100 United Nations Plaza is a quite undermentioned building. An interesting example of 1980s NY architecture.

Check out the shiny dome on the UN HQ. It wasn't like that before...

I wonder why they didn't powerwash the sloping side.

The UN complex is in the final stages of a $1 billion renovation.

The new dome cladding makes the whole complex look 10x better. And apparently that's the cladding the architects originally wanted for it.

I like that they put so much money and effort into making it look good, yet original.

This building is closer to 600 ft. than 500 ft. I forgot the exact height (575 or something?), but the listed height is off per blueprints.
