Love this graceful and slender tower. Sort of an archetypal New York skyscraper design. Fits beautifully in the skyline.

Close up of the top. Amazing the contrast with Woolworth. You'd almost think this has been part of the skyline since the 30's. It integrates very well with its surroundings.

Although its quite apparent in terms of aesthetic between the two. Woolworth is just art. While this attempts to mimic it, it can't touch Woolworth in terms of style.

I agree. Its integration is so good that the skyline wouldn't look the same with it. Designs from Peter Poon or Kaufman get lost in the skyscraper jungle, with thier lackluster design, but the great Stern understands the city, and such, designs something that draws elements of its predominant style; that being art-deco, only a modern twist on it.

Our good friend Thomas Koloski over at YIMBY made a rendering of a completed version. Note 56 Leonard. Same pic, but modified. Beauty indeed.

What? It'd be one thing if I wasn't posting here. But I am...I posted the exact same stuff in the post directly above. That isn't weird to you?
