If this thing is in fact a definite go, they'd better get busy and tweak that design.

It is utterly disrespectful of its perennially illustrious neighbor down the Avenue.

I have a feeling that the architect dummied this up without giving a second thought to its potential surroundings.

This is why it's so important to start any project like this with the understanding of urban context.

One just doesn't plop a borderline supertall in the middle of a lowrise-dominated section of cityscape...especially one with a drab blank wall on one side.

IIRC I read earlier on this thread that the Hudson-facing side of this tower will remain intentionally blank with the understanding that another tower of similar height would rise immediately adjacent to it.

I imagine if SHoP Architects had designed this, we would have gotten another New York icon. I don't like the box on top.

Dare I say it, but hell.......
...Even a Kaufman/Poon collaboration would run circles around this Tin Woodsman dump.

This tower is awesome and the box is perfect. Looks like Dr. Evil's lair.

I can see the shady Russian billionaires already.

If this keeps up, with all thats rising, 20-30th street will start to plateau like 40 to 50th. Midtown is a monster, and it's spreading West and South fast.
