Imagine a Manhattan where 1WTC isn't a pinnacle, but just part of a plateau.

That's where it's heading, and it will be glorious.

I mean, there are parts of New York that are getting eerily Coruscant-ish. Especially the spires on 57th.

And unlike other major cities with a lot of skyscrapers, like Hong Kong or Shanghai, some parts of New York feel like they're underground. The only other place I've felt that was in Chicago, beneath the El.

A 400m+ skyscraper going up right in the centre of downtown, and I don't think if you asked people on the street a single person could name it. Where else in the world does a supertall go unnoticed. Where else is a 400m tower boring?

^ Yes, the canyons of Manhattan are unmatched. That's the great thing about NYC: all those 400m+ towers are being built in the urban fabric. No towers "in the park". The density is just incredible, and now supertalls are rising adjacent to existing skyscrapers. You could say they nearly touch each other.
Then of course you get that eerie feeling when walking down the street. The street is busy, people and cars everywhere. Density too. And then you look up and see those behemoths.

It doesn't get better than this: (future Tower Verre)

Just a shame Verre isn't taller... it is still gorgeous but would have loved for it to be tall enough to stand out more, and with its bigger neighbors nearer Central Park alas it will be less an overall presence. Locally though it will be still a gorgeous one, easily among the most beautiful of all the modern towers. Great render of Verre as part of the great skyscraper canyon street fabric.

I don't think verre needs to be bigger to "stand out more" . I mean Chrysler is shorter still and it stands out...classic designs like this don't need height. And this is definitely an instant classic

No, it's been described as a placeholder by the developer. Since it's Viñoly, it's not crazy to expect something boxy, but we've really got to take that render with a mountain of salt.

Yeah, I myself have been hoping for something that hardens back to some of the great downtown spires of the early 20th century, like 70 Pine and Woolworth -- all narrow towers which are, interestingly, being converted to residential because of their slender profiles. I just don't want the roof to be exactly lined up with 1 WTC.

With most of the old-school downtown skyscrapers being converted to residential opens up demand for new soaring office towers, right?

Well, let's not forget about the upteen millions of unleased square footage in the WTC buildings (built and unbuilt) and Brookfield Place.

Brookfield Place is leased. They were wildly successful.

I agree! Brookfield had been very successful with their leasing efforts with 95% already leased according to a NYT article published in September. By now, it's pretty darn closed to fully leased. There was a time i was wondering what the heck the people at WTC was doing losing out to Brookfield Pl.

But when you think about it.. The leasing efforts at WTC imo, is pretty successful as well considering how much space they have to fill. I know.. the WTC project has gone for ages, but really towers started rising withing the last couple of years. That was when potential tenants could feel they could commit because they were finally seeing that this is becoming a reality.

Leaving out 3WTC out of this for just a sec, since it has just started going vertical... Between towers 1, 4 & 7 WTC, they are 70% leased!!

7 WTC is 100% occupied and 1 WTC is 63% and 4 WTC is 50% leased considering those towers had just been completed. Not bad at all imo.

Now that 1 & 4 WTC towers are basically completed, lately we are hearing more news of securing tenants for the towers as expected. Once 7 WTC was completed, they fully filled up space quickly & expect the same thing to happen here for 1 & 4 WTC.

As Tower 3 completes, i expect to see the same. All this new leasing news for the WTC really bodes well for 2 WTC imo. Maybe a tenant or 2 signs up for 3 WTC, then Silverstein really focuses in getting 2 WTC secured with an anchor.
