This disgusting bastard would ruin Manhattan's beloved skyline from most perspectives.

Damn, stop this madness!

That's not an official render, it's a model to put into perspective the effect a building that large would have. It will be a box, but those images STR so kindly posted don't reflect what will be built. We only sort of know height, and that it's a box. So everyone relax.

Sure. But a box at that height and location is nothing but... ridiculous.

I agree, with what we've heard which has been hearsay, I'm not thrilled. But let's wait for a render, boxes are all about the details and we don't have any thus far.

wow. I just realized something. If this gets built, NYC could potentially have 4 buildings that are 400+ meteres high to the roof, those being 1 wtc, 2 wtc, this, and possibly the north tower of the hudson yards development. That would be impressive.

^Only three. 2WTC is 1270ft to the roof, which is only 387m. Unless the 1429 figure is real and actually the spire height and the roof is indeed 1349ft XD

This was posted by RW on SSP. I am VERY curious what it might mean.

Might he mean even more height? Maybe it'll be taller then Willis's roof? XD Or even ACC's spire?

I wonder to what height such a thin structure can rise. I'd love to see it taller than 433m but I wonder, wouldn't it be just a core with a facade if it would rise any higher?

Probably not much higher.

I like it

It just needs a spire on the top and it'll be fantastic

The proportions are definitely odd. If it had half the height it would be Ok.
