^^^ No way this is getting build, Perhaps somewhere in 10-20 years? and C'mon the design is way to simple.

That picture is just one of the Ken Gardner twin tower models circa Trump endorsement with an elongated spire.

^^^ Exactly, hence my :lmao: Let’s close up this thread; since when is Wikipedia a valid source anyway?

Ha...NO.

Agreed, trash this thread. Though I suppose it serves it's purpose for the :jester:

This section is for any and all projects, including mountains and that eye sore in the sky thing.

Was wondering why I hadn't heard of this one, but that's because it was just announced.

1. never heard of the firm
2.wrong time to propose
3. what idiot would contract a building like this, better off building X-SEED 4000.
4.Its a box,a featureless box, i bet minoru yamasaki (original wtc architect) would be disapointed in this.

It’s a fraudulent design which is a carbon copy of another whack proposal. The firm doesn’t exist, the contractor is not in place and the financing is most certainly not feasible. The land for this in BPC also doesn’t exist. Plus, that description looks to be the work of an average Joe sporting some fantasy. The proposal is a fraud.

And the name…..come on.

Of course it is. The wikipedia article changed overnight.

Not the first time, nor most elaborate fake though. Anyone remember those two ~2400 ft buildings "proposed" for Kansas City, MO?

Dac150 Dec 21, 2009 2:54 AM

Never heard of that one, but the whole ‘Central Park Airport’ proposal always made me laugh. Amazing what some will come up with.

It is also worth noting that the spire was extended using MSPaint.
