It does have a nice base though. Can't wait to see this new building up and done. I've had just about enough of these blue glass towers going up, it's about time we throw some stone in there...
Yeh, I can't wait for the price of gas to return to normal so I can afford to drive to the city again!

I seriously need to participate with an update soon.

I think that this building will become 6WTC when complete. There can't be no 6WTC in the new WTC, makes no sense and is completely stupid. Also, I thought construction was starting on this in June? Thats what Larry said.

I found a very interesting video that details the plans for 99 Church Street development - click here for the video.

Not going to "go back to normal". Try the train.

I am not driving out of my way to the train station - not when I can drive directly into Manhattan without stopping at a single traffic light between the Turnpike and the parking garage in Manhattan.

i like it. It's different from all of those blue glass buildings that seem to be getting built like crazy. It's getting boring.

I'm glad that there seems to be so many others on this thread that aren't impressed with shiny blue glass either. More stone is so refreshing, especially this near to WTC... don't get me wrong, the WTC site is going to be stunning, but with those five towers plus Goldman-Sachs all so proximal to one another, the place is going to look like a funhouse hall of mirrors.

and the other one 55 something is also a blue glass building, if this building is LEED certified that is awesome

I dont mind glass buildings, as long as they aren't boxes, but even some boxes can be fantastic, the WTC are probably some of the most amazing looking skyscrapers in the world. Here in the UK, we also have some fantastic skyscrapers to look foward to, with quality as high as these.

Great addition for that area, I think all that new glass around there is great. I love glass, for me the best looking buildings in the world, all have glass facade, except ESB.
It looks like NY is only building pencil towers these days, when it comes to residential towers. A good thing if you ask me.

Am I the only one, who finds that highrise pretty out of the context, so close to the new cluster?

Not so, I would say, especially if you keep in mind its proximity to much older and equally large and (some might say more) beautiful stone buildings (read: Woolworth).

I agree. it seems to be a good transitional building between the older towers and the new WTC.
