Imagine a Manhattan where 1WTC isn't a pinnacle, but just part of a plateau.

That's where it's heading, and it will be glorious.

I mean, there are parts of New York that are getting eerily Coruscant-ish. Especially the spires on 57th.

And unlike other major cities with a lot of skyscrapers, like Hong Kong or Shanghai, some parts of New York feel like they're underground. The only other place I've felt that was in Chicago, beneath the El.

A 400m+ skyscraper going up right in the centre of downtown, and I don't think if you asked people on the street a single person could name it. Where else in the world does a supertall go unnoticed. Where else is a 400m tower boring?

^ Yes, the canyons of Manhattan are unmatched. That's the great thing about NYC: all those 400m+ towers are being built in the urban fabric. No towers "in the park". The density is just incredible, and now supertalls are rising adjacent to existing skyscrapers. You could say they nearly touch each other.
Then of course you get that eerie feeling when walking down the street. The street is busy, people and cars everywhere. Density too. And then you look up and see those behemoths.

It doesn't get better than this: (future Tower Verre)
