Fantastic! It's so incredibly slim.

But still, I don't get it, why not level the entire block in one go? I mean, look at the neighbouring buildings. They're pitiful.

Maybe because of something called reality? There's only two or three crappy ones I agree, but this isn't a place where you're forced out of your house just because something new should be built. They'll be gone soon enough anyway since they look like they're in bad condition.

The only thing I find incredible about this building is that it's very slim. It's a great addition...

Amazing one. Look at the streetfront, it's so amazingly small! Very nice addition to this great area.

This tower is thin, but not so unusual, for instance Hong Kong has many residential towers (most in the 20 to 30 floor range) that have equally small, if not smaller floorplates than this building, For instance, some that i've seen have a core with an elevator (one) and stairwell, you step out of the elevator into a "enterance foyer" that's more like a partially enclosed balcony, and enter the apartment, (one per floor) thats no more than a 20' by 20' room with a bathroom and kitchenette.

However, Hong Kong has only a few that are as tall as this one (most notably, Highcliff, 73 floors, and The Summit, right next door, at 59 floors) with equally sized floorplates.

In the end though, New York city is home to my favorite "thin" tower, that being the 55 floor Skyhouse, that building is awesome.........

This is a very nice tower!

But will there be another tower directly next to it? It has one side that hasn't got any windows and that old building looks like it's going to be demolished.
