Damn. My gut says that's too good to be true (those are the same architects who designed that beautiful hotel in Brooklyn that was never really intended to be built), but I hope to hell I'm wrong.

Cool. Me likes lots!!

It looks too nice considering where this tower will be located being near the Lincoln tunnel. If Silverstein decides to go condo with these towers then it's a possibility however my bet he is going rental here. IMO, the free standing twins would be a more realistic design.

Not feeling it, really... Don't think it fits in NYC and there's already a ShoP 'grande arche' replica planned in the city.
If it was thinner, maybe.

The second concept is more daring. But I think the first should have been chosen because it is more profitable after analyzing market research.

The basis of the project reminds me a food shop such as Integral Yoga Natural Foods. I think it's cool to have this under a mostly residential building.

The first is much better, hope that one is chosen.

Silverstein doesn't do daring architecture. It's all about David Childs at SOM and his rhomboidal (or just square) boxes.

Woah woah woah! I know I said that the infinity pool concept was going to be even better than the one in Singapore... But this emulation of marina bay may be pushing it too far. Thatoneguy is right; this is eerily similar to the grande arche... But hey it's still sweet looking.

an arch and a pyramid at the two ends of the main portion of midtown's skyline... that would be interesting

It doesn't fit at all but I don't care. I vote yes to a new landmark tower. Chances are slim though.

Also like how it mimics 2wtc from certain angles.

I think that last idea looks great. Gotta see more of it though. The only negative thing about it is instead of 2 towers it is 1 tower.

There already already pi buildings in Paris and China. New York doesn't need to copy that old design.

So you'd rather have two regular buildings that have been done again and again since the birth of the skyscraper?

If copying old designs is your problems I don't see how you'd prefer the first concept.

That's a stunning proposal, but I highly doubt that it will be built. This is a lousy location next to the Lincoln Tunnel. Silverstein will go with a cost-effective design.

Then again, the design that I had posted was subsequently removed from Visual House's website.

That's a shame, this building would be just amazing for NYC

The fact that Visual House recently removed the image that I had posted from its website suggests that maybe it was an old design.
