I thought its completion was due 2009 which is next year but could've changed.

Thing about this is that when comming inti NYC from NJ direction through Brooklyn Bridge, this tower will be well visible like former WTC was.

I'm very sure this will attract even more people than AQUA Chicago when this is covered up in cladding. This design is just superb.

Such an amazing tower, it's going to look sensational with the World Trade Center. Can't believe how fast this is rising too.

i like to think of it as a great view from a beautiful modern building, of a beautiful classic building with so much history, you don't like this buildings much now but when the cladding comes on and the building is done you will love it

We are all entitled to our opinions.

I personally love this tower I will be happy to see built next to one of my favourite towers - Woolworths. In that way we get two gems!!

I don't think this could possibly turn out to be a gem.


The MoMa expansion seems to be the only modern tower coming up in NYC with such potential.

But judging from Gehry's track record, I am confident it will be a gem.
