am i the only one who wishes they didn't use glass that highlights the horizontal lines so much?



i like the seamless facade we saw in the renders a lot better (i also like the old verizon facade A LOT better too)

it actually reminds me of what everyone expected frank gehry's sails to look like and ended up getting something way too opaque.

The render definitely looks better. I also like the transparent part in the render,
which does not appear in the tower as it is built. But it is still a very decent tower.

Maybe that Santa Claus is homeless bum that is trying to be creative to collect the money? One time one homeless bum dressed up like George Washington trying to collect the money in downtown Seattle. I was like WTF? GET AWAY FROM ME!

You can't really complain about cladding when you have such a unique looking tower.
I like this mostly because it stands out from what is being built everywhere else and is recognisable. It has an edge to it with the angles going up the side etc.
