I know they haven't finished with more "interesting" upper floors, but I'm a bit disappointed by how boring this tower looks! its looking less like a jenga stack of blocks, and more like a square glass box with random balconies. (an idea which has been done a million times) lets hope the top floors make up for the first 2 thirds.

Yea, the base is so awesome. I'm waiting to see the whole thing before passing judgement. I've gone from one end of the spectrum to the other several times during construction.

Is there anything you don't hate or trash? 11 posts and you could replace Rachel Dratch as Debbie Downer on SNL.

This is sort of like visiting a city where people tell you not to visit a certain neighborhood, then you do and think "man this city sucks" when the rest of the city is amazing. We all knew the mid section would be boring and we'd have to wait for the top portion to finish before we could pass judgement, we've known this since the renders came out. And still just like that neighborhood we knew about, people are acting stupid, like this is some surprise. WAIT FOR THE TOP TO FINISH. It's a fantastic building, undermining its beauty right now because you have no vision for how it will finish is annoying.
