This is one of my favourite Buildings! It looks so much bigger than it's actual height.

The first released renders weren't too inspiring. This one though definetly turned out much better in real life.

Very true. Plus, renderings do not correctly represent a tower often. An Egg on the face should only be reserved for those who call if ugly AFTER it was built.

Imagine how extra shiny it'll be when they clean the facade.

I remember, last time I was in NYC, the tower was half up. I think it is really a great addition to the skyline.
