yeah i know that it is loved by many and it probably is loved for the reason i dislike it. it tries to take a lot of attention by looking very unsymmetrical and unique in shape aswell as cladding. lately many proposals for new york try to go this way, while also having a very small footprint, which makes me worry that midtown might end up like dubai marina on the other side i am very happy to see a very balanced hudson yards development, with many modern towers that all look good, yet also combined with other towers look amazing. this building is one good example of how buildings in new york should look like, making it unique, yet not making it too crazy that it does not fit in.

See, I find hudson yards too flashy and too separated (architecturally) from the rest of the city (well that's controversial opinion too). What's so great for many about tour verre I think is actually the opposide what you think. I thinks is that it actually takes alot from the spirit of american classic towers. Those thick steel-like beams. I think it's obvious reference to towers like John Hancock Center, or US Steel Tower. What Tour Verre does is it takes this inspiration and mix it with its unique shape which is really a very cool idea.

The Hancock is probably my most favorite skyscraper and Tower Verre will be my tops.

On initial analysis of this building the first thought that came into my head was, what the **** is that. But looking closer and viewing more renders I can definitely say this building will be utterly magnificent and an engineering marvel in my opinion.

It's a complete mess, but I absolutely love it!! There's nothing wrong with not blending in with everything around you and following a trend. Kind of nice seeing the new mixed in with the old

I have just stumbled upon this project, and I have to say, I am very eager to see how this will change the Manhattan skyline

It's slow cause the lower and higher parts of the building are quite complicated to build. Once they get to the 7 or 8th floor and the building straightens up, I believe it will move up faster but will again slow down when they reach the upper floors, which will also take some time to build.

As far as the tower itself, sales are doing so well, it's almost ridiculous.

It’s a cellar’s market.
New Yorkers are spending more than the price of the average American home — on storage units.
Tribeca’s 56 Leonard just sold a 200-square-foot unit for $300,000. That’s $1,500 a square foot for a metal cage in the basement of the future luxury skyscraper.
“It’s unbelievable,” said Elizabeth Unger of Corcoran Sunshine, which is marketing the 60-story building.
“But when you compare New York to the rest of the country, we’re limited with space. We don’t have the garage or basement, and closet space is at a premium.”
The 145-unit, modernist glass tower resembling a stack of Jenga blocks is slated to open in the summer of 2015.
Buyers are paying $2,000 to $6,000 a square foot for homes in the high-rise, where a four-bedroom penthouse is in contract for $47 million.
For the subterranean storage, people are shelling out as much as $1,800 a square foot.
The building’s 76 basement cages start at $72,000 for 40 square feet and $214,200 for 119 square feet and can be combined to create larger underground closets.
They have no walls, carpeting or shelves but are made of tightly woven crates secured with padlocks. For a monthly maintenance fee of up to $20, they include electricity and security cameras.
“Storage is not an afterthought,” Unger told The Post. “People come in and ask about it. ‘Do you have a gym, do you have a doorman and do you have storage?’
“Is it the wave of the future? Absolutely,” she added.
Designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron, the modernist building is 80 percent spoken for with $900 million in sales.
The $300,000 storage cage went to the millionaire buyers of a three-bedroom pad on an upper floor. The developer wouldn’t say which apartment, but the three-bedrooms run from $5 million to $9.25 million.

The $300,000 storage cage went to the millionaire buyers of a three-bedroom pad on an upper floor. The developer wouldn’t say which apartment, but the three-bedrooms run from $5 million to $9.25 million.
Meanwhile, the average sale price for existing homes nationwide was $260,600 in July, according to the National Association of Realtors.
For the price of the Tribeca storage closets, buyers could get a mountain home in Granby, Colo., where a five-bedroom, three-bath pad is on the market for $291,900. In Springfield, Ohio, an elegant three-story home with five bedrooms and four baths is available for $300,000.
But in a city where even a parking spot goes for $1 million, it’s no surprise that the storage vaults run steep.
