225W 57th st, One 57, WTC complex, the entire Hudson Yards complex, Manhattan West, 30 Park, 56 Leonard, One Madison Ave, etc. Are not only intriguing designs, their size and height will help them to stand out in the skyline. To say that just boxes are going up is silly. And even then, boxes aren't always bad. Look no further than 432 Park.
