It depends how they use the space. They could make a huge retail base which would consume a lot of space and therefore, reduce the height. That's unlikely though.

Peace amigo.

I walked by on 17 Nov 2011, and demolition was proceeding. Extell has only 97 apartments to sell at One57, and based upon redhot sales at lesser developments, the world's "one percent" will buy them quickly. Therefore, Barnett will want to get this 300m+ tower rising once the site has been fully cleared.

Work on this site was in full swing on 29 Nov. 2011. The school, which was located at 220 W58th (on the northeast portion of the site) is gone, as is 217W57th. 221 W57th is nearly gone, and demolition is proceeding on 225 W58th.

That is going to be a MASSIVE tower!

That is a really wide and deep mid-block lot. I hope the design is inspired like One57 and not like the assumed horror at 432 Park...

This is what the north side of the site looked like on 21 Aug. 2011. This building, which formerly housed Landmark High School, has been completely razed.

Wow, this is just a gigantic plot of land. Considering the height we're getting at the much smaller Carnegie57 and Drake sites, would it be out of the question to see something 1500+ here? Maybe even higher?

The air rights acquired allow for something in the 1200s if I'm not mistaken. Given the let down of the Drakes design, I'm not so concerned with height here, more about the quality of the design itself.

They could build a 2,000' tower if they wanted, they only have 1.3 MSF of air rights, though. Something 1,500'+ is certainly possible--look at 432 Park and how they used the air rights there--but I would say something below that is more likely (1,200-1,300 is my best guess).

Man, I'd be very happy with a tower 1080 feet (320 meters) on this site, but I'd be even happier if she had be 1148 feet (350 meters).

But I think for this site, what most counts would be a good design.

I apologize for asking a question that had already been answered at the top of the page.

Absolutely not. Midtown needs to reclaim having the tallest building in New York. 2,000' is more like it but I guess I could live with 1,500' to the rooftop.

Yes, a possible 2,000' tower in competition with the 432 Park Avenue tower.

I don't know if you're referring to the same site, but Extell also owns some properties on 57th between 5th/6th.

So are you referring to a fourth site, or this site closer to 5th?

If you go up just a bit you'll see that Morten Williams is in one of the buildings being demolished. It is located in the old 225 W 57 building, the one being demolished to make way for this building. So you are talking about this building. But the supermarket is not leaveing (atleast not just yet).
