I like the Drake Hotel design a lot, looks like a simple tube-like tower. Cool to see NYC possibly get a non-office supertall on par with certain Far-East towers that are all residential!

I wouldn't exactly say that 225 w57 is approved because no plans have been submitted to be approved. Not to say that approval should be a big deal since it will be an as of right tower.

^^ you're right, as far as I know there haven't been any DOB filings... I'll change it to proposed.

possible new render for the Manhattan West Towers:



note that the final height remains uncertain.

other news: 1WTC is now 1070' tall, making it the 3rd tallest in New York (after ESB and BofA).

This was posted a couple years ago. Is this one still going to be built? If so, it'll probably steal the spotlight from the Empire State Bldg., but at least the ESB would have a friend.

imo, if a major building goes up that close to it, it should be just short of the 86th floor(ESB) so that, at least, the mooring mast & antenna are still that vicinity's highest point. The ESB should continue to dominate its neighborhood.

Its height and location remind me of the the long elevator ride Tom Cruise took at the end of Vanilla Sky (that tower was obviously CGed).

Personally, I think that if they build a square tower that tall, it should have a much larger foot print and floor area. Trump World Tower, by the UN, has a larger foot print and it's still a bit on the extreme side. And TWT is still well over 400' shy of this Drake.

Yes, it's going to be built as soon as a major tenant is found. 15 Penn is already approved, it's probably only a matter of time until we here some news about a tenant.

No, the ESB had it's time. NY needs to move forward; new (supertall) towers will rise near the ESB, whether we like it or not.

Agreed!

The ESB is great and all but it shouldn't stop taller buildings from rising. We don't want it to be another Philadelphia city hall...

ESB will always be the king skyscraper and the Chrysler the most beautiful (in my opinion).

^I am amazed that this was approved, given proximity to central park and the trials experienced by the Tour Verre (The latter is in my view, either the coolest rendering in history or quite simply the best looking skyscraper of the past 50 years [along with Bank of China in HK)

^^ Yeah, Tower Verre certainly is a marvel. Shame it had a height reduction whereas this monster will likely be 400m tall. Seems to me there's no such thing as justice in the skyscraper world. :|

I quote myself:
Quote:
It's a real pity, Tower Verre should have been 400m and this dull box 320m! But no, the best design in like 40 years gets a height reduction...

Is that building the box the Empire State Building came in?

Yeah I am, and if the design is right, and if there is a demand then by all means build a 2,000 foot hypertall. Also yeah I hope something like that happens. Some sort of signature building for the Hudson Yards.
