This tower could've been an easy 7/10 as opposed to a 3/10 simply by removing the pyramids and cladding the concrete in some sort of metallic material.

It wouldn't be that bad without the empty pyramids on top.
Certainly not as bland as the Woolworth annex

Hello good evening, please remind me who was in charge of the designs and which was the construction company responsible for the project, thank you.

Say thanks to postmodern architecture, which tries as hard as it can get to imitate historical styles, usually with bad materials, highly glorified by some members, who try even harder to convince us all that the twins didn't had a value, you know just a small part of that awful 60's architecture, while forgetting the fact and the aspect and the achievement of being the tallest man - made skyscrapers for awhile.

Calling this tower a forgettable filler is like calling the Elephant Man an average British gentleman.

So I live in the Gehry building across the street and this has been an incredible disappointment. I get that the condo tower was the financing mechanism to restore 5 Beekman (Temple Court building); and the hotel has turned out great. But god damn that tower is so bad. Especially the crown. A bland glass box would have been better. Thankfully a tower along Park Row is going up that will block it, but there is still the massive concrete blank wall exposed on the southern end. And its especially bad because the building to the south was just completed a few years prior, so its not like anything will go up and block that lot line side.

To make it worse, on the north side with the floor to ceiling glass, huge portions of the glass are blocked out from the inside as they built out the condos.

When NIMBYs complain about new developments, I don't agree with their arguments, but this tower is a good example of poor development. NYC can do better.

Thinking about ways to make this turd tolerable. They could paint the concrete a very dark silky grey and hire an actual designer to redo the crown from metal not PVC pipes. That would look very Gotham.
