The glass on this tower is nice. I hope that Tessler and Fischer build something decent next door at 172-176 Madison.

It actually doesn't look that bad. I'm gonna try to get a closer look when I get a chance.

This turned out nicely. The glass is great, and the shape is nice. This area has long been viewed as Class C, despite the fact that it's filled with stunning old buildings. Due to the fact that it's a "low rent" district, no developer will go all out here.

I hope that something decent is built next door and at the two nearby sites on 5th.

I agree. This tower looks very nice and the glass is very cool.

They should have just kept it all glass and not added that brown stripe, or messy venting.

It's so 80s, I wouldn't be surprised if they clad the interior with glossy red granite and marble..

I despise this tower for looking somewhat dated but somehow it looks way better in real life than in renderings. Was expecting far worse.

I think it's pretty good for filler in an emerging area.

Only in NY! If this were being built in Charlotte, Minneapolis, or Phoenix (let alone Atlanta or Dallas), the locals would be going wild over it. Here, it's just another 500 footer and a drop in the ocean .

It looks like a tornado struck it.

Tower looking good! Great filler.









Nice touch with the columns that will extends into the tower from the podium.
