We're sorry, but if the first or most recent one didn't do it, this new Harlem Park rendering absolutely proves that this whole "office building" thing is just a cover for whatever supervillain who plans on using this as his lair. From the BusinessWeek story we didn't find until just now:
Roger Klein, SHCA design principal, says that his firm was mindful of those sentiments. “Instead of trying to do what architects typically do with an office tower, which is to express the verticality of the buildings, we embraced the squat and masculine forms of the Harlem neighborhood,” he explains.OK, so it's a "squat" and "masculine" supervillain. That should help narrow it down.
