So it is topped out, right? The cladding looks sweet, it will fit very well into the area...

I see a building with a triangle on top in both photos, designed by the same architect. Not much else in common

I like the design, but until the WTC begins to rise, Goldman Sachs will be just an average height skyscraper.

missing...hum...its like New York's two front teeth are missing!

This tower fits nice but should have been 1-200' taller.
It blends into the skyline too much.

Hey, I like the Goldman Sachs Tower, it will add much needed density to the skyline.

There is still plenty of space in Lower Manhattan for super towers to be built.

It's the same architect.. Cesar Pelli, who also design the Petronas.
I agree that the effect of the tower depends on the surroundings
