I think once on tower can easily get this high, then other towers will soon be proposed to be built just as high. For example, say there's a city where its highest 30 buildings range from 750-1000ft, then one building is able to go to 1200ft. Sure it may stick out or whatever but that building just raised the boundaries, now cooler or taller projects will want to be built. Soon enough, the top 30 tallest will be 900-1300ft.

Lower Manhattan is beautiful, whereas Midtown is a messy concrete jungle.

As most cities
The exception is Benidorm, where in some areas new buildings must be at least 25 floors tall and there's no maximum limit, in order to make buildings thinner and free space at street level.

Am I the only one who finds this building too skinny, too bland and too unoriginal? Just because this thing's 1,400ft doesn't mean it's something to crow about. Honestly, i'd prefer the Drake back. This building is completely underwhelming

I don't know that I liked the Drake all that much, but no, you're not the only one who doesn't love this tower.

If the building ends up looking exactly like it does in that render it will be amazing IF they make the glass just as reflective as that on 4 WTC.

hopefully I may just add. This building would look stupid with reflective glass. The power of this design is its structural facade and the contrast it will make with the glass, thus it definitely should be dark green/black or something close to this. Let just leave mirrors for fullglass wtc boxes.

It's my understanding that the metal panels will have a brushed nickel-like appearance with. reflective glass behind them. This will look very sleek and shiny.

That won't be a long wait.

I am just amazed how many supertalls are now in development or UC in New York at the moment.

The city will likely have up to 10-15 supertalls in the near future, with over 350 150 meter towers.
