Cylindrical 1,300-Ft Tower Planned for 265 West 45th Street

The developer behind some of New York City’s most prominent projects  - such as Central Park Tower, One57, Brooklyn Point, and One Manhattan Square - Extell Development, is preparing to raze two vacant four-story buildings at 724 and 726 Eighth Avenue in order to construct another supertall tower in Midtown West.

The photos in this article are a proposal for the chrome-clad cylindrical 1,312-foot-tall office building Extell is considering to construct on the site at the corner of West 45th Street and Eighth Avenue.
The super-slender building at 265 West 45th Street.will have sky lobbies on the eighth, 28th, 49th, 71st, and 81st floors, offices on floors 81-93, an observation deck on the 96th floor, and and underground parking garage. 

The A, C, and E trains and the buses at the Port Authority Bus Terminal are a short walking distance to the south. 

There are also connections to the 1, 2, 3, 7, N, Q, R, W, and shuttle to Grand Central via 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal. 

The heart of Times Square is to the east, while a plethora of dining, retail, nightlife, theaters, and other entertainment options surround 724-726 Eighth Avenue.

A start date to the demolition and completion of the project has not been announced yet.
