Buck up, gang. This thing may be ugly as sin on the outside, but hey, the interiors sure do look nice!

I feel like the only one who doesn't hate this. But I desperately wish they'd paint or clad the exterior concrete.

If it was painted dark grey, it would look pretty decent.

There is absolutely no connection with the Millenium Tower! This has an exposed brutalist concrete struture while the Boston one is a sheet of continuous glass.

the second peak is being put in place... the two of them make the tower look pretty awkward from this angle...

Not only is that tower an infamous sore;it is also ridiculously pretentious as it stands among some architectural masterpieces without any inferiority complex!
Imagine Kardashian in a beauty pageant competing with Victoria Secret's gorgeous models!

By the looks of it, 5 Beekman is officially T/O. Both spires have been installed.

111 Murray will be great considering how nice 50 West is looking.

We can also see 5 Beekman, Jenga Nation tower (56 Leonard), 10 Hudson, and 551 10th Avenue (to the right of 10 Hudson).

This tower really is made with the front side as the best side.
