I heard this building may be revived considering the growing real estate market in NYC. Is this true?

As the financial capital of the world, NY needs buildings like this with large floor plates.

The site was sold and this bland box is what the new owners chose to build. What's more, the steel is rising at the site! Sometimes an ugly win is still a win.

If it resembles that render then it'll be far from bland. The tower shown in that rendering is exquisite!

I see this one, and the close by Hearst Tower as "uneven twins". They will have very simmilar heights, and mass. Should work well, with the TWC, and the close by supertalls. The pyramid on 12 Avenue, and the Riverside centre will add a futuristic part, while the campus project, at the MET, will add more bulk. This part of the skyline will be amazing. And i din't mention the 220 CP tower, which will add another 170m density.

Not ugly, just boring and boxy.
