Since the plot is small, I’d imagine that this will rise quickly.

This is going to be amazing.

Per NYguy on ssp:

"Prepare mortals, new supertall incoming. The two Fifth Avenue supertalls (262 the other) nearing construction will be the first of this new wave.

And they finally put the new design up on site."

January 7, 2022.

I’m pleased to see the new rendering up on the boards.

NYguy was a regular member of WiredNY years ago: he always had a lot to say, and knows about NYC construction. He was a ‘structural engineer’ and got a job at the NYC Dept. of buildings sometime after the eventual demise of WNY: I wonder if this is the same guy - or should I say same NYguy.

I bet some of the original WiredNY posters, some of who post here regularly, remember him; he was quite an active member. http://wirednewyork.com

Anyway. I do wish he would post here on YIMBY - who ever he is - as he has great news scoops on the NYC construction scene. This post being one of many.

Yes, and for me twitter, Facebook too. Glad I don’t play video games anymore; way too much screen time is a bad habit. This site has the best ‘educational’ value of all other on-line activities. One must sill limit the the screen time as a ‘best practice’ for social media.

Cheers.
