Oh wow! I love this. I really like the boxy design here. I think those renders won't do justice. This will turn out great!

its looks superb, not every building has to be a skyline centrepiece, these buildings have character and interest, not everyone wants a rainbow unicorn with a neon dinosaur rider... despite what reading this forum would often lead you to believe.

This design, is bold, individual and conscious of it's surroundings, it will not look out of place or dated in 30 years.

I agree, too 1960's retro for me. However, the other proposals were for a boring glass monolith, so nothing innovative was ever to be expected here once these developers won the rights. These are very conservative developers from a design standpoint. This whole complex was always about the plazas, retail, rather than spectacular trophy towers. Much of the view of these absurd monstrosities will be blocked from the west eventually when the next phases are complete, praise be to God.

So do we know anything about heights/floor counts for these things?

I remember a couple of years ago, the tallest one was 1300 ft/110 Floors. Will it be anything close to this?

I thought this project was dead now it was well still is my favorite project other than Tower Vere and the New WTC. It's guess it's good that it's still going strong even though it wont be done for a while.

I honestly don't see how people can cream over the extremely similar -- but stubbier -- tower in London and hate this.

I agree. Hopefully we will get the same spectacular and rapid construction pace here with huge steel beams.

The design is completely on the boring side if you ask me, but if the materials are good it could end up being unoffensive.

Lol I'm feeling the same way right about now. Ugly designs like this is what get project in NYC killed. I'm look around to see what group I can join, to make sure this shit doesn't see the light of day.

It will look good.

And is true, not every building has to be a skyline centrepiece, considering that 15 Penn Plaza and ESB are near.
