I agree. Some way, I feel like it has written "Dubai" all over it. It would be a nice building over there, but it's just a misfit in Lower Manhattan.

I think that's what strikes me too. It's almost too bright, clean... even antiseptic looking. Definitely not New York enough! Then again, everyone hated the style of the twin towers originally for some of the same reasons.

I'd vote it as *OK*. It doesn't look too bad near 7 World Trade, actually. It may appear as better infill once those other WTC behemoths show up.
