Seems like you don't even know what you are talking about!..Are you just...BORED!?
Significant extra height (1240' vs 1080'), spires and cross bracing along with more unique cladding, a giant lobby tv screen, basically everything about it. Lets just be glad it's actually being built and with mostly the same form as initially conceived.

Hahaha. House M.D was a wonderful show!

While the building is a box and the design was scaled back a lot. I think it came out decent and It compliments tower 4 really well.

I couldn't help but notice during my visit to the site, the disappointment of seeing the steel bracing end before the parapet. The spires will be missed!

"It compliments tower 4 really well"...you are RIGHT!!...just because they reduced the height and scrapped these four ridiculous tiny flag poles!
THE GOAL WAS TO REDESIGN AND MELT A VANITY STARCHITECT PROJECT INTO A CLUSTER:GREAT JOB!!

It's bullshit. The truth The design has not been changed by a better one has been shifted by a cheaper one. The rest of what you say is blah, blah, blah

You may be right that the needles are ridiculous... but the truth is that the set with the needles made the building more... slim, different and imposing... And the steel lines on the sides? ... come on! The little steel lining is just to remember what it would have been like and it was not finally. Because the little coating does not make any sense ...

What is happening in Hudson Yards seems to me much more interesting...

That bracing complements the building beautifully. Hopefully 2 WTC can find anchor tenant sooner rather than later.

Still disappointed by this masterplan and the horrible Boring Tower but this one has turned out amazing!
