although the cladding is white it probably will not show up as white in that pic because the Mercedes House cladding is also white and its showing a shade of blue.

With the Nordstrom you wouldn't see both One57 and 111 from that vantage point.

Definitely 220 CPS & 432PA would be visible.... Oh and Tower Verre.

BIG is such an innovative firm. They really think outside the box. I love this design, although I have no real feel for how well/poorly it will work in New York, it's so unlike anything else there. I'm surprised it's being marketed as the Pyramid though, being set near the water like that I would have thought that something like "the Sail" would be more appropriate.

yes but you don't want all of the same buildings. NYC is going to look vastly different in 15 years

In a city of exciting buildings, I think this is the best currently under construction. I've always been a big (no pun intended) fan of this project, but if they surround it with blossoming trees (cherry blossoms?) it will be even more spectacular than I expected.

It's really a unique icon, but not in a skyscraper sort of way but more in a Sydney Opera House sort of way, if you get what I mean.
