Stunning tower. Like the dynamic facade and it adds to LM's density perfectly.

Well, as expected stands out pretty boldly from most angles and distances. Guess it's good they didn't make it green, then.

Green? why would they make it green?

awesome tower, one of my favourite buildings, and underneath it is essentially a tiered box, which kind of makes it more impressive.

When this tower was going up I thought the cladding and shape looked great. But now that its finished Im alittle concerned about how good it really is.

Firstly I think the scale of the tower is too big for the area it is in. Perhaps after more skyscrapers are completed nearby (eg. WTC 1 and 2) it will begin to fit in better.

Im still searching for well-composed photographs that show the completed structure at its best and integrating well with its surroundings.

Like the Burj Khalifa many photographs posted on SSC do not show these buildings in their best light/angles/compositions. Ive seen so many ordinary shots of BK and some great ones which make the building look like a beautiful sculpture rather than some cheesy phallic symbol. The biggest problem with BK photographs is the distortion caused by standing too close to the building and shooting upwards.

green, as in green glass, as opposed to the current dark silvery blue, or green curvy cladding?

Beekman looks unreal from a distance!

they aren't changing the design or anything, just repainting and maintenance, as well as upgrading the access roads to the bridge.....


BTW it took me a while to find beekman in that last shot
