I live nearby to this building and have watched it go up. I want to like it, but really think it is missing the mark. In person, the glazing looks a bit McMansion-y and it has strangely placed spandrel glass that makes it look like a mess at night. The building a block south (505 West 19th St) is turning out much better.

Has to be the worst new building on the high line, tho to be fair the interiors might be more enticing to a buyer.

Looked good in the render but the end result looks like a factory.

Do you know how many factories have been converted into residential lofts in the past few years?

And why is it so hard for people to make a final judgement when it's actually finished?

I think it looks good. It mimics the old industrial buildings so at least it's contextual.
