Some like you don't like it, and it's basically personal tastes. Many love it and really do enjoy the design... hopefully when it's all built out and done you'll change your mind but I respect your opinion about the design.

Yes, midtown Manhattan...what a ridiculous location for a tall building!

It will look a lot better when all the glass windows are in and it looks more blue rather than apricot/orange.

Myself, I can't wait for the opening up of the mechanical floors. Breaking up the monotony of the surface elements with those bands of open air, creating that "floating stack of towers," is one of the best elements of the design.
