This is making good progress. These were taken from the 27th floor of the Gehry.

now making a mark on the skyline from Brooklyn. This will probably obscure some views of the WTC, but such is the way of things. live cam: http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/...ge/?cam=gzcchd

This thing is a damned atrocity. Easily one of the five worst skyscraper "designs" being built in New York at the moment. Both the architect and developer should be prevented from conducting future business in New York.

It is a bland box with a generic pattern, the concept of elevator music translated into architecture. Inoffensive in every way, and therefore quite welcome to block views of the very offensive "The Beekman" from one angle.

The Beekman addition is ugly, true. But at least it's attached to a beautiful Victorian landmark. This piece of crap is on its own. It looks like a preloaded template from some cut-rate graphics software. Garbage.

I think how I feel about this will largely be influenced by the quality of the cladding.

It's not ugly but it's totally charmless and adds nothing to the skyline.

Oh that does look nice. I don't think the building will be offensive in that case, but definitely nothing extraordinary. Quality filler.

Luca posted a render I hadn't seen before in the compilation thread, seems they thankfully removed the pointless ugly stripes:

this is the most recent rendering. It has a double helix motif hidden among those 'lines'.

Still lame AF.
Luckily the pattern on the real thing is darker and not quite as pronounced as it is on the rendering
