Very nice towers, but then that's what I expect from Richard. Love the crossbracing.

What's that other tower next to them?

Great detailed boxbuildings! although I normally don't like boxes these ones look still very nice and detailed. I'm sure It will be a great addition to the New York skyline.

All 4 towers are designed by Rogers. This was approved early this year (Jan. 07) but because of technicalities over a temporary power plant on the site construction will not begin until next year (I don't know what month).

OH! Nice Design. New York definitely need to start constructing buildings like this like what Chicago is doing.

These towers look good and the location couldn't be better.

Rogers really knows how to make great towers and this is proof of it. Anyone who thinks a box is always something that's negative needs a knife through the skull.

I just noticed the see-through elevators, which seem to be common in Rogers' towers. It really adds a lot.

I think these towers look horrible. These look really bad.
