Terrific.
Lower Manhattan needs a bit a diversity and 'none-boxyness'. OK! Those are stacked cubes! Fair enough, but you know what I mean...

Great concept. This gives the chance to the dwellers to have many open spaces in their apartments.

Personally, I love this tower!

There is something about the design that says, "we are different!" -- and this is what New York is all about!

Unbelievable building! Not fancy and posh, though attractive and real. I hope this will be the beginning (among some others) of a new skyscraper generation.
