There's a plethora of beautiful buildings going up in NYC. There's never been a super tall boom like the current one. You're welcome to your opinion, but, I'm sorry that you hate everything (Complaints in almost every NYC thread). Perhaps you should assemble a site, design the tower, permit that tower, and construct it to see why things are the way they are? Also you should check out the differences in costs in those countries vs the USA.

I almost lost it when he said "Dubai" and "innovative" in the same sentence. The only thing that Dubai is innovative in is flammable architecture.

Yeah always nice when people get offended by criticism so they need to trashtalk other cities. I disagree with JohnDee too but there's no reason to get that immature about it. All cities worldwide currently booming deliver some great towers, there's the occasional weaker design here and there but overall we get tons of great skyscrapers across the planet. So no need for city vs city trashtalk, it's not just that it's against the rules anyway, there isn't even any need for it.

Sensitive emotional reply, obvious triggered.

All lies, you don’t know anything about me. I have been following nyc for a long time and have liked many towers. Way longer than this account is old. Your putting words in my mouth. Deal with my complaints or don’t look. Not my problem. If you can only handle positive smaltz and hate people critiquing nyc, you have a choice to ignore me if your that sensitive.

You have probably never been to Dubai if you talk like this (or Shanghai where the Shanghai Tower reigns supreme). Let's see what you think when you first stand under the Burj, man. You will change your tune, no question about it. Nonsense trash about flammable architecture.

I could care less if anyone criticizes any city. All I'm pointing out is that it gets annoying when you open every thread and it's the same complaint over and over again by the same person. Peace.

Chill. This is exactly what a troll would say, but I don't think that's your angle. If you can't handle disagreement, then don't plaster your opinions everywhere.

Commenting on old news here, but this strikes me as odd. It should be the client who has the power to release or withhold a rendering, not the architect.

A reliable source tells me Foster's office is *not* releasing a rendering of 270 Park's replacement until they're certain that "every last scrap" of Natalie de Blois' 1961 façade "is in the dumpster.".

Well yes, unless Foster insisted on adding such a clause to his contract, which is his right to ask for when making the contract.

With 1 Vanderbilt topped out and the Hudson Yards towers complete, all eyes will be on Midtown East. I hope Jamie Dimon uses the opportunity to reveal Chase's new Midtown East digs.

I assume the crane will go to it's max height and then work it's way down? Definitely not used to that theory.

Looks like 299 Park Avenue is getting a little work done

A friend of mine talked to a worker on site, and he apparently told her they want to have the whole building down by march. That's...optimistic.

That is one THICC tower. I just wish we didn't have to lose the existing 270 Park Avenue to get it.
