Thanks for all the pics. It is neat to see the construction progress. I am still not sold on this one. It isn't bad, but it doesn't seem like a classic to me and I'm not sure how well it fits in with the other buildings in the vicinity. Will be interesting to see what it looks like when completed.

The first pic in post #1664 can be posted in over half a dozen threads in WDN. Lots of activity in Lower Manhattan.

This tower isn't my favorite. I bet it'll age terribly. I generally don't like the idea of making a tower look like it is ruined by heat or anything else. But I'll give it that it is a much more thoughtful and more original idea than Aqua, which is just a box with uneven slabs.

I hope they restart installing the curtain wall. It's been stalled ever since that wind storm.
