Sick! Too bad it's just shy of 1000 ft and the massing seems sort of awkward, but neither should be a problem in the long run.

being a medical student this building is particularly interesting to me. Though they should add 3 meters to it, it's already almost 300 and do something more creative at the top of the building.

Did anyone else realize that they placed the tower in the wrong spot in the diagram with the subway line. Whoops. they placed in it on 30th right on the yards.

From New Jersey, this tower may eclipse the ESB.
It's very promising.

One would think they'd build a project like this in Houston being that it's medical field related, but I guess the international aspect of it makes the best location New York.

Please build it!! I would do my CMEs here.

ughhh jesus another one. Seriously, if they even build maybe two or three of these proposals I'd be happy. What I'm waiting for is for one to move past the "proposal" point.

Side note: AWESOME DESIGN! CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT ON THE SKYLINE.

Agreed - I'm loving all these huge proposals, but let's see one materialize!

....or maybe it will have to wait a few years for this whole financial mess to pass over.

Yeah, what is it with developers these days? Would a handful of extra feet just for the prestige of supertall status kill them? I wish there was more of a spirit of competition again.

That said, I like the building, and that super-zoot diagrid.
