This building is now known as 8 Spruce Tree according to the NY Times. One of the mods needs to change the name.

Hmm. Im still not convinced about this building. Every day I check this thread looking for photos that will justify its design.

Although the windows and setbacks complement the Woolworth building, proportionally I think it might be too tall and imposing for the area.

Perhaps it looks much better in person than in photos... Or after ground zero is finished....

I love it, but more Latin American talent needs to be in there. ....

when i was visiting the site a few weeks ago i saw a sign and apparently it is also now known as New York by Gehry at 8 Spruce Street. No offense, but I think it's a pretentious name.
