I love this building, but a different color for the cladding would have been nice. It's also deceptively tall - it sure doesn't look like 450 feet.

Only 5ft shorter than the Great Pyramid of Giza.

It's 476 ft. to tip, so really closer to 500 ft. tall.

Quite intriguing. Can't exactly say I'm a fan though.

I love that the skyline is getting denser towards the north. Trump Place looked somewhat separated by itself.

I like the unique shape of the tower I also like the slightly tilted windows on the part of the tower the cladding does not cover thats really nice. However the cladding is not good at all. BIG always tries to go with a way too unique design and always manages to put a major flaw in there towers.

He gets a chance to design a tower on one of the most important sites on Earth, and he pumps out that to appease Rupert Murdoch? He is a hack.

Imagine this view in a few years with all the complete Hudson Yards Towers. That drive down the West Side Highway is going to be epic!
