Yeah, this looks far more appropriate for Washington, DC than for this particular section of NYC.

This building is incredibly beautiful and is a great addition. Some of the cleanest and best glass anywhere.

I am so glad there are relatively few of these featureless glass cubes in the meat packing district. The glass is high quality but plain glass cubes are neighborhood killers. They create lifeless streetscapes that few people want to spend time in.

A few of them are highlights and contrast perfectly with the historic brick surroundings. Too many and it is no longer special

I agree. This one's pretty good quality. Some of the other glass buildings going up in Meatpacking deserve the criticism this one's getting.
