The Big Bend isn't a real proposal. Nothing will detract from the Tower Verre. It is a stunning design in it's own right. The taller 111 W. 57th rising just to the north is also a stunning tower, but neither will detract from the other. Just more pieces to the stunning puzzle that is Midtown. When Steinway and Verre are completed, there will still be room for addition to the skyline, it won't be complete.
