    Balance between bridge and under-construction tower on the 72-story, the bridge is long and the tower is tall which are different things but mixed views to get beautiful.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
    These buildings will overpower the simple symmetry of the adjoining Manhattan bridge. They’re much too big, much too close to the bridge, do not complement the graceful curves of the bridge , and add nothing interesting to the skyline. Instead they clash and stick out like a sore thumb – one that’s very much in the wrong place. Our shoreline and beautiful bridges are a City treasure that should not be tarnished by runaway development.

    Because the housing projects there now are so beautiful to look at…

    Th entire LES waterfront is disgusting, postwar housing blocks and in prime view from dumbo. These buildings are exactly what belong here. They’re bringing an astonishing amount of units to an underdeveloped neighborhood.

    80 floors marketing tower, actually 72 floors will be there. At 811 feet high, closely like 8 Spruce over Brooklyn Bridge, who is 76 stories and 870 feet, one of tallest residential tower in Downtown. This new tower at 250 South Street is not bad when it’s finished, before it was a Conficious Plaza complex at footstep of the Bridge, 44 story tower, 440 feet and 19 story zigzaged second building. We now in 21st century NYC, so our skyline should have a couple new accents of tall towers. Or it’s better have prewar and postwar nonarchitectal dull projects here of 7 to 22 floors???
