I am not against boxy buildings, but I have to say that there are boxes and boxes.

First, I don't find the ICC boxy, look at a picture of it, the facades have a slight and elegant curve, with a special treatment of the corners and it doesn't have a plain courtain wall either.

The NYTimes building is rather boxy, but I consider it has a exquisite, yet simple facade design.

The destroyed twin towers were a pair of boxes, but their size, the fact that they were two of them, the way they were arranged, diagonally, make them an authentic icon in the NY skyline. They have also a good and very simple facade design.

Park 432 is not one of my favorite building but I don't find it bad either.

For this one, I think it should have some kind of sharp crown in order to somehow blend with the ESB.

I hope it will be much more massive than the extremely slender 432 Park.

This looks to be a bit out of proportion. It looks to be nearly double the height of One 57 which is 1000 ft tall and much taller than the top of the ESB antenna, which is 1,450 ft tall (and 20 blocks further south / in foreground).

I think it is about right, at 1550 ft it would have 100 feet more than the ESB antenna (an it will be in a ground about ten meters more elevated, so add another 30 feet) The picture is taken at about the same height of the spire of the roof of the ESB and from a far point of view, so the effect of perspective dininishes. Also it is hard to tell, in that forest of buildings, where the bottom of ONE 57 is.

That why I said it looked bad. But I did try to make it as accurate as possible, just look at the mid mech floors, in real they are at 300m so the same height as One57.

I was in the city back in September and all I can say is wow! This would be incredible. Why should they have all the fun in the Middle East and Asia?

Here in Nashville they tried a 1057 foot tower and it got cancelled after 5 years of planning. I hope you guys are not as disappointed as we were. When stuff takes this long, sometimes they fall through. Good Luck!

No it's just a pipe dream from some phony developer called Gary Barnett.

I don't watch the news anymore but the only time a tower was mentioned was 15 Penn's proximity to ESB. No mention of 432 or one 57(until sandy). Chances people won't know about this monster til it's breaking through the skyline.

Exactly where did the height number "1550" come from?? Any news links or articles? Is "1550 ft" close to roof height or will it have a spire that's 500ft, lol? ..or is this thread just made up or fake?

1550 feet to the highest floor, the actual roof/crown of the building probably somewhere around 1650 feet. This is a real proposal and will start construction within the next year or so.

It is the height of the top floor and it came from the official permit documents that the developer sent to the city (they are called permit documents aren't they, but no matter the exact name of the documents it is as official as it only can be).
