I wonder if Brexit will boost Manhattan's luxury real estate market. The British pound is now 8% weaker than yesterday and investors are searching for safe havens.
yes this 2 year window of exit should see a lot of money moving to US until things pan out.
I wonder if it will spark the second super tall boom with respect to ultra luxury? Could another 57th Street corridor be replicated?
There were two residential in the proposal stage that were set aside. One was the sutton place and I forgot where the other was. We might see a resurrection. But I think the bigger deal is that the current crop should see a surge in purchases. Makes me think this tower might not wait as long to offer on market. Might also help 80 south street get fast tracked. Maybe that other luxury residential dt might get a height increase.
Today is Archmodel Wednesday!!
I wonder what this is displayed in the background??
The background model could be 360 10th, based upon its juxtaposition to the old building that sits immediately to the east.
^^ I agree, RW!
It appears it could be. If that is the case, I like it a lot from what I can tell.
I believe it is the tower they're designing downtown, not the two bridges one, but the other one. The buildings match up at googles street view.
80 South St?
Yes, look at the little and taller buildings in the back, then look at google street view, it's obviously the same buildings. Then the smaller tower next to the tallest tower is another future development on the same block. And lastly look at the part of the model that's flat, it look like a pier in the ocean.
Great sleuth work, Dalton!
indeed, the smaller buildings could be One Seaport and the attached hotel. In this rendering, 80 South Street was actually depicted and the positioning looks similar to the model.
Wow, glad to know which building is that!Good job, Dalton!
No problem at all!!
just hope it is not to the same scale as Steinway. It would be 1000 feet tall at best if it was.
If One Seaport is 700' (dark shaded tower next to 80 South), 80 south looks to be twice the size, which means we're talking about 1,400' tower.
It was mentioned that SHoP has a couple supertall projects around 1,400' for NYC.
That IS interesting!
Wow! I never suspected that the darker tower was One Seaport. I assumed that it was part of the taller tower, which, in fact, appears to be 80 South St! This is the Age of Ramses, lads!!!
