Re: Skylines of the World

Wow, constructing 1 Undershaft would be very impressive, not because of the uninspired design, but because of how constricted the site is and it's accessibility for deliveries and heavy machinery in the high density that exists there. I remember with the Leadenhall building (right next to 1 Undershaft), the engineers and construction managers had to painstakingly plan out every delivery, by the hour, even by the minute. It was so complex they had to run computer simulations of the construction over and over until they got it perfect. It's quite a feat of engineering. I can only imagine it being even more difficult for the construction of this building.

Re: Skylines of the World

Heres Dublin, where I got my northern ave bridge proposal from and modified it:






I still think I had the best proposal and since they aren't actually building any of the bridges that they selected I think they should take another hard look at what I gave them. Imagine essentially this over the Fort Point channel replacing the northern ave bridge. These are actually pretty cheap to build as well, considering.

^ That's a proposal (I believe called The Kiss or something like that) which will never be built as rendered.
