Wow I'm really starting to like 220 CPS. Someone said it might look similar to 15 CPW and that's a good thing.

432 PA: 1,396ft

It's quite interesting that the limit seems to be about ~1,400ft. What the city really needs, is a real (i.e. to the roof) 1,600 or 1,700 foot tall building. Because as of now we don't have a signature tower. So I really hope the Hudson Spire can deliver here.
True. Something around 1600 or at least 1550 would be nice. I would go for 1550 minimum. Haha.. Are you listening Gary Barn.?

New: 55 Broad Street, 742ft (226m) and 53 floors. The project could be merged with 45 Broad Street (710ft, 62fl) resulting in a supertall.

Nice rendering of the Hudson Spire (roof 1,800ft, antenna 2,000ft) by Rey73:



Keep in mind, this is just a conceptual rendering and not the real deal.

Due to travelling / studying, I won't be online for a couple of weeks (~5). Feel free to update the thread and post any major info on New York projects.

Bleh looks awful. Worse than those banal office buildings on 6th Avenue.

But I still get the idea.
