At the first glance the facade color is ugly but after a second the cool green tint becomes more prominent. Groovy.

This facade looks promising. I'm sure it'll be an elegant box.

Ok it's a bit same same but different.... I must say though I like the fact that NY is getting many more glass facades. I love the merging of old with new, and what a city to do it in!

wow, you guys most get bored with these 600ft glass boxes. NYC must have hunderds of these? if this was going up in Australia it would be a major project. but would have an architectural feature on top. we dont do boxes anymore. lol
