I can't wait for that scaffolding to come down. I want to this beauty in all of its symmetrical glory.

I hope this is the last tall Stern tower that rises in NY.

You can see how bland these towers really are in this photo. It doesn't even approach real art-deco and just comes across as kitch, second rate faux nostalgia. I appreciate some of his smaller projects, but his towers aren't good enough.

I guarantee this won't be the last Stern tower in NYC. The market has spoken.

It's obvious that he's not trying to approach "real Art Deco," but making a modern structure that doesn't follow the complete break with everything that existed before modernism. That's neither kitsch nor nostalgia.

It's taking forever to get the cladding at the top done.

Is it more bland than One57? Or even central park tower? Glass boxes are the epitome of bland. You guys need to stop having such different standards. If it's a stone tower than it has to be just like the Woolworth, or nothing. But if it's glass and has one setback, a pointy top, or some other simple geometric feature like Vanderbilt, "OMG it's amazing." Seriously?

I bet this is the last of the tall ones actually, this fad will wear thin soon. I will guess he'll build something contemporary looking for HY, that's my bet.

Yeah, it is. It's worse because its' attempting to ape an old style so closely - but makes a mess of it because we don't have that stone work available today for the costs . It does some very cheap looking fašade though compared to the real thing so comes across as poor architecture. I'd rather a glass structure. A glass neo-modernist buiding could be far more interesting than this Disneyland piece of trash. I'd even prefer a simple Mies building here than this fake art-deco. Art is subjective. Don't' tell me what standards to have buddy.
