Will the winner of the yards cause other builders who have interests on the perimeter to potentially compete to have their building stand out?

ie the Girasole?

Don't know, but I do know that Brookfield's tallest stands just below the site of the
largest of the Hudson Yards towers. Vornado's is just a block below that.

Shown here, the Girasole is the only one of the "four corners" towers added
to the model. The other 3 are identical place holders.

That's just site prep, no construction has started.

Couple of pics of the model taken yesterday. Given that Vornado's tallest is about 1,200 ft,
the Girasole must be in the 1,100 ft range.

If you think that's stupid, just do a search in the diagrams.

The Girasole may be one of the best 1000' background buildings out there.

The model and the view from the river look really good, but that :



...is ugly.
I can't even believe it's the same building.

Obviously it wouldn't look like that. But as far as the "shape" of the tower goes, its no different to me than a building like the Sears Tower.

Stick a pair of oversized antennas on top, and you've got Chicago's Hancock tower...

But I don't see how this can be reconciled with the (admittedly far more attractive) rendering:

From this aerial of the west side by hammernet, you can see where the digging was done for the site of the Girasole...

That makes no sense. Re-evaluate your thinking on that sentence and try again.

The erudite eloquence of your opinion is matched only with the unabashed candor with which it is presented. How did you become such an exemplar of rational thinking?
