I disagree....I think both are very different and very cool in their own right. Personally I wish CS would resume today!

Wow, you can start to see the cladding creeping into the skyline. This tower is really going to look amazing from the waterfront.

I had high hopes for this tower from the beginning, but it's exceeding my expectations. That is an amazing photo. Location is going to be part of this building's charm, no doubt about it.

I think this is going to be a fantastic tower, very unusual, I particularly like the massing. Plus metal clad buildings always look sleek and dateless imo.. just love it! Reckon when finished this will be one of the best towers in Manhattan.
My only gripe against it is how it kinda blocks the Woolworth Building, particularly in that view in the photo above, however I might be wrong and it might not be too bad from everywhere else?
Btw any idea of current height? Little over halfway there?
