Oh I know. I just meant somewhere in BPC.

From the WFC, looking at the back of the building. I was shocked to see that huge awning running the full length of the back of the building, nearly touched the building next to it. It looks cool.

I also took some pics of the front of the building from the footbridge and from that park, but they came out looking exactly the same as ones already posted from these locations, hah.

Nice. Lower Manhattan is my favorite skyline. Everything blends so well that I am under a delusion that it only existis in pictures.

Not terribly tall, but it looks huge! The new WTC towers should balance it out nicely. From the angle in the photo above, it is vaguely reminiscent of 333 Wacker in Chicago:

Exactly, I'd be the tallest in my country, for instance. So...today I was lurking arround lower Manhattan with Google Earth and this tower caught my attention, i hadn't seen it before. I like how the two volumes (curved and straight) merge to create a sleek building. And it gives a fresher look to that side of the skyline.

God I'm such a sucker for fat office buildings. This will look absolutely hypnotic at night once it's full.

The bottom floors have most of the drop ceiling installed, upper floors are part drop ceiling part open with the temp construction lights. Looks very strange from across the river at nite.

Yea, i was kinda shocked when i realized the awning all most touches the hotel, i like how it makes that angle & has that small gap.

The east has to conform with the street there. The west facade is a bit more open because of the shape of the lot.

A fine building ... understated, refined and elegant. It is not striking or iconic, but every skyscraper doesn't have to be a "star." It's really just an office building, but in years to come it will be regarded as a classic.

This one turned out pretty well. I'd like to see some additional closeup photos of the cladding, if someone can offer those
