why cant someone just go there and ASK the workers what the heck theyre building!? surely there must be SOME kind of renders of this project!

do i have to go and do it myself??

im sure some of the workers have some kind of renders available. someone go and take some pics of them. i need to know if i should hate or love this project. it sure is noisy, though.

The developer, Extell, simply declared that they will be released in 2009. Extell also is clearing the site for another project of about 280m one block west on 57th Street.

You're right. I saw that thread in WNY too. This thread needs to be changed to u/c and moved to the supertall section. Too bad we've no renderings for an u/c tower.

im not sure about the location, will block the view of the carnegie hall tower from central park. this is also a very tall few blocks, i think it would be better on the west side where it could really stand out, but i dont care another massive scraper for midtown! yay! cant wait for the renders.

At 300+ meters, it will stand out from the East and Hudson Rivers, and it will be prominent when viewed from the park.

I'm on holiday in NY and went by this site today. As reported to me months ago by my mates in NY, there is a crew of people and machines working there daily.

This should be moved to under construction, and it should be moved to supertall. Anyone who knows anything about the NY Buildings Department knows that buildings always are at least 30m taller than the figure listed on the DOB website. As reported in the NY Post article, this will be over 300m.

Is this the building? http://www.emporis.com/en/il/im/?id=693524 It says height (architectural) is 290.50 m with 73 floors, matching the articles in this thread.

I'm not sure at all what the heck it is, but if it is the building, it does have a structural extension and since people are saying the roof height is over 950ft, it would count as a supertall.




Is it called the Intell Tower?

That's an old design. Here's the article to which I referred:

LUXURY HOTEL TO RISE ON 57TH ST.



December 2, 2008


A 1,000 foot-tall hotel and condo tower is coming to Extell's West 57th Street development site that's now a giant hole in the ground.

My mate is in the building industry. He said that Kondylis was just the architect of record but that he will be replaced bySLCE. However, he informed me that Christian de Portzamparc designed the new one.

I don't see any info on their sites about this building, though it seems Christian de Portzamparc is working on "Riverside Center" towers for Extell.

It's beyond me why this is not listed as under construction and as a supertall.
then maybe someone should contact a mod (you! ) to move this thread to the supertalls section + u/c !

Lofter
Possibly it's on the proposed stage when the thread was created.
