I kind of don't like the gold and silver. I think the apexes would look better simply black.

Gorgeous!

I guess we'll have to wait for the next cycle for the Park Lane, but a show stopper will rise there too.

As someone who posted about this back in 2007, I can't believe this is getting built, or that it is already half finished.

There are some great boxes on 6th. I would hope that only a few get demolished and the nicer ones kept. The Hilton is not the greatest one so it can go. There are others though that I like with nice facade lines.

it's almost impossible to translate through pictures how much this tower stands out when seeing it in person. The cladding is actually darker than it looks. Absolutely love it!

The few times I've passed by, I've always seen quite a few New Yorkers and tourists alike stop dead in their tracks and stare up in amazement.

Nice shots Street!

I'm honestly so amazed at how thin this tower is getting. I know that Stienway is much thinner but still.

This is starting to look just as thin as Stienway and I love it!!!
