I like the top, which slightly alleviates the boxiness of this building. I would have given it a 7 if they stuck a nice spire on top this one though.

I love the blades at the top, but can't say the same for the rest of the building, though the facade does something for it.

7/10

7.5/10 - The facade dances with the light, and it has fairly good height, helped a bit by the mullions. And those mullions help the crown fit in with the rest of the tower as their lines are continued upwards in the blades - very effective.
The crown would have blended in even better, though, if it had been made of the same glass and stone as the rest of the tower. And I'm not certain about the base at all. It probably could have used a few setbacks...

i like this building. i voted 7.5 out of 10. i really like the top of the building, but no matter what they do to the top of this building it doesn't change the fact that the building is just a tall box...i also like the facade.

Not crazy about stainless steel blades although they juxtapose the large concrete voids towards the base.

It changes colour depending on the time of day and/or the weather. I love standing right at the base of this one and looking up at it in awe. Ultra huge lobby areas that are very slick.

It is not quite the plain box some pollsters imagine it to be.
