Contextualizing Chase's Tower of Darkness

Above, a Curbed mashup of the World Trade Center site plan, and the new JPMorganChase tower slated for the zone dubbed Tower 5. Note the new Liberty Park to the north of Tower 5—the very park that a planned cantilever jutting from the Chase building would plunge into darkness.

As for the eerie rendering above of said cantilever, it's actually a bogus sketch whipped up by an opponent of the plan and published a few months back in Downtown Express. As architectural expression? Failure. As scare tactic? Mad respect.
