I like the building. Yeap, it is a box, but it's a nice one.

I love the hotel. I stayed at Mandarin Oriental New York once. It was amazing.

Man I can't wait for this one to start. This really is one of the best looking towers going on out there. Love the color.

The Mandarin website still lists the project as a "90 storey" tower. Let's hope it stays that tall.
