Developer World-Wide Group’s new tower planned for 250 East 57th Street has foregone sharply-angled setbacks for a boxier shape, according to new diagrams.

The design plans filed with the Department of City Planning suggest the original plans by Skidmore Owings and Merrill have been discarded in favor of a new design at the same 715-foot height, the blog New York Yimby reported.

In total, the building will be almost 500,000 square feet, stretch 59 floors and have a total of 268 units, with everything above the second floor residential. The 25,000 square feet of commercial space on the first two levels will still include a Whole Foods, according to New York Yimby.

Two schools originally located on the site, the High School of Art and Design and Beekman Hill International elementary school were both moved to clear the way for the redesigned tower. [NY Yimby]Julie Strickland
