I mean, it’s better than what exists currently - the facade looks quite high quality - but the BofA building is a tough act to follow...

Still, couldn’t they have done something more?

I agree. That box looks lame.

It's a decent enough office tower, more height would have been good but the design is not that bad. The materials will make or break this box.

Didn't expect it to be half that size. Wonder if that space up top is public.

Design is lame, height decent. Hope they redo the small park/plaza on 43rd, shown right above in NYGuys post, also, can't believe those two stubby boxes directly north of this thing still exist.

I don't know much about the more distant one, but the closer one is called Hippodrome NYC and it's actually quite fancy. It was recently renovated too so it could stick around for decades.

While this is a nice filler, improving upon what is at the corner, I feel like its somewhat wasted potential given the location and site. If anything, it would of been nice to wait a few years for a sizable project to rise here. This is still nice, but somewhat wasted potential.

I think there's a misconception here that 6th avenue is zoned for bigger buildings then it is. Most of lots up to Central Park have used all their air rights. The hippodrome could go larger- but as mentioned before it's just been renovated.

I'm surprised this building got so big- It's air rights were exhausted and they've only gotten new area from committing to subway improvements.

Sterile as all heck. Reminds me of a hospital lol. Sad how a renovation can be so lackluster.

It's larger than I would have expected. If it were really necessary, they could always go the ULURP route and apply for a larger tower. But its just space that BofA can't get across the street, and could have gone to anyone.

Unsuccessfully trying to find more news regarding this proposal.
Too bad this can't become a supertall, to accompany BoA Tower.

Crains mentioned Uber is looking for space near Bryant Park. This could be it.

Quote:
The ride-hailing giant Uber is searching for a big block of office space in anticipation of an expected $100 billion initial public offering next month.

Several sources said the company has been looking for 250,000 to 300,000 square feet, visiting buildings around Bryant Park in Midtown and 3 World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan as prospective locations.

This space is going to BofA.

Older pics, but a sense of where this tower will fit on the cityscape...

Bank of America plans to concentrate Manhattan staff at Midtown hub


Bloomberg News
June 12, 2019


Quote:
Bank of America Corp. wants to bring more of its New York staff to one hub.

The company is starting renovations on the HBO building and three floors of the Grace Building across from its 55-story tower at One Bryant Park in midtown Manhattan, it said in a statement Wednesday. When the project is completed by 2022, a large portion of the bank’s 13,000 New York employees will be at six properties clustered around Avenue of the Americas.

The new offices will include flexible workspaces, a wellness center and dining and training facilities, and will incorporate solar technology and recycled materials, Bank of America said. The HBO building, at 1100 Avenue of the Americas, is owned by Brookfield Property Partners LP, and the Grace Building, at 1114 Avenue of the Americas, is owned by Swig Co.

The offices “will be designed to offer flexible environments facilitating both collaborative and independent work,” Anne Walker, market president for Bank of America in New York City, said in an emailed statement.
Quote:
Financial firms have been catching up to technology companies, increasingly seeking out new or revamped office space with open floor plans and more amenities as they look to leave behind the stodgy buildings they’ve inhabited for decades. Charlotte, North Carolina-based Bank of America expanded its presence in New York with the acquisition of Merrill Lynch during the financial crisis.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. is tearing down its 52-story office tower at 270 Park Ave. in Midtown so it can build a more modern skyscraper of about 70 floors on the site. Several blocks south, SL Green Realty Corp. is developing One Vanderbilt, a tower near Grand Central Terminal that has attracted future tenants including Carlyle Group LP.

Is the new tower not being built and only the existing building is getting a new façade?
