emporis is not a good source at all, well at least not for asian cities. the data is mostly incorrect. this tower is U/C, please read the pages before - we don't need a status change here. also the new height of 306m is far from confirmed. we need reliable information / sources before changing the thread's title. i'm sure we will get some big news on this one in the near future concerning renders, design and height!

Excellent, but I hope it isn't another building that is 850 feet to the roof with a big-ass spire on top. I'm still holding out that it might be 1003ft. to the roof, and 1083ft. to the tip of the spire. Now that would be more like it!

if you look at the diagramm (previous page), that will very likely be the case.

Midtown Tower Supersizes Apartments and Grows to 75 Stories

There are new design details (albeit still no renderings) for the now 75-story Park Hyatt hotel/condo tower designed by French starchitect Christian de Portzamparc for Extell at 157 West 57th Street. Fresh plans were recently submitted to the Buildings Department by project architects and local boys SLCE, and the Post's Lois Weiss—who accidentally confuses the tower for part of Riverside Center, another Extell/C-deP collabo nearby—relays the highlights. There will be a garage for 63 cars, retail on the ground floor and 20 stories of hotel action with meeting rooms and a ballroom. Then the real fun starts:

Starting at the 21st floor the building turns residential, with a lounge, screening room, fitness center and other amenities. In the new version, set-back roofs are enclosed and some single-story apartments have been changed to duplexes. The highest residential floor, 72, only will have half an apartment, with the entire 71st floor hosting the rest of the apartment. [Extell CEO Gary Barnett] said it definitely won't be his next abode. "I can't afford it," he laughed. The mechanics and elevator will take the building to a 75th-floor roof.
A new 75-story tower in this climate? Ha! But laugh not, he who doubts the Barnett, because this baby is bankrolled and very much active. We're dying to see a rendering. C'mon, tipsters, hit us up.

This tower should lead the way for e-v-e-r-y other tower:
_dig a whole in the ground
_build your tower
_DO NOT, ever show a render

NIMBYs will just wake up one morning and go "Why is there shade on my eco-friendly veggie garden?"

Job done! No complains or lawsuits.

I disagree. I was shocked that in a country like America they were allowed to build a supertall without even releasing a design beforehand. It seemed like something a communist country would do, but apparently it's pure capitalism...

It gives info on another project this guy is supposedly working on in New York, 400 Park Ave. South, due to start this year, but strangely there doesn't seem to be a thread on it in SSC.

Interesting post. If the render is not released you can't have NIMBY's complaining about the design of the tower.
