Again, unless you have specifically seen or heard any info to suggest that, I din’t know why you would bring it up. No one has seen or heard that information. And the new “woman” also had dealings with this project. No, its not complicated. Keep your head out.

1,500-Foot Tall Tower By David Adjaye Revealed As Part Of RFP Submission For 418 11th Avenue, In Hudson Yards







Quote:
While concrete details remain unconfirmed, the first Request for Proposal (RFP) submission for the site of a future supertall north of Related Companies’ Hudson Yards complex has now been unveiled. The ground-up 1,500-foot tall building would become one of the tallest towers in New York City by both architectural and roof height, on the site of the former Hudson Spire proposal. Sir David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates is the architect, while developers include Deryl McKissick, The Peebles Corporation, Exact Capital Group, and the Witkoff Group. The envisioned master plan would sit on a 1.2-acre lot, dubbed “Site K,” at 418 11th Avenue, bound by West 35th and West 36th Street, Hudson Boulevard West, and 11th Avenue.

Below is a rendering looking south at the edifice that has a prominent series of stepped cantilevers on the western elevation. The floor plates gradually increase in multi-level increments with the largest set being on the very last rectangular volume. It also looks like there will be a protected landscaped outdoor rooftop terrace, as well as another atop the podium.

The plans call for a total of two hotels, an observation deck, a skating rink, and commercial office space that includes a future headquarters space for the NAACP. The team expect this massive undertaking to employ 30,000 New Yorkers over the course of six years, create 15,000 permanent jobs, generate over $5 billion in new tax revenue for New York City and New York state over a 30-year period. 418 11th Avenue would become a major part in the state of New York’s $51 billion investment into constructing, redeveloping, upgrading, and investing in this section of Midtown, Manhattan’s infrastructure, commercial, retail and residential potential.

An outdoor terrace is shown to have planting, water features, and decorative railings, while these spaces are double-height areas framed by glass curtain walls and bronze-colored mullions.

Before and After: 2007 vs 2021

Super tall comparison!

Hold down control + move mouse wheel to make them smaller to better compare.

One city to rule them all in supertalls. Yet still none have 100 or more floors (yes, ESB is 102/103 floors, but it isn't really, as the spire does not have habitable floors).

That doesn't really matter. Several of the current and future supertalls could have 100 + floors easily. They just don't want to. They want high floor heights.

29 33 West 57th St has potential for a 1,100 ft tower. And it better look really good because I hear they razed an amazing building for this site. Otherwise that just pisses me off.

A big loss was the Bancroft Building. Remember that one?

And a crappy tower is rising in its place.

Yeah with some nice structures, I always hope the replacement is nice. The Bancroft was a loss, for what is replacing it.

Is it more expensive to incorporate the current structure? Go in, reinforce the base and other structural elements, update to the current go or whatever and then build on top of it. Hopefully trying to match the style, compliment it or at the very least not take away from it.
