The only skyscraper on the entire European Continent (which does not have that many scrapers) that I think is a beautiful building, is the Shard London Bridge.
The Shard is hard to match, but we have a lot of other designs in the pipeline that are pretty stunning. You won't find any boring boxes in the middle of London, even if 50 more scrapers spring up.

I dont really care for the design. Just looks like it will be so dated 10 or 15 years down the road. I usually like more classic buildings but it might grow on me they usually do when they start going up.

This is badddd.

Terrible design and this doesn't belong in NY, not even USA.

It looks like a desperate Dubai tower!

WTC was considered weird as well in the 60's-70's, but there was noone to bitch about it on the internet back then

I think NYC need some fresh breese in its skyline so i think this one is the best what downtown can happen. Imagine this one the 50 west street beekam place and all the other towers in downtown built it will look totaly new and more interestijng.

99 Church Street too, over 70 floors is possible. The only problem with 80 South Street is that there's no one who wants to pay to live in it - yet. Maybe the Crown Prince of Dubai or Gates would like the highest floor?

Yeah, there are renderings and I think that there was once a thread, but it went missing. Maybe it's in the back of the high-rise section. That tower will be almost on par with the Chrysler Building if they can do it well. Should be anywhere from 700-900' tall, but ya never know.

This is the only picture I have of it; it includes all the new towers of Lower Manhattan (650’ and over) with 80 South Street too:
