Even in renders, that brown sloped building manages to screw up the picture!

That will be replaced by a 350-450m landmark within the next 20 years.

It might be reclad. That site has around 1.5m sf in unused air rights. A tower the size of the HY North tower could (and will) rise there.

Hate to sound like a broken record, but that new render is amazing. Looks so real and lifelike. I'm contemplating putting it as my laptop background.

Agreed, great render, but I thought that the latest render from Related did not have that observation deck on tower 1.

If you are talking about the render of the first page of the latest brochure (the only one updated in that brochure) The observation deck is not shown because it is taken from the opposite corner, so it is obscured by the building itself.

I also think the obvs deck looks a little exaggerated in the renders but all in all, quite spectacular!

That's exactly what I don't like that much about the towers. They look fat from some angles. Especially the South Tower.

I came across this old rendering. This project went from garbage to spectacular.



What a transformation!

Well, those earlier renderings rather looked like massing models than like actual renderings, anyway.

That's what they actually planned to build. Ross claims that he rejected KPF"s design, but based upon the recent NYT article re: Coach's input into the design, I believe that it was the catalyst which precipitated the stunning new design. In fact. Jay Cross of Related also may have alluded to this in the recently posted video.

Iirc preparations will begin this year. So the coming weeks. After that they can start with the foundations ( which are very complicated I believe ), I don't know exactly when that is.

No need to apologize, I think that is the general consensus on this thread.

That's why I love it every time I see a proposed super tall in New York, they always look so good!
