Awesome. Christian de Portzamparc is such a great architect.
Shame that a very similar project in my city was cancelled.

I wonder if it would be possible to somehow extend upwards the unfinished Metropolitan Life building to the right of the old tower. That building has a full-block footprint.

These modern gems are really precious. In that shot alone there are a lot of horrors.

This sleek scraper seems to change personality with the weather and angle. Love it!

With all the activity in the city I almost forgot about this little gem. Looks pretty much wrapped up.

I saw this in person over the weekend and it is gorgeous. The skyline between downtown and the ESB is really starting to grow.

Great tower! But don't like the ''not flat'' look of the glass in some angles. How do you call this?
