Guys, " He's happy this one got built " means he had proposed other towers in the past, and since he referred to the New York Times Building, we can just use google and find out that he had a proposal for the New York Times Tower, that got discarded in favor of Renzo Piano's tower.

This is the model of the unbuilt tower:

People, Google exists for a reason, let's try to use it.

Those pictures above looks like it was taken from 7 WTC. Can anyone confirm? Also, what's the estimated completion date?

How do you mean that? I just love the way the facade seems to move real slow and sensual. Just like my wife can.
And yourt right: I need to go to New York more often.
