Catching up? New York has far more skyscrapers built (203) than any other city in the world.

I think it has way more than that. Who cares about the numbers anyway? NY has catching up to do to noone except itslef and perhaps... Chicago (an inner US pride thing that is).
NY ain't competing with Dubai, Beijing or any other of those semi-eye-candy empty-ish artificial places. NY is vibrant, lively, and yep indeed needs a bit more innovative design with its future tall buildings but that's it. NY will stay on top for a looooooong time! And rightly so.

There will be solar panels and wind turbines in the spire, like the old Freedom Tower. NY is leading in green skyscrapers recently.

I don't think the NYC, or the US in general, is leading in green anything.

I know! I shouldn't have said anything positive about something about the US because I could never be right!
A perfect dee dee dee comment. All of NY newest and largest skyscrapers are going to be green; in fact, the people who designed BoA want it to be the greenest ever built in the world. It's something that's really catching on. First it was 4 Times Square, then a few years later 7WTC and Hearst, and now its almost every prominent skyscraper planned and u/c in the city.

and the one in Dubai is goign to be the same, since this one is supposed to be even greener. As for the height, really doesn't matter since this skyscraper beats any building made in Dubai for its style (even though the lighthouse has a design better than most of the buildings in Dubai)

As for the building, it could become easily my favorite skyscraper in the world, unique in its "dark" style, elegance and beauty.
Perfect

I think I need to see more renders from different angles because I'm not really feeling it with this one.
