The building doesn't even have skin. Don't jump ship when it finish and say how much of a classic it is.

I know, but I've seen samples, and I think the cladding looks cheesy, and while it is a cliche, I think the design is a little too outlandish for its size. But it might turn out to be the most beautiful building in the world; Don't hold me to it. Right now, however, I'm not incredibly fond of it.

I just think (too add on to my previous post) that the building doesn't blend at all.

I think that with a building like this, it can be built beautifully and well or cheaply and distastefully, and I fear it will be the latter. But as I posted before, you never know what this will turn out like, so don't hold me to it.

you have the point but how long does NYC have to be building skyscrapers that blends into the rest of the skyline? I see this as a revolution of skyscrapers for NYC.

From a distance, the skeleton of Beekman Place still seems to make a mediocre highrise. But surely this will now totally change with the incipient cladding!
The recent close-ups give me confidence, that Beekman Place will be a new landmark at eye level with the Woolworth Building nearby. So soon every NYC tourist can behold both past and presence of skyscraper architecture at this place.

The city has put a stop to crane use at a World Trade Center tower after a contractor created an unsafe situation on a Lower Manhattan street.

A stop-work order was issued for crane use at World Trade Center Tower 4.

are setbacks still mandatory in New York?
i know that in the early part of the century set backs were mandatory to allow sunlit to hit the sidewalks, but after the word trade center was built and numerous other boxes, were built it seems were seeing a resurgence of setbacks. is it because of building codes, or just an architectural fade?
