pure uglyness a three year old can think of this. This building does nothing to inspire me. I t has no sense of power. Looks piuny as if the New york skyline is going to break that piece of shit in half. LOL sorry but thats the way I feel about it

Even though the price is understandable given all the wasted space, $30 mill is still too much dough for something that looks industrial...

I wonder why we never seen this thing rendered from the back (facing downtown). I can't imagine it too pretty with that concrete spine.

You've no idea what your talking about do you? This is far away from 1930 - 1950 constructionism architecture. This would more fit in hightech industrial architecture.

I think this tower is beautiful, but planned on the wrong location. This tower should be used as a stand alone. In the middle of the central park for example, but not in a row with other buildings

I don't think it's the right thing for New York, a different style. Better for Hong Kong or something like that...

I love it, but I wish it was being built uptown or on the South-West, more fitting locations for a residential building.

It is disgustingly ugly. It looks like a car part, not a place to live.

Sorry, but people don't have to agree with you. It's by far cooler that just about any other skyscraper I've seen, and I've seen thousands.

A bit of China in New York. Not my style. But I don't have to look at it every day. Let New York decide.
