Sweet! Can't wait to see the renderings. This will tower in the skyline of midtown south.

Promising indeed (but there's always a chance, that object-shaped skyscrapers end up being tacky).

718 foot tall KPF designed champagne flute... My expectations are astronomical.

So far there's only one top-heavy building that I know of in NYC, and that one looks pretty good. Hopefully this one will turn out nice as well.

I've seen the design and it doesn't really resemble a champagne flute. More of a wedge between the neighboring buildings. It's flat-surfaced, too - not cylindrical.

I don't really like buildings that have a lower part thinner than the upper part but I will reserve my judgement for when I'm gonna see this

Thanks for the info. Can you post a sketch? For whom do you work (eg, aarchitect, outside service, etc.)?

VG: No, it tapers all the way to the bottom.

Thanks, dude. I hope you feel better. I assume from your description that it's in the shape of a V.
