I liked that one. Hopefully, the design will be something that stands out from the mass that is Midtown Manhattan.

Mr. Nouvel hinted at something novel: "I'm for a specific architecture, and I'm opposed to a global or generic architecture, especially for skyscrapers.

Could be very interesting....
