i like this more than tower verre. but than again i hate tower verre i think this building isnt bad nor good, so im good with it. its kinda nice to see that a building in new york is tall and doesnt have a unique design, because it kinda bugs me that most towers there try to be unique and then make the skyline less simple and beautiful.

Is it not already taller than the Williston roof with this tower being 433? I could be wrong though.

So true! You can't have too many unique buildings or it will make the skyline look weird. You have got to have simple designs as well to balance it out. I can't wait to find out what the surprise will be... Maybe a spire? Although I think the tower verre is a beautiful building.

No, it's shorter because the roof of the Willis Tower is 442 meters tall

Not quite. Willis's roof is 442m (1451ft), while this is suggested to be 433m (1420ft). And for comparison, Guangzhou's tallest building, Guangzhou IFC is 437m (1435ft), and Shenzhen's tallest is Kingkey 100 which is 442m (1449ft). So if this thing does go to 433m, it would stack up quite well in the world

And Kanto. I'd appreciate it if you didn't answer a question that was directed to me.

For me this building would be a perfect edition to nyc's already extremely impressive skyline. For me simple is better for multiple reasons:
1. it costs less
2. it is structurally more strong (usually square buildings are)
3. floor space can be used efficiently
Plus I just like the way it looks.
Don't get me wrong though I love original designs also but for me I find it very disappointing how many people have come to hate simple geometric designs.

Well said. There's nothing wrong with simple shapes as long as they're constructed with quality in mind.

From what I see, people really took seriously the height and design of this building. Nothing has yet been confirmed. But of course, would like this project to be confirmed.

And even if this building is a box (and this height), I do not really care. New York is a city that is moving toward the future, it will be common to see such bizarre structures.

Anyway, I find it unlikely this project be approved EXACTLY this way. Surely we will see some changes (either in height or design).

Now I'm certain, this will be my favourite building in NYC
