^ Lovely. Just compare 1 Vandy and 30 HY. Whereas 1 Vandy sticks out and tapers nicely, 30 HY is just "too short" for being the centerpiece of the yards.

15 Penn Plaza is still owned by Vornado and they still plan redevelopment.

Possibly a bit unrelated, but can anyone fill me in on what's happening with NYYimby.com Seems like there hasn't been a new article since February 21st. Did I miss something?

Same. I just realized from the email newsletter that the new URL is yimbynews.
I presume something screwed up and the old URL isn't redirecting.

Yeah its yimby news now. Also, be sure to check out the development map. That's something I remember Nikolai telling me 2 years ago that he wanted to implement. Finally coming to fruition.

Still in development, but it will be very comprehensive based on the current data.

Might be something that rises past 2020. I've heard figures being 2025. There were some renovations recently at Hotel Penn I believe. Probably in an attempt to extend its life another 10 years.

Right now though, I don't think the market could support a tower like 15 Penn., especially if it's all office.

I think given the area, the development potential, they should go big, and thus, wait until the market makes more sense to support a large tower on that footprint. A sacrilege would be to downsize any future development.

This in theory, could be a site for the cities new tallest. In theory it could!

9 Dekalb is u/c.

With that said, 10 supertalls u/c at the same time. 3 WTC being topped out.



Other supertalls complete are:

1) 1 WTC
2) ESB
3) 432 Park
4) Chrysler
5) NYT
6) BOA
7) One57

City has 30% more than the existing, complete stock u/c.

We haven't even got our trousers off yet as there is a whole slew of proposals.

45 Broad being one that comes to mind and will start very soon.



Now for towers 443 ft / 135m and up to 299m. Proposals. Gets quite massive once we add towers in the pipeline below 400 ft.

i remember back in the first few years after 9/11, some pundits were saying it was the end of skyscrapers (even over here in Sweden - but those were the same pundits who've always held the skyscrapers are inefficient and only about ego and oppress the working class). I wonder how many of those pundits remember even saying anything like that. People have a tendency to forget being on the wrong side of history.

Changes to this obscure rule could leave Midtown East streets shrouded in shadow
By Audrey Wachs (@gridwachs) • March 15, 2017

Quote:
The streets of Midtown East could get a whole lot darker thanks to changes in a little-known equation (outside of architecture, anyway) used to calculate shadows cast by tall buildings.

The city is looking to change a method developers use to calculate how much sunlight a building will obscure once it tops off. Crain’s reports that the Waldram diagram, as it’s called, will be toggled to encourage taller buildings in Midtown East as part of that neighborhood’s anticipated rezoning.
[...]
Quote:
The Department of City Planning (DCP) estimated that the rezoning will lead to the construction of a few new towers, so it’s unlikely that the entirety of Midtown East will be shrouded in perma-dusk in the future.

I could not agree more, this looks like pure architect puke. Or fart-chitecht design.

It looks completely impractical from an engineering standpoint, and it's downright ugly.

I just realized the Big Bend concept isn't a concept. It's a serious proposal.

it's not a serious proposal unless a developer proposes it. Architects design wacky concepts like this all the time.

That U-shaped tower is pretty cool - and interesting. Too bad it's not an actual real proposal with the backing of a developer (or is it?). Just seems like the news is eager to pick up what looks like a firm's design exercise to me.

New project in DoBro: 80 Flatbush
Tower I is almost a supertall at 920ft. Tower II is 480ft.

----------------------------

Re: 1 Vanderbilt:
Spire 1,401ft / 427m
Roof 1,288ft / 393m.

Quote:
Hence it's not the second tallest building U/C anymore.
