Kinda confusing...is it 82 floors (which I had originally read it would be)..67 as it has here or 57? I'm guessing it will be 82 stories at 937 ft.

It'll probably be 57 real floors, but they'll market it as 67 or 82. Anyway, great to see this one finally rising! I'm usually not a fan of building contemporary versions of old styles, but this is an exception. Fantastic design.

By counting the floor of the model:
-The base could have either six or three floors + ground floor, I am not sure, looking at the model it looks like 3 floors with very high ceilings, but also could be that each window actually spans two standard floors, with a total of six floors. My guess is there are 6 floors with some double height spaces, like ballroms or conference rooms.

-Then you have 19 floors with the lower ceiling heights, until the 25th, I guess those are the hotel.

-From 26th to 50th, residences with higher ceilings than the floors bellow, from 51St to 62nd, more residences with ceilings that seems a bit higher than the ones in the lower floors.

-From 63rd to 70th, eight more floors with very high ceilings, must be super-luxury penthouses.

-Above that, the crown.



In the rendering, I count two less floors in the central residential section, instead og going up to 62nd, it only reachs the floor 60th (57 if the base is 3 high-ceiling floors) with the Penthouses going up to the 68th. (65th if the base has only 3 floors) (there is also a rendering from street level that shows the base with ground floor + 4 high-ceiling floors)


In conclusion, it could have from 65 floors if the base has 3 floors and counting according to the rendering to 70 floors if the base has six floors and counting according to the model.

BTW, I didn't realize until know that this one was so close to the WTC site, I thought it was like ten blocks away, closer to the East River.

I anticipate some stratospheric prices for units in this building, especially the penthouse(s). Candy Spelling set an LA condo record for the top unit in the Stern-designed "The Century" tower, and this is significantly taller and better located (for those who don't know LA, Century City is little more than a dull master-planned business park). Hard to imagine the prices reaching quite 15 CPW levels, but I still wouldn't bet against it either -- the market is still crazy hot, and rich folks LOVE Stern's buildings. When do you guys suppose the units might go on the market?

I don't like that bifurcated 2 WTC without the diamonds in that model there. Better not be a bad omen.

No worries! You can't see it in that picture. Half of the North facing fašade of the tower is out of the picture.

He didn't mean the pic, he meant the wooden model in front of the pic. It would be a catastrophe if 2WTC would be built like that but I think the model builder just didn't want to measure all the myriad angles top of the building ........ at least that's what I hope

Thanks, Kanto! I'm reminded, looking at that diagram, what an amazing triumvirate this will make with Gehry and 56 Leonard. Such diverse takes on similarly-scaled buildings. Can't wait to see them all built and in close proximity to one another.

I really can't believe how in love I am with this tower. Its so perfect for downtown and compliments the Woolworth Building beautifully. It reminds me so much of 1 Wall Street and the top kind of reminiscent of the GE Building in style (without the ornate detail of course). If some big glass box was built here I would have a different opinion, but this is a f*cking masterpiece in the modern day! Probably my favorite u/c tower anywhere in the world right now.

Silverstein Breaking Ground on Tribeca Four Seasons
http://commercialobserver.com/2013/1...-four-seasons/

Quote:
Silverstein Properties later this morning will celebrate a ground breaking ceremony for the 82-story tower that will feature a 185-room Four Seasons hotel at 30 Park Place in Tribeca after an announcement last week that it had secured financing for the project.

The Tribeca building at Park Place and Church Street, slated to become Downtown’s tallest residential building at 926 feet, will in addition feature 157 Robert A.M. Stern-designed, Four Seasons-branded private residences, ranging in size from one- to six-bedrooms, mounted atop the first 21 floors, which are dedicated to the hotel.

Late last month Silverstein Properties announced it had, along with its partners, successfully financed almost $1 billion to build the property.

“The day it opens, Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown will be the top hotel and condominium building in Tribeca,” said Larry Silverstein of Silverstein Properties, in a statement. “It will join and enhance a world-class neighborhood that is already home to a dynamic blend of modern office towers, private residences, high-end retail and dazzling public spaces. Downtown is fast becoming a vibrant, integrated, mixed-use destination on a scale not seen in New York City since Rockefeller Center in 1939.”

The property was purchased in 2007 by Metro Fund, LLC, a joint venture of Silverstein Properties and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System, which is being advised by CBRE Global Investors U.S. Managed Accounts Group.

Financing for the approximately $1 billion project was provided by the Children’s Investment Fund; and Cumming – an international program and cost management firm – is providing project monitoring services on behalf of Children’s Investment Fund. Metro Fund provided the equity.

Construction is slated for completion in 2016 and is expected to open in mid-2016. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group will handle marketing and sales of the condominiums, expected to launch in the spring of 2014.

Quote:
The Four Seasons Downtown will stretch 926 feet high and is set to open in mid-2016. The property will include a 189-key hotel, over 15 percent of which will be suites, crowned by a 3,500-square-foot Royal Suite. Hotel amenities include a fitness room, swimming pool, and children’s playroom, while residents of the 157 luxury condominiums will also have access to three terraces.

The residential apartments will start on the building’s 23rd floor, which will have eight units, according to the plan filed with the Department of Buildings. There will also be four apartments each on the 25th through 48th floors, as well as six duplexes. The 49th through 58th floors will have three units each, while 59 through 61 will have two each, and the 62nd and 63rd floors will have two duplexes between them. The 64th to 66th floors will each have a full-floor penthouse.

If Silversten had total control over Ground Zero, then all construction would have ended there years ago.

The Port Authority is the sole reason for all the delays there.

Kanto, I thoroughly appreciate that you post these progress diagrams. Why do you use a grey representation of 432 Park though? Why not toss this one into the mix?
