It's not a mater of 'overshadowing it', but the simple fact that it will not be as proeminent from every angle (almost) as it is now; and that's a shame in a way.

depending on the angle, a 3 story building could block the view of ESB ~_~

Just look at that crazy old thing, it even has wooden arms.

What's the record for building a Supertall?

If the Brazilian economy keeps growing and Lula keeps supporting free-market initiatives, it'll just be a matter of time.

I really like this tower but it does in many ways invade the ESB skyline presence.

New York becoming Insignificant?

Anyway not to get off topic but this will be a perfect addition to the New York City skyline.
You are so right! With New York City full of so many small buildings I can see the World Headquarters and General Secretariat of the United Nations, the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange, the World Bank, the New York Mercantile Exchange, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the largest art collection in the world - surpassing the Louvre), the Guggenheim Museum (the architectural masterpiece by Frank Lloyd Wright) the American Museum of Natural History (the largest single museum building in the world), the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln Center of Perporming Arts, the Hayden Planetarium (largest in the world), Saint Patrick's Cathedral, Grand Central Station, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine (the largest Gothic Cathedral in the world), Temple Emanu-El (the largest Synogogue in the world), it's three airports, it's many colleges and universities like Columbia, NYU, Hunter, Fordham, etc;the Federal Reserve Bank (contains more gold than anyplace in the world - including Fort Knox), etc etc etc ..... all packing their bags and picking up to move to Dubai!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course all the trees in Central Park, Riverside Park, Bryant Park will die in the hot desert of Dubai, but who cares??? Dubai has the tallest building in the world and that makes it a world class city!

The first rendering... The building looks like one of those buildings in Singapore's skyline or Dubai's skyline.

Anyway, I'm excited for NYC now!

This tower will be the first to rise on the outskirts of the Hudson Yards. Just another 300 meter tall building.

In fact, I think this is inside the Hudson Center, but not a part of it.

Yea your right ... the GiraSole can be seen in the Vornando Hudson Yard plan because FX&Fowle designed them both. However, as you said the GiraSole will be built no matter what project for the Hudson Yards is chosen.
