The model looks quite good, but the renders look weird. But definitely good for NY!

Okay, I'm officially tired of the twist. Talk about a lack of creativity.

Gorgeous. This will look better in person and will look good in the skyline mixed in with the other towers. It's different, but not ridiculous, I think it's great and love the twist. It fits NYC fine, NYC is not all boxes, and this is still on the classy side. I'm glad that it's not all bluish glass from top to bottom.

Wow a new take on twisting towers just in time to keep the whole idea from becoming stale. It's a very interesting design and from the renders and models the twist will make it appear to really extend/loom over the street which would be a very cool effect imo. One I'm definitely hoping will go from Pro to U/C very very soon!

Shape needs to get used on.

I've got to agree, the twist is starting to get dated. Plus take a close look at the model, if you'll notice the building corners are vertical, which means that the "twist" occurs inside the footprint of the tower, (if you looked down on it from the top) Now take a look at the computer generated images, and the sides of the tower seem to overhang the footprint by a large margin, an obvious exaggeration of what this tower will actually look like, IMO the twist should begin closer to (or at) the base of the tower, and be much more gradual to the top.

Don't get me wrong, i like the idea of another 1000'+ tower for NYC, but would like to see better architecture, and planning in this case

I don't think twisting architecture is dated. How many twisting towers does NYC have? If it doesn't have any than it'll be a good addition to the skyline b/c it's still classy. Hell, I'd like to see some nice art-deco buildings go up in certain places nowadays too.
