The only thing I dislike about this tower is that it blocked a nice view of the Woolworth Building from Brooklyn. But the waves on it grew on me, and like it's been said, looks MUCH better in real life than the renders.

I like the look of this building but it would probably be more suited amidst a cluster rather than standing alone amongst relatively low rising buildings.

I have to say I find the location perfect. A building with a skin like this one needs to stand alone...course it probably won't for too long.

The building itself is not that remarkable, but the cladding is among the best in the world! This is perfect for New York!

I think they meant the overall design of the building, because it's just a few setbacks. The cladding really does bring this building to life and makes it very unique, though.

Hey Bond, James Bond, was that picture taken in a helicopter? Looks awesome, but isn't that where the small plane and helicopter collided?

I like the location of this tower. It will be spectacular when the entire area is filled with skyscrapers.

Isn't it also amazing that the first several rows of buildings along the river are completely built on landfill?

Most of the new construction in NYC is re-enforced concrete. Cheaper, and post 9/11 more likely to get approved on the taller projects.
