Thread: The New New York Skyline

    Default The New New York Skyline

    http://www.nytimes.com/2004/09/05/ar...gn/05OURO.html

    ...I thought this was a very interesting article. BTW, I don't feel this should be part of another thread, because the article deals with the broader concept of a new skyline, and not just one specific building.

    (On edit, I just made 100 posts )

    I relayed the other projects within the article to their respective threads. The full article can be read here:

    No denying that its a thoroughly engrossing and educational, well written piece.

    Interesting article, but I thoroughly object to Ouroussoff's labelling the Bloomberg Tower as "suburban." Dense, mixed-use developments like Bloomberg are anything but suburban, and the notion of routing traffic through a building goes back to the Municipal and Helmsley Buildings.

    very interesting article. New York is truly growing fast reguarding proposals and approved huge skyscrapers. The New York we know today will definetly look much better and maybe unreconiseable in 10 years. There are so many projects that are being desighn at this time for new york. Many of them could reach great heights as the New York economy bounces back. Look at so many great projects going on in New York now.
    In the near future there will pobably be many more proposals of incledible buildings and chances are that many will be approved. New York will be even more greater than today. The boroughs are growing as well. Picture New York in then years and the difference will pobably be huge.

    My favorite view of Midtown.


    See large: lydia2222

    15 Penn Plaza will eventually fill that gap between Worldwide Plaza and NYT Tower in this view

    Mediocre new buildings closing in on ESB. Chelsea Stratus and Tower 31 make me cringe.
