Those mech floor vents that are different sizes are awful. They totally break up the clean vertical lines of the building. It wouldn't be as bad if they were the same size all the way across.

They may not be sightly, but I think they add some much needed variation to the facade. We already have full uninterrupted glass in 4WTC and 1 WTC.

Someone posted a render of the finished buildings, with the future skyline of NYC. A dome would just make a good addition, and it can be made of some futuristic glass pattern rather than be completely white. Like this

So the NYC's skyline is not versitale enough because it's missing a 10 storey tall lame glass sphere? I don't think so.

The dome is cool but I still don't get why NYC is supposed need a dome, as if the skyline wasn't diverse enough, it has even a f*cking 140m tall pyramid.
Anyways there's already a dome in NYC :

The city already has an iconic sphere. The Unisphere, just the world's largest global structure.

I always loved that structure, it was unveiled in 1964, quite impressive.

That's true. Anyway, will the fins be lit up? In the renderings, it appears the two mechanical floors on the top are lit, but not the fins.

It's not just a lame glass sphere, it's also a vertical farm

It actually adds depth in the skyline. Cool effect.
