i love this building and it will be a huge disappointment if it doesnt' get built. NY needs a new building to "awe" about.

The first freedom tower was trash. But Libeskind owes me nothing because he was replace. He owes himself to get something done. And it likely he'll get replace for this too. The render looks alright but what if the building looks bad in real life. It will be hard to hide at 900 feet.

That is such a good point!! Can't believe it didn't strike me before...
I still adore it though.

Well that looks nice. But not for New York. From some angles maybe, but from others it just wouldn't work for me

Those towers remain the best proposals yet for Paris, IMO at least. New York would be lucky to have them, any city would. I'm chuffed London is getting it's own version by SOM.

Not bad, but I'm not convinced if it fits there. And I just don't like this fashion of placing trees inside of buildings.
But well, interesting scraper, although I admit that thing that I love NY for is Art Deco...

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. Crossharbour/Baltimore Wharf:



Not exactly the same obviously, but a similar kind of idea. Though a different technique is used to give a similar effect.


Sorry for derailing the thread. I really like the New York building, if it's still going ahead.
