This tower just isn't my cup of coffee. I don't like the shape neither the cladding.

I like it. Especially the top of the building. It looks as though the facade starts to angle away at the top. I also find the construction method interesting. Are they using core filled shs columns?

It's even going to look many times better when all the glass is all up.

I like how the spire looks. It starts out thick and then tapers nicely. Is the spire complete now?

Yeah, I think the first spire is completed, but what about the second turbine spire? Can we see it yet?

I know this flickr shot is outdated by a month, but you can get a good view of 1 Bryant Pk from Lenox Ave up in Harlem just behind the church on the right-hand side.
