I like a similar tower also by H&DM in Beirut better

The glazing is a lot less clunky than 56 Leonard so all the attention is given to the floor plates which makes it seem more cohesive.

That's a great looking tower, but I think it's much more appropriate for a beach city like Beirut (or LA or Miami) than NYC.

Time-Lapse Video Showcases Construction of 56 Leonard in Manhattan
In a forest of tall and heterogeneous skyscrapers, it can be difficult to make something in Manhattan truly stand out. But when Hines and Alexico Group first released plans to create a Jenga-like tower that would become the tallest building in New York City's famous Tribeca neighbourhood, the project immediately caught the attention of architecture fanatics around the world. The first skyscraper designed by internationally acclaimed architects Herzog and de Meuron, the completed 56 Leonard was given the time-lapse treatment by EarthCam, who condensed the project's 33-month vertical and exterior construction into a one-minute video.

the pillars of the beirut tower are not really convincing. they are crutches. moreover, the whole thing is like pressed. leonard is much more dynamic and elegant
