It looks like someone broke some glass, swept it up in a pile and said. You know this would make a great design for a building.

Maybe that's what they did, and they were right!

I BET that all the current haters of this tower, will love it once finished. It will be the same scenario as with Beekman Place, which was hated in first place, but loved now, even by the persons they used to hate it.

I'm have to disagree with you on that.

Oh and I never said you didn't have taste.

Germantown maybe you don't read my post. But I never change my mind about a building, not even after it's finish. And this isn't in the same class as the Beekman.

What are you talking about? What twins are you referring to?

I think you quoted the wrong person.

I'm just concerned that if too many people like 56 Leonard Mayor Bloomberg will ban it.

Ok that nice. I didn't say anything about the WTC. Because it has nothing to do with this building.

It would be a crime to not build this! New York could use a few more really modern and unique designs. The most memorable buildings in New York are almost all more then 50 years old.

This would be 50x better if they stuck in it midtown. Looks way out of place.

Hines, the developer of Torre Verre, apparently will develop 56 Leonard too.

http://www.observer.com/2011/11/the-...s-on-new-york/

By Matt Chaban 11/08

"....The Observer has learned that Hines is also poised to revive 56 Leonard Street, a 57-story condo building planned for Tribeca, designed by Pritzker-winners Herzog & de Mueron, replete with an Anish Kapoor sculpture at its base. The project was announced a month before Lehman Brothers collapsed, and it nearly crumbled itself. Left for dead amid the wreckage of the real estate bubble, 56 Leonard is almost certain to rise anew.

...There are similarly high hopes for Herzog & de Mueron’s 56 Leonard, even if Hines was unwilling to discuss them beyond a brief statement. “Many of their projects, including the Beijing National Stadium, known as the ‘Bird’s Nest,’ have become global landmarks, and we believe 56 Leonard will achieve that same status in New York and beyond,” the statement read, highlighting the work of the renowned Swiss architects, best known here for 40 Bond Street and the new renovations to the Park Avenue Armory here."

Holy crap! BOTH Tower Verre and 56 Leonard! Could Hines have a go at 50 West St. while they're at it?
