The portion of the property facing Park Avenue is a whopping 60 feet wide, and the "deepest" line running into the property from East 56th Street is about 100 feet. I was thinking the tower would be much skinnier than those numbers, maybe half the depth of the property at around 50 feet. I wonder where Zapatan got that 93 foot number from? Zapatan?
I'd like to build a model of this thing just as a gag and plop into it my Austin model.
The portion of the site fronting Park Ave is
narrow, but is irrelevant because the tower is not located there.
The portion of the site where the tower is located runs the entire width of the block from 56th to 57th street- ~200ft. That part is also the width of 5 townhouses, which comes out to ~100ft. Plenty of room for a 93ft square tower.

It's all in the nydob filings.
