30 HY looks terrible in that render. Shrinking it ruined it for me. This tower doesn't seem as bad as I thought.

This is a somewhat different design, interesting. However, the diamond-like design in the center makes the building look like its wearing a jock-strap.

I don't like the Culture Tower at all, but this is the wrong thread for that. I'm undecided on 50HY, it's a bit boring, but also reminds me of many classic NYC buildings, except in a modern way. Haven't made up my mind yet on whether I like it or not. Is the design we know the final one?

probably not, but they're probably set on the setbacks and facade for that much detail to be included in a rendering.

The perspective kind of makes it look like 30HY is leaning on 50HY, anyone remember the skyscraper leaning on another in Cloverfield?

Great scene. Can't look at Time Warner Center without thinking about it.

Anyway, what's striking to me is the way the two massive towers at 30 and 50 HY, even when "leaning" in opposite directions, will obstruct so much of each other's views. I guess those views aren't that critical to pricy office rents, but you kinda think things would be a little better if the towers were thinner (aka, taller) and offset further from one another.

Still there is something pretty magical about two ESB-sized behemoths practically rubbing shoulders like that. Not even the Twins were that close together.

I still think this is terribly misplaced, but I may change my ,mind if we get some more detailed renders.

I know ALL of you are not particularly enamored with the current massing...

I wonder if it would be possible to use the old Equinox tower design for 50 Hudson and add a couple more set backs to the top for this design to be supertall at 1,050 - 1,100 ft??

As far as I know this is all office space. The e-tower had those great aerofoil shapes due to condos/hotel. That won't work here.

Like I mentioned before ICC in HK has the same amount of floor space(with a hotel), I hope the final design here has similar proportions.

Yea as far as I know 50 Hudson is 100% office. KPF could get a little more creative to achieve an office version of the equinox old design.

I agree the ICC would be a perfect tower. It would really look great in the skyline.

I think I'm getting some people confused so my apologies.

That rendering I posted is the old rendering for 35 Hudson Yards (E-Tower, aka Equinox Tower) and will not be used anymore.

Since it will not be used, I posted it in this thread to suggest that Related should transfer that design to this development (50 Hudson Yards)

Both the current 50 HY massing and the old 35HY design are kinda like wedding cake look that have the set backs needed to not completely block 30 HY tower when viewing from the North. This is why I believe they want to make 50 Hudson with all those setbacks and I assume if they decide to change the current design, the new design will probably have this feature.

Gosh this new numbering system with the addresses can be confusing. Lol
