I mean, C'mon
You don't even know what you're saying ! Lose it fella !!

And regarding the design of this building, ain't very bad and maybe they can improve the top.
Two 450 footers is greater than one 900 footer because it adds more density. I guess you're still sticking with your theory that the taller a skyline, the better.

IMO, it would be ridiculous to say that Dubai has a greater skyline than San Francisco, given San Francisco's density, architectural diversity, and location right by the Bay. It doesn't eclipse Dubai in height but it certainly does in all the other categories.

And I don't get the Chicago and Sao Paulo comparison at all. Chicago has more height, density, architectural diversity, and prescence than the Sao Paulo skyline.

It seems as if your motives in here are to cause dissension, giving those who are in "denial" a "reality check." Well, when in reality, it is you who is in denial my friend.

Now leave this thread.

More density??? , I bet you haven't seen Sao Paulo pal ! Arguments based on things that are not true won't lead to anything. C'mon you're making me think that I m arguing with a 6 year old kid.

Anyways, regarding this skyscraper its cool, some people think it will look good in LA skyline and I don't go against them.

Yes, Chicago has more density. You heard me correctly. Chicago has more or less one hundred 500 footers. Sao Paulo only has four. Find an aerial view of the Chicago Loop. Don't confuse size with density. Sao Paulo is a more densely populated city but we're talking about built density, in which Chicago has the advantage.

I'm done arguing with you. This is my last response to you in this thread.

450 footers are considered measuring density up there in the 1st comment, but not in the 2nd comment , fella !!!
I suppose you know 450' is not greater than 500' and not considered 500 footer.
I am done with you John Kerry !

I guess the whole LA hates me now, cuz I said 'not good' things about this city.

Havent been in here in a while, but LA's skyline seems old to me, and the bank tower adds to the oldness. I want to see glass in LA, Blue glass, just to add variety to it.

One and two California Plaza already got blue glass, but you're right not many others have it. This building could be another addition. The proposed metropolis may also have blue glass.

^ The Ritz Carlton Hotel Tower (under construction) will have blue glass as well, and is located on the southern side of the skyline, so it will help "modernize" the skyline from that view.

Look guys, i'm really sorry. All you guys are right. Any comments not relating to Park Fifth are irrelavent and must be taken out of this thread. And I know I may sound hypocritical, but this includes your comment right now Colemonkee about the Ritz-Carlton....

On the contrary, you seriously need to stop being irrational WestSideLife, you were a little late for that feud earlier.
Besides, even after I made my ridiculous comments, we were already getting back on track on the topic, that is until you found your way into this topic and made things worse.

Aluminum, get the hell out of here. You dont know shit about skyscrapers are skylines.

LA is better than Houston and Miami. I will agree Houston has a nice skyline, but its a boring skyline. Nothing stands out. LA's lovely skyline is very modern, rare for Large American Cities. When you look at the skyline you will see several towers that stand out above the rest. The ciy has few glass boxes, actually Downtown dosnt have any.

You cant argue with these pictures.




Personally I think the skyline is perfect the way it is, its virtually stayed the same since 1992. But hell, Park 5th is a great additon to the city.

So Aluminum, go the hell away. You started the fight, now lets end it.

Yes I know! Very nice huh? Um, lets see, New York City has 8 Million People, LA has 4 Million People. I wonder why NYC has a bigger skyline?

Quality, not quanity, dumbass. So get your dumb Canadian Smartass out of here. All you are doing is trying to piss everyone off.

I was just about to post that. That last picture had to have been taken in 1992 or 1993. IBM Tower, Sanwa Bank, AT&T Building..LA's building's never have the same name for very long.

Btw..this was posted on SSC showing Park Fifth's relation to other skyscrapers in downtown. It's going to be much taller than the Gas Company Tower (750 feet).



(Pic taken by Colemonkee)

Sorry.

Ok heres a treat for everyone.

I made a quick model of Park5th in Google sketchup, inserted it into the Google Earth LA skyline. (I made most of the LA buildings in the pics too)

Its going to be much more prominent that I thought!!

Unobstructed from the Transamerica Center Resturant!


Very Nice!


Very Prominent from Dodger Stadium!


Very VERY noticable from Staples Center!


My favorite view, fills in the Gap between Bunker Hill and Downtown.


My only Complaint is that the tower is lined up with US Bank, so eather it Blocks US Bank, or US Bank blocks Park5th.

If anyone wants anymore views just ask!

Compare Los Angeles' population with Chicago's and then compare their skylines, 'smartypants' and then "wonder" about the quality and quantity.


Anyways, any update or any news about park 5th ?

LA still wins, LA still technically has a bigger skyline.

With the:
Downtown Skyline
Histroical District Skyline
Westlake Skyline
Civic Center Skyline
Wilshire Skyline
Miricale Mile Skyline
Century City Skyline
Universal City Skyline
Hollywood Skyline
Westwood Skyline
Brentwood Skyline
West LA Skyline
LAX Skyline
Canoga Park Skyline

What now?




And Chicago was built first before LA, since LA is on the West Coast, being developed last.

And why wont you leave and stop trashing this thread? Go the fuck away!

Chicago's first skyscraper appeared sometime in the late 1800's. Los Angeles City Hall showed up in 1920 something (can't remember exactly when). Then NO skyscrapers were build in LA until the late 1960's. You should educate yourself.
