Developer Hines “quietly filed” plans for a shortened, 1050 foot-version of Jean Nouvel’s “Torre Verre” earlier this month. The tower, on 53rd St. in Midtown Manhattan, will be located on land sold to Hines by the Museum of Modern Art in exchange for$125 million and three floors of new gallery space. Originally designed in 2007, the tower has seen numerous setbacks including a 200-foot “haircut” by the City Planning Commission in July 2009 in response to its impact on views from the nearby Empire State Building. The plans are compliant with two special permits filed in fall 2009. According to a department spokesperson the application is “chair certification,” which doesn’t require public approvals.
