The new tower will comprise 2.9 million square feet of office space, becoming one of the largest such buildings in all of New York City, with a soaring and substantial design by Foster + Partners. YIMBY featured a fresh batch of images back in July, which give a decent idea of just how prominent the 985-foot supertall will become on the Midtown skyline.
Building applications for the entirety of the skyscraper remain missing in action, with current filings confined to the 887,600 square foot and 12-story office base.
Mitsui Fudosan’s stake puts the project’s value at $3.6 billion, and with excavation and demolition continuing to make quick headway, the tentative 2022 completion date seems to be well within reach. BlackRock has already signed on for 850,000 square feet of space.
