NEW YORK | 217-225 West 57th St | 1,550 FT | 131 FLOORS


My guess is we’ll be around 1000’ by end of May and top out before end of year.




I hope so. I want it to be topped out by the time I go to NYU this fall!


Congrats on getting into NYU, Wiggles.


While I’d really love to see this top out by the end of the year, I don’t know it will. That’s nearly doubling its current height in 9 months. I think we might be looking at another year for full top out - although I hope I look back at this comment in December and realize I was wrong.




I’ll give it another year to top out so by February 2019. Its at about 800ft now and has come a long way yet still has a ways to go.


Thanks Robert. This city played a huge part in that choice


Living in Greenwich Village is a great allure to NYU. It’s also a great school!




Nice shot, JC


Hard to take shots of 217 57th and not get 220 CPS as well

This is great video change skyline of Midtown Manhattan…but I want to say that why Midtown Manhattan going keep again and again skyline change?? I mean I feel terrible and sad that NYC want to make more tall, tall skyscraper like Willis tower, WTC etc thing like that. You know Midtown Manhattan should stop making change skyline skyscrapers. I like better skyline is 2000 and 2010 not 2020 whoa.
