Both boxes are giant missed opportunities.

Not really unless you expected Ny office towers to suddenly break tradition. Developers of office buildings build conservative functional office buildings in ny. The spiral is a nice tower.

One Vanderbilt, 30 Hudson Yards, 3 WTC. Hell, 1 WTC.

Developers still know how to build slender aspiring office buildings.

Or otherwise distinguished ones, like the New York Times building, Hearst Tower and Bank Of America building.

It's a shame when $4B only buys a box.

I think the spiral is a more interesting building than any of those you listed besides Hearst. AT least the spiral tries something unusual and progressive.

It would totally dwarf the rest, including the WTC - probably ruin the skyline. Won't be happening anyway, way too tall for NYC, especially downtown.

Most likey place for a mega tall is probably on top of a demolished Madison Square Garden, if that ever happens. Maybe it would be possible there, but I don't think it's gonna be happening for a long while.

Midtown is the future, not downtown. Businesses prefer the transport links in midtown.

It would have been interesting to have the Hudson spire & Nordstrom towers go up at the same times. They design are similar that why I wasn’t annoyed when they killed HS.

This tower is at least more interesting than another corporate box like 50HY, and 55 HY. The Spire would have been nicer, but unfortunately I don't think that was an office tower so it wouldn't have been going up anway.
