Because nothing makes all world cities look more alike than blue monoliths.

So tired of the blue glass. Materials science has come a long way since even the early 2000s, and I hope more architects start to experiment with new materials in the coming decade.

One thing that haunts NYC after 9.11 is its fear to break over 300 meters and go to lets say 500 or 600 meters.

NYC is market-driven. It is challenging to building at 600m without losing tons of money.... unless there are others reasons for doing so.

With boring 1000 ft boxes costing 4B around here, yes, megatalls are a tall order.

Though another sensible reason is the preference from companies for larger floor plates. Buildings like Starrett LeHigh and 111 8th Ave pack a lot of usable floor space in few floors. These new towers are similarly designed to maximize usable space.

Indeed, I've always been a fan of the failed New York Stock Exchange Tower from the 80s. Basically a superior version of what we ended up with at 1 WTC. Blegh, I suppose it might be time to finally wash my hands of it and move on.

The Starrett LeHigh building is beautiful....those windows!! A tower has just been proposed in London that is a similar shape to the old NYSE proposal.

It's largely the same in many cities, London, NYC, Dublin etc etc, office buildings are designed and built to offer grade-A space at a competitive price to the market with specifications that are in demand, and the market wants large, column-free and open plan floor plates with big windows and easy shapes, i.e. squares/ trapeziums etc.

When the commercial market wants curvy spindly office towers covered in trees and architectural flare, I imagine the construction market will build them

Of course, but that does not mean the buildings must lack all flair and use the same color windows. Some variety is not going to hurt, although I did see that perhaps the new JP Morgan tower that is proposed may use some bronze color in the design, so that may be a start.

Blue box heaven...

F**k it I'll just say it: so far, Hudson Yards is a bit of a disappointment

I'm not sure what your expectations were if you are disappointed. Did you figure they'd decide to ditch the renders and build a bunch of Singer/Chrysler/Woolworth Building type towers instead? Right now we're being delivered exactly what was promised.

I'm quite satisfied with what Hudson Yards has become. It seemed like just yesterday that I was in New York staring an unfinished 10 Hudson Yards in amazement.

Steel ascends at The Spiral, Bjarke Ingels' 1,032-foot Hudson Yards office tower

By Vitali Ogorodnikov
Today, June 20, 2019

The first phase of Hudson Yards has opened just three months ago, yet another pair of supertalls is already racing to the sky next door. A thicket of steel beams and tower cranes has sprouted at 35 Hudson Yards, aka The Spiral, architect Bjarke Ingels' 66-story office behemoth that will climb to 1,032 feet, higher than the Chrysler Building.

The skyscraper will pack 2.2 million square feet of office space within the 2.6 million-square-foot structure.

To the south, The Spiral faces 50 Hudson Yards, where a concrete core has begun its ascent to the 1,012-foot pinnacle.

The sheer glass curtain wall will match the prevailing theme at Hudson Yards. However, the tower’s namesake feature, which spirals up the facade in setback terraces, is a delightful touch that will make the tower stand out among an ever-densifying skyscraper crowd.

The skyscraper footprint spans the whole block between 10th Avenue, Hudson Boulevard, and West 34th and 35th Streets. This important junction joins 34th Street, the main east-west thoroughfare in Midtown South, and the verdant Hudson Boulevard, the principal north-south anchor of the emerging Far West Side.

Hudson Boulevard provides much-needed open space and pedestrian flow through the otherwise long blocks, animating the streets in a manner lauded by urban theorist Jane Jacobs.

At the moment, The Spiral marks the northern frontier at Hudson Yards. The recently completed plaza, shopping center, and office complex to the south already bustles with foot traffic from dawn till dusk. By contrast, parking lots and car garages still line the blocks to the north. However, in the coming years, Hudson Boulevard will continue its unrelenting northward march, carrying another wave of development and urban vitality. By the time the Spiral tops out about a year from now, we expect to see more projects rising from the adjacent fallow ground.
