I may be missing a few things here, but......
I have to ask (rhetorically, if you wish...and with all seriously due respect):
Can I assume from the tenor of your posts that you may have been given privileged access to official renders and are now dropping a hint or two
Or are you indeed radically lowballing all of our expectations
to what IMHO may be no prupose?
IMHO (again), merely offering hyper-pessimistic guesswork one way or the other
seems unfair to the people involved in the building's design.
But that's me.
I admit to not being as knowledgeable of Mr. Macklowe's exploits as you and--I would assume--many others on this board. But I have researched enough to opine that his choice of architect has no objections from me.
I'm just suggesting that we give the involved parties a chance to prove some of us wrong (or right, or anywhere beyond or between), especially given the swank section of Town in which this building is to rise.
