That big photo is hard to see.. here is a smaller version of the tower and the podium.





I love it!

I like the precious design better. This one looks rather ordinary.
Too bad it is not taking more ground space at the corner lot.

I like it. I think it is sleek and cleanly designed and will look smashing on that corner. Possibly part of the fallout of this huge building boom is that people do become a bit shell-shocked from it all, and might become a bit immune to all the announcements every week; instead seeking out more and more novelty in building design. I like the idea that architects here don't succumb to the temptation to build every new building in a brand new "unique" shape. Future generations will thank us for that.
But then again, my eyes are bugging out of my head from tiredness and I think it is time I go to bed..

The base is better than I'd hoped for. The tower itself is less than I'd hoped for, as I was smitten with the earlier design.

I think the first design suited T.O. and the intersection more. However, I feel the base of the latest design is much better. I am thrilled that a building of this magnitude is being built in midtown.

Wow, the core looks slicing the tower. It's a sword theme?
