I always wonder how do do it with the windows in NYC.
THey build the tall buildings all against each other. But if they build a tall building next to a building that was taller than the building that has been nocked down to build the tall building, than what do they do with the windows of the neigbouring building?

The duo of Carnegie 57 and Torre Verre will be magnificent. I can't wait for 225 W 57th and (hopefully, Related's tower at Columbus Circle) to join them, creating 4 new 300m+ towers on the CPS skyline.

Yes, that will be awesome. It's an entire new level not just in height but also a line of modern towers behind the older ones.

I agree.

Extell is knocking down some of the buildings already on the site for 225 W 57th. Construction obviously won't start until the economy picks up. Extell won't want to sell mega expensive apartments in two 300m+ towers simultaneously. Nevertheless, it must have some idea at this stage as to the height and design of 225 W 57th. It would be nice to know what will rise there.

I see your point. But I actually like it orientated this way. It's like how the Citigroup building is facing "away" from the park. It makes it look a slight bit more bold from the park's perspective.

Love this building by the way.

Well in that case, they'll fill those windows up..No purpose to have windows and wall on the other side, right?

And what with the appartements if the windows are filled? Do the inhabitants live in the complete dark? Or do the appartements stretch from front to back?

I would suggest to paint a nice landscape on the opposite wall.

Still, with an open window you would have natural light inside, which is still better than artificial.

Do the people in the smaller building with no windows need to pay less for renting or buying that appartment because they all of a sudden don't have a nice view? And if an even taller building is being build next to the new one, do those people of the other pay less?
I always wondered how that had to be for the people living there.

Those windows are usually small bathroom windows or something like that...Architects wont place livingroom window on that side because this is exactly what could happen...So they put small windows there..You don't even have to look out thru them...It's just because of daylight..

You don't get a discount on rent because your view changes. It's just a fact of life in any big city. Now, after the building is completed and a new renter is looking at an apartment, the rent will be lower because of no view. Imagine the people in the building just BEHIND this monster. They used to have a view of the park...soon they won't.

Very soon! There is a crane on site now and progress is visable every time there is a update.
