Smile NEW YORK | NoMad Tower | ~1100ft/~335m | Vision

This may turn out to be something real, but for now there is nothing concrete to go on.

Mystery Flyover: Video Reveals Possible Supertall South of the Empire State Building

Architectural rendering firm AJSNY produced the short film, which illustrates an approximately 1,100-foot tower rising just to the south of the Empire State Building. The skyscraper’s block appears to be that bound by 28th and 29th Streets, and Broadway and 5th Avenue; conveniently enough, the apparent parcel is currently vacant, and is the site of one of the neighborhood’s largest remaining parking lots.
The Municipal Art Society’s Accidental Skyline map shows hundreds of thousands of square feet of unused air rights on the block, so the area is certainly ripe for a tower if enough development rights can be bought. The zoning on Fifth Avenue allows residential use while the other parts of the block can only support commercial uses; what the makeup of this tower would be depends on which part of the block it sits on and whose air rights the developers got ahold of.
Height is certainly something NoMad is becoming increasingly familiar with, and several notable projects are rising in the vicinity.

another "NoMad Tower" proposal by Fernando Romero EnterprisE architects:

Quote:
NoMad Tower

YEAR: 2013
LOCATION: New York City, New York
SCALE: 37,161 m² / 400,000 ft²
STATUS: Proposal



With the rich history of the area and its location within the rapidly changing NoMad district, FR-EE’s proposal for a new tower brings innovative architecture into the fabric of New York City, from the streetscape to the skyline.

The proposed tower is compressed at its center, places a conventional massing on the North of the site, and creates a public plaza on the South side. The manipulation and pinching of the form in the middle of the tower acts as a direct reflection of its program.

The lower levels are allocated to a hotel with a selection of curated upscale restaurants and shops, while the upper levels are reserved for residential one and two story apartments.




it's listed as a proposal, but I don't know if the project has a developer. 400,000 sqft, so likely >200m.
