So far we have 4 towers:
1. North Tower, 1,292 feet
2. South Tower, 1017 feet
3. Mixed-use Tower, 1,000 feet +
4. Residential Tower, 800 feet +

Good times ahead for NY!

South Tower to start this fall...

With New Lease, Viacom Commits to Times Sq.

By CHARLES V. BAGLI
April 25, 2012

With Viacom now out of the market, developers are focusing on media and technology companies like Time Warner, rather than financial companies, as a possible anchor tenant for a new office tower they are all eager to build, whether it is in Midtown, downtown or on the Far West Side of Manhattan.

Last year, Jeffrey L. Bewkes, the chief executive of Time Warner, expressed his desire to consolidate the company’s operations, which include HBO, Time Inc., Warner Brothers and CNN, in new quarters by 2017. He described the company’s current headquarters at the Time Warner Center as “indulgent” and said he hoped to save tens of millions of dollars by moving to a new, less-expensive space. Earlier this month, Time Warner’s real estate broker, Studley, asked roughly a dozen developers to submit preliminary proposals for from one million to three million square feet of office space.

The developer Larry Silverstein submitted information about the towers he is building at the World Trade Center, while Brookfield proposed either the World Financial Center downtown, or, better yet, the company’s large development site across Ninth Avenue from the Farley Post Office.

Alloy Development, in a partnership with Boston Properties, threw its West Side site, between 35th and 36th Streets, into the mix. And separately, Boston Properties, in partnership with Related Companies and Extell Development, offered an office site on Eighth Avenue at 45th Street. Extell also submitted plans for a tower on 11th Avenue, opposite the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.

Related, which built the Time Warner Center, has also proposed building a new headquarters for Time Warner at the southwest corner of 33rd Street and 10th Avenue, as part of its 26-acre Hudson Yards project. Related has told city officials that it plans to start work on a new headquarters for Coach in October on a site nearby.

- Interesting article, it's impressive that Time Warner could end up occupying as much as 3 Million SF, although it's intriguing that the CEO is looking for "less expensive" space.

Yeah, they've said they're looking at space all over the metro area as a way to potentially save money, but since Related has said they're only looking to break even on the office space here, Related could give TW a real sweat heart deal if TW moves basically everything to the Hudson Yards. Especially if TW agreed to sell their current office space which they own, which is located in the Time Warner Center which is a building Related owns. That office space would certainly be some of the most expensive in the city. Even now over $100/sf I'd imagine.

And a move out of the city would really be against the grain. Companies like Goldman are shifting more of their operations from their Jersey City building back into Manhattan. But we'll have to wait and see, what Time Warner does has huge ramifications in the grand scheme of things.

So TW would most definitely occupy the North Tower then... sounds promising.

I don't know if it's possible but is anyone good enough to attempt putting that render of that third tower into one of the renders of the other two? It would be interesting to see all three of them together.

If it's going to be over 1000ft, NYC's supertall proposal list is getting pretty crazy.

Probably about 1890 to the 1930's. From 1890 to 1974 the tallest building in the world was in NY. Starting with the World Building in 1890, then the Manhattan Life Insurance Building in 1894, then the Singer Building in 1908, then the Met Insurance Company Tower in 1909, then the Woolworth Building in 1913, then 40 Wall St in 1930, then the Chrysler Building later in 1930, then the ESB in 1931.

This boom won't yield the world's tallest, but certainly an impressive field of buildings.

^ In no way the current situation is comparable to the early 20th century and the birth of skyscrapers that completely changed the face of NYC.

But anyway, that doesn't really belong here. NYC has an independent forum for such discussions.

Don't forget One World Trade Center in 1972.
