Huh. Well, at least they should make this 1,500’ tall and give it a design that blends into the skyline. But that ugly horrible mast design should be changed.

I think I made this once with legos as a kid.

I'm not a fan of this design. Hopefully it will get cut and replaced with something better. As much as I like super talls, not this one. Same notion with Tower Fifth.

I love it!!

I understand many hate it, but give it a chance.

It reminds me of the Space Needle.

Better than another box.

That outdoor terrace will be BANANAS.

Maybe the best outdoor obs deck in the city. In America.

They'd be going gaga for this in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Miami.

I really need to see more before I judge it. The concept is good but this will come down to the details and cladding.

Just as I had suspected the massing seems to pretty much match the structural diagrams. Meaning this is what we're getting. Sure the cladding could look nice but this is pretty much it. And I don't think making it taller would make it better.

Yes, the massing should mostly match what was shown on that diagram. But remember, nothing has changed yet, we're still where we were. What those diagrams show is what was filed for. Barnett still hasn't filed for any changes since acquiring the 8th Avenue sites. That will come later. I suspect that the massing will remain mostly the same (a pod on top of a shaft).

Hopefully acquiring the two 8th Avenue properties spurred a redesign to a more streamlined tower. The massing of the lower tower felt dated and arbitrary. I really really hope this turns out well because I'll be able to see this from my window. Fingers-crossed it won't make my cringe like the Westin Times Square does.

The hotel portion of the tower will be what it is because it’s a hotel. A plan for an office tower would be more blocky. I think Barnett wants his observation deck, and he wants it at a height comparible to the other decks around town. Otherwise you wouldn’t need that huge mast on top of the building. Even without the new 8th Ave properties, I’m not sure they’ve applied the theater bonus air rights. This tower was at one time supposed to be over a million square ft. But Barnett wouldn’t really need that with the tower as is.

I think an actual rendering of the designed tower would change a few minds. But you never know with Extell. Plans for CPT were dramatically altered even beyond this point of construction.
