Towers in the Park

We know of several examples of breaking the grid to place towers in a park. Gowanus Housing comes to mind. Set in the middle of Brownstone Brooklyn, Warren Street and Butler Streets were discontinued in the name of progress and increased density, and a site plan was developed with paths and fountains. Irrespective of the architecture, does the relative scale and site configuration determine success or failure?

Towers in the park have been unsuccessful for the most part and tend to do best when there's density and community support. This would have to be completely and 100% examined if it was the agreed upon direction.
