I can understand the sentiment behind the preserving certain views and such. But i also donīt get why a city like NYC should remain itīs established looks and skyline and not reinvent itself and establish a new skyline and look. I myself have very mixed feelings about a supertall this close to the ESB, but I had the same with 432 P Av. and now I find it one of the greatest designs ever. Also one thing that 432 already does is, it makes the skyline exciting again, it creates a peak, a new dynamic, soaring is the right word. All the other supertalls will only enhance that and make the city very very dramatic in a very good way soon. And now that the first supertall outside of Manhattan is UC, we might be suprised by what else will come in the next boom cycle.

EDIT: What I like the most about those new biggies in Manhattan is. They are build inside of a very dense city fabric and are part of a city. So you have 400m+ towers in the middle of a city centre unlike towers built on isolated huge plots of land, with more or less nothing around them, in a cold new CBD.

Nomad's first supertall skyscraper is officially moving forward

The DOB gave the project, designed by Russian firm Meganom, the green light

That's going to be a crazy awesome view of the ESB at night for those upper floors.

That tower looks suspiciously like a bottle opener.

There are quite a few going up. Enjoy it white you can.. the foreign buyers won't always be rushing to NYC as a place to park their investment capital. Remember, these towers are mostly aimed at rich foreign buyers from Russia and China, not at your average wealthy NY'er.

And all of them but especially for this one it looks like a strong hurricane could be a dangerous thing.

I would imagine it will be designed to withstand incredibly strong winds with a huge amount of engineering (Citigroup Center engineering problems in 1978 is a good example of when things get overlooked)

Godzilla however could flick it over like a match stick
