Count me as one of those who thinks the spire comes back later ... with 432 and Steinway close, I have a feeling that a nice lit spire would cap this beautifully. Hard for a developer to pass up an icon status since NY has always been defined by its peaks.

Off topic, but 220 is shooting up!

behold the bugaboo ! . .
no appropriately proud American Apex here . .
this greedy knave ain't handing NYC any proud icon . .
He's discreetly castrated his talented architects . .
delivering the city, a most annoyingly inconsequential,
vertical turd-bar . . gross end up . .

Obviously coddling Asian cash, . .
is his primary sweet little cup-o-tea . .
But, should Mr. Barnett happen to somehow . .
wake up & smell the coffee . . renounce his mad villainy, . .
resume his former, heroic, civic-minded developer-self . .
by boldly re-crowning Gotham's new mythical colossus . . (re-SPIRE-ing CPT) . .
I'd offer fervent apology for my hogwash, with gratitude . . . .

but under NO circumstances, . .
must his new spire get goofy, & politely centered . .
It must be lavishly befitting . . sovereignly asymmetrical . .
vehemently clutching into the crown's corner indent . .
and be of elegant restraint and proportion . . in other words . .
precisely as it was previously designed and rendered . .

If you look closely, Mona Lisa is smiling. Just a PSA, but Mona Lisa is pro development.

Depends on the angle, but barely. Not a noticeable impact, even though its about 330-350'' or so. Although you can see the crane. I'd say 7 more months, and it will start to be apparent or obvious. Once it reaches that 500' mark, that will be nice. Kinda how 220 CPS started to really be noticeable. Its still going to come as a surprise when this continues to go past the 1200' mark. To the common folk, the ones who don't keep track of buildings, it will be a wow moment. Kinda how 432 Park started surprised people. Nobody was expecting a 1,400' toothpick, but... it happened. Just think of how freakishly tall 432 Park looks, and know that this will be 150' taller. Likewise Steinway, slightly taller, but thinner!!!

Is that the full footprint of the tower? Looks a lot thinner than I thought.

Still quite large in a way.

A shot from October 2015. Get an idea of the foot print.

You all know, I worship NYC skyscrapers . .
and far be it from me, to put a damper on your sweet observation, Chris . .
I appreciate the wit . . but then, . . our lovely Mona was on Lee's wall . .
and development has killed her . . . Tearing things down can sometimes
exact a very high "quality-of-life" price . . It should be worth it . .

Lee's was the only decent art store in that neighborhood . .
Lee's, NY Central supply, Pearl Paint, . .
the great NYC art stores are all but gone . .
Compared to some of these great professional art places . .
chain-stores like Blick, feel like craft-outlets for amateurs . .

If you're on an art-supply internet site . . you can't open a jar of paint . .
smear a fingertip of pigment around on a piece of paper . .
to see its opaqueness, its matte-ness, luster, or true color when it dries . .
Most of 57th St. "Billionaire's Row" ain't gonna feel so cozy . .
Stores won't have affordable items for your average bloke . .
affluent shops can project a cool, aloof distain
onto average "just looking" customers . .

The vibe of Big Money in a neighborhood, can sometimes elevate the spirit . .
sometimes it can feel empty, dead, & cold . .
I just hope this highest of glass peaks . . at least,
makes us regular folk, feel proud . .

The tower has a large, awkward footprint. The highrise part of it has a difficult to define shape due to the cantilever, which we don't see yet. Stay tuned, it will shift again.

Are there renderings of the podium levels?. Those wavy slab edges mean a wavy facade, presumed curtainwall. Could be interesting.

You've never seen a rendering of the Nordstrom I presume. It will have a similar look on both 57th and 58th.

Whats up with that enormous cornice on that historic building on the right of that rendering? That cant be original to the building.

It is original and the building is landmarked. It isn't perpendicular like that IRL though, just a crude render
