Kool that looks hot. Now I know what this is, I saw it rising out the window where I used to live (20 miles SW of Lower Manhattan) and I thought it was One WTC lol. I noticed it was a bit too skinny because I remember the Original WTC towers were "fatter".

Looks really nice.

Lower Manhattan is overflowing with beauty. This building makes Lower Manhattan even more remarkable. I will always prefer it to Midtown, even though most won't!

you can count me on your side. i prefer downtown's skyline to midtown's anytime. and soon the cool towers like 1WTC, 99 church street and others will bring lower manhattan back to world class.
