I need to see the nighttime lighting complete before judging.

renderings show the top two floors below the parapet lit like the mech levels on 1 WTC. I hope instead of that they install the same LEDs they put on 4 WTC to the top of the parapet. They also have LED floodlights on the side bracing. I think that will look amazing once the construction lighting is gone. But that will probably be years from now at this rate.

WTC 2 actually doesn┤t look that bad in this render, but it has awful proportions and setbacks that suck BIG time.

It's the angle, when you look at it from the other side it looks horrific.

That describes the Wilshire Grand. Great from an angle, yet utterly heinous from all others.

I really hate that the spires are a dream now, but it does well to solidify the skyline, which has suffered the wound of that infamous gap for far too long.

It looks horrible. I'd rather have nothing go up than that POS.

Besides, from that angle it looks like it "leans left."

Browsing through the last page of this thread makes me really admire how the new LM skyline looks very well considered, how the proportions of the buildings added after 911 play well with the rest of the LM fabric and how organically grown it all appears like.

I also admire the fresh, minimalistic and futuristic look of the new WTC. With 56 Leonard and NY by Gehry we have two very courageous approaches to skyscraper design. 45 Broad will add a neo art deco style to the skyline, and everything done and planned at the cherry street in two bridges will visually stretch the skyline around the east river.

The 200m+ building at Maiden Lane along the towers done around Fulton Street will finally change the east river view of downtown. It was basically stuck since the building spree around water street during the Rockefeller planned modernization of lower Manhattan along the construction of the old WTC.

I wouldn┤t mind a mini Battery Park City along the east river to give this side of the skyline a fresh and new look, and redeveloping or recladding the mundane towers around Water Street. And MAYBE a building that goes above 2000 feet.
