This one is shooting up in a hurry - seems just like yesterday I read about this project for the first time.

Today... it's almost higher than the residential building just to the north. I's say it's roughly 1/3 complete?

Just as an aside, I thought the financial clusterflip put the kibosh on that one. Is it being resurrected?

Yes. Aby Rosen (the developer) is moving forward at 610 Lex.

Putting distance between itself & its neighbor now... I can't imagine the facade is too far behind... given it's ~30 stories tall at this point.

I look forward to 237 W54th rising... not because it's pretty (ew, the design is heinous), but because it'll cover up the nasty backside of 1715 Broadway. It's a shame the 4-story building in between 237 & 250 W55th couldn't have been incorporated into the plot...

From yesterday,

I love this pair of buildings!


Anyway, the DOB says this building will be 753 feet tall, but it also says One57 is 953 feet tall (highest occupied floor).

I'm guessing there's a chance this could break 800 feet?

Once it gets a little taller I think people will discover it. It's surrounded by taller buildings, but will soon start to poke its head out. Thanks for all the great updates.
