The building is nice, but the top is horrendous.

Isn't that the Nakheel Tower proposal? Looks incredible. I actually like the top a lot.

But the spikes are in a very nicely uniformed manner and I don't have anything against open air crowns, I only have something against counting them to the height of a building

Some giant's set up tight wires?

Also, a McDonalds sign that big and high up just seems Orwellian to me.

Using a ***** with blades and spikes on the tip, is a bit too kinky for me.
Perhaps you are into that good old female circumcision?

Looks incredible. I hope one day something like this will be built, though by that time I'll be long dead

It looks like dystopian scaffolding.

idk how I feel about the project
its a pretty good idea with also the connections between the towers
which would offer an amazing view ,but also it just doesn't look right in such a city

No need for 4 towers that tall to go up. A gradual inclination in height is ideal. I must say I really don't like them.

Way too many people are obsessed with height here. Height should be the last priority of a building, with the top being the architecture. Otherwise you end up with pencils or buildings with no regard to their surroundings or skyline. Imagine if those poles in the top pictures would be built? Horrific.
The only reason I can accept 432 Park avenue is because a taller,wider building will be built on the other side of the island to counter its presence. Otherwise, it is way too thin and pencil-like and damages the unity of the skyline.
If it was wider,(and had rectangular windows instead of square) it would have been near perfect.

Wow, that looks like something out of Blade Runner. Hideous, cold, and dystopian.

Just an off topic question, but I've noticed a lot on these boards that people use words surrounded by colons, such as and . What does that mean?
