Expecting a supertall here. Everything less then 1,000 feet is a potential loss.

I hope so. It all depends on how much square footage the developer will be able to pump into this site

Looks like we have another tall slender tower in development here.

Yet Another Supertall Possible at 610 Lexington Avenue
http://newyorkyimby.com/

Quote:
The latter point is important because RFR has a 99-year lease on Lever House, which the company spent $70 million renovating in 2000. The Korein family owns the building, and – per The New York Times – the landmark’s unused air rights will be sold for $75 million. No public figures are available for the exact square footage of the tower’s development rights, but using the city’s price-point for air transfers under the re-zoning puts the number at 300,000 square feet. Given this, and presuming the Korein family sells the rights to RFR, it is entirely plausible that RFR will more than double the square footage of 610 Lexington Avenue, giving it the same development rights as 57th Street skyscrapers like 432 Park Avenue and 111 West 57th Street, with a figure totaling approximately 540,000 square feet.

The prospects with this site is very exciting. Great job as always NYYIMBY!

A 540,000 square feet supertall would be quite slender again.

REALLY slender. Imagine this tower at twice the height:

With that ground space it has to be a supertall.

Permits Filed: 610 Lexington Avenue


http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/01/perm...on-avenue.html



Quote:
New permits for RFR Realty’s 610 Lexington Avenue indicate the tower may keep its plans by SLCE, after the scuttling of the Midtown East re-zoning late last year. The site’s potential is significant, and had the re-zoning passed, the skyscraper could have gained both height and bulk.

Instead, 610 Lexington Avenue will apparently comprise a mere 303,000 square feet of space, containing a mix of hotel and condominiums. The latest permits indicate a height of 65 floors — which is a slight increase — as well as seventeen residential units, which will span 47,000 square feet. The top two floors will be used for mechanical space, and the building will stand 712 feet in total.

Given that units will average nearly 3,000 square feet, it is fair to assume that ‘the residences’ at 610 Lexington will be priced astronomically. Per the project’s Schedule A, they will sit at the top of the building, occupying floors 52 to 63. A comparable site would be the Baccarat Tower on West 53rd Street, though that building’s emphasis is on condominiums; the vast bulk of 610 Lexington will be dedicated to the hotel occupant, which was originally supposed to be a Shangri-La.

610 Lexington is the latest to jump on the super-luxe residential train, though the incorporation of condominiums has not changed the tower’s form. Equipment has been dormant on-site for quite some time, so whether the new permits indicate imminent activity remains to be seen. What is clear is that RFR seems intent on taking advantage of the ongoing Midtown super-luxe boom.

What is the news on the rezoning? Why aren't all these projects just waiting if the rezoning passage is 'guaranteed' later this year? 712ft is a bummer.

I like the fact that it's not too bulky. Come on N.Y.C. how about some more stone masonry finished 'scrapers for which the city was justly famous, this building is o.k. but could be anywhere on earth these days.

buildings these days have transparent facades to maximize the amount of natural light which is let into the building. It decreases the amount of resources needed to produce lighting, which is why most 'green' skyscraper comes with a glassy exterior. Not only that, but it makes for a nicer place to inhabit for living or working.

They probably just don't want to have to wait for another year and just start on the project. They have been waiting for a while now to just get this off the ground. The new filings, indicates they want to just get the ball rolling.

The people on 425 Park Ave also indicated they may not wait and just start to build, however I think they should. It would be worth the wait for them considering they are in a prime prime location to get hedge funders to lease at their building.

On the other hand One Vanderbilt does not have that luxury to break ground and has no choice but to wait until the MER gets approved for them to be able to build an iconic 1,200 + footer.
