A shame that they didn't use the potential of the plot to make Ten York the tallest flatiron building..

Going to be incredibly dramatic when it is finished.... right now it looks like a ship!

I'm not sold on the idea of the world's tallest flatiron shaped building; that would be monolithic and overkill. But I think the tower shape could have somehow echoed what
is happening on the base without simply carrying the sharp flatiron shape all the way up.

I would have loved a full flat iron building. They could have used curved glass at the apex (to make the interior space usable/appealing) and tapered it up the tower to give it a sail like appearance. Big opportunity lost imo, but it will still look good.

Yes, that is the downside with having a clear blue sky being reflected. Almost makes one wish for the olde days and a bit of smog.
