Great boxy masculine buildings. NYC thankfully doesn't do too many Gherkin or other "flowery" buildings. Thankfully it has retained its manly roots.

Not really, 50 Hudson Yards hasn't even entered the construction phase – the massive brick building on that site is currently being torn down.

I agree with this whole heartedly! - NY is V masculine!
Compared to Abu Dhabi or Dubai - which ironically, considering the treatment of women there - has a very feminine skyscraper shapes.

Same with Chicago. Although I'm fine with those flowery skyscrapers elsewhere, they won't fit US Northern cities because they have that cold, gritty industrial feel and history.

How is security being handled in this area seeing that this complex is like 7x bigger than the world trade center?

London doesn't have a cold, gritty industrial feel and history?! British cities created the cold, gritty, industrial feel before America even existed

London does not even have a skyline to begin with, and whether a "flowery" skyscraper fits in or not in its skyline is a debate way off the chart
