Wow the facade is extremely detailed. Very irregular (more than I initially thought), I like it, I just wonder how it would look in real life.

LMAO that's the fist thing that popped into my head too. The funny thing is that the hotel group's name is McSam Red + Yellow for a building facade is just awful. Just the latest Gene Kaufman hackwork building to go up in the city. Too bad this thing is going to contaminate the street view of the Beekman Tower from some angles.

Where are the damn nimby's when you need them seriously! They really need to change the damn design. They could atleast change the colors. I'd hate to see this thing go up near Beekman Place, heck i'd hate to see this garbage go up in the city! I doubt I'm the only one feeling this way...

Yeah. It's weird how sometimes NIMBYs come out with a force against some really good looking projects and then let crap buildings, like w/e this building is called, go up without a fight. I've seen plenty of Gene Kauffman buildings going up around the city. There's like 2 or 3 in the 40s that are quite visable. They're just awful. And there's also hotel in Chelsea that he designed. Well anyway there's a thread in wirednewyork with pics of Kaufman's other designs and buildings, if you could call them that.

If a fire ever breaks out in a Ghery designed building they're gonna have a heck of time discerning what was warped by heat and what was warped by his creative mind.

This final design was the version in the SSP diagram along. I was hoping for that one. The most subdued. It conforms to the skyline and adds a little shimmer. Excellent. Thumbs up for Gehry this time.

True.

Although I must say the new design is far better than the previous one, I can't help but ask why must he insist on including the wavy, melting look? Is it that hard to design a building that goes straight up?
