No doubt the LPC wants to maintain the existing streetwall around Central Park so any very tall buildings will have to go up behind that streetwall as Carnegie 57 will. Also consider how long it takes to assemble a buildable site in NYC not to mention waiting out leases and the approval process. Developers there work on 20 year timeframes. That's why I'm not particularly concerned about a delay of a month or two.

Outside of the park it's a pretty safe in that area. Known more for its brownstones then its skyscrapers.

They hide it away, like it was the last bit of gold on the planet. But instead we get a lump of coal. I feel the design could be much better but at 1005 feet I won't cry about it.

HI! Would it be better to save the brownstones in NYC? Does the gherkin on axminster London supersede everything rectangular and tall?

thats doesn't make for a very strong building. Every building in the this city I've seen, has started with the core first. Pay no mind to the spambot.

usually the main steel columns are put into the basement and then they start building the core, followed by the rest of the steel.....
