    Probably the strongest grouping of skyline influencing spire/crown of any decade in this bunch. Hard to choose a favorite. I love them all.

    ^ Extell Diamond tower may be too short to see from that vantage point. I think its significantly less than 500ft with the latest revisions.
  3. No it doesn't; crap is crap, there is no...

    No it doesn't; crap is crap, there is no redeeming quality to it or various gradations of crapitude (if that even a word):). Its either crap or something eles if you see some redeeming qualities to...

    Well whether a building is truly beautiful or just unique, in regards to the bottom line, selling sq. footage, the result may very well be the same.

    People will buy if either one is in play...

    A year from now Tower 111 should be nearly in the center of the above picture, helping to solidify a nice little cluster.

    ^ Which means it has impact on the Midtown South skyline, which is a good thing! I suspect 400 5th avenue, which is just as tall will have a similar impact.

    Well, I'm cheap and brown too, guess that's why I like it!:)

    The original rendering design by Arquitectonica was infinitely more interesting. Besides the base, which I like, the rest of the tower stives for mediocrity. Oh well, at least it plugs a hole in the...

    Saw it in person, I think the slanted or slope roof has been omited. Looks flat to me, which is unfortunate, it already an interesting bldg, but, the sloped roof would have given it a little more...

    I am old enough to remember what Charlotte Street use to look like back in the 60's and 70's. So much housing stock (apartment buildings) has destroyed in those decades. It good to see some...

    So, I wonder if all these curves and folds with cause riverlets of water to come cascading down during heavy rainfall. Could be quite interesting to have a mini Niagara Falls in front of your...

    I don't think its bad. 1)The cladding is different( i.e. not blue or green glass). 2) It has repsectable height, and, represents a nice counterbalance to the development north of the WTC site. And,...

    Just another way to separate the "natives" from the "new transplants". Native NYC residents will always call it the "Triborough Bridge".

    Wow! just visted this thread and so many memories came flooding back. The NYC of the 70's is the city of my adolescence. It was really a city of extremes back then, to an extent that hard to...

    Wow! this is rising fast. If I was getting an apartment there I think I would opt for a view of the Toren, easily one of the most aesthetically pleasing bldg built in NYC in a long, long time.

    If this bldg lives up to its name ( i.e. facetted diamond panels which reflect light and quality glass) this could turn out to be quite spectacular despite its boxy shape. As always its all in the...

    Newark like Brooklyn is a great location, just can't see it being down for long.

    On another note, I would imagine that the Knicks and the Nets would fight tooth and nail to keep a third team...

    I agree the rendering looks good, much better than I was expecting given the quality of the other residential bldgs popping-up in the area (the execeptions being Oro and Toren, both of which I happen...

    The area just above City University is fill of wonderful old brownstones. As mention the cross street ( i.e. Amsterdam, Convent, St. Nick, Bradhurst ) is important. My mom lives on Convent near...

    Agree with all the comments. First rendering had some redeeming qualities given its boxy shape. The more recent rendering makes the bldg looks like one of those old computer keypunch cards from the...

    ^ There ought to be a law against having an exposed wall of concrete that large and visible.:mad: Just plain ugly!

    Well given current economic condition getting 2 out of 3 on sixth avenue is not bad, plus we are still getting the two with the most impact (>500ft)on the lower midtown skyline. This bldg(855) was...
