I didn't see that. Did they announce this? Because they released several render iterations of a taller twin. One of them is still visible on page one of this thread.

^ the truth is that we don't know what exactly crescent heights has in mind for the 2nd site.

- maybe they build a NEMA "twin"?

- maybe they build something altogether different?

- maybe they sit on the lot for a decade+?

- maybe they sell it to a different developer?

- who knows?


those who know don't talk, and those who talk don't know.

You are absolutely correct that they use a taller twin in the renderings, but it's listed as a "placeholder" design as of right now.

Tbh though, a twin would make sense to me based on how the bases of the two towers met. I can only hope the second tower doesn't make some weird choice where it doesn't completely block the base

I've gotten the sense that this forum has, in the court of public opinion, migrated away from the idea of a taller twin, almost falling out of love with it.

Given its massing, profile, and musculature, I would love a taller, nearly identical tower rising higher to its west. I don't think anything curved or delicate would fit with the rest of the Roosevelt wall of towers.

I can only gage by the responses on this forum but my sense is just the opposite, that given the exceded expectations of the east tower that more would welcome the idea of a taller twin west tower. I know I'm in that camp that has transitioned from a no to a yes. Even if I would find the decision for a twin tower to be a bit of a conservative one.

I would love a taller complimentary tower to pair with it, not a perfect twin. Something that retains a similar geometric design and coloration but different enough to not look like a taller carbon copy.

Vinoly has set up a vocabulary that I think has some great opportunity for variation. There could be setbacks in a different arrangement--maybe in an opposite fashion, spiraling clockwise instead of counter--cutouts in different locations, maybe even a cantilevered element like the pool of NEMA used to greater effect facing the park. I think there are many opportunities to make a tower that is clearly part of a set but has its own personality.

Something like The MahaNakhon Skyscraper except have the broken up pieces be over a majority of the building would look cool i think.

I'm thinking this one is done. . . anyhow updated the floor count to accommodate the 5 mechanical floors atop the 76 storey residential units. . .
