NYC is not Jeddah.
NYC is the birthplace and heritage keeper not just of the skyscraper, but of classical highrise AESTHETICS and urbanism.
Oversized, simple geometrics (the ring) donīt impress, especially not for NYC.
I lament each old, classical style midtown rise that get demolished to give room to a new glass structure.
I thought Manhattan had enough space that it was largely avoidable.
If NYC demolishes its past, it will eventually be exchangable with Dubai

I think you're underestimating the sheer size of NYC and its inventory of great older buildings. No way would it ever reach a point of being exchangeable with Dubai. Also there are plenty of architectural treasures in the other boroughs. NYC isn't just Manhattan.

Yeah, maybe Iīm underestimating it. Its 18 years since I last visited NYC, so memory isnīt that crisp.

Just to avoid confusuion: I didnīt refer to One Vanderbilt as horrible, but an unrelated proposal depicted and discussed on page 9 of this thread.

Some people were commenting on the clunky nature of the top. I think the podium that the spire sits on has some mechanical elements that are functional to the building making it somewhat necessary, but just for fun I did a rough photoshop to see what it'd look like with a "cleaner" top, spire and without.

What are the two round things at lower right with the holes on top?

They are wasting no time here. Once this reaches street level, i expect it to grow like crazy.

This building looks almost exactly the same as the one from an anime called "5 cm per second." Maybe that is where they got the idea from. Just slightly change a few dimensions, and it's the exact same tower.

The tower in the anime looks a lot taller, and more stylized than the that building in Tokyo. For me, it still resembles OVP more.

want some?

Moving back on topic, I really look forward to seeing this tower breach the skyline. It will be years from now, but the wait will be worth it.

It looks like about two months to finish the concrete shell, after they finish digging the foundation and then it will start rising towards street level.
