I agree, ZZ. The massing on the first rendering was cartoonish.

This is a very small plot of land, so a 900 footer will look good.

The new design doesn't exactly scream New York. I think it would look ugly in any city in my opinion.

Considering it's around 275m and quite thin, it's fairly nice.

It really dwarfs the 545 foot imaginary structure next to it!

Roughly 852 ft (816 + 36) in that render is a nice height indeed.
