I like it being close when sun shines on facade, simply awesome! but when you're far away it seems a bit average to me, great addition to LM anyway

Bruce Ratner is going to make a fortune with this building.

Time for the last crane to come down, so that this beauty can be admired from all sides!

I thought it would be a case of over-design, but this tower turned out remarkable!

I was in New York two weeks ago. It looks better in person. Somehow the photos don't capture it's gleaming silvery appearance.

Quick question: the curvy sides of the building will probably make it a little bit of a bitch to reach the windows and clean them but I'm sure they'll manage...
What about the 'aluminum' clad itself? Won't it be necessary to scrub that on a regular basis?
I mean... look at how gorgeous those diffused reflections are but it won't stay like this for long given NY's winter climate.
Anyone knows if they plan to do anything about that?

For instance, the Eiffel Tower needs to be re-painted every 7 years. (Funny anecdote is that it actually takes 7 years to repaint it so, painting the Eiffel Tower... is some dude's job FOR LIFE! Once he reaches the top, he starts again at the bottom. )
