Multiple news outlets are proclaiming Silverstein Properties' new tower for the far West Side the "tallest" and "largest," in the city and the nation. Simmer down now, and get your facts straight. Yes, based on the environmental impact statement, it's going to be huge, with 104 floors and 1,400 apartments. That said, it's going to rise a mere 1,100 feet, which is almost 300 less than all-residential 432 Park Avenue, while two other residential supertalls rising on 57th street, at Nos. 225 and 111, will be 1,423 and 1,350 feet, respectively. Keep things in perspective, people. [previously]
