The mock-up looks like it has come out of the factory slighly crumpled. Nonetheless, it will be interesting to see the final product.
It'll certainly make this tower get noticed and probably lead to one of those fierce architectural debates. Some will like it, some won't.
In years to come there'll be lots of pics of this with the Woolworth Building as Gothic contrast; two iconic skyscrapers almost exactly a century apart.

I think it'll be great, I just hope it fits in with its surroundings ok. Beekman is going to be super futuristic compared to the other buildings around it.

That cladding is just insane. Can't wait to see a couple of floors with it.

While I see this building turning out better than I first predicted, I wouldn't put it on the same level as the mighty Chrysler...that I save for Tour de Verre! It's great to see cladding starting to go up though, I've wanted to see how it would look on the building for a while now.
