Even a 'small cluster' of towers averaging 300/400 meters in Midtown certainly will take away some of its presence and impact to ESB.
Perfectly said

Glad to see I'm not the only one to think and apprehend that.

Alot of politics are involved in these projects and especially the West Side is a touchy subject so things will be moving slow for this, I wouldn't expect a render just yet.

Even during the public review process when some of the design is unveiled, it's basically going to focus on the placement of the towers and the actual overall plan, not exactly the specific design of the towers.

This project excites me as much as what's going on downtown with the World Trade Center redevelopment. It's really hard to imagine both these developments going on at the same time. What an amazing time for NYC. It's like what's going on in Dubai but instead of being in the middle of the desert, it's happening in the middle of what is arguably, already the world's best skyline (Hong Kong may argue that point). But one of the top 2 non-the-less.

I'm French and I'm enjoy to know that NY will have "maybe" two news twins-towers


A good project for NY and it's world visibility.

Potential layout as shown by the Regional Planning Association...

This is how the plan COULD look:
