This would look better if it were taller, not as wide, and had a crown.


#87

I agree with all your points RW!

I’m sure there will be modifications. More than anything, I wish it can be taller. Maybe adding another section would make it look better proportionately.


#88

I agree, VG.

This won’t rise for a long time. I think it’s the largest tower proposed in NY in terms of SF and will require at least a 1m SF commitment. I suspect that Tishman will seek higher rents than 2 WTC, 50 HY, or Girasole.

I think the design will evolve over time.


#89

Keep stacking!


#90

I still don’t think this anywhere near the final design. I predict taller and skinnier


#91

I agee, Vortex.

Even Tishman said it’s a preliminary design.


#92

If is that so, I hope this tower turns out better and still a nice one to be built there. :slight_smile:


#93

I don’t know about taller and skinnier. If anything, it seems like 30 HY is turning out to be the exception rather than the rule along Hudson Boulevard. I think a similarly-scaled behemoth is probably the likeliest evolution of the design, sans any frills like wraparound outdoor terraces etc.

While I would very much prefer a taller & soaring mixed-use building, if this is office-only, the likelihood of that is not high.


#94

I disagree. I think that this won’t rise for a very long time, and for all we know, by the time it does, the design will be very different and much better.


#95

Thats all we can hope for… a better design. The likelihood is bulky and probably taller than what we are seeing.
I predict it to come in the second wave (now that sounds ominous)


#96

Now the tallest building in Thailand, MahaNakhon stands at 1,031 feet tall. It reminds me a bit of this tower. MahaNakhon looks fabulous, cant wait for our tower to rise! Photos are not mine, they are from skyscrapercenter.com




#97

That’s a great tower!


#98

lots of potential candidates!! Citibank?? JPMC?? Blackrock??


#99

I think that this tower won’t rise for quite some time.


#100

I agree. Especially because BIG’s designs are aimed at conceptual wonderfulness instead of being actually buildable (at least, IMO).
