This and the North Tower at the HY are my two favorites. However, perhaps 225 W 57th will eclipse them both!

I too love HY North, as well as 15 Penn and One57. I am hoping 225 will have an unprecedented, but realistic, design.

Site is pretty well boarded up so this is the best I could do, but clearly a pilling machine is on site. The street on the opposite side of the photo was shut down today as well to set up a crane for a new 600 foot building.

Photo's mine.

When I said the machine is ten feet tall, I clearly misjudged!

I hope things here will move as swiftly as in the case of 432 Park

IDK, the design looks far more complicated.

This and One57 will balance the 400m towers located to the east (432 Park) and to the west (225 W 57th) of them.






PS: I speculate that the next 300+ residential will rise on the site of the Ziegfeld Theater on W 54th St. It's a block-through site that could be emptied at-will, and I believe that a parking garage may be adjacent to it.

I'd say 432 Park is more complicated because it is so tall while so thin. This building looks to be the same width as 432 Park, though significantly shorter. The shape is more complicated but I think the revolutionary engineering involved in 432 Park is even more complicated. Just my 2 cents though

This is steel tower, 432 PA is concrete tower. Two different leagues.
