It looks fine, to me...

Yeah the glass is a bit unfortunate. I still think it's better than One Madison, though. I'd rather have a bland building than an awkward one.

How great would this area be if the Met Life North tower would have been built to its designed 100stories instead of a stump base.

For me, this building's a dark horse. It looks beautiful in person, and -no doubt because of its relative isolation from mid/downtown- it punches well above its weight, height-wise.

The stairs of that building next to this one look so authentic and beautiful.

I too am not impressed by another glass box shaped like a shard of ice. To me they always seem like a random shape clad in blandness.

Somehow One Madison pleases me though. I saw it for the first time when happening to stop at a beer garden in the square while touring the city by bike. It made quite an impression, having never even seen a photo before. That and the metropolitan life building are quite a pair.

Though my fingers are still crossed that somehow a completed crown and cladding will rescue this building from being bland filler. It would be great to be proven wrong.

this tower shows you dont have to be a supertall to make a heck of an impact. It completely changes the feel of the entire surrounding area.
