I love looking at the pics that show all the curves, and then you see the ones of the flat side and it looks like totally different building (not saying its a bad thing)

i guess so, the photographer himself says "taken from the brooklyn bridge park". as far as i know they are revitalizing the whole area. last time i was there (back in january) there was still a building site around. now it looks nice and clean.

I love the last shot. I can't wait for the cladding to be done and the elevators removed. What an awesome tower!

Great building!! Although I don't like the top. I hope they add some kind of spire!

That would be antithetical to the design... this tower IS a shapely, sculpted spire-- it doesn't need any extension coming out its roof. There is only room on this tower for flowing features that match its "bendy" sheetmetal cladding... apart from the podium, of course, which contrasts with it and from which it sprouts.

On what planet would a spire be appropriate for this building? Some people leave me without words.
