I am quite disappointed with Hadid. Its design is like a mix of Aon Tower in Chicago, and Verizon Building in NYC with an extraterrestrial base.

Hadid's proposal is a bit "shapy" i think... Not designed from user perspective but more as a pretty form standing inside a plexiglass box on a table. Kinda glad Foster won, thinking it will add nicer spaces to the city

Wow I missed this, thanks Robert for getting this going. I am thrilled with the prospect of a Norman Foster building on Park Avenue...this is fantastic.
Now if they would just get 2 WT back under way!!! (In my mind the best of the 4 WTC buildings)

The exterior is boring, but the interior is spectacular.

It's no Torre Verre, but it's hardly boring.

Although I preferred the designs by Rem and Hadid, this will still be quite impressive.

NY's status as world financial capital is fueling a massive construction boom during a deed worldwide recession. Imagine the list of projects when the economy is booming.

Perhaps then the investors in real estate will move elsewhere.

If i remember correctly, i've read an article that drew a line between economic recessions and building booms troughout
the last century. It would be rather lucrative to build when times are tough, getting better deals and lower costs.
