It took Barnett about a decade to assemble the lot for One57. It's taken about as long or longer to assemble the site for 1 Vanderbilt. So when you see these large "pre-assembled" lots become available in Manhattan, everyone takes notice.

If I recall correctly, the top 500 or so feet of the Burj is a spire. If the HU tower had it's Spire counted in it's height (assuming to the top it would be 650m) it would stand roughly 2100 feet tall.

Just think about that if it was built today it would be the 2nd tallest in the world! Even taller than the Shanghai Tower!

Music to my ears! And yes, prices in Hudson Yards have been HOT HOT HOT. Let's hope someone with big ideas picks this site up.

If it was 2,100 feet it did eventually be surpassed by the Kingdom Tower, the India Tower, and Sky City. This building would need security. It did be a major target for terrorists since it will be shorter than the Burj Khalifa. She's number 2 ......

this whole marketing blitz could be, at least partially, a ploy to force related to big for the site, in order to protect their investment timeline.

I knew 2014 would be interesting. And I expect more possible new tallest buildings for NYC within the year.
BTW we have 3 towers with the possibility for over 1500 feet. Nordstrom, Schvo, Hudson Spire.
I'm telling you it will be a wonderful year!

This is sure to draw some major investors. Just to say one works in the tallest building in the city is something in itself. Its brownie points right there. I would be happy with 2nd place over the Burj Dubai.

^ I'm still not even sure what he meant by that. With that guy, it could be an actual 100 floors, and not just 1,000 ft. Either way it would be supertall.

All buildings need security. I don't know what type of extra security you are referring to, unless you mean some type of bunker base. But terrorist aren't obsessed with skyscrapers. They have more than enough ways to get you, so we really should stop assuming that if a skyscraper is built, it will be the likely terrorist target. Especially with so many easer targets for the picking.

Related has enough on its plate. I would be more interested to see what Sherwood does with its land.

Well, if this tower is developed along the lines of the "Hudson Spire" proposal, it would truly be the tallest in the City. Of all the current proposals, I can't really say with any reasonable certainty that any would be the tallest in Manhattan for a long time. Something approaching 1,800 to 2,000 ft probably would be though. We don't know how many other towers are in the works, how many will actually get built, which will be the last one of the current boom. But all of the other towers have predictable heights, based on demand. There really isn't that type of demand here on the west side (yet), so this would really be one of those "lets get crazy" developments, something extra tall just because. I think the City might need a little bit of that. Bring back the spirit of the Empire State.

We still don't know what form the tower will take.

Maybe this will be the signature tower Hudson Yards needs now that they cut the height of the north tower. Dear, Santa: this.

It's conceptual. I do like 'the sky's the limit' attitude this project evokes for the far West Side.
