It has a very cheap facade.Looks like it was built in the early 90's.

You want to see cheap, google Gene Kaufman's NY buildings. That's CHEAP.

123 looks good to me. Contrasts nicely with the older art deco buildings surrounding it.

fits in perfectly as a filler among the sea of buildings, i like it...plus the white facade lets people give it a second look as they walk by.

I hate to say it, but this thing looks terrible. One of the only NYC projects that isn't compelling in the slightest. It fails at even blending in-- it may be a simple, geometric design, but it is offensive.

It will be even more awful when those silver panels are darkened and dirty in a decade or so.

This is a luxury W hotel/condo project. I think they'll keep up with the window washing duties.

I think it looks great. Once the Deutsch Bank Building is gone it's going to have a great view of the WTC.

One of the best new buildings in Downtown! I love the white glass facade and how is so tall and slim. Looks simple and good with all the other dark colors in the skyline!

I find myself enjoying the pictures of the Deutsch building shrinking more than 123 Wash. Down to the 20th floor now.
