It wasn't nimby. And I'm glad it's only 1050 feet tall. Taller doesn't mean better and this building one of the best.

glad to see this one back! such a great piece of architecture!
With 0ne57 t/o and 432 rising along with this, Midtown will be on a whooole new level
and I can't forget the Hudson Yards Project too!

I recon this and 432 will be topped out at around the same time? seeing as 432 maybe taller, but it has many months of construction/foundations ahead of this, will be good to watch this tower grow though!

Hmmm. Maybe
432 park is much more simple . It's construction has already started as well. I'd say even with the 400 extra feet 432 park avenue will be topped out first. Just a guess though

I think 432 will finish around 8 to 16 months earlier, but that's just me.

Side note, there's a full tower crane up for the Baccarat Tower on 53rd. I'll grab a photo laster this week.

I've never been much a fan of Nouvel's work, but I must say that he sure has outdone himself with this one!

There are repots on WNY from a construction industry insider that construction will begin in 2013, which sounds right given the site activity.

And thanks for the renderings Costa, this is the type of building that even my non skyscraper fanatic friends are excited about. A truly fantastic building.

Very nice.

Btw: This rendering shows the earlier, greater height, doesn't it?

Would be great if someone could link or post more current highres renderings!
