You are telling right! Not much different in design. So... 50/50.

I agree. I do prefer the aggressive "teeth" of 1IFC. Although 1IFC is much less prominent in Hong Kong's skyline than the Goldman Sach is in New Jersey.

1 IFC - I like its crown and deeper blue color more than GS.

I prefer Goldman Sachs, actually--it looks more modern and graceful with its curved facade.

if you want teeth on the top of your skyscraper check out the one in pittsburgh.
anyways, between the 2, the goldman sachs truly looks graceful while the other looks odd at the top. people need to stop wacking off to this guy pelli and how he puts these teeth on his buildings.

Goldman Sachs don't look good IMO...

It looks like they forgot to finish it.
