we all suspected it, now it's official: CTBUH lists the tower as 638ft (195m) tall. this means that 440 w 42nd str is not a skyscraper anymore. thread should be moved to the highrise section!

Within a few years, a huge tower will rise on the site of the lowrise building in the bottom of the photo to the left of the church. It's currently occupied by a Mercedes dealership. However, Mercedes is moving to the new Clinton Park Tower on 11th Avenue. This is a very big site and will overlook the new park that is to be built between 34th and 42nd Streets.

42nd street and the west side in general have experienced quite a construction boom in the last few years. no wonder that many huge towers (as 15 penn, the girasole and others) will rise there.

Hi, friend.

Why do you have an Israeli flag since you're Chinese?

I can't support Israel until it agrees to a Palestinian state with pre-1967 borders, including its capital in East Jerusalem.
