This may be the beginning of a new possible supertall
We’ve been watching this for awhile. There’s definitely a thread already. Sad to hear it will bite the dust. More prewar on 57th lost
Also, it’s being replaced by a roughly 20 story boutique office building.
If I’m being honest, there is so much ugly bullshit in the section of town, they could tear down Carnage hall and I wouldn’t care. I would never go for a beautiful stroll through this section of town to enjoy the architecture. There if far too much ugly clutter to get any sort of enjoyment.
I’m all for them building mega talks here an leaving the rest of the attractive parts of the city alone.
But their greed is endless and there will always be some cheap-ass developer that wants to ruin NY a little bit more. That’s the sad reality of America’s Capitol city in the 21st century.
440-foot boutique office tower designed by FXCollaborative. Too bad, I would have liked to see the pre-war base preserved with a tall, slender residential tower added on. Hopefully the design will be nice.
(PS there were two threads when I searched for 123 West 57th, mods could you merge them?)
that sucks, wasn’t there a 700 foot proposal before this?
