This tower will look good (I think and hope), and it's tall! Another race for the skies, New York Times Tower vs. Bank of America

Great building. NYC is sure getting alot of nice modern buildings as of late. Its amazing to see so many buildings go up in the Big Apple. Can't wait to see them all once completed.

@Michigan Avenue i think alot of Aussie's would like your avatar....

Nice to see it going vertical... This will be a really nice tower, except for the ridiculously huge needle on top.

this one is racing towards the sky!! Great to see it rise!!
this thread will be going fast I think! As fast as the tower itself!!

Good to see this tower, develloped by ING Real Estate (a dutch company!!)
They sure build kick ass looking towers everywhere!
