This is like the best proposal NY has had in the last 60 years. Every city would be glad to have such an amazing tower prettifying the skyline. Tower Verre even beats Shanghai Tower in design.

In short: This is NY's new Chrysler Building.
Yup.

Most towers I know have better renders than the tower actually is.

I'd say it's about half and half.

Attached is the link to a 300 page document that Hines filed on ACRIS on 9 Sept. 2011. Renderings are set forth on Ex. H.

Hines is getting ready to announce a new tower in Houston. I think the money is finally flowing. Could be a good omen for Tower Verre...

I don't see how. Maybe the Houston Tower is fully funded. I'll wait, and see what Hinez say about this tower.

Credit markets are more liquid. That's good news in general.

One57;
432 Park;
Torre Verre;
225 W 57th; and
The hotel/residential at the HY.

Thereafter, a sixth: Girasole
