New Tower1 base- Consists of (20) floors /6 levels.
The lobby is about 70 feet tall, then you have 6 levels of Mechanical and storage floors areas.Total height of the Base is 187.6 feet tall.

Being founded by the Dutch has nothing to do with anything - Dutch is not commonly spoken in NY. Spanish is, second only to english.
Don't discount the influence of the Dutch on the entire NY/NJ area. Hoboken, Bleecker, Weehawen, Stuyvesant, and Bowery are all Dutch names.

Yes I understand your point, but most photo's are not taken from exactly one corner, so at most photo's it doesn't appear to taper much. But I agree with you!

digo simple porque había otros proyectos no? pero igual esta muy bueno y es enorme y complejo. en fin esta genial. amazing proyect
