amazing how people either love it or hate it. I kind of agree it doesnt fit well for NYC but I can get used to it.

Have any drawings made it into the mass media? I can imagine a public outcry over something like this.

Wow, it looks totally amazing.

One of the most original skyscrapers ever designed, I'm glad they'll build it!

It's Ok but please, don't build that in NYC. Just build it in Malmö (or let's wait till there are some colonies in Mars, we'll see then...). Sorry, it's just I'm soooo tired of Calatrava and his projects...

The renderings are generally not encouraging a positive opinion in my mind, but I think it could actually look quite interesting in the round, so to speak.

Gotta try and see past the main flaw with the full view renderings, i.e., the windows. They just don't look realistic at all.

I want one of those cubes too!

4 stories and a patio in the sky... $30 Million sounds like a bargain.

The architecture is beautiful, I love the height, and it'll add some uniqueness to the lower Manhattan Skyline. Lower Manhattan will glitter with the new WTC, Ratner's Gehry tower, and this!

^You're forgetting about 99 Church Street and a lot of other 600'+ towers.

Ban it, it's a piece of Picasso-ish crap. If they build it, the Americans will have finally turned into the British skyscraper idiots who allow for all sorts of messed up buildings go up.

Constructionism, this is 1930s-50s soviet union style.

never thought people would still build these.

This building is a big nono for me... I usually like Calatrava but this time he's failed.

Maybe in some other city but not NY. It doen't fit with in skyline.

I don't think it works well with the Downtown skyline surrounding it

Edit, never mind.

Can't wait to see what will happen. Have to be crazy or jealous if you don't like it. There's almost no building that doesn't fit in NY's skyline.
