UPDATED 10:45 a.m., July 1: According to new renderings, Larry Silverstein’s New Proposed Development On West 41st Street will be one of the largest buildings in Manhattan.

If approved, the building at 520 West 41st Street will have 106 floors — a record for New York City — and stand 1,100 feet tall. Under the current plans, the development includes 300,000 square feet of retail space. The building will also include 175,000 square feet set aside for corporate apartments, as well as 1.14 million square feet of residential space.

The plan is to build 1,400 apartments, 280 of which will be affordable units.

Construction on the tower on West 41st Street is tentatively scheduled to commence in 2017 with a possible completion of 2020. [NY YIMBY] — Claire Moses

A prior version of this article incorrectly stated a location of a station of the no. 7 train extension.

    The 41st & 10th station for the 7 was dropped years ago. In fact, the MTA is not even putting in a shell for a future station. It seems like every article here gets basic facts about the city wrong.

    Hi Jleon85, thank you for your comment. You are completely right, and the story has been corrected. Thanks for reading!

    How many floors is the freedom tower? And how high are those ceilings??

    Currently the property’s zoning does not permit residential. Perhaps the reporters can investigate this fact, and why Silverstein thinks DeBlasio will let him build only 20% affordable?
