I don’t mind this tower to be honest. While I was kinda 50/50 on the BIG design for WTC2, and its a shame it didn’t go through with the Fox deal, but this design from Ingels is pretty good.
I kinda view the Hudson Yards as an experimental ground for new architecture. Its something new, unique, and while its height might not be stellar compared to what we are seeing in the 300m+ game, I for one can’t complain. Its still very tall, bulky, and looks nice from the river based on the renderings. There’s no denying the intricate thought that Ingels put into this, and like WTC2, there’s a sort of genius that the masses can’t see. This is still a grade A+++ tower.
