Let me try, I've never heard of such a thing.

I use tinypic, though I heared opinions that it might not be such a good hosting site

imgur is not perfect as I've seen dead pictures on this hosting as well. But for the moment it's definitively better solution than tiny pic, or especially imageshack as it requires logging and limits uploaded pictures for one account.

I use Imgur, and it works great.

tinypic is quick, but regularly pics get lost.

It's a wonderful thing.
Yes well, Philadelphia's City Hall Tower is an architecture masterpiece that is complimented by the nearby glass towers.

The Empire State Building is also a very well designed masterpiece in it's own right.

With such potential for architecture design, the sky's the limit for NYC.

Wow! The bottom clearly is office space, as Barnett stated. Maybe one of the large law firms seeking space has expressed interest to Extell.

Nice find!



Read the article, it says 1250.

Agreed, RW. I'd also imagine hedge funds, or private equity firms are drooling over those views. I'd be interested to know what the middle box is, maybe a small hotel, or mechanical and residential amenities.

The shape isn't quite as nice as I was expecting, however the facade looks like it could be really interesting, a sort of Tower Verre meets the World Produce Centre. The facade also looks like it changes, in the second photo, if you look at the top section, it looks like it changes from the X bracing to a more vertical one. The crown also sort of reminds me of the New York Times Tower. I'll hold out until we get some more renders, but nice find germantower.

The height isn't that impressive but the design is incredible. I hope this gets built

@ Yankeesfan1000

The floating middle box is a designer hotel component of this tower, with teracces on top of it, and on top of the office component, in the lower floors.
