Love the last photo. The WTC replacement is making a huge difference. Is there information that lists the number of high rises in midtown and downtown separately?

Agreed, downtown needed a supertall to anchor it. What would be very interesting would be another supertall in a different area of downtown... since we are somewhat "used" to seeing a spike in the skyline at the current WTC location. Another spike elsewhere would be fresh and like never seen before!

It is great to see that this project has come back from the dead. I like the current scheme ten times better than Calatrava's proposal. This tower, if built, will indeed redefine the downtown skyline for the best. There seems to be a boom of hotel and residential highrises in downtown!

It's amazing what a difference one building can make. At 417m it's the perfect exclamation point.
