Yeah, that render isn't accurate. Verre is too tall, 432 is too shiny, and all of the rest of the 57th street towers are missing. There are also other towers planned throughout the city that aren't in the render (Vanderbilt, the rest of the WTC, Brookfield Development, 520W41st St., etc.)
The development plans of NYC are fairly ambitious right now, and it is hard to keep up with everything.
The main thing that is needed is more height- Verre's cut is an example of that.

Every time I see a full rendering of HY there are completely different towers in it.

Ha, yes. 35 HY changed yet again? Only two more revisions to go until it's just a box

Moronic. Developers are really trying to squeeze out every last dime. This should be stopped.

The designs thus far have been iconic. Wait until the final design is released before you commence your usual NY bashing.

It's obviously an issue with putting the last bit of marginal profit above design interests. I'm not bashing NY, I'm bashing developers and clients who continually degrade the initial exciting proposals into more profitable but banal boxy structures. You could see this here. In the beginning the tower was an interesting curvy building, but it has gradually morphed into another boxy tower. As for iconic, the two main, and overweight looking, towers are only marginally iconic. They are basically slanted boxes, which isn't exactly exciting or ground breaking architecture to warrant the 'iconic' label in my humble opinion. Take a gander at some truly iconic architecture. This looks almost quaint in comparison to the more outrageous designs going up in other parts of the world. The only supertall that deserves the label of iconic in this boom is the Vanderbilt tower, even though it is a lazy contemporary take on an old classic art-deco skyscraper. The other supertalls are far too reserved in appearance to be considered true icons. Again, my personal opinion only and design is too subjective to get into endless pissing matches over.

P.S, I just noticed you were Banned. What in the heavens for?

He was a previously banned member. Discovered through IP login. He thinks it's a game. Pretty sad really.

They have been digging deep for something on the Phase II side of the avenue. The hole has to be at least 100 feet deep.

Wow, Hudson Yard looks pretty futuristic. I cannot wait till it is finished. When I go to NYC I will have to check it out.
