That second photo really illustrates the impact these towers will have on the skyline!

Good job, Krull!

They're much better than the renderings! They are a bit more rounded-off or bowed out than the render, which is more square. Looks great on the river.

Those twin towers really have a positive impact on the skyline.

Midtown is really developing well.

Now let's hope that the #7 extension moves forward - we really need this to compliment further development.

Didn't know they would ever block out the NYTT from that angle.
