I think Enso is a bit cooler and much more well designed than these… but hey, I am a bit biased! newbuyer November 13, 2007 at 3:33 pm - Reply I agree. Enso is cool. I do not care for 1 Hotel in the renderings or for Escala. Maybe they will be better when finished. Bob November 13, 2007 at 6:42 pm - Reply Escala looks like a bad version of an alien building in Halo3. Dunno November 14, 2007 at 4:11 pm - Reply I am puzzled about the look of the Four Seasons. They went from a sleek mostly glass building to having brick on the lower levels where the hotel rooms are. I preferred the earlier look and cannot tell why they changed it to look worse IMHO. I heard rumors it was to save cost. Does anyone know what the real story is? It seems unfair that they would cut costs that way with the prices they charge. Dan L November 14, 2007 at 6:04 pm - Reply You should update the Escala pic, that rendering is a year old and the current one looks much nicer (and more color accurate). Wendy November 14, 2007 at 6:32 pm - Reply Updated 🙂 citykid November 17, 2007 at 12:49 pm - Reply I have to admit to being partial to Fifteen Twenty-One because I am a buyer there, but what is most interesting to see the towers that have been designed under the recently adopted “tall and slender” zoning code, matched up against the those designed under the old code. Those in the first category look like real towers, those in the second category are almost as wide as they are tall. Short, wide, fat buildings are not as easy on the eyes as tall and slender ones. This little shootout is a fun idea Wendy – how about another shoot out with some other towers that you have not included, like ICON Tower, 5th + Madison, Enso, etc. Dunno November 18, 2007 at 6:49 pm - Reply Hey Wendy.
