I believe that multiple clusters of supertalls will make the skyline even more substantial than ever before.

What I would love to see are skyscrapers between Midtown and Downtown to fill that gap.

no, i think they should keep it how it is, maybe more in Chelsea, and defiantly more around madison square park but i think that the middle should stay how it is, short, but we can still get exciting buildings around there that arnt skyscrapers.


or like one supertall slap bag in the middle that would be awesome.

Exactly. While supertalls are great, human scale neighborhoods are aswell. Skyscrapers could work around Madison Square though and maybe around the streets near Union Square.

o sry i just assumed that it was directed at me....sry...
theres not much of a neighborhood there now, so i guess the development will be recieved with open yards. MY ONE CONCERN- so many different supertall projects in the dense area could either turn out splendid and add a new demension to the skyline of the city as well as office space, or end up as an empty neighborhood full of vacant supertalls...

one thing many people don't understand is how giant supertalls can ruin the scale and proportion of a neighborhood. Many people thought of the World Trade Center as beautiful (im not one of those people...) yet the size was really uncomprehendible- it was just so big. Giant supertalls in chelsea would ruin the quaint feel.

Exact same story in Torontario

This building will fit perfectly on the West Side. These New York's projects will give the city a new modern look! NY is awesome!

Agree on both points. As you said there isn't much of a neighborhood in the area. There a few residential beuildings, warehouses, car repair shops, and studios. But there really is not life there. Now if everything is developed just right, it would be a good extension of the active areas of 34th ST. And new supertalls could really compliment the ESB. But if done wrong, it'd all end up being a huge mistake.

Mmmm yeah... Ish.
I see what you mean but I'd say you're being very kind there.
Replace the word 'subtle' by 'dull' and you'll get a shortly argumented feeling of mine regarding this project.

I'd give a C+. No more.

A nearly supertall beauty for New York. I like the modern and kind of elegant design.

I'm not looking at this building itself. But the whole westside as a whole. With so much growth the westside could give lower manhattan and mid-town a run for it's money. And that great, let it rise, let it rise HAHAHAHA.

This project could only be realized in Asia or the Middle East. There's not a hope in hell it will be developed in New York. America is in a recession.

Yes, yes they do. And it never hurts to have a little green in the city. Really doesn't harm it at all IMO.

Dude, he's got 370, out of which 369 say "America is in a recession".
Don't know what the other one says, although it was probably something like " my country is great...and America is in a recession"...
