I like the project, but I wish they'd change the buildings up. These all have kind of the same look. Part of what makes NY so amazing is the diversity of the architecture. I like the supertall, but the rest.....ehh..

I like the mid to top portions of all the buildings, but there is a lot of Dubaism in the design of the lower parts of the towers IMO.

Don't despair - it may turn out to be what we both want. Who knows

Am I the only person who doesn't like any of these plans? I don't want to be some sort of stickler of architecture, but they all seem quite ugly and uninspired to me. Everyone seems to be pro-Brookfield, and I am just inquiring, do you guys genuinely like it? or are you just choosing the best out of the lot? Just curiosity, I am not attempting to "rattle" any "sabers," nor attack anyone's taste in architecture. Despite my personal views on the project, however, I can definitely say I am happy for such a project in New York.

Out of what is proposed it is the best in my opinion. As for how much possibly better it can be - is rather infinite since everyone has a different taste. One thing I like about it - it is not a typical NYC box type skyscraper - it is something fresh and new. Also the idea of the 2 parks connected at an angle intrigues me as well. Finally you should understand: first - the place looks very ugly now - so anything that can be built here is a plus; second NYC has virtually ran out of space to build anything so this large complex development is unique. I expect that sometime in the near future - skyscrapers will be built in Brooklyn rather than in Manhattan. due to lack of space.

Fair enough, thanks for responding.

I, too, would like more diversity. I don't like highrise superblock developments as much as it is b/c of the fact that the buildings often look way to similar. The Brookfield on is great, I like it a lot, but it's better if there could be more diversity in materials and colors. I think the shapes are great and diverse, but even if they're shaped way different, if they're the same color and look similar in that regard, the project will be underwhelming. But I'm holding out for more renderings, hopefully these issues are addressed. All of the sketches have this effect, so maybe it's just like that for the early renders, or maybe that was criticism that was already brought up.

I agree. There is extreme wasted urban space on the ground with this project on the parts of most of the design teams. Taken straight out of "futuristic" yet very poorly planned 1960s/70s design. There will be little use of the park space at the ground level here with what looks like little to no reason to use it. Retail space seems to be broken up, which is why many places fail to develop consistent foot traffic in the first place. Hopefully a lot of the fanciful designs at the ground level will be redesigned with intelligence.

The winding sidewalks design remind me vaguely of the way Independence Mall in Philly is cut up into useless portions. It's no wonder why even that park is not used to its potential.
