Renderings of planned super tower unveiled

Renderings of a tower that could be coming to the site of a former Mercedes-Benz dealership on West 41st Street have turned up and they are, if anything, extremely ambitious. Silverstein Properties is developing the massive residential tower at 514 Eleventh Avenue, which wants to bring a massive 1,100 foot “high-rise luxury, mixed-use development” to the site.


Let us make it happen!
