Wow, One of the slimmest designs I have ever seen. I guess they can make them to fit any space these days!

Not so many years ago the Citcorp tower was a skyscrpaer that clearly standed out against its peers in Midtown. Now it's getting swallowed by its neighbors.

Given its height and proximity to the Citigroup Building, it was never gonna stand out too much.

Love it. This and Baccarat Tower are probably my favorite new additions to midtown.

Cool building but how do they dare compare it to the Seagram in the article!?
Come on! Foster is just a honest craftman compare to Van der Rohe.

This is an elegant, sleek and slender modernist skyscraper just like Rohe's Seagram. Of course under totally different circumstances and not quite that groundbreaking, but of great and timeless quality imho.

As much as I'm opposing many unimaginative or unfitting modernist designs, this one is really good, it fits its surroundings, offers great proportions thou thin and has a beautiful facade. The podium is really attractive too and adds to the urban realm. Again, well done.
