I like the hight, I don't think lower manhattan needs super talls so close to the river (on the east side) it would distract from the main wall st cluster as viewed from Brooklyn.

That's actually considered a lousy location. Anyway taller towers are planned nearby (including on the empty lot next door). Thus, this will be obscured before long.

I believe that is a solid wall:

It should look better when the black panels are placed on it, though.

I think the waterfront would look a lot less cluttered without that Pier 17.

Not everything has to be adapted to skylines/waterfronts/cityscapes seen from other banks.
Pier 17 is great, you can watch old ships there, take a picture of Lower Manhattan skyscrapers, see bridges and Brooklyn skyline

Pier 17 is a great part of the riverfront, this side of downtown would look strange without it.

This tower looks so tiny against the backdrop of all the other buildings, it really shows how immense the skyline is

The size of those towers is astounding.

This building is a joke Maybe nice for a small town, not for this location in Lower Manhattan.

It´s barely visible and noticable now, let alone when 80 south street is built. So we can relax. Not every building can or should be outstanding. :-)
