I slightly preferred the last iteration, but this is still an amazing tower, and I'm delighted to see that it now has finance.

From those angles it reminds me of 2WTC. Both of these towers will be absolutely stunning

Verre and Steinway will be stunning additions to Midtown.

I'm sure all of us wish it was getting built at its original height, but honestly I'll take this stunning design over some of the much taller yet either boring or "trying too hard to stand out" towers that I see popping up all over the world. This is as close to a perfect tower for NYC is it gets. Just stunning!!

Is the black and white photo the tower we are getting, only horizontal lines and no vertical?

No that's a structural model only, no glass. Looks to be the original design too.

Some towers only look good in sunny wether, but I think this will look good in both sunny and dark bad wether, it is made for the darkness.

Steinway & Verre will be the heir apparent to the Chrysler and Empire State Building as the next generation of icons in the NYC skyline.

Indeed, it is lovely, but what is the schedule for this? Is it going to start soon? A great render is only that until it is built, and this building has been in the works for years now.
