Lots of rebar and concrete has been poured, but the main construction is still below ground and seems to involve just finishing the foundation.

I hope they at least work the foundation to street level. We don't need another 56 Leonard St. "swimming pool". LOL

I know I'm late. next time you go by ask him about the blueprint, makes sure he doesn't start talking about jay z. If he say there is none, ask him if he's working for the mob.

Hey desertpunk not to be a dick but you wrote the samething in other threads whats up with that?

SSP is reporting 75 floors and 1,005 feet. A forumer who works with the CTBUH and Emporis saw the blueprints at the jobsite and has confirmed the height.

That's exciting news. I'm intrigued to see the design. Portzamparc is a wonderful architect. I have high hopes.

I'll bet that that height does not include the crown. This tower could be 350m with the crown.

What crown? Christian De Portzamparc doesn't do crowns. His towers are elegant prisms of angular glass and steel, not crowns.

The information comes from someone who saw the actual blueprints. It will be 1,005 feet. No more, no less.

My friend is an architect in NY, and he said that blueprints filed with the city don't include crowns in the tower's height. Therefore, it might be taller but it won't be shorter.

The documents you're referring to have already been submitted to the NY DoB. They have 953ft listed as their highest occupied floor. So the extra 52 feet is the "crown".

Thanks. I did not know that. Supposedly, the same builder plans a taller tower nearby. Do you have any news about that?
