There's so many buildings going up it's hard to keep track of them all.

I really do like this tower.

I'm still on the fence with this one, but am waiting till the cladding reaches the skyline to pass any more judgement. I do appreciate its avant-garde-ness though


Great updates today baronson!

This tower has spectacularly textured material! I can't wait to see it completed. Part of NYC's beauty is its skyline of non-glass towers. This building will do a good job of continuing that variety.

Not only is it a unique material and texture... it's a skyscraper without rectangular windows!

Just discovered this. I like it a lot. My only hesitation is that the top arches are inverted. It throws off the lines for me. Otherwise it looks really nice. Can't wait to see it grow.

Bite your tongue. That "fascist building" in Rome you are referring to (the one near the Davinci airport), is magnificent combination of modern and ancient. The arches are copies of the arches at the Coliseum. It is a beautiful and solid combination of the old and new, while fully retaining functionality. Please do not use branding

It is not the ambient height, but the difference between the location of object and the ground below. If the ground is 400 meters below, then the atmospheric turbulence and fast changes can wreck havoc. but it is a mountain 2000 meter high, then life would thrive because the ground is right below it and tempers the atmospheric changes.

Yes it does. I did not expect that with the renders on the first page of this thread in mind.
There it looked a bit cheap with that yellowish colour. This is much better.
