Could NYC’s next real estate boom see the rise of its first megatall skyscraper? Plans have been drawn…

seems a bit too generic to be an actual design proposal for something. It reminds me of this vision we’ve seen before. If it is legit I bet whoever runs that instagram account will be in trouble though lol.

Apparently it was designed by SOM

It’s on the site of the park central hotel, which is owned by LaSalle

Very intriguing. It’s nice to see that there are at least conceptual plans for a NYC megatall. The fact that a huge firm like SOM is involved indicates that this isn’t just some pie-in-the-sky vision. I hope that whatever gets built has a better design than this generic glass tube, though. When I picture NYC’s first megatall in my imagination, I always picture something with classic NY setbacks and a nice crown. This has neither so it’s disappointing to me from a design standpoint.

I wonder what that tall, slender building in the background of the rendering near Hudson Yards is. It looks way taller than 30 Hudson.

high resolution. The rendering was done by atchain. They also made a few PABT renderings along with some for high profile projects around the world. That being said, most are visions.
