I agree, and it also draws attention to it self with it's angular curtainwall, but it's certainly NOT flamboyant, or overbearing, but instead very "corperate"

That's a beautiful picture. Just imagine it when it's finished, with the tip of the spire taller than the conde nast antennae which is right next to it

Love it.

Though I wish the glass were more reflective, as that is what we were promised in the renderings. But I guess renderings aren't always representative of the final product.

I was attending a meeting at 1540 Broadway today and happened to notice that the new glass on the Verizon Building was starting to appear at groud level, the construction workers were unloading it from their truck.
