That's good to hear. It was probably the bay windows that made me recall those other towers. With a high quality cladding it can indeed turn out very well.

A silver trim is certainly nice. The original renders do appear to show more of a bronze hue, though. Not that that is necessarily bad -- but it would probably be a first for any Trump building to be known as "the understated one" in the neighborhood ;-). That man loves his shiny bronze. I am a big fan of the sleek black Trump World Tower, fwiw.

Floorplans Revealed For Norman Foster's 50 UN Plaza
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2013/0...0_un_plaza.php












Quote:
Zeckendorf's 44-story condo at 50 United Nations Plaza will, like a few other developments, launch sales this fall, but little has been revealed about the 88-unit tower designed by Lord Norman Foster. Thankfully, we have tipsters to satiate our need for information; floorplans for four different unit lines recently hit our inbox. The A units on floors 17 to 34 are 2,609-square-foot two-bedrooms with libraries and three full bathrooms. The B units on the same floors are slightly larger, coming in at 3,004-square-feet with three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. UPDATE: Sales reps tell us the teaser website is live, and sales will start in early October. Pricing has not yet been finalized.
Quote:
The A and B lines on floors 6-12 and 14-16 are all two-bedrooms with 2.5 bathrooms. At 1,636-square-feet, the A units are slightly larger than the B units, which measure 1,624-square-feet.
