Tower Verre got the redesign, and just need financing.

225 57th , i don't think extell is demoing bldg's for no reason, and given their success with this tower, it looks good for this one.

432 P Av. is an as off right thing, and most likely will be built. AFAIK financing is there for that one.

220 CPS is "just" a mere 170m tower, and they recently got the permit to start razing the still existing bldg. They will start in Januar 2012.

250 E 57th the school is mostly done, the tower portion (phase 2) might start next year.


IMO it LOOKS like all said projects will be built.

Nice picture man.
I was driving through the east side last week in a taxi when I noticed how that project is doing. Right Now it seems like another average addition to the edge of Central Park but I can't wait to see the look on people's faces when this building hits 1000 ft.

I can't wait that this one breaks the 1000 feet mark. It'll be sort of sureal to see something that tall on that location. I have never thought of something that tall in this area.

Fingers crossed that the other supertall west of it and 220CPS, will have an amazing design.

Sureal?

It might be the tallest in this area...but city spire, which is just 50 smaller, isn't far away from one57.

Look at the shape of the plot, and the fact that this is the first supertall ever to rise on a midblock plot. Also, most supertalls have their own dedicated plot, without a city fabric around it.

So yes, i still see this one as a very unusual and surealistic supertall. Even "the first of it's kind". I sense some good skyscraper times are approaching midtown. :-)

Still quite a difference I think, and this tower will be two blocks closer to CP than cityspire is. It'll stick out much more to the pedestrians around CP.

Yeah 191 feet is a really big difference. And the pedestrian in Central Park won't even notice it.

Sorry? Are you trying to say that a tower 2 blocks closer and with 50 feet more in height, will not appear noticeably taller? If that's not what you're saying, I'm obviously being slow.
