This is how a box should be done. High class, elegant, and made of money.

I'm curious if the top of Bacarat will be lit up at night. It seems to have the same Chrystal glass as the base. If light is projected through that prism-like Chrystal, the colors will be stunning!

I just love this tower. It's a simple box, yes, but with the textured glass at the base and the crown, and the elegant black "outline" it feels interesting and with a bit of an international-style vibe. To me this is more interesting and nuanced than the vast majority of towers that rely on (often gimmicky) "organic" architecture. It is a work of art!

Interior work might still be occurring. I don't think that the hotel is open.

I assume that the chandelier at the top will be illluminated.

It would seem so:

If you're fixated on boxes, troll the Chicago threads.

Sounds like you have Chicago envy. This is understandable, considering Chicago invented the skyscraper.

Chicago is a fine city, but it's inferior to NY in every respect. Thus, why would I envy it?

P.S.: I can only envision which troll you are with your two posts!

New York is the world's fourth most expensive city, in terms of land value. Expect to see a lot of boxes, it's the nature of the grid and high land value. This is an EXCELLENT, elegant box, that in my opinion, is far nicer than a lot of non-boxes in other countries. Let's swallow this building with pride, and stop complaining that it's a box.
