It is turning out to be a really nice building. At the start I mistakenly thought that it is going to be nothing original.

Great looking from that angle, and will be even better when they plant the trees.
To bad from street level it isnt that great.

In my opinion this buildings is Dubai meets NYC, and I like it! I hate the buildings that go up in dubai, but this one is nice because it has the curves of a very modern buildings, but it's still conservative enough to go along well in NYC! It also offers some nice contrast to the rest of the skyline.

Only 4 pages long?!? This is the neatest short-building ever.

The design just seems so practical. Lots of units with plenty of exposures. The steps allow for lots of outdoor space. Sorry for being captain obvious.

I think only the trees and green on the roof will make this building pretty. It looks like something belonging in some once-soviet country.

Overall I like the design of the building but it could have used a better cladding.
Nonetheless, a great addition to the west side
