I think the building skips a number of floors. A lot of them do it, like skipping floor 13 and any floor with a 4 in it, and it makes the building sound taller to prospective tenants.

82 is the marketing floor count. Several other projects have used this tactic:

Trump World Tower - 90 marketing, 72 actual
30 Hudson Yards - 92 marketing, 73 actual
One57 -90 marketing, 75 actual

are a few examples.

I have seen this building in real life on multiple occasions and I have to say this tower is by far the nicest newly constructed tower in the WTC area. 30 Park Place came out much better than 56 Leonard when you compare the renders to end result.

maybe, but with pretty good quality design and materials. This style seems to be popular, as more similar towers are UC or in development.

It looks like one of the facade openings is just windows and the other includes a glass door to the balcony.

With all due respect I can't help but see schostabur as another modernist warrior who sees any reminescene of historical styles as a crime against modern values.

true, but architecture is progress. theres still enough historical substance to restore...people like this cause nostalgia is a illusion of the past, a soft pillow to rest on
