Looks like odd double ledges on the side facing 41st st. Wonder what they are for. The cladding is soooooo dirty its not even funny. If you want a cool experience walk from 8th ave to 42nd street through where the lobby is going to be.

Think it's supposed to shade the interiors.

I dunno. Top heavy buildings make me feel uneasy. Is it just me?

two cool shots from flickr ( originally posted by NYguy on SSP ), you clearly see that there's still lots of space for new towers in NYC

Took the words out of my mouth. Clean facade, elegant angles. The lay observer will likely be left wondering how they did that-- and that's a good thing.
