I accidentally put improportional instead of unproportional and you discredit everything I claim? I think a megatall would kill New York's skyline, and you don't. A handful of people are on my side and yours as well. It's just a difference of opinion. Then you go and state that I claimed my opinions were facts. Just because people disagree with you on something that's honestly so utterly insignificant doesn't give you merit to say that their opinion is wrong. Quit acting like a child. Don't you have anything better to do?

Back on topic: I don't recall whether this was stated here or on SSP, so I'll go on: I read an article a few days back stating that this tower would be a combination of a shorter 300-400 foot skyscraper built in a more historical style on the western side of the plot integrated into the main 1,550 foot design, which would be post modern and clad in a slightly blue tinted cladding.

What's being build in New York that's 441m?
I assume he is referring to 1 Vanderbilt/51 East 42nd Street.

Also, GiraSole is projected to hit right around 400m.

New York City has no skyline?You make me laugh.The Hudson Yards alone would put 99% of Asian and world cities to shame.Please,come again.

New York City is the only developed city that develops of this caliber and magnitude,not even developing cities can compare at the current state of development New York City is undergoing.

That sounds good. We'll see what they come up with.

But Romania is an EU country. You could move to London and after a few years move again to New York. You're lucky you are a US ally compared to your neighbords (Moldova, Ukraine, Serbia)

The problem I have is people complaining about height, and stupid comments like the one that 'New York has no skyline.' Sure, I could move, but I don't move to a city for its height.

This is NYC. We'll find out what the building looks like when it's completed.

Don't know if this is news for you, but I post it here just in case:

NYC Developers Race to the Top

It’s a race to the top as developers are reaching higher and higher with impressive glass skyscrapers that house exclusive apartments and panoramic views across Manhattan, level with some of the city’s tallest buildings. Gary Barnett of Extell Development Co. is the man behind the 1,005 foot high One57 tower in Midtown Manhattan. He announced last month that he would be developing the tallest residential building in New York City (without the help of a spire). Adrian Smith, chosen as the architect for the job, is best known for his work on the Burj Dubai. The new building, still in its early stages of design planning and financing, will tower over the Empire State Building at a planned 1600 feet, that’s just 176 feet shy of World Trade One, the tallest building in Manhattan.

Nice how they say: the tallest residential building in New York City (without the help of a spire). And then: at a planned 1600 feet, that’s just 176 feet shy of World Trade One, the tallest building in Manhattan.

I agree, there is no reason to move to a new city for skyscrapers unless you a skyscraper fanatic or one who is bored with your low rise city. Obviously you are not that into them.

1600 feet would be impressive That's around SWFC height.

It could if it stacked 13 mechanical floors measuring 20 feet each on top of it. Highly unlikely, but possible. A parapet would help as well.

This is quite literally the most idiotic thing I have ever read on the entire internet. Bravo. I'm actually proud of you in a strange way.

Work, family, friends, cost of living? None of these things matter in your choice of city, right? Only skyscrapers. Good god.

OT: The developer seemed pretty adamant about having this building be tallest by roof height in an article a few pages back, so I wouldn't count on a large parapet. Regardless, this thing is going to change the skyline so drastically it will make people's heads spin!
