No, they also eliminated some columns, brought the lateral columns protruding the facade closer to the core, eliminated an office floor and a mechanical one, redesigned the louvered panels from the plenums, modified the entire podium, removed the big screen facing Greenwich Street, changed the parapet design, got rid of the lateral diagonal bracing, among other modifications.

It wasn't stupid at all, in fact it was unique and had a meaning. This tower had so many great features go to waste :/ Here's a video I took from 30 miles out

He used to post his pictures on here all the time, until one day one of the mods asked him not to use large coloured fonts in his posts for some reason.
He took the hump and flounced off like a typical gay boy drama queen.

Ask erbse, he was the mod who upset him. He does post good pics but he does like to be loved, and he did flounce off, and it sounds like he's still flouncing if he insists his pics shouldn't be posted here.
