Hey, don't let it bother you. It takes an adult mind to truly appreciate many of the towers along central park. Buildings in Dubai and China catch the eye of children, igniting awe and excitement the way Chuck E. Cheese's or Toys "R" Us might.

This combination of art deco buildings opposite the central park, is surely one of the best and most beautiful views of New York, especially in winter when we see snow in this location. Wonderful.

New York is this, a mixture of art deco buildings, boxy 70's, with black and green glasses of the 90s, and the latest we know today.

But, each with their opinion.
Just say the same thing.

I normally keep negative comments to myself but it is important to remember that everyone has a right to their opinion. Design is subjective after all. If I do feel the need at least I give, what I hope is an intelligent and rational explanation as to why.
Anyway, I really look forward to seeing this one rise up amongst what I believe, is one of the most beautiful mix of architectural styles found anywhere in the world.

Hey guys, if Vormek doesn't like the buildings it's ok, it's just his taste and opinion about it. I mean, i really like New York City, and it's the greatest city ever built (imo) and my visit has just affirmed my thinking about this city. But hey, i'd never anticipate that everyone likes it, it's good that people have different tastes, otherwise we would life in a boring world.I think we are all mature enough, to be able to handle negative comments about things we like. AND this is a forum, where mindsharing, discussions and arguings are welcome, so we shouldn't forbid anyones opinion in first instance.

On the other hand, pictures doesn't do NYC justice, on some pictures the buildings really appeal to be "ugly" while they are amazing in real.

It just frustrates me everytime, that anyone who has another opinion about a project than the majority has, is been called a "troll" or even get bashed here.

my 2 cents...

Are the renderings accurate? Because construction here is well underway yet it seems like the floor area is a lot less spacious in progress photos than the 3d ones

Then again it is hard to envision a finished product when only a small segment has been built. I guess I'll just have to wait and see how it shapes up during future progress

This balloon you see up there, according to Dan, marketing company using to take pics from different heights, heights of floors, so potential tenants can see views from their floors..The camera is attached to the balloon..Very smart and creative move if you ask me..

Thanks for your updates again, Dino. That is indeed very interesting how they take pictures and show the potential tenants their "would be" views!

Dino, thanks for posting the pictures.

I am not sure that the company will have any results from this soon. When I got there, around 11 am, they were wrapping up and the security guard told me that they had to stop because the wind was creating big problems and not letting them get the pictures they wanted.

Sooooooooo, maybe they'll be back another day.

If you go to their web site you get some sense of some of the ingenious things that they do.

BTW, we have some interesting lurkers here. When I was watching them they noticed me and one of their workers finally came over to ask who I was - he asked if I was from the media. I told him no, that I am just a regular person and take pictures that get posted on Skyscrapercity.com. He then got all excited and said he was a huge fan of this site!!.
