The footprint is a square with a side of 94 feet, the building is 1398 feet tall, so that makes it 1:15

Great work gt!


This tower could turn out okay at least. Still I don't want it to have a flat top.
And it's unforgivable what was torn down for this.

According to Vinoly, it's 19:1.

I also would have liked to see the old buildings preserved. However, people's perceptions will change when the sleek metal and glass facade begis to rise.

1,398 / 93.5 = 14.95. The 19 to 1 ratio is wrong.

Couldn't agree more. It's thin enough to be the world trade center's spire! I am wondering if this is wide enough to even be called a building

It's 6 meters to short on the diagram as well, it's taller than the Twin Towers.

The main issue is that Manhattan never seems to learn its lesson, despite the city obviously regrets many of the urban planning lapses of former times.

19:1 comes directly from a conversation with Vinoly.

Who in their right mind would love to have a residence there on the top floor... this building screams trouble if you ask me...

Yes I am not an engineer, so all of my concerns might be stupid, but still, this is not a building I would love to be on the top floor... I mean look at this.... it is just a stick....

Seriously was it so damn hard for the designers of this building to add some fat to it? It is ridiculous, both in how it looks and imho in how it will actually operate.

"oh look I got a condo at 1,400 feet... now I am checking the weather channel just to make sure it stays there"

And yes, again, I know little about engineering, but so do the rest of the people who are about to spend money to get an appartment over there...

I don't know of any buildings (except maybe some Chinese low rises) that went down on it's own. Yup you are clearly not an engineer
