Something like this would work better as a residential tower.

Quote:
This tower will likely never be developed, but it is an experiment which may prove useful in furthering how we imagine skinny supertalls, and what could rise from a seemingly insignificant plot land. And while rising heights for office towers have been accompanied by increasingly gargantuan floorplates, continual technological progress may eventually yield to the same trends that have already begun to predominate high-end residential skyscraper construction across the Five Boroughs.

Thanks for the info.

So for now, I guess a cigar is still.........

But yeah...definitely resi. And I do enjoy looking at the render with the Big Three well-integrated in there. Very professional.

The reasons why most likely need not be rehashed here.

What a great looking building. Too bad it's highly unlikely to ever be built.

Reminds me a bit structurally of IM Pei's Grand Central concept. Except even more expensive to build haha.

I love the design overall—the facade has such a nice texture to it—but I agree with NYguy. It would realistically only work as a residential tower. I just don’t see office tenants ever wanting to go back to multiple small floorplates when they can just lease one big one.
