Basically the part "sticking out" is mostly beams, not really columns.

Also, most of the building is 100% square, the curved face only starts a quarter of the way up on one section on one side.

This and the NY Times tower are beautiful. The Times' translucent skin is really amazing.

I think it is still nice. Its shape is not dull. I think it looks better than NY times, whose color looks a bit old.

Have you seen NYT in person? It is a work of art.

I really like this tower, although I wish it were taller. It should be as tall as the roof of NYT. Then it would be picture perfect. Although, the Times Square area is not really built with height in mind. It's the street level experience, New York style.

Now, I just wish they would remodel the Marriot! It looks ridiculous compared to the rest of Times Square! (inside and out)

Here's a beautiful photo which shows the new towers of Times Square and the old brownstones of the adjacent Clinton neighborhood.

It must be seen. The facade is no ornate and magnificent. It's truly extraordinary.

The PABT needs a serious facelift to fit in with all these flashy high tech new towers popping up all around it.
