Wait a second, that isn't the MetLife North building on which this should be built. Oooops, I talked about the wrong building, sorry. I thought this was about to be built on the MetLife North building

Btw, I think it is a crime to leave the MetLife building as it is now. It should be finished. Hopefuly it will since, as I posted in the 1WTC thread, demand for A class office space is apparently on the rise

Here's my quick edit to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.
As for the comparison that made the original tower and that is lower, I mean the renders, I think the best is the original.

I do not see why removing skyscraper heights in the city, more precisely in the Big Apple.

This tower would be an icon as are other icons of the city.

I 1000% agree with you. The taller this building is, the better

Agreed on the wrong location. On the side note - they really should restore the old metlife to its former glory, before it was stripped and the lower portion reclad.

There hasn't much news on this project since the end of 2008.

The modifications that kalt posted show a short and tall version, there never was a short version, the last we heard Elad Properties was going to do the bigger version, north of 900 feet. Here's a link to some high quality renders, definitely worth checking out.

However, from an article that is literally from 2008, Elad Properties said that the images of this tower that we're all familiar with, "were made at least a year ago" so in 2007 "for publication purposes, and no longer reflect the current state of the project."

No renders of the new state of the project have been released. If there's news here it will be posted.
