Yeah, that's one thing that's sort of bugged me about the redevelopment of the HY neighborhood. It's like a tabletop mesa rising suddenly out of a flat desert (I feel similarly about the skyline for Downtown Los Angeles). I'd like to see some of the more mid-scale buildings linking the new supertalls to the shorter neighborhoods to the North and South. Phase II will be helpful in that the development will descend more gradually to the Hudson.

While we're at it, we might as well ask for Manhattan West and HY Phase II, even if they're preliminary designs.

There's a big chance that other, maybe smaller towers will appear near HY sitie which will act as a buffer along with highline. I wouldn't be so worried about alienation of this complex.

Maybe I'm being stupidly optimistic but I feel one day a building of at least kinda close to this height could be a reality. After 9/11 everyone swore we would never see 1000 footers again in NYC and we already have 3 in the 1400 range underway, we're definitely going in the right direction.

9/11 only slowed down the development of skyscrapers very briefly

It makes everything else look like toy town. Just amazing how those cities in China and ME will look with multiple 600m towers. They truly are the modern version of what Manhattan once was in terms of skyline aesthetics.

Most of those 600m towers are in different cities, no city has/will have that many 600m buildings, at least not in the near future

On that off-topic note, I think Burj 2020 in Dubai will be the first megatall in a city that already has a megatall.

I was thinking Shenzhen. Dubai hardly even needs megatalls with all the space they have.

Doesn't anyone think it's ironic that New York might just have a 2000- footer called the Hudson Spire, and Chicago might just have a 2000- footer called the Chicago Spire?

Speaking of a disjointed mess, Is the design of this tower likely to change? I hope so because there have been several proposals recently for New York that are bland and mediocre, I think this amazing city deserves a higher quality of design.

Yes. It's not a real design, just a hypothetical sketch for use as a sales tool. Whoever buys the property will hire a proper architectural firm to come up with a proper design.
