That's the kind of architecture Lower Manhattan needs. What I would give for that tower...

the one we’re building now is better; it’s 60 feet wide, almost 80 feet deep, and almost 1,400 feet tall.
Great interview.

I'd only feel comfortable saying 'almost' if it was within, say, 20ft of the target (so 1380ft). But he is a salesman and a successful one at that so you know he's had his share of lies to get to where he is lol

I would not say 1350' is almost 1400' and I would not say 1380' either. Now you're talking when u get into the 90's then you could say almost. Anyway I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Believe me, when it's in reality 1390 feet, any article would say 'a 1400 feet tower'.

I assume that "almost 1,400 ft." means exactly that.

So probably 1390 or 1395 ft. You wouldn't really describe 1350 ft. as "almost 1,400 ft."

I don't see how that is relevant in a residential tower thread.

I expect no less than a 1,399 ft. tower now.

I dont like the new towering skyscrapers. They are definitively to tall and reckless for traditional environment.
New York does not have to replicate craving for status of Dubay or other arabic penninsula desert citys.

So are you gonna say to Morgan Freeman that he should stop acting in new great movies because his heritage is too big? Towers are what NYC was always best at (amongst all the other stuff), and It doesn't seem appropriate to ban this city from them, especially when new designs are as good as this one.

The problem right now is actually protecting valuable historic buildings from demolition. NYC has real problems with that.

This doesn't look like a Dubai building.

Also NYC actually has no problems with preserving old buildings, because most of the island is covered with them, landmarked, no less.

Yes i know. IMHO the developer lost the scale, especially in the near of the Central Park district. That is what I mean, the skyscrapers doesnt look like Dubay, but the absurd contest, how has the tallest, is like Dubay.

NYC can not win the contest of biggest skyscraper skyline against Dubay or Shanghai. But NYC can win the contest of livebility and urban street flair.
The new proposed or constructed ~ 250 - 400+x m skyscrapers without balkony and constantly closed window, IMHO affect the quality of life inside and outside make s a stifling athmosphere in the adjacent streets.

New skyscrapers for New York ? Of course, but not 400m monsters in tradition rich living areas.
