The last rendering shows 1 or 2 new (meaning unheard/unseen) supertalls in the lower Manhattan skyline, and it seems WTC Tower 3 is taller than WTC Tower 2, but the WTC seems out of scale (too small, somehow).

WOW ! This tower looks incredible at night!

Although Calavatra's design is better, this one fits NY's skyline.

It's a nice exterior, but just a decorated box really, but I do like it a lot

Is that new building a replacement for 80 South Street, or a separate proposal for a different location?

It's an amazing proposal. But I think that if you want to discuss it, you should open another thread, as this one is dedicated to 80 South Street. Thanks.

It looks horrible IMO.They shouldn't allow tall buildings to be built there.Something like the extension to Guggenheim Museum proposed a few years ago would fit better.

That's pretty awful. That pattern doesn't fit at all. Beehive crossed with a cereal box.
