I love the Tower Verre, and the world trade center complex is great as well, but besides that a lot of the NYC proposals seem uninspired, including this one and especially 432 park. Why is this happening ? Especially in a city like New York which has architectural masterpieces like the Chrysler building and ESB

Not everything needs to be a masterpiece. This will ultimately be surrounded by supertalls (One57, 225W 57th St, and Tower Verre) so even if you think this it's uninspired, it will just be a filler tower. I think this one is pretty good for what it is.

You're misinformed. Other than NY, Chicago and Seattle are basically the only other US cities constructing skyscrapers at the moment, and not remotely on NYs scale. Moreover, those cities are building lame boxes. NY, by contrast, has the following masterpieces under construction or about to begin:

400 PAS
56 Leonard
BIG Pyramid
Coach Tower
One 57
Mercedes House
North Tower of the Hudson Yards
7 Bryant Park
Torre Verre
Riverside South by de Portzamparc
50 West St
15 Penn
2 WTC
250 East 57th St
Horizen Tower

In addition, expect something very tall and amazing at 225 W57th, let alone 855 6th Ave.

It's not new. ESB/Chysler are old man, from another era and a time when things were far different in skyscraper development. Wake up! Did you just miss the majority of the 20th century development in NYC? Take a look what was built between the 50's and the 1990's, and I guarantee you will see things today in a different light. Other than that, you perhaps are A) unrealistic about how expensive and difficult it is to construct those elaborate buildings in this economy, or B) you just don't realize that most buildings in high rise cities are fillers and that not every project can afford to have breathtaking design in the developed world today. Past is the past, NY is now moving on to a new era in design as is quite visible from what has been proposed.

NYC doesn't lack inspiration architecturally, or in any way. What about the Beekman, all the condos along the highline, or even the new Penn building? These are all architecturally significant buildings that completely define their neighborhoods. NYC leads in the design of chic, efficient building.

Also, I feel like you neglect to remember the need for efficiency in New York. Most designs that you will see in NYC are basic conservative forms with only cladding to work with. That is why I believe you think buildings are "uninspired" as of late. The fact is the buildings in NYC cost an immense amount, and no one is going to go "Dubai" for the sake of pleasing you. And aside from that, NYC has always been like this, as the guy above me mentioned. Look at other buildings from the same period such as the Lincoln Building, it looks uninspired and plain, but it's typical NY. The boxy conservatism of the modern day is nothing new, and in my opinion, we have much better stuff coming out now than we did in the 60s-80s.

No point in arguing with someone who clearly has their mind made up on something. Look at the list RW provided, it's pretty clear NY is not only building but building quality. This building is dull, but it's a 750 foot filler.

Also, I love how he glances over Tower Verre, a 1050 footer, and the WTC which has three 1000+ footers and a 977 foot building, so five buildings all north of 977 feet like nothing of substantial height will be built there.

Are you seriously doing this ? I said their are a few things I don't like about NYC and suddenly my opinion is invalid ? Their are a bunch of things I dont like about my city, tulsa. Their are things I dont like about Chicago, their are things I don't like about Hong Kong, their are things I dont like about every city. The only reason I said anything about NYC, was because I had just made a post talking about how great it and another city was in a appreciation thread, then someone else quoted my post and turned it into a city vs city thread, and i defended the city he attacked, thats it.

I was just talking about the buildings I had seen, link me to the buildings your talking about, you don't need to defend nyc. I think some amazing stuff is going up there, like WTC 1,2,3, Torre Verre, One 57, GiraSole. I was just thinking of a few buildings I didn't like... But at the time i had forgot the great buildings GiraSole and 0ne57
