So, did 432 park rip off this design, or was it the other way around?

It's incredible that this project is starting so soon! I thought the earliest possible starting date was some time in 2014, great to see that this is progressing faster than I expected.

This ain't no outlying area....this is a busy area as any in the "New York Metro". Good to see more pop up in the area. We need a Chinese/Dubai style construction boom here in the good ole USA.

I completely agree with you. A boom like in the 30s would be awesome

Love the designs, hate the grass and trees. The developers need to make up their mind on whether they want beautiful buildings or a private park.

I think they should have both. There is nothing more important than to have easy access to nature. I wouldn't want to live in a building next to which there are no trees

The real skyscraper building boom in New York was in the 60s. Hundreds of big boxes

Won't happen again probably, but the current amount of new towers isn't bad too.

Probably not but if even half of what's proposed in the NY area gets built it would be the biggest boom in decades

If they want nature as well as a view, they should have their go at the big three going up on 57th Street. Much better view, and not a block to a beautiful, natural, historic park.

Agreed. Hopefully we can get developments like this happening outside the New York metro too. Atlanta could really use some added residential density like this.
