I actually prefer they not clad the corners.. the contrast of the bare walls and the glass was nice.

That yellow looks like crap. A little more contrasting, not as shiny, darker metal cladding could have been interesting.

Agreed, I was hoping they would use a metal paneling similar to the accents on 10/30 Hudson Yards. All this monochromatic glass without anything to contrast it against, I'm afraid is going to wind up looking like the Grand Hyatt Hotel:

As does 3 Manhattan West, unfortunately.

I just walked past and for the first time noticed that they're putting shiny "fake window" cladding even over the blank wall.



It would have been nice if the exposed concrete on 5 MW could have been preserved somehow. Even a paint job would have looked better than all this wrapping.

Great coverage and photos - thanks to everyone keeping the information flowing.

Design - When you have a tower with a curtain wall like this one, how it translates from rendering to reality is hard to predict. The renderings make One Manhattan West look classy, glassy, smooth and elegant. But subtle changes in material, color, lighting, mullions, etc. will alter the texture/look of the whole facade dramatically. So the follow through of the facade will dictate whether it looks like a misplaced suburban building or an elegant Manhattan tower. We'll see.

Also, it looks like it belongs to Houston, Texas. That's not good or bad - just sayin'

Definitely wow factor.

I don't expect this to have a concrete core. We would have seen formwork already and it's now next to impossible with all those beams sticking out from the core.

I can see how that'd be a concern, but in person it's not quite as reflective, so it hasn't seemed so monolithic, to me (you can actually see inside quite well).

There is also a strange effect of the angle of the glass that makes the building look smoothly curved.

Oasis posted a first photo in the 30 HY thread. On this, the difference is indeed clear. The windows are not too reflective. The cladding unfortunately is.

Look at all the shear studs on the core steel. definitely going to be encased in concrete.

With Hudson Yards next door getting all our attention, we almost forget that Manhattan West is a pretty big complex in its own rights.
