Beautiful building. Terrific massing, very much art-deco inspired, and fits in with its neighbors. Instant classic! A wonderful gift to Gotham.

It's a nice looking tower, but because of the location it doesn't really stand out and the design makes it look like it has been there since forever, so overall not a great addition to the skyline. I would have liked to see this towering over an area where it would been the real centerpoint and gotten the attention it deserves.

I personally don't think 30 Park Place is meant to stand out; but instead offer a contrast and a sense of diversity to a skyline which already incorporates many different architectural styles - it's more of an addition than something which is meant to be brilliantly innovative.

It certainly would have been nicer if 30 Park Place and 56 Leonard switched places. At 100 ft taller than 56 Leonard, it would have absolutely towered over Tribeca.
