Yes. But it looks like there are vertical water scrims on the facades on either side of the entrance.

It’s possible. That would feed directly into the pools of water.

Yes. That’s what it appears to be. It’s like the huge vertical water scrim in the plaza at 535 Madison.

Funny how that first site diagram (#1) shows Madison Ave on both sides of the building.

Sorry if this is asked/answered before, but is there an official rendering model of the building? (tapered design?; original design?)

Even JP Morgan Chase was looking to flee the area, and would have if the city caved in on tax breaks for a move. They just happened to be fortunate enough to own prime real estate that could suit their needs. When this tower is complete, we'll be halfway toward the midpoint of a new century, but the heart of Manhattan will have fresh blood.
I get it. Change is inevitable especially in a prime location like Park Ave. which is why it has many high profile buildings to begin with. Hopefully the new building is worthy of replacing the old one (I have not seen renderings)

As far as I’m aware from comments on this site, no.

That’s why I feel they should have released a rendering. In the end, when the new tower is built, the old building may appear inconsequential in size, (like the old Marguery Hotel before it), and in the grand scheme of things. But it would have been nice to publicly have some idea of what’s replacing it, beyond the graphics submitted to the DOB. Those graphics tell you nothing about the quality of design, though I’m sure it will be great. Never thought we would get renderings of the Grand Hyatt tower before this one, but here we are.

Very efficient removal. No major incidents. That's all we could hope for in a large scale demolition like this.
