New York-based developer Gary Barnett has filed building permits for a 1,550-foot (472-meter) tower at 225 West 57th Street, which would be one of the city's tallest upon completion. Construction equipment is already at the site, where demolition of a grocery store will make way for the skyscraper, according to the New York Observer.
