That's my favourite! it's the most iconic proposal, very sci-fi yet very realistic to be build.
But my favourite view of that project is this:

Some real awe inspiring designs. Feels like such a tease though given how the odds are stacked against these projects happening.

Pingan would fit so well into NYC. It is the ESB of the 21th century

That will depend on which design they pick, but I like the megatalls as well.

Which one could be the most realistic??? I don't know how FAA would react for the 700+ m proposal... I love the SOM's proposal, it's simply breathtaking.

^The FAA has approved 700m skyscrapers before, in Chicago. I don't see why they wouldn't approve ones in Manhattan.

I can tell you the future. We are awaiting years and years of bs talking in this thread with no actual information being posted, because apparently new york's visions are exclusively allowed in this section of the forum and even called proposals (of course nobody will change that status because visions are officially not allowed here ).

As this is my first and (hopefully) last post in this thread I will just say that SOM's vision is really epic. It would be first on the world scale. But I doubt we will see something like that anytime soon. For many reasons.

Really? Towers like the Azerbaijan Tower are in this forum section as well and I'd say this is still far more realistic than the Azerbaijan Tower

Khazar Islands which Azerbaijan Tower is part of is Under Construction. Also AT is proposed by an actual developer for a certain location and it has it's proposed time-frame. Madison Square visions are not proposed by any developers and there is no schedule for the project. It is even not clear when and if whole redevelopment will be legally possible. You really can't see the difference?

Weird enough you want this thread to stay here although you were supporter for the idea of moving Kingdom tower to proposed section for no certain reason. It seems location is crucial for you

They could use carbon fiber reinforced composite. Although that would probably make it extremely expensive.

Those islands aren't the tower, their construction says nothing about the tower. That's like making a proposal of a small family house and next to it a 1114 meter skyscraper and claim that because the family house is under construction, the 1114 meter tower is realistic. Also the fact that it is being developed by a mysterious local investor doesn't add much credibility at all

But I'm not saying that the Madison Square proposals are gonna happen, not even that I think they are gonna happen, because I'm skeptical about them. I only say that they still are more realistic than the Azerbaijan Tower and that they still are proposals and this thread should stay in the proposal section.

And no, this has nothing to do with the Kingdom Tower, and no, location has nothing to do with it

I'll make it simple to you.

design without developer - VISION
design proposed by developer - PROPOSAL
