The old design was dated. the new one is more elegant actually. But in the end, this is a massive assemblage of towers so expect the whole to exceed the sum of its parts.

I'm also happy about the facade, which will change peoples minds when thinking about the whole place being full of just glass towers

It also reminds me of 111 West 57th a lot, is it the same architect/s?

I also liked the previous setback design more, this design is trying too hard to be original.

Very good looking tower and a great addition to the skyline.
Agreed. I prefer this new design... to my eye it appears to soar more and I appreciate that.

Different architects. 111W57 is ShoP architects while this I believe is KPF.

Honestly, the more I'm looking at it will look pretty damn tall and imposing because of its size and shape.

Below is a better image of what will be the cladding and just imagine it in its current form.

I'm falling in love with this one's redesign. Reminds me of Lotte in Seoul where the square base transfers into a circular floorplan.

The new residentials in 57th street and 432 Park have much higher ceilings.

Anyway. I love this new design. The old one was pretty good as well but the new renders convinced me.

this is soooo much better than the old design. the old design had too many setbacks and got too thin towards the top, this one does not do that far better. the hudson yards area is by far the best looking proposal area for skyscrapers in new york. very modern unique designs that play along with each other, the way it has too be. they all fit together well. it reminds me a bit of moscow cbd before so many things failed there, hope hudson yard will not have as many delays and weirdness going on.

MUCH better! Looks great and makes the cluster look better in my opinion. The massing and setbacks on the old design were poorly thought out

The new design also has a lot more granite on the facade so it will counterbalance all of the glass.

The setbacks of the old design complemented the other buildings better. Next to the North Tower, this just looks like it gets in the way.

For me I really loved the old design but had 1 big problem with it. Some angles the tower looked really huge and fat. Maybe if they had trimmed it a bit and made it higher would have been perfect.

I was put off initially with the design change and I gotta say it has grown with me and think I prefer the new design much better. With the cladding and this being practically the same height as one57 is going to make this look even taller because of it's trimmed and the spiraling cladding. It will look impressive looking up at it from the base.

I like that. Only glass in that cluster isn't good IMO.

I liked the setbacks of the original, the tapering effect but this is very interesting and I'm liking it more each time I see it. The illusion of a spin or twist in the glass if I am seeing it right? Plus we're now officially at supertall designation, so I'm happy even with the haircut and shave of the North Tower.

There is a bit of a twist, just in the facade.

The odds are that this design will still be tweaked. It may even get taller. Ross will live in the PH.
