The tallest building in a city is always iconic. You can't miss such a building when observing the skyline

if this buidling has a visitor platform it will be higher than the platform from the wtc1 and much more heigh than the platform from the ESB. NY has 2 famous platforms now, maybe in a few years 4 of them, ESB, rockefeller, wtc1 and this one

Except it won't be the tallest, or the most important. And it'll be so thin that from many angle you might just miss it.

I agree that 29 meters is rather thin but I still think that it might become the new icon of NYC.

This Tower would be so famous because it is very narrow.

I like the tall thin box as an addition to the skyline. Can't wait to see it finished!

A geometric concrete exoskeleton holding up the glass innerstructure looks so simple and nice...

No, it doesn't. What a horrible 70s brutalist design. Please, please NYC - don't allow them to build this crap.

And this sucker of a box is the reason why the Drake Hotel and the little gems next to it had to go?

It will look good. Especially if they build it at 420 m

Disgustin is still a too positive adjactive to be used for this monster. It is one of the the ugliest proposals, i have ever seen. No matter what it's cladding will be, it will be a gargantuan tall BOX, with no appeal, nothing. I hate it too much.

That's Tower Verre. And in the future please don't quote a chain of images that's on the same page.

Thats the planned Tower Verre, next to the MOMA. It's on 53rd street, designed by Jean Novuel and will be 320m tall. It has its dedicated thread somewhere.
