    Default Downtown Manhattan in ~5 years? (2008 Projection)

    sorry if some of the buildings are off and the perspectives look weird i have limited renders and knowledge of locations so i did my best. 50 west street was actually done by lecom.

    Heh, I was actually considering doing a similar graphic, but laziness took over. It came out neat though, good job. Can you post a still of the shot?

    Also, you got the locations for 123 Washington and the tower behind it wrong. They should be to the right of Deutsche Bank, the short black box between the WFC towers.

    i didn't forget lol.. i just chose not to do it. i don't recall any decent render of the western facade, and its impact is already made, so i didn't think it was necessary

    I really hope Freedom Tower is actually built as big and tall as your render...lol

    the roof height is roughly twice as tall as 3 wfc, so i think its pretty accurate

    A mountain of glass and steel looming over the canyons of Lower Manhattan. Amazing. Metropolis reborn.

    Just having 1 of those towers built in a city not known for skyscrapers would be a huge impact on their skyline, but here in ny its barely noticeable. But with all of those towers being built in Lower Manhattan sure adds to to the sheer size of that skyline.
