Gotta appreciate how it totally diminishes the piece of early 00's crap next door.

This is turning out to be one fine looking building. It screams New York City. In a city where every architect is trying to be different and make a statement--56 Leonard, That Gehry Thing, 432 Box--it's refreshing to have a building designed as a modern take of the traditional.

I never hated Barclay Tower. Then again, my name isn't hateman. (No offense, hateman.)

I agree. Barclay Tower is an atrocious scar on the skyline.

I've gotten used to the Barclay tower, I don't think it's that bad anymore.
