The other thing that tricked me was the cladding. In person, it's more silvery and not as dark as in the photo.

Simplicity can be very elegant.

However, in this case, it's just banal.

Is your screen-name intended to be a parody of Billy Bud? If so, that's a good one.

What a beauty!

Unfortunately there is still a strip of cladding missing from where the elevator used to be on the East side.

Banal unless in the sun, but when it is, it adds a nice amount of brightness to the 8th Avenue canyon. Nice contrast with Hearst too, though Hearst is far superior.

It looks quite dominating with Hearst in that pic.

This has a huge skyline impact from across the river.

I can't wait to see BIG's pyramid in this photo. It will be a great contrast to the stepped, zigzagged Mercedes House.

I like this facade more than its taller new neighbor.

These signs went up over the weekend.

This is on the north side of the building:

Also: I am new to this board and posted asking if anyone knows if any retailers have signed leases to the ground level spaces but that posting got deleted. So I'm posting again.

A fine International Style skyscraper.

Wasn't Microsoft planning on being a tenant in part of this tower or am I wrong?

Great views, even with 184m it has quit a good view of Central Park ( but we know that won't last long )
