You could build a 10 story tower with 10K sq. ft. per floor, a 20 story tower with 5K sq. ft. per floor, or any other distribution that falls within the building envelope restrictions.

As others have noted, skinnier and taller is better, especially for residential (smaller floor plates mean more floor-through apartments and fewer windowless rooms) are and especially in midtown (anything under 500 ft. will only have a view of its next door neighbors).
I never knew of the "set" square footage. A strange concept to me, but the explanation now makes sense. Thanks.

Um that's Lord Foster to you. What's not to like about Norman Foster designs. His work has only gotten better since winning the Pritzker Prize.

I mean
or 2WTC or Hearst etc.

Today

The jagged edges that will form the wavy facade is now visible.

It's nice how the podium structure reaches the height of the neigbouring podium. Keeps the area unified.

imo 610 Lexington is a great example of making a new building fit organically into its several-decades elder surroundings and still have it maintain its modern look that characterizes it - well done, Sir Foster!

This building is going to look a lot larger in real life Imo. The renderings make the tower and surrounding buildings look small and slender. But if you look at the photos above, the buildings actually pretty tall and wide.

Cant wait to see the progress!

Nope. The base is twice as wide as the body of the tower. Take another look at the render.

I hope the side cladding won't look too plasticky.
