You wouldn't say from these thin columns that this building will be over 800 ft.

'Stunning' is an arguably over-used adjective on SSC, but IMO it's certainly warranted when describing this tower. That 4th render in #1 in particular is awesome!

A beautiful tower

As an architect, Frank Gehry is one of the finest in the world. He designs buildings that are bold, interesting and have panache. This will be a very beautiful tower. It has special meaning to me because my favorite Uncle lives less than 1 block away in Southbridge Towers (the brown buildings with white horizontal stripes and balconies) and my father went to Pace University which is across the street. When I spent the weekend at my Uncles's apartment about 2 weeks ago I think they were already up to the 12th floor.

A blind, retarded infant scribbling on a napkin with a crayon could design a better building than Frank Gehry. He is a disgrace to architecture.

its obvious your perception of architecture is very dishelved, frank gehry has a very unique style of architecture that is unarguably magnificent, too bad you are used to such bland architecture

This building is amazing! I think he deserves some credit for this. Is this still rising? Haven't seen an up to date pic for ages.
