The WTC and ESB are office buidlings. You don't compare office with residential. Look to the office buildings being planned if you want large footprints.

It impacts this building because it is a landmarked building, or at least portions of it, and its being incorporated to make this a larger development. As far as being preserved, JDS is one developer that has a particular taste for preserving old buildings, and would probably be converting Steinway Hall even without the taller portion.

Walker tower has already been very successful...

Giants in Our Midst
The first of the 1,000-footers stomps onto 57th Street.


By Justin Davidson
Sep 15, 2013


Quote:
...The plutocratization of the midtown skyline is just getting under way. It will be months before the first moving trucks pull up to One57 (and a year before the Park Hyatt at its base opens), but already the building is destined to be the shorty in a lineup of giants. A few doors down, the gracious Steinway Hall will be getting a stalky neighbor, a third again as tall as One57. There’s hope for that one: SHoP has proposed a bronzed feather tricked out with glazed terra-cotta tiles, which could provide some of the texture and detail that make the Woolworth Building so lovable.

...Manhattan is acquiring two comically distinct types of glass super-skyscrapers: the fat office building like the Bank of America Tower, its girth ample enough to accommodate a trading floor; and the skinny residential shaft, just thick enough for a full-floor duplex with windows all around. These architectural Laurels and Hardys are staking out different neighborhoods, and the zoning along 57th Street is superbly tailored to the desires of the ­ultrarich, allowing very tall towers on narrow lots. But as technology and economics keep pushing upward, the city has an interest in seeing that the tallest new buildings are both necessary and good.

^ It's great what they did there. I'm waiting to see the finer details of what they have planned here.

This is 785 8th ave (566ft). 107 will be more than twice as tall with almost the same width.

I've noticed the thinner they get, the more they look like there leaning side to side from the ground view. IDK maybe its just me but I feel a good wind would make it sway and be noticeable if standing right below it.

There's a new render that was posted over on Wired New York, showing the tower from the north. There doesn't seem to be a larger file at the moment.

The Verre Tower will complement this nicely. It kinda looks like it in the rendering, at least at first glance it shows hints of the tower Verre design.

Look at the Eastern flank. Seems like the tapering will be a very significant.

Almost didn't recognize One57 in that rendering, it looks small compared to this one...

I'm almost weeping for joy at this.
The CP-facing side is vertical. Wow...and I mean a good wow. Forgive me for pointing out the obvious; but this feature I honestly didn't expect given the first render we saw.

(This is, FAIn'P, London's 122 Leadenhall on a fad diet.) Edit: Scratch this; as the poor image quality didn't properly show the setbacks at the 57th side. My bad.

Now, if we can just have an ultra hi-res pic of this at least.....

That view from the park is incredible.

Can you imagine this perspective, with a half-dozen or so supertalls in the general vicinity? Holy crap.

The tapering side might be to give each apartment a deck on the South facing side. Some of the top ones may be a bit windy though :p

SHOP posted a photo of a model for this project on their Instagram. It provides a new and very helpful angle for us.

I'm not really a fan of SHOP (except for the Barclays Center) but they're really winning me over with this tower and their twin building on the east side. This is going to look amazing with 432 Park!! Tho I do hope the Nordstrom tower does end up taller to punctuate the 57th street skyline. I really look forward to spending more time on the Great Lawn.
