Yeh that era looks like a completely different city. It's amazing the changes that happened in the skyline between 1969-1974. Crazy.

I mean if it was now I would be moaning about 28 Liberty Street being built.

it was a completely different mindset back then. Urban Renewal was all the rage. Chase Manhattan was considered a pioneer in the concept for building that skyscraper. Some still say they saved downtown as a viable place of business. Maybe without Chase moving in, the Twins wouldn't have been built. And now, under a new umbrella, they're doing something similar with 270 Park.

When I think about that era in construction Downtown, I think of the Hudson Yards. But at least in the Hudson Yards, you have a blank slate. I know it was necessary though at the time, there hadn't been new office construction there for decades. And they got a lot of it.

It could have been worse though. We could have ended up with this as WTC, though maybe that would have saved some of the classic skyline views.

Gaudi's Hotel Attraction would have probably relegated the WTC to the lower east side had it been built. AFAIK it was earmarked for the Radio Row area, before Radio Row even existed.

It will be a while before we see this one too, but whatever design gets built here will dominate that portion of the skyline.

That's not what's being built. We haven't seen the proposal yet.

Whatever goes here, this is such a prime opportunity, here's to hoping whoever buys it builds super high and doesn't blow it with some 700 ft high-rise. (Not that those are bad but this is NYC).
