Love it!

It has flat sides from the east and west but tapers when viewed from north and south, pretty cool... it also looks like London Shard with a spire in the first pic

Just the thin spire doesn't really fit i think. Though the rest of the design is great!

Here, took me a few hours, but maybe this will give an idea on the dominance in the skyline including the towers that might rise around it.

A bit thicker and tapering to the top would be best I think. Still decent enough though.

Off-topic: Somehow it slipped under my radar that the 15 Penn Plaza thread is gone and no one is talking about it anymore. What happened?

Very nice edit it might actually be taller then that shows as the spire of the boa tower is 1200 and this is 1292 to the roof, it will definatly be a great addition

As I had mentioned, I wish the top gets tweaked a bit, but seeing this has made me appreciate it a lot. I would not mind if built as is.

Damn dude, great work. Here's hoping the Hudson Spire turns out even close to that huge. Would be a total game changer.

yea, nice work Xoltage.

Is the placement of the towers right in regard to the Spire and 432 PA? or is it just the vantage point playing games on me?

Shouldn't the spire be more in line with the ESB and 432 PA more in line with the 57th street towers?

Please remember this is an amateur modeling based off a few renders. It will likely have a thinner body so the top won't look so small. Like AW said it is only 1.6 msf, this won't be a fat tower like BOA.

I like that this is a big hearty tower, and not a skinny one like the rest that have been proposed outside the Hudson Yards and the WTC.

It's the vantage point. We're looking at the grid from like a 45-degree angle, so towers on the east end of a corridor (432, ESB) appear much further to the left of the image than their eastern counterparts (Nordstrom and 111, Hudson Spire).

I've been thinking a fair amount lately about what the best vantage point will be to photograph all of the new towers in a single frame once they're all built. Almost every angle will have some supertall obscuring another supertall, which is just crazy.

I hope it's not really fat, at least it will be huge though

Of course. Please don't get me wrong, I'm not criticizing your work in the slightest- the renders you made are extremely well done, I'm just not crazy about the design generally. The bottom of the tower is nice, but the top really needs some help.

I didn't think you were, it's just we really have no clear indicator of the proportions. Take a look at this:



It is so thin here, AND it gets a height bump? The height bump could be purely a taller crown since the square footage is the same I assume.

I believe that graphic shows a 1.3msf tower at the time as originally intended but now they are building a 1.6msf tower for TD.
