Chamfered (Angled) versus Squared
The Ides of March were busy for the newly-formed Visual Quality Panel, which announced it had developed options for the towers along the new bridge’s main span — and we would choose their look.
Option A, the original design described in Tappan Zee Constructor’s proposal, showed flat, rectangular, and squared towers 409 feet above the water; Option B, the recommended design, showed chamfered (angled) towers 419 feet above the water and provided a more slender appearance.
Less one week — and several hundred comments — later, the public chose, and the panel recommended, Option B. It will continue to seek community input, where applicable, as the project moves forward.
I’d like to know what you think.
