I would give it 20/10
The only thing I find a pity is that the Woolworth Building disappears behind it from some iconic angles.

Nice shots. I love how this building is not obstructed by any building, so you get to marvel at it's sheer height. No tapering off, no antennas, no spires. Just plain high floor height.

@HK99, do you know where it would rank when it's finally completed? I'm thinking somewhere around 130-150?

It indeed isn't obstructed by any building. Too bad it obstructs the Woolworth when looking at it from Brooklyn Bridge I really loved that point of view. But Beekman Place works for me, too.

I feel sorry for anyone who buys an apartment on the flat side. Forever they will be coping with the stigma of living on the flat side. People, it's worth the extra $400k or whatever not to be a "flat-sider".
