Lola Finkelstein and other greedy commies in NY kill me. Ironically, practically no one lives in the immediate vicinity of this tower:

Nice, another 400m+ skyscraper for NY. I will be glad that even with all the competition from Dubai and Chinese cities NY could be the city with most skyscrapers over 400m.

I agree! It's absurd.

Is the design final?

Very likely.
The facade has really nice detail!

I like the tower well enough, although i would have preferred a sleek glass tower with an interesting form, a true eye opener. I'm not a big fan of the color as it's a bit bland and the base seems far too stodgy for my liking. Don't get me wrong, the tower's height is impressive and the overall addition will be a major positive, BUT the location needs something more spectacular for this landmark locale. This is just a mediocre effort I feel for such an iconic location, and nobody could be faulted for expecting something more audacious here, of all places in Manhattan. This is the front door to the city for all intents and purposes, the grand gateway (no, penn station is not despite it handling more people!!). It's just a bit of a simple form which annoys me thinking of what could have been here. Something more strikingly modern would have been my choice, but no use moaning now as the design is final. The crown will surpass expectations and wow people. NY is about to get another beautiful spire which will make the ESB cower in envy.

Certainly is. The 'greedy commies' are needed to make sure the fat cats don't destroy the livability of the city and screw the average joe. Balance is required! I doubt NYC would be as livable without the other side. NY needs a balanced view, but pro development. However, that doesn't mean that these nay sayers are necesssarily greedy. They are acting as the counterweight to an onslaught of big money and power brokers. This fellow from London must have a devil of a time living there, with all the greedy commies stopping buildings due to all those "nonsensical restrictions" they have over there. Anyway, I disagree with them here. This is Manhattan, and the areas around train stations need to be built up high so that we cluster the tallest towers. Not only do clusters look much nicer than a bland plateau, they are good for preserving areas that need to be preserved by focusing development where it should be.

I like the base, but that's about all. It looks a little awkward, but I'm okay if it's final.

Well that is the best summary of the struggle that is New York I have ever heard.

I like this tower more and more. This one along with Nordstrom tower are my two favourite towers at this moment. I sow a lot of renderings of both of this towers, yet i don't distinguish them. They are so simmilar....

I think you were looking at the wrong renders.... there is little in common between the two designs....

This tower, which is 1,350 to the top of the crown, is amazing .

I think this is going to be a true icon! A testament to modern ingenuity and a classic in NYC. And that's not easy to do! I just love the detail in the facade.
