I'd love that tower if it's going to be like this.

NYC is just amazing.

Can anyone tell me where it's going to be?, close to what place?

omg, this is amazing news! first i didn't know about this tower, now another two will rise! this means three supertalls alone in this area. and counting wpc, gira sole, tower verre etc. new york city is eventually making progress (in terms of building supertalls)! hopefully it won't take too long.

2. A beautiful tower of about 250m will rise at 250 E 57th St. (www.250e57.com).

Therefore, five new very tall towers will peer over the Central Park skyline in a few years. (The one at the Drake site will appear just to the west of Citicorp and 250 E 57th will appear just west of Citicorp.)
both to the west? this will creat a new massive canyon there! and yeah that one at 250 E 57th St. is really a beauty, the render looks promising.

btw: did you contact a mod? and if, what did he say? it's still too early to move this thread?

Plot Twist



By Eliot Brown
October 6, 2009
Quote:
There’s a rule of thumb that applies to the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission: The agency shouldn’t try to designate a building a landmark against its owner’s will unless the commission’s ready for a loud public skirmish. And, generally in the Bloomberg administration, the commission has steered clear of such battles, making for relatively few such messy designation attempts.

So in July, it came as something of a surprise when the LPC took the confrontational action of starting the designation process—an act known as “calendaring”—on a pair of connected buildings at Broadway and West 57th Street owned by Extell Development, one of the city’s most active developers.

Indeed, the move has provoked a major fight, as Extell scrambles to ward off the LPC’s designation drive. In recent weeks, the firm has been successfully urging unions, trade groups and, most notably, key members of the City Council to demonstrate push-back against the commission. Already, an LPC vote that had been expected this week has been delayed, with no new vote yet scheduled.

At the same time, preservationists, who have often been critical of the LPC for too frequently deferring to the desires of developers, support the designation—though the buildings had not been among their top priorities.

Both of the Howard Van Doren Shaw–designed buildings, 225 West 57th Street and 1780 Broadway, were built by the B. F. Goodrich Company in 1909 and were part of “Automobile Row,” a concentration of car dealerships, many of which are already landmarked. Extell’s argument is that it was blindsided by the designation effort, and landmarking both properties would ruin its prime development site, precluding the company from building a $1 billion–plus commercial tower. (According to property records, it already has a $256 million mortgage out on the site.)

Accordingly, the firm, which is led by Gary Barnett, has mobilized. Using its own preservation consultant, Extell submitted a compromise plan—landmark only 1780 Broadway, the old B. F. Goodrich headquarters—arguing that the history of the 12-story, brick 225 West 57th Street does not merit landmark status and that its demolition should be permitted.

Extell has leaned on key unions, including the New York Hotel and Motel Trades Council and the Building and Construction Trades Council, both of which have pull with the Bloomberg administration and on the Council, urging them to lobby against the landmarking and for the tower. The unions have each submitted testimony to the LPC in support of the compromise plan, as did the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects. The powerful Real Estate Board of New York opposes landmark designation for either building.

.........If the full LPC is to accede to Extell’s wishes, it would open itself to the charge that it backed down in the face of pressure from a powerful developer, and if it designates the building, it risks alienating Extell and its allies.

Further, if LPC were to go ahead with the designation of both properties, it would punt to the council the final decision making—and any accompanying political fallout—as that body has the power to veto a landmark designation (though that, too, is very rare).

I think that's just site prep, I'm not sure construction has officially started yet.

I really want to see the design of this thing however, they haven't really shown it yet. This is one of the rare cases where demolition has started before the tower has been revealed.

They haven't done piling yet. And from the look of that picture above, it's clear they haven't even reached the bottom. With no render released to the public, the city probably hasn't even signed off on the development.

This tower belongs in the Proposal section.

I think the title is changed from "Prep" to "UC" once pilling starts.
Correct me if I'm wrong...

Makes sense to me. But there probably nothing to stop this tower anymore?

I want to see a rendering! Hopefully it will have a restaurant on top open to the general public.

Because more people are interested in those towers than this one and the mods caved into demands. Also it's claimed that Shanghai Tower is using a different type of construction. Supposedly the piles were driven deep into the ground unseen because of the swampland that it's being built over. All I ever saw were the slurry wall panels driven into the ground.

I don't like the double standard either... but this one is not U/C yet.
