Most of the excavation of the southern wall is done, and the curvy bits are looking nice (click the pic for a better view):

Well, I guess we know what that curvy thing is now:

Although the prior version was better, this will still be an awesome 750' tower that other cities would eagerly welcome!

I can't wait to see what Worldwide plans for the Bloomingdales site.

It looks great, but it would be greater if it was a square. It looks like it belongs in Atlantic City on the fat side. But maybe it would be too skinny if it was square? Maybe we can design 22 Thames Street as a taller, square version of this.

Nice. I'm happy it isn't square. There are quite enough box designs in NY, allthough some look very good.

Since NY is so huge, it has way more non- boxy towers than any other city. Non-boxy towers are a relatively new thing.

Although the original design was amazing, this is really nice too! I can't wait to see what the developer does at its site near Bloomingdales. I'm pretty sure it will be a supertall.

Haven't checked this thread in a while, didn't know there was a new design released. It's stunning, I want it built, topped out and complete right now!

It definitely bodes well for the Bloomingdales site.

I much prefer this new design tbh

Don't get me wrong, the other design was amazing, but it just looked a bit off, this one is just classy

I agree but I still wish it had something more than a flat top.

Indeed, they should've carried on the indentations upwards to create sort of a flared crown separated into 4 bits

Something like this, but a lot less crappy!

Well, I love it. I particularly love how the balconies flow out of the indentations.
