No, 125 Greenwhich will be much shorter than that according to the dimensions of the on site rendering.

I have a hunch as to why this tower is so terrible. Fox News hates liberals, us liberals love cities and multi-culturalism. Conservatives think cities are terrible places filled with crime and those icky non white people, so they have designed this tower to ruin the lower Manhattan skyline forever.

On second thought, I think that the design below would be the best possible compromise. The main chunk (top two boxes) of the tower forms a square that runs all the way down (homage to the twins):

I hope 125 greenwich will not be the next big mess here.

This will never pay homage to the twins. The Twins epitomized New York. This tower epitomizes Chongqing.

At this point they should just build a twin for 1wtc & be done with it. It wouldn't be the Twin Towers nothing can replace them, but I sure like 1wtc a lot better than this childish set of bland blocks by Ingels.

That tower would look horrible in Chongqing, would look horrible in any city...

Well... Maybe in Macao... would complement well Grand Lisboa.

I guess it is if you prefer jumbled incoherent messes.

That's the thing. The boxes will be cold and windy for much of the year. I'd be surprised if they manage to keep the trees alive, or if they even put trees up there in the first place.

It looks fine from the east, west, and south, but the north side looks fat due to the cantilevers outlining each box. If they added something to stress verticality on the north side it would help a lot. Right now all I can see is an ugly stack of boxes.

I have a question.
Can the design change for something better?
If no i prefer they build nothing rather this mess of box without style.
It too ugly for the city.

Is this something, guys, that could be made acceptable by some alterations like meh_cd suggested or completely not going to work for you unless scrapped, no ifs, ands, buts and cantilevers, lol?
