Nice tower. Just a few m short of being a supertall.

Whatever the national or even international recession is, the real estate market in NYC is still in the stratosphere. There are actually more projects now than ever before. None on hold that I know of. And after the fallout of Bear Stearns, that's pretty amazing. The financial markets the way they are, still make for a dark cloud on that horizon, though. Many lay-offs have occured already... more certainly forthcoming. That will likely take some steam out of the real estate market, eventually.

it's a cheap copy-paste of the Hearst Tower.

Agreed. Copy? Maybe...

Cheap? Now you're out of your mind...

As for me, I think it's okay. It'd look better without the flat top and with more setbacks.

Um i dont think every thing will be built. That would cause craziness. With the empire state building, girasole at 1000 ft and this one with the built up hudson yards it would be chaos. Manhattan will be so crowded.

be happy every american the dollar is rising again but not at a fast rate

I find it complimentary when architects design buildings that look similar, yet different.

Also, most towers all look the same - simple boxes with very little thought put into the design itself.

This building is not a residential it is office. From my understanding the new west side will be mostly office buildings. The speculation in the article you provided has to do with residential towers not office space ( which is always needed) now apparently more than ever.
So when you say you don't think it will all get built you may be partially right but make no mistakes.... the west side is the last area where these things can really get built. I think there will be amazing projects that we will not get to see built and that there will be projects that will. There will be awful buildings that thankfully won't go up and awful buildings we will have to deal with. There will be major development and we have just begun to "clear our throats". NY may slow down sometime in the future but it will never disappear.. check our track record.

but you missed my point, when i posted the link i was talking about how the dollar is beginning to rise in value, the website is just to give an example of how the dollar will grow. And it is unlikely they will have that many buildings so close to each other at almost 1000ft thats why they still have not chosen a design yet

What's crazy about having a bunch of 1000 foot buildings clos to each other? Isn't that what the WTC is going to be? 3 buildings over 1000 ft and on just short of it?

This will create a very interesting skyline.

On one hand, with Chicago, you have a few 1,000 footers spread out, where in NYC, you will have several 1,000 footers (spread out over the entire skyline), yet have clusters (Downtown and Midtown).

o yea i have no problem with that, in fact, i like the dense look. It's just that hudson yards has had so many financial problems that im skeptical it will be built in the next few years...

Oh, I can certainly understand your concern and in a way, I share your concerns as well.

However, I believe in hope, because that's all we have.

While the renders may not always come out as planned, the vision is the spirit that makes this hobby interesting.

I was actually referring to what someone else said. But yeah I do have those same concerns.
