This might be an odd question, but what kind of trees are being placed on the sidewalk area, i saw a previous rendering with cherry blossoms surrounding the building and it was so beautiful it contrasted perfectly.

Ah, you're right! I keep forgetting just how tall this is supposed to be.

It looks like someone photoshopped 432 Park in there as a cruel joke because it looks so totally out of place, but sadly, it's real.

How is it out of place? Its height?
There will be taller and equally tall ones in a few years.

It just looks like it belongs in an Atari 2600 game, not an actual city.

With that much of the shape already built up, it's becoming increasingly clear how tall and prominent it's really going to appear on the waterfront. Given that, this is really poised to be an icon for a long, long time.

I love how it looks like a different building from various different angles. Ingels did an absolute stunner of a job.

This is going to be a really cool building. My one wish is that the design had a little more glass on the sloped side.

From todays' New York Daily News...

Shape of Things to Come: A one-of-a-kind colossus for renters on 57th St. is about transform the West Side.

http://nydn.us/1tafH9c

The structure, which tops out in less than two weeks, will comprise 709 apartments, 20% of them below market rates, and stretch two thirds the length of the block between 11th Ave. and the West Side Highway.
