Good catch. I think that this the new usable window trend makes the skin of glass towers ugly looking when they are open, and this is a nice way to solve the issue here.

Haven't caught up with this tower in ages... Oooo man that's sexy. Is it going to remain a dark grey for the panel color or is it still protected by a covering? That glass and the other details look superb.

This tower is certainly Gothic and industrial. The two together are very NYC. I can see that Nouvel must have been inspired by the great Gothic cathedrals of France.

Nice to see how polished it's looking. Reminds me of an updated version of the John Hancock Tower in Chicago.
