure that you'd be able to see it from 80% of all angles. Even though the CB may not always look big, you can almost alwyas still see it.



Looking from this picture, it seems to be over 1,200 feet tall. The crown/spire seems to be at least 200 feet tall. I hope we get a final height seen because I'm starting to freak out.

I think that it's around 1,100-1,250ft. If the top usable floor is the 75 and then the crown, I'm sure it will be quite high.

I dont think its so cut and dry, we are getting brand new mostly amazing buildings at the wtc even though they are replacing something they are still brand new.

Excuse the crappy photoshopping but i wanted an idea of how this baby will look on the skyline, hopefully im not too far off with height.

Why 1,300?





Someone at Wired New York explains...


By kz1000ps

Quote:
I say ignore the Chrysler silhouette comparison and look to the render of the Nouvel among its neighboring structures and towers. From that we can deduce:

Let's use the building to the west as our ruler. It's 496 feet tall, so let's round it up to an even 500. Looking at the diagonal cross-bracing on the Nouvel's north facade, you can estimate that there are two complete "segments" of it plus the base, which looks to be about half the height of one cross-bracing segment. So figure 2 1/2 segments equals 500 feet, which makes for easy math---- one segment equals 200 feet.

NOW, there are three full segments above the 500 foot mark, plus a crown which is another segment.. that makes for a total of 6 1/2 segments at roughly 200 feet each.

And that's how I arrived at 1,300.

Of course, this rendering could be horribly off, but the Nouvel is perfectly rendered, and the surrounding buildings' massings and heights look accurate, so I think it's safe to trust this one.

I hope this will be built. It looks like a worthy addition to the NYC skyline.
