While it's not a really big high riser, it's really nice and love the twists and angles. If you're going to go glassy... go classy, stylish and stand out from the assembly line of boxy glass towers. 7 Bryant Park is one of my favorite new office towers.

Kinda cheesy, but a nice modern highrise.

Bank of China just bought this tower. I wonder if there will be any signage near the top.

I don't think that's allowed. Signs on top of buildings were banned a long time ago. The buildings you see with the signs today were grandfathered in. This is actually a good thing because signs on top of buildings are really tacky.

I don't think they will be signage on top of the tower. As far as branding goes, Hines offers branding opportunity by the entrance with the use of a video wall and signage in the lobby. With that said, BOC just purchased this building outright and they could pretty much do what they want to do with it is my guess.

New York Skyscrapper Is Latest Property Deal For Chinese
http://www.nasdaq.com/article/new-yo...#ixzz3LQ6Xu6YR

Quote:
In the past two years, Chinese investors have bought stakes in New York's most valuable office tower, one of its largest development projects and the country's most expensive hotel ever sold.

Next on the list: Manhattan's newest skyscraper.

B]Bank of China Ltd[/B]. has agreed to pay nearly $600 million for 7 Bryant Park, a 28-story building being constructed on Sixth Avenue and 40th Street, according to people familiar with the matter.

The 470,000-square-foot tower, being built by a venture led by Hines, a Houston developer, and J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.'s asset-management arm, is slated for completion next year, when Bank of China would complete the transaction.

he deal comes as foreign investors have been pouring into top-quality New York properties, in part out of the belief that the city is a safe long-term bet, and that higher-end buildings will see values grow faster than less-flashy buildings.

Chinese investors sat on the sidelines for years, eyeing deals but rarely pulling the trigger. Recently, though, they have become more aggressive, as the government has encouraged its companies to spread money around the globe and the real-estate market in China has shown signs of weakening.

In all, Chinese investors have spent more than $5 billion on New York City properties since early 2013, according to data firm Real Capital Analytics, up from less than $300 million in 2012.

Chinese buyers also stand out because of the high-profile nature of their acquisitions. Among the recent purchases are the General Motors building, the country's most valuable individual tower, in which Beijing-based developer Zhang Xin and her family bought a 20% stake last year.

Other investments include Greenland Holdings Group's purchase of a 70% stake a 6,000-unit apartment development in Brooklyn by Barclays Center and Anbang Insurance Group's$1.95 billion purchase of the Waldorf Astoria, by far the most ever paid for a hotel.

"Chinese investors appear to have a major preference for...more stable markets like New York," real-estate services firm CBRE Group Inc. wrote in a report this fall. The New York region accounted for 78% of Chinese investments in U.S. commercial property between 2007 and 2013, CBRE found..... (more in link)

They'll move in, potentially rent out some of it but not sure.
