Which is why I quit posting ever again on SSP. You are not allowed to disagree with god NYGuy, no other points of view. So I left that site, good riddance.

get your photos of the Chrysler Building from this western angle while you still can! You might be able to see it further north or south, but it'll be blocked closer to 42nd street.

its less chunky than what it was and it will be fairly slim for an office tower

I actually love the tapering effect for the upper floors, makes it distinct... I would love to see detailed renders of the higher levels, especially the observation deck. Like some have said, is this a perfect design? No. However it's a very good one and with a height counting the spire of 1,500 ft it will be quickly adopted as a modern icon of New York.

The building has the same problem 2WTC does.

Well, it's not really a problem, just a thing.

In renders, because of the irregular shape of the exterior, and depending on the perspective of the render, it can sometimes look completely messy and off-kilter. As though nothing lines up and it's all angled and stupid, like modern art or some crap.

That's because in a 2d representation, you don't get the depth-perception that completes the design. All of Vanderbilt's angles line up with each other, but in that diagram above, it looks like they're all completely different.

Which is why I think a 3d model of the building is far better. And the end product when the whole thing is built weill be perfect.

SL Green should probably just put out a render video with some flyovers and other moving views so we can get that sweet sweet parallax perspective.

I hope I'm not that far off when I make this comparison, but if this is somewhat from the same location, I will miss seeing the Chrysler from that angle.

Yeah, but there's going to be a very interesting visual dialogue between OVP and the BOA tower.

YIMBY reports that One Vanderbilt's planned height has been increased to 1,514 feet and that the tower's design has been refined/modified. The render doesn't really show many details of the building's upper part though which is where the modifications seem to have taken place. It looks a little Sears Tower-esque now. The bottom part of the tower seems to be unchanged. See link below:
http://newyorkyimby.com/2014/10/heig...feet-tall.html

I'm very happy about the height increase. Haven't made up my mind about the new design though. More detailed renders are needed, I think.

1,414 to the roof! Willis Tower is 1,451. We need 38 more feet!

Don't think it will get another increase. Especially if the design has changed. Looks pretty final.

Hmmm so no chance of a more substantial spire eh? Carriers pay out the a$$ for a place to hang their antennas.. And a taller spire allows for more antennas.

IMO, no point in having a decorative spire as part of the crown if it's just going to be covered with equipment.

Nice to this is now 431m to the roof or 461m to the spire! I do feel like they're going to tweak the spire height to fit the new proportions though

That's great!
The design looks pretty much the same; the only reason it looks slightly different in the render on Yimby is because of the wide-angle lens effect...

Compare these two drawings below; the tower looks slightly slimmer (possibly due to the increased height proportions) and the crown has better proportions!
So I'd say the design is pretty much final; and that any people who previously complained about the crown looking off will hopefully be satisfied

the crown has not changed. It's just the angle.
