Boring tower from a design standpoint, but i'm sure it serves its purpose well as a decent hotel in a fun location and will prove profitable for the backers of this project. On the other hand, the blank concrete wall is disgustingly pitiful. I mean, come on! At least put an interesting sign or something on it. It is after all, Times Square, the center of the western world for illuminated ads, isn't it?

Most interesting about this building is the blind sides - it suggests it'll have tall neighbors one day.

No big deal. You would hardly see that from street level.
