I'll do the 1000 here to inform you 'bout its material, dear (Miss?) Charlotte. It's stainless steel.

Thank you Erbse for the information. The material is the key to its beauty and the best choice to make it look so dazzlingly astonishingly beautiful.

I love the shape. It's like the wind is playing with the building. Maybe it would fit better in Chichago (windy city) and NYC could get something that resembles big apple

Chicago is called Windy city because of its history and not for being really windy though! and I am sure you know that very well too. ... anyways...

Gosh, a big apple in the big apple...won't be a good idea... but don't say it, otherwise sooner or later there will be some architct out there with no fantasy who might pick up your idea!

You're right, Dallas is actually windier than Chicago. We laugh about that until winter...then we're pretty darn quiet about it.

Oh really, I didn't know that. Never been in Dallas before.

Thank you for the feedback.
