Meh. People here complain that all new condos look the same. Then they’ll build ones that look different and people will say they look “out of place”. There’s no winning.Midtown Manhattan is having that problem - the new crop of skinny residential supertalls may look interesting on their own, but out of place (dare I say self-indulged) as a part of the general cityscape.
1BE also isn’t that skinny, it’s 9x as tall as it is wide. Billionaire row buildings in Manhattan are way skinnier, such as 111 West 57th which is 24x as tall as it is wide.
