That's not possible. That thing looked like a tombstone in the midst of amazing buildings. The renovation will greatly improve Verizon's appearance, remove a visual blight from the area, and increase the value of the building.

If they were willing to give the building a new look, they should have changed the cladding completely (and that part where the logo stands, should have been clad in stainless steel, in my opinion).

It's the epitome of high quality, when 30 Hudson Yards joins the place is going to look stunning.

Progress on completing the crown. Looks better--more finished.

I love the overall geometry of this building. That crown and the gaps on the facade near the top really adds a very nice touch.

Fabulous building! Love its uniqe shape and the cladding. I have one question though: Will the crown be waterproof and have glass above the criss crossing beams, or will it be left open?

It'll be open. It's basically a parapet like you'll find on the roofs of most modern towers, to keep the mechanical elements (HVAV, water towers, window washing rigs, etc.) open and accessible while maintaining an architecturally pleasing roofline.

The view from 22nd Street & 10th Avenue. Notice 30HY making an appearance and adding to the new streetwall on 10th Ave.
