I gotta say, I'm surprised how much I like this one. Thought it would just be another skyscraper, but it's turning out pretty nice. Can't wait to see the finished product.

^ Me too. It's beating my admittedly low expectations.

It's also a lot of fun seeing it pop up all over the place!

First time seeing this one up close. It looked like a snooze-fest from a distance, and definitely feels that way up close. Even with the cantilever, this thing has no grace. This district is so chic, it's a shame they put up such a bland building. One Madison is such a better fit.

I like the chamfering as it rises, but at the end of the day it's just another glass box.

once the top is constructed, i'll make my opinion. The renderings promise something interesting.

Exactly!!



... and P.S. - I already love it and it's not even at the interesting bit at the top (not to mention the cladding hasn't even risen enough yet to really accentuate fully the chamfered corners).

I am quite confident the renders look way better in most cases only because they use top notch glasses in them versus reality.

Exactly. It never looks as good (except with maybe 4WTC). Maybe if you catch this thing at just the right angle in just the right lighting, it'll be kind of interesting. But from the viewpoints that count, it's ugly. The next time I'm in Madison Square Park, I'll show you what I mean. It's ugly from Union Square, too.
