I believe that the following article regarding an, as of yet, undisclosed tower by BIG refers to Tishman's Hudson Spire. Although trading has been limited by Dodd-Frank, it certainly will come back, and I suspect that this tower will have an enormous trading floor. I speculate that JPMC will anchor it, although Deutsche Bank or HSBC are also candidates.
"To welcome his staff to their new home, Ingels calls for a midmorning champagne toast. Someone plays Sinatra’s “New York, New York,” and then Ingels gives a speech. He rattles off a list of exciting projects, many of them not yet public, including a second Manhattan skyscraper. “It’s not every day that you do a 1,200-foot tower in New York City,” he quips. “But it feels like every day.”"
Also, earlier in the article, it refers to four BIG projects that will transform the Hudson River skyline. We know about:
- 200 Greenwich;
- The 57th St pyramid; and
- The HFZ project in Chelsea.
I'm unaware of a 4th. I believe that this refers to Tishman's HY tower!
