The most recent redesign of Tower Verre, Jean Nouvel's MoMA tower, calls for a shorter building than originally planned, at 1,050 feet and 78 stories. The architectural drawings for the redesigned tower came to light in August; now, New York YIMBY spots some fresh renderings on the website of architects Adamson Associates. The archibabble explains: "The design features a faceted exterior that tapers to a set of three distinct asymmetrical crystalline peaks at the apex of the tower – each peak varying in height and shape." Inside, there will be 100 hotel rooms, 480,000 square feet of residential space, and 52,000 square feet of MoMA expansion.
As New York YIMBY points out, older renderings for the project can still be found on developer Hines' project page. Here's one:
