As the financial capital of the world, there’s a virtually endless cycle of demand for new space. Indeed, for those who falsely think that working from home is the new norm... It certainly isn’t for Wall Street’s banking powerhouses.

^ Agreed. I work with clients in the wealth management space, and even here in Southern California, they are starting to return to the office, albeit at a far reduced capacity (less than 20%) and with strict mask mandates. Offices will come back. Likely not exactly as they were before, but they are not going away.

Well, hopefully we will get some great lighting that highlights the crown as such.

Yeah offices aren't going anywhere. There have been countless cries of "the office is dead" throughout the past 200 years, starting even as far back as the invention of the telegraph lol.

In the early 1900s as telephone netwerks were becoming widespread, all the futurists were saying that by the 1920's there would be no office buildings left in the developed world; they would all be converted to housing, and all the space-hungry, noisy, dirty urban commuter railroad networks which were rapidly expanding at the time were about to become just as obsolete as all the other ancient staples of urban life, like open sewers and garbage fires in the streets.

Similar predictions reappeared after the invention of the telefax machine, and then again with email, and then again most recently with the rise of coworking spaces. It just won't happen.

It will be interesting to see this start to take shape from 1 Vanderbilt and even the Chrysler Building when they open the observation deck.

When the Grand Hyatt comes down, we'll get a temporary completely open view of Grand Central like we did when the Vanderbilt site was cleared...

I'd take a 1646' version of Chrysler. Heck, there were 5 of them in the Wiz...

^ He's thinking, "Not bad, but could be better" Dude under the Ryder Truck logo is definitely a professor though. Nobody in any other profession rocks a sports coat with jeans like that.

I didn't even notice him, but you're right.

He found out he lost the role for Wolverine.



It's not shown in that early rendering, but I'm sure there will be mechanical equipment and BMU's up in that crown, as shown on Vanderbilt.

I haven't posted here in years but I keep looking here daily and I am glued to this sight and all the great projects that are under construction or proposed, etc.

I just want to say this skyscraper is truly iconic and says "This is NYC"! It pays great homage to the Chrysler Building and the surrounding area buildings. I really hope this is approved at this height.

He walked by Madison Square Garden about an hour before but is still disgusted by what he saw.

I'm pretty sure he's making a tears of joy face after seeing those renders of 1 Vanderbilt.

He's like "**sob**, its so beautiful... **sob** "

Dx: Genekaufmantilitus

The condition that causes paralysis of the face, facial drooping and muscle rigidity when one looks at a Gene Kaufman or Sam Chang project.




Prescription: 10 grams/mL of "175 Park" renderings straight into the dome via 2" IV drip. For serious cases, insert 40 grams of "9 Dekalb" solution rectally.

People are most at risk when they stare at blank walls or severe set backs due to the skyplane. Such situations require immediate administration of 9 Dekalb solution rectally.

Wayyyy too much effort is being put into this caption contest. That said, I'd go with:
