Is it an actual bridge or just a IDK what it would be called Like an extension or something like that? It does look good.

Pfft, we're going to get a whole bunch of whiney comments like, "Whaaa, but I wanted XXXX's plan to win! This plan's supertalls suck!"

Be happy we're getting a supertall(s), and know that the plan is bound to change, hopefully getting bigger/taller and better.

I really think Related has by far the best supertall, it's just that buildings aren't as tall as people want/as other plans', therefore most people here will bash it to death and pretend it's the worst thing ever like a bunch of babies. We just have to wait and see where this heads. The only one winning is New York; I'm sure things will turn out for the best.

You people need to quit sucking up to these people. You guys want everybody to say how much they love these buildings. But thats not going to happen, some of us like them other of us hate them. I bet you say I luv this trash pitt, if they put one there lol.

My only changes would be to add a little height to the two tallest commercial buildings and to remove one of the residential buildings that are isolated in the park and move those residences to another residential building on the perimeter that would now be a supertall. Outside of that it is a fine plan to me.

They look fine to me, I was never a huge fan of the Brookfield plan, so this is a little more of the style I was hoping the lot would employ.

I bet if the current plan was the one with the tallest builgings and all of the other plans were smaller with the smallest one winning and people liked it you'd be saying the same stuff. Of course we all want more, but would you rather have a dozen skyscrapers or nothing at all? There will be plenty of other supertalls in the same area and at least the current plan has the best backing with the best chance of going bigger, while the others had poor backing.
Not one person here would be whining if Related were the only team to show up and present their plan. Just pretend the other teams never existed. Besides, there's not much to judge the current plan from. This is all at such an early stage that saying things like, "it sucks" is an unmistakable sign of an idiot.
Just because the last big plot of land is being developed and isn't getting buildings as big as people wanted to see there doesn't mean NY will never get buildings as tall as people who love it want it to get.

You and I know this is suppose to be the mega project that rivals the WTC. This has been stated for months, after this there will be no more mega project in Manhattan. I could careless about the height of these buildings, what I want is a kick ass design. If you going to market it as the next WTC, then make it like the WTC or don't make it at all. And calling someone a idiot because they don't agree with you is a little childish don't you think. But enough with this back and forth, we got what we got and theirs nothing we can do about it. I just want them to get it done and out the way.
