Futuristic Midtown Minecraft project

I’ve decided to create this thread on my ongoing journey in Minecraft by recreating midtown Manhattan in a fictional/futuristic form based on the year 2023-beyond. The buildings will be 2x their proportions, giving a sense of immersion like one would in person.

Completed a Park-Madison Avenue block with 432 Park Avenue being the first supertall (megatall if you count the 2x the proportion) building completed:




Actually, the real reason why I created this thread is to not only post my progress, but also so that I can post more than three times this time.

No matter the scale that 432 will always look beautiful!

Old version (the smaller, 1:1 version) and new version (the taller, 2x scale version) of 425 Park Avenue

Fun fact: Today marks exactly 2 years ago since I first made this skyscraper (the older version) :slight_smile:

So a little daring for me to do but there’s a possibility I may put Merdeka 118 on top of the Metlife Building. The motive is that while I do like the Metlife Building at its current site, I feel like Merdeka 118 would be great on that site too. So to my point of view, it would be a win-win situation because then I’ll be able to see both buildings there at the same time. Also took some inspiration from the Stark Tower in Marvel :slight_smile:

Should I use a darker tone of glass for Merdeka to match the façade of the MetLife, or completely change the façade of the MetLife keep the blue façade of Merdeka?
