This building is horrific. It soars with the grace of a penguin. I hope it wasn't the final rendering.

It's a shame they had to tear down a beauty for this.

Its not the final rendering. Think of it as a vision or a work in progress.

A rendering that may actually be the final product or close to the actual proposal should come out sometime mid year.

An article in today's NYT suggests that Fernando Romero Will design this tower, although Freidman said most recently that Safdie will design it. I think it was just lousy reporting.

The Bancroft has been removed. I think my finger was over my phone lens, sorry. I didn't see any new signage/renderings on the construction fence.

HFZ owns a few small buildings on 29th Street which are still occupied, and it owns a pretty big vacant building on 30th, together with a smaller one. Demo has not started for any of these.

HFZ can build a very tall tower with 400k SF.

There's been a lot of pre-demo interior clean up occurring daily on the big brown POS on 3Oth St.

This is a huge site. Since the entire site sits on side streets, it doesn't lend itself to having a huge retail base. Therefore, HFZ could potentially build very high!!

I don't know how comfortable I am with tall buildings on 5th Avenue. I mean, the ESB has to keep some prominence, doesn't it?

It will lose it prominence. 30 Hudson will make it look small. There is too much demand and not enough room for developers to not build tall. Its only a matter of time before a site near it gets redeveloped into a supertall. If 15 Penn lands a tenant, it will happen.

Yeah, but at least everyone entering the city will still see it and point to it. It's still the most recognizable/iconic building in the world. When supertalls start popping up on a straight line with it, that will go away.

I doubt it. Its an iconic treasure and even if it's surrounded, people know it, and will visit it. Due to the popularity of the city, and also with multiple observation decks, all of these towers that open such decks will be tourist magnets. Rockefeller Center never lost its charm, and it will be surrounded or in close proximity to many more supertalls.

Will the ESB loose its dominance on Midtown below 40th Street? Sure, but it won't loose its iconic status. Same way Woolworths never lost its charm, even though it now seems lost in a forest of steel and glass.

We must also give a chance for new towers to become New York Icons. ESB is a 20th Century masterpiece, and now, we need one that will define the 21st Century (Steinway Tower for example). Its time of stardom can't last forever as the city is not a museum. It is a growing, urban construct of human endeavour. Even with Steinway, who knows what may surpass it, but that's the nature of the city. Things come and go, but they will not be forgotten.

Could This Honeycomb Tower Be Moshe Safdie’s Bancroft Building Replacement?

The rendered skyscraper appears to align with a block-through development site near the corner of West 29th Street and Fifth Avenue that has been assembled by Ziel Feldman’s HFZ Development. That site was purchased from the Collegiate Churches of New York in 2013 and was partially occupied by the striped brick and limestone

That looks like Safdie's style. It's kind of a mess, but who knows.

I was trying to place the little building with the copper green cornice and the one just to the west with the orangish terra cotta facade. They're located at about 25-27 W 31st.
