Yeah it's a beauty, great work. Is it an optical illusion or does the cladding aktually gets darker towards the top?

New Public Plaza will Encircle Helmut Jahn’s West Street Tower
http://ny.curbed.com/2016/7/21/12251...za-helmut-jahn



Quote:
Helmut Jahn’s new 782-foot-tall condo tower, 50 West Street, will soon be complemented by its very own pedestrian plaza. The Wall Street Journal reports that this fall will mark the reveal of the new privately-owned public space that will function not only as an urban oasis but also as a deterrent to the sidewalk traffic that would’ve increased as a result of the glassy pedestrian bridge pending construction above West Street.
...
As for Jahn’s tower, more than half of the 191 condo units are already in contract with prices
for the apartments asking between $1.615 million and $18.63 million.

Public Plaza, Pedestrian Bridge Outside 50 West Street Revealed, Financial District
http://newyorkyimby.com/2016/07/publ...-district.html



Quote:
Now that exterior work has completed on 50 West Street – the 64-story, 191-unit mixed-use tower dubbed simply “50 West” under development in the Financial District – crews are now focused on building a 6,800-square-foot public plaza around the base of the building and a pedestrian bridge over West Street (a.k.a. the West Side Highway). Renderings of the spaces have been revealed by the Wall Street Journal. The 24-hour plaza will feature an art gallery, a café, vegetation, and seating. The pedestrian bridge, dubbed the West Thames Street Bridge, will feed directly into the plaza. It will boast steel structural supports and a glass roof and walls. The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) is building the new pedestrian bridge, which will replace the Rector Street bridge located a block northward. Demolition of the Rector Street bridge and construction of the new one is expected to last two years.

[...]
...WXY Studio is behind the design of the new pedestrian bridge.

Special status should be given to downtown skyscrapers.
