Citigroup is one of the most iconic building in Midtown. I see One57 as a sort of spiritual successor to this building. That has been a lot of fun to see rise over the last year.

But One 57 doesn't have the angled to the degree that Citigroup does. While Citigroup has a 45 degree top (half of a right angle) One 57 probably has like a 20 degree maybe a bit more at MAX.

Also, while One 57 has a curved slant, it is much more than 20 degrees. Not 20 degrees MAX.

Interesting find. Does anyone know what building he's hinting at in part 3? Could it be Crysler?

I don't think he's suggesting that Chrysler or any other specific building is at risk. I think he meant it in more general terms, as a lot of buildings went up before the advent of modern wind engineering. So not calling out anybody specifically, just wondering "Does anyone else out there have the same problem, and we just don't know about it yet?"

Soon we may say.....

If only it was 100 ft. taller! Once it dominated its area of the skyline. Now taller buildings go up blocking a few views. Well dats progress. I hope this building becomes Landmarked soon if not already.

Midtown's Citicorp Center Designated as a Landmark



Quote:
The Landmarks Preservation Commission has voted to landmark the former Citicorp Center, which includes one of the most recognizable skyscrapers in New York City.

The Citicorp Center was completed in 1978 and contains three interlocking buildings. Most notable is the 59-story tower with its slanted top. It also includes a 6-story retail and office structure and Saint Peter's Church.

Renderings revealed for former Citicorp Center’s proposed new ‘Market Building’





POSTED ON FRI, MARCH 10, 2017
BY DANA SCHULZ


Quote:
The Midtown East skyscraper formerly known as the Citicorp Center, now called simply 601 Lexington Avenue, was made an official city landmark this past December, thanks to distinctive features including its 45-degree angular roof and base of four columns that resemble stilts. When designed by Hugh A. Stubbins & Associates in 1978, the site also included a privately owned public space with a connection to the Lexington Avenue-53rd Street subway station, which co-owner Boston Properties is now looking to update. They’ve tapped the designers at Gensler to envision a 200,000-square-foot “Market Building,” which will consist of a new outdoor plaza and terraces, as well as an interior atrium space that will host trendy dining and retail options.

According to Gensler, Boston Properties was not concerned with increasing rents, but rather “on increasing the value of the entire neighborhood by making a distinctive plaza and atrium space” that enlivens “the staid office component.”

The LPC designation pertains only to the exterior of the structure, so the interior atrium doesn’t need the Commission’s approvals. The new glass curtain wall proposed for the 53rd Street entrances does, however, and will be heard at this coming Tuesday’s meeting.

I'm sure this would be a welcomed addition to those to work and live in the area.
