Oooooh it has an interesting design...but why has New York recently gone down the height scale A LOT! 253m, ok i know there are much taller buildings in nyc, but recently they have all been around the same size...there is no variation!

It is definitely new for NY, but I think it will look great.

Rendering from far away make it look a little messy.
When it's completed, I bet it will look a lot better.

Up close it looks perfect!

...I really don't see what you guys see in this building. Up (extremely) close (not showing the whole building, just a few floors), it looks pretty classy and alright. But as a whole?...uh...no comment, the photo above speaks for itself

I agree...from up close the building makes me drool but from far away I just want to throw a bag over it, shouldn't it be the other way around? lol. oh well, those renders are gorgeous though. Also, I think it's the top portion that I don't really like.

i agree, it's definitely different for New York, but isn't that we're supposed to be all about? I mean, we can't stay a world class city architecture-wise without trying new things, and I don't think this is that big a leap. And in the end, i really doubt the facade will come off so shiny as some sort of cheap piece of glass in the middle of nicely aged bricks, I think these guys know what their doing.

If the opinions about the building are so controversial it must be great architecture .

To me this tower is mindblowing great! I really don't understand how one can not like it.

It's clear you don't know this city... And seems like you don't know what art deco is either...
