I like it, it's sleek and adds density and height.

Unless it's majorly ugly, I'm never against a tower being built

Thank you!

That is against forum policy. Everyone can post here - this isn't a fansite but a DISCUSSION BOARD. That is also what keeps the threads lively (unless people start swearing).

You are taking a quote out of context and without reading the thread.

What I was suggesting is that if the member was not satisfied with the building, then it makes no logical sense to post nonsense on the thread.

For example, if I am not interested in the skyscrapers in a certain city, I will not bother reading those threads - it's that simple.

If you were somehow offended, I sincerely apologize.

Ditto. For sure everyone can give his opinion, even if it is a critice.

Every tower has pro's and cons (for me this one has more pro's than cons), and everyone has a different opinion. A blind wall on a tower sure isn't nonsense, it's a point of criticism that has a rightful place in this topic where all kinds of ideas, opinions and visions come together. No need to scare away people who dislike skyscrapers in a certain city at all. Especially when it's New York, cos in this city there's a tower for everyone at least.

I don't know.

For me, I love all skyscrapers.

From the residential towers that harbor the neighborhoods in Manhattan to the office towers with gleaming beauty, I have yet to find a skyscraper I do not like.

Maybe that was the purpose of the design, to sell ads.

Why would it be the purpose of the design since car traffic goes uptown and therefore provides very little visibility of the blank wall.

Hey, it was just a thought.

Perhaps it was advertisement for the pedestrian.

Nope, was an off-topic

The design is not bad, but nothing special. Just one tower more, imho.

I don't know why certain individuals believe that everyone plays with toys, but some of us honestly do not.
