From a distance, the side cladding has a slight hint of the former WTC towers, doesn┤t it?

It certainly does. I really cannot wait to see how it glows in the early light of dawn like the twins did.

Crazy how this building is only about only one third of its height and it looks already pretty skinny.

why? It has such a small footprint, there is not enough to lift for a second crane.

That's the great thing about this building. It's like a modernized mixture of the Old WTC, the Woolworth, and the various art deco towers in NY, while still retaining its own identity.

Wow, that tall and thin tower won't look out of place in Hong Kong... And it's thin enough to be the core of the Exchange 106 or some other big tower under construction!

Not to mention a hint of Art Nouveau, a style you don't see an awful lot of in NYC.
