That panel on the north west corner of the base for one thing. I have a feeling that this and Woolworth will form a very pleasing duo on the skyline, in any case.

Good thing they use big chunks of prefab limestone lookalike concrete walls, this way the installation goes very fast.

Anyone have an idea what the new lowrise portion next to those buildings by Woolworth will look like? It looks like there will be an actual building, not just a decorative wall.

to me the facade looks a bit plain, but well done.

Real limestone looks great in direct sunlight, and is more reflective of the changing mood of the sky. I haven't seen 30 Park Place in a light like the one below, but I don't think it will look as good, or age as well:

It looks more symmetrical in those shots but the facade still looks like a major letdown.

Better and better, maybe some panes need a quick sandblast.

Also, 4WTC looks really great in that last shot.

It may not be real limestone, but it's still a big refresher to the usual all-glass facade that we all know for most buildings now. I think the finalized product will be a lot better than some of you are expecting.

I, an Art Deco aficionado, like the art deco influences in this building.

I'll have to wait till I see some windows in place, but I too am a bit crestfallen. Looks better than I expected, though, after those first few pics a couple weeks back.
