I'm so glad this building will have a spire. A return to form.

Yes, yes, and yes.

Every time I see this angle, I'm reminded that Chase is planning something just as big. Better be just as nice.

I would love to see Chase try to upstage this building. One Vanderbilt will be magnificent.

The facade is going to be gorgeous. And the building has a nice shape. With a base that kindly opens sight lines to GCT, though it is needlessly busy. That anglely tumor on the south side is just... Why? Clean it up KPF! Go see how Norman Foster does a lobby at 425 Park Ave. And I still don't like the top, though it seems much better now, ironically, after they shortened the building. It just works better now.

I like the angled ceiling at the base. It's a symbolic gesture to Grand Central. And it will let a ton of light into the lobby.
And the angle is a motif carried throughout the building (we see it in the facade details, at the crown, etc.)

Edit: Oh, I see what you're saying with the busyness now. Yeah, it could be cleaner. I suppose that has to do with the required program (the bank and spaces above) and accessible ramps needed.

The detail and design is awesome, especially for the area. The deck is going to have amazing views of the detail of the chrysler. This area, with the zoning, is ripe for a huge boom for office space.

It does. Although in a perfect world, this structure would extend into the 1,800 or 1,900 foot range. Especially on this site.

One Vanderbilt will do for 42nd street what Bank of America didn’t; compliment the magestic Chrysler building.

Not to get too off topic but where is the Chase location? Also any designs/specs yet or all just conjecture at this point?

wow i cant believe its already this high!!! forgot to check on it in a few months.

I see the skyline from Maspeth, Ridgewood Bushwick Wburg Gpoint area alot and LIC and the midtown skyline is really filling in amazingly!! When i was a kid there were always big areas to fill in, now its all filling in and going higher. I mean we got two supertalls topping around the same time now, 30 Hudson and Tower Verre soon, and then Nordstrom and that other crazy thin one is making a new central park skyline!
If there is more 500ft + built below 23 st pretty soon the skyline will look like 1 continuous megacity from Central Park skyline all the way downtown!!
When you drive over the Greenpoint Ave bridge thats how it looks like right now already, except it includes the LIC skyline to your most right, then all of manhattan then ends left with downtown brooklyn, its likes it encircles you

this is a great site, i check on it every few months for about 20 years now, thanks for the forum pics and thoughts and diagrams, still some original posters here like NYguy i remember from way back even before 2001 wtc attacks and i was on here alot reading posts to deal with it, what a dark time. How much the city has changed

At the site of the current Chase HQ which is to be demolished. No, no designs yet, just people wishcasting.

which is just to the north of this tower by a few blocks.

this is the "Vanderbilt Corridor" Chase's HQ is the two-pronged building just to the north of site 1282, fronting Park and Madison. One Vanderbilt is site 1277.
