To get landmark status, it has to be for decades doesn't it?

And a good deal taller would also help. 228 meter is not outstanding for NY.

To get landmark status isn't always about height like us skyscraper-junkies interpret it. It's often about quality architecture and this is a Renzo Piano piece and a great one at that. Not designed by an in-house architect of some churn-them-out practice like SOM (that can also produce some really great designs).

The Guggenheim in NYC is landmark status; it's known all over the world and not for its height but architectural merit.

BTW Thanks for the pics TowersNYC & Scruffy88

WOW people like the cladding now what happened? It will look even better once all the claddings up, when they put up a little before all the rest it looked horrible.

It looks bland, like something that belongs in Tokyo.
