Someone who has seen the renderings informs me that this will be a really beautiful building with a nice crown.

Really? I am so excited! I love 'nice' crowns. Ask him when we are expected to see the renderings.

Does your source know who's the Architect?

Hey Duke of Wellington... is your source willing to reveal who the architect is?
If it's a beautiful crown and spire... it's certainly not SOM-NYC. Maybe Frank Williams or Stern....

I didn't ask who the architect is but was told it resembles the Siena on Third Ave.

Hmmm...I need to see more. Also, is the elevation higher or lower than the Woolworth/Barclay towers?

Thats one sexy cluster Two talls, one medium, all fitting in nicely. This new tower will totally ruin it, ugh. I agree with Scruffy, the existing building should be used as the base, that would be kool.

That trick worked for the Hearst tower, we got lucky with that one. Let's not push our luck.

Besides, I don't see a residential tower rising out of this:

^ That is going to look awesome. It is sort of a modern Art Deco Style. I need to see better done renderings of this tower.

They removed the horrible green colour of the glass, which is a positive change, but modified the base into a mediocre box--bad!

The crown looks very interesting, it looks like it might compliment the Woolworth nicely.

It's a little to far away to compliment the Woolworth building. I'd say more 20 exchange place, 40 Wall, or American International.

Original base is much nicer. On the whole, great looking building.

I thought this was going to be a much more mediocre tower, but this design is awesome - a worthy tower to share space with Woolworth. Build it as soon as possible.

Excellent find.

The older base looks better, but it's the crown that makes this one special.

That's Woolworth here in the background...
