This is going to be a great modern building! Also that is NYC, buildings get blocked all the time. Is part of its history. You don't like it too bad.

I agree that it is just the way it goes, but I think the renders look like shit. I hope the finished product changes my opinion.

This will be a great addition to the Financial District's skyline. This tower is much needed due to the population boom that is taking place in Manhattan and especially in its CD1. Between 2000 and 2007 CD1's population grew by 46%, although there was a big dip after 9-11. The financial district and the surrounding neighborhoods have been the fastest growing part of NYC since the 1970's.
Manhattan Community District 1 is composed of the Financial District, Battery Park City, Civic Center, Tribeca, Governor's Island and Ellis Island.


1970: 7,706
1980: 15,918
1990: 25,366
2000: 34,420
2007: 50,413(estimate)
2010: 57,000(projection)

The fourth pic is beautiful. This will be one elegant skyscraper. With the Spire and the Trump Tower and now this, Chicago will give the developers in NYC a run for their money!

Ermm, yeah, other cities all over sure are building gothic style masterpieces like madness. NY should build some too. But then again, maybe not because they are so commonplace and easy to build.

I was talking about the woolworth building. I've never seen another building like it aside from maybe 490 riverside. Not the same design, or the same idea, but they both look good.

Woolworth:


490 riverside:




I think it would be cool if they made a glass and stone gothic style supertall.

New York would look BORING if every single building looked like that.

How ironic that you are calling the Beekman tower "boring"
