Archilier Architects has published renderings of a pencil-thin skyscraper the size of the Empire State Building at the former Subway Inn site. And they could very well be working images of the planned project.

First spotted by 6sqft, Archilier Architects, the firm behind the “Hudson Rise” mixed-use skyscraper being developed by Kuafu Properties on Manhattan’s west side, has released images that point to what may be in store for the assemblage at 143-161 East 60th Street between Lexington and Third Avenues.

As The Real Deal previous reported, Kuafu purchased the 28,619-square-foot, six-building site for $300 million form World Wide Group last year.

 

The renderings show a thin tower rising 1,240 feet high with an area of 411,700 gross square feet. That’s just 10 feet shorter than the Empire State Building’s height and just one-fifth of the floor space.

If built, the tower would become the tallest building on the Upper East Side. [6sqft]Christopher Cameron
