Yeah, per these renders (backed up by this2014 NY Post article), the concrete corners should be getting a re-clad as well, either in glass or maybe brushed steel or aluminum:

Qatar invests in Brookfield's $8.6 billion far West Side complex

Qatar invests in Brookfield's $8.6 billion far West Side complex
The sovereign wealth fund bought a 44% stake in the project called Manhattan West.
By Bloomberg News
Brookfield Property Partners LP and Qatar Investment Authority said they've formed a joint venture on a $8.6 billion mixed-use project under construction on Manhattan's far West Side.

Manhattan West plans call for five buildings, including a 62-story, 844-unit residential tower that's already under construction and a 67-story office skyscraper that will be anchored by the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP and is scheduled for completion in 2019. Qatar Investment Authority will acquire a 44% stake in the development, the companies said in a statement Wednesday.

The sovereign wealth fund teamed with Brookfield earlier this year on deals to acquire London's Canary Wharf Group and builder Songbird Estates Plc.

"Brookfield has enjoyed a long-standing, successful relationship with QIA and we are thrilled that they share our vision for this transformative project," said Bruce Flatt, chief executive officer of parent Brookfield Asset Management Inc., said in the statement.

Brookfield said in April it would start building its 1 Manhattan West office tower after signing a lease with Skadden, Arps for about a quarter of the skyscraper. The agreement jump started office construction at the Manhattan West project, part of an effort to draw the midtown business district west toward the Hudson River.

The reclad of that giant lowrise looks hot, but the other 3 towers are pretty uninspiring...considering the cost and incredible effort that went into covering up the tracks with the post tensioned bridge system, the architectural quality of the two blue glass office towers with the beer bellies is disappointing (or at least to me). I was hoping for something more cutting edge and unique. Same goes for the boring ass residential glass box.

Agree about the residential tower but imo the office ones are just perfect:streamlined and uncluttered,quiet and soothing:visualy a pure happiness as there are so many different styles among the cluster.
SOM as such an experience!

That is a huge investment. So I guess they won't have to worry about financing for a while.

I'm thrilled to see that the towers are not the same height. This adds more visual interest to the pairing.

I didn't know Brookfield was building it's own towers. That's insane.

Agreed, the offset pairing is much more interesting than true twins. I can't really gauge how much taller the North tower will be. The article says 67 stories. Do we still think it'll make 1200 ft?
