It won't have rounded corners or setbacks. It's a VERY DISAPPOINTING tall box.

Vinoly is a star, as are the people who work for him. Look at what he's doing in London.

Cheap "developers" are to blame. Thank goodness that Hines is around and that this schmuck is not solely responsible for NY's future.

Well...at least it's economical. And any monolith that high is definitely iconic. Maybe some sort of interesting night lighting could save this project.

This building could use some sore of crown pinnacle, it would turn it from lame to genius. Lighting would surely help as well.

I hated the Beekman, One57, the new WTC at first, and got used to them and love them now. But i don't think i will ever love this one, and i hope it will go to the never built section. Height is not everything. Furthermore, it is def. too tall for the area in question.

The location, and the height, and the knowledge what stood there, all factors are screaming for something iconic. And all Macklowe and Vinoly think of, is a simple ugly box, with a Park Avenue Apple shed infront of it. -.-

I think he is the architect. I didn't know who that was in the picture at first either. And all of you disliking the design, yes it is boring, but it still has potential in it's cladding and it's lighting scheme at night. Yes the shape is boring, but other factors could yet make this tower nice.

You can't infer from his post?

That is the developer, Harry Macklowe.

I disagree with many of you. I find this design to be very nice. Geometric designs age better than many other designs. Congradulations to NYC!!!

holy ****!

is it really 420m tall?

it would be a higher roof than wtc1!

if they will build it, first they will say its boring and to big, but after a few years this tower is a landmark from ny.

personally i like this tower and it will give a WOW effect when you look from the street of this building

its like trum world tower but mutch more height

the idea is very good

just build a huge tower and everybody wants to buy a appartament in the building and you can sell it to very very expensive prices...

According to measurements STR did for SSP, this tower has a height of 433m and a width of 28,6m.

I like the original international style buildings, like Lever House and Seagram, because they were the first ones to be build that way. But in 2011 i think, we should get over this boxes, which e.g. destroyed the appeal of the lower Manhattan skyline, when seen from Brooklyn to a certain degree.

This one, would def. not add sexyness to the skyline, rather make it less apealing than it is now.

The Verre, One57 and i hope the other Extell biggie will give the skyline class and new heights, while this one will give it just height. I beg that the shown "renders" arent what we can expect to rise in such a prime location.

Instead of grabbing the once in a lifetime chance of a 433m building in midtown Manhattan, to make it an icon. They just try to build a big money making box. if Macklowe would be a genius, he could take this chance as a big PR thingy, to make this tower an absolutley good looking gem and advertise with it. The big box, wont do anything, but disappoint...i rather sacrifice a supertall in NYC, than having this.

my 2 cents
