Not a big fan of the interior compared to many of the other Supertalls or Billionaires Row towers going up now or proposed.

The spire is awesome, way better than 1WTC's.


I'm guessing the height stayed the exact same?

It'll look great when built I think :)

Holy hell, this tower is going to be sexy as f%#k.

This looks close to 1,500 feet! It looks like they've been tweaking the design for the better. I really like it, yeah. The renders have been worth the wait! :)

For me its gonna bethe same way i felt about 432, hated the rendering but one it was built it loved it.

Rumor has it it's 1,493' (455 meters) from the latest DOB filing, not sure if that's old or not. The spire is powerful and dominating like that of Taipei 101 which is even better.

I love the renders! I think this tower looks very New York as well, and I cannot wait until the completed product and what it will look like on the skyline will be amazing.

It's pretty similar and i'm ok with that. I am quite happy that the spire is not a flimsy stick like the one atop one wtc.

Make sure to not drive under the influnece of seeing such a rendering. Other effects may include vomiting, euphoria, dizziness, egotistical mania, and muttering Garry Barnett is Jesus incoherently on the Path train covered in your own sweat and tears.

Ask your doctor is Nordstrom is right for you!

Ploppalopp Apr 20, 2015 6:13 PM

^^^LOL, same here!

Edit-I mean to say I am feeling those last few symptoms already!

I love how Top of the rock is slowly getting closed in. A new observation deck in midtown will be needed in the not so distant future.

I know, for a change a spire is actually my favorite part of a building. :tup:

The spire is no bigger the WTC. It is just solid/ coverd.

Not the most innovative skyscraper, but elegant as f**k!!!

I'm lukewarm on this building.

The massing will always be an issue to me, but it is what it is. I'm happy to see the glass is textured around the building and the spire is strong. It's not really my type of building or the architecture I enjoy, but I can understand how some might like it. Hopefully fully built out will look even better.

My good lord that lighting scheme could be sexy as hell if they pull it off right. This building is jaw dropping NY STYLE...

jayden Apr 20, 2015 9:27 PM

I love it.

yeah this building has the potential to look killer at night. This along with 111 will look amazing from Central Park.

We don't even know what it will really look like either. Obviously, they will light the spire and maybe add some other lighting elements.
