That is one cool tower. This should have been the design for wtc 4.

This would be a stunning and instantly iconic addition to Manhattan if ever built, IMO

Change it to Tower 5, and maybe someone can put a rendering together of that. We can at least dream about it.

Here's a view of the site...

The most ideal location for a new supertall or other large scale development. For now at least, only a vision.

I would much rather see this get built that what is being proposed for the WTC. Just in photographing alone, this building would be amazing and dynamic.

I like it.

It makes it's big splash at street level instead of having a spire or iconic roof line, which is unusual.

This is among the ugliest buildings I have ever seen. This and 56 Leonard. I don't care how "architecturally interesting" this is. That doesn't automatically mean it is good looking or has to be built, as some people think. The building has no harmony with anything, and should therefore be built in Dubai. Not New York. I can't even believe this is a viable proposal.

Awesome design. Shame that it's just a vision and is almost certain to never happen. The city's current supertalls are having plenty of trouble rising, with constant delays and court battles, even when backed by powerful developers, while this one has no backing whatsoever. The chances of it being built are none to slim.

i agree this is an amazing design and I think with the WTC buildings going up in a futuristic design, that plus this building and the Beekman will give Downtown manhattan skyline a good mix of old and new buildings because Downtown is primarily older yet beautiful buildings. I really really hope this gets built. And this has probably been asked, but have they started financing this building or is it still a vision/unlikely proposal?

Yeah, the top is nice, but overall the thing has a very Dubai-ish look to it

I don't like how the bottom part is curved and what-not. Like other people said, it looks very dubai-ish.

This building is good,but the design needs to be simplified. Like what people above me are saying,this screams out Dubai. New York is not Dubai.

One of the worst or even bad things that can happen to this tower is if Greenwich South is ever taken into consideration and comes to life.
