    At least they won't have a heated debate over the spire.
    I don't think there are that many out there with such concerns.

    I meant, among skyscraper fans.
    The other ones don't know what they're talking about. They'll buy anything they read or hear.

    They often make weak copies in the provinces.

    It reminded me of my history with Atlanta in the early 90s.

    Nothern visitors were referred to as Yankees and Damn Yankees. When asked the difference, the reply was,
    "The Yankees go back home."

    LOL.
    Atlanta has always longed to be like NYC. I was a little suprised at this particular rip-off though, usually they like to copy buildings from the 20's and 30's!

    Here's another funny one......a dead proposal from Charlotte....

    Why didn't they just propose an exact replica of the Chrysler and be done with it.....

    Wow, that sure does look like the real 60 Wall Street down in Mexico. I like how they changed the top a little though. Still, a blatant rip-off.

    What is the purpose of the low-rise portion of the NYT tower? From pictures it looks like they are going to have to demolish a rather tall(comparetively) building(s) in that place.


    although, from these pics, I can't really tell if the taller brown buildings are on the site or not.

    Yeah, B&J Fabrics has to go. *I think that they are actually going to demolish a 16-storie building as part of the process.
