This will NOT RISE on the 80 south sea port plot. Also it wont have a big impact on LM. Here is its aprox. impact.

I commented on this building in the SSP, and I'll comment here as well. But I will summarize: A piece of sh**.

People said it to you on SSP too, but I'll summarize: Calm down, it won't be very tall.

Just filler and another hotel in a city booming with hotel development.

No activity visible as of Feb.

I already see this will be the least attractive tower of the riverfront.

So cheap looking. Well, it doesn't seem like it will make too much of an impact on the skyline. So I guess it isn't so bad.

I think the fat green tower next to it looks worse.
It's not that bad a design, but I wish the extra unnecessary white lines were removed. Isn't this one going to be hidden by the 80SS tower?

I'm hopeful that 151-161 Maiden Lane will block this hideous P.O.S. from view, at least from the north and east. Views toward South St Seaport from lower manhattan will sadly be polluted by this...excrescence.

The top of this page is misleading. This is a different project than the one with the red line.
