Maybe it is just me, but I think the building is quite ugly. That is just my opinion.

Well she's not elegant, but it's really impressive up close. It's a monster, so wide and huge, definitely has more of a European skyscraper feel, think Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt, Torre Cepsa (also by Norman Foster), or the Heron Tower in London. Overall, not everyone is going to like it. It's massive, industrial, a hulk. I think the spire will definitely help even things out, and once the blue tape falls off the horizontal braces-- will look better.

It is. A very boring design. But impressive height and size. Still not dazzling.

After seeing this building in person a couple of weeks ago, some design elements seem to work, others not so much.

I don't think this interacts well at street level primarily due to the lobby portions....seems like a design afterthought?

The Comcast lobby is huge and impressive..., the ground floor will have restaurants (already signed on, high-end dining) and retail. The 19th side is the Four Seasons hotel lobby. It’s all very functional.
I think the wood trim/ceilings on the 18th Street lobby is perfect.
