It’s not all about width on the skyline, but height. That’s what makes the towers special in New York, you’ve got to rise above the mass of buildings. If you look at the Hudson Yards, where the buildings are massive, and it seems everything is a supertall, that could have a “dampning” effect on the skyline. And closer to the Empire State, where a massive 15 Penn Plaza (now with massive friends) could get built, i think tunes would change on that. Even on the east side, where 270 Park (and friends) are coming to change the skyline even further, we may remember the days when the few superslenders had an impact on the skyline.

Looks like they've finally dropped the entire big crane from the roof with the smaller crane. :tup: Maybe they'll start breaking down the cargo elevator in the next few weeks and we'll see how skinny the building is from the east and west!

By FAR the crappiest and uninspiring of the bunch. At least the other crappy towers in the forefront to the right of pic had the decency to be shorter and less offensive to the masses.

I’ve been thinking how cool it would have been if they’d used the design of 53W53 at this height rather than a skinny box.

NYC2ATX Sep 25, 2020 4:49 AM

I love how insanely futuristic this picture looks. I totally get this design now, I feel bad for doubting it honestly.

eXodius Sep 25, 2020 7:29 PM

To me, CPT is leagues ahead of 435 Park! Could they have done more with CPT? Absolutely? Is it some horrid, bland blue box? I don't think so. Until all the scaffolding is gone and it's lit up at night, I think it's still too early for anyone to get upset over an incomplete building :shrug:

What great shots, remarkable changes to the skyline in recent years...

^ There'll be more changes made before the dust settles.
