It's big, Jim:
73 storeys? There's dozens of towers that height and higher going up in Toronto.
The point you're missing is that it it massive compared to everything around it. Obviously there are plenty of taller towers across the river in Manhattan.
no, the towers in toronto are and will be massively taller than existing buildings. except the cn tower, of course.
Either way, it's fugly.
What's Toronto got to so with this? I'm sure there's big towers going up everywhere around the globe, but this is quite big news for Brooklyn/New York, and having a single tower twice the size of everything else around it will have a huge impact on the local landscape.
skyscraper erected in new york not really imo the story you believe it to be.
It's of some interest if you live (or are interested) in Brooklyn which is not covered in huge skyscrapers: it's actually relatively low rise there.
I don't give a fuck what's going on in Toronto and seeing as your sole purpose in this thread seems to be disrupt it, I will ask you to kindly desist.
For anyone interested in the actual story, there's some background here: http://gizmodo.com/this-super-futuristic-skyscraper-for-brooklyn-will-prob-1759751039
It's not New York, it's Bklyn.
It's going to be bizarre.
I'm surprised it's getting the go ahead particularly as it's sticking out of the top of the landmark bank.
...makes sense...they must be desperately short of space in Canada...
for one it'll be used as justification to usher in more towers of similar or slightly lesser stature. It'll be a new mini Manhattan by the time the developers have finished.
It's what happened to Williamsburg after the rezoning. Luxury flats ahoy!
Williamsburg, Brooklyn – gentrification, street scenes and dustbin lids
Have seen it happening all over London too - especially Docklands but also now around London Bridge.
Looks like something straight out of Dubai, especially with the domed mosque looking thing next to it. Quite out of place in low rise Brooklyn and the more classicly designed skyscrapers of Manhattan.
As I'm sure you are aware, that statement is factually incorrect on two levels.
it had to get permission from new york city because of the age (built 1908) of the bank
tendentious article that was too. it's "progressive" of bklyn to be putting up this stuff. i'll also wait to see what their idea of "affordable" housing is.
btw it's still possible to be a dik with skyscrapers in manhattan too. this 432 Park Avenue - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia is now stabbing all of us in the eye.
well i don't live here or anything so how would i know.
if you don't know what city and state the borough of Brooklyn are in then I suggest looking at some maps, books or the internet to help you.
It looks like Vauxhall.
