There is nothing cheap about this tower. The glass is amazing. When the wild top floors are built, this will be another NY landmark.

maybe you should base your judgement from photos taken on a non dreary day. Take the photo just posted now...

I just don't see how it doesn't match with the render? So far what's built is exactly what's shown in the rendering.

The somewhat random balconies is a more fair criticism, but once this tower is complete it will look much better.

I still think the glass should have been like what's at 4WTC. It would help the concrete balconies make such a more elegant impact.

Those concrete balconies look utterly gruesome. What were they thinking?

I agree with you guys and gals that the glass facade looks a little better on the more recent photos. But the renders suggested a lot more transparency and airiness (as most glass facade renders do), so it's just another visualisation fraud. Check for yourself.

'Another visualisation fraud' seems like a pretty strong way of putting it. The job of the people making those visualisations is to make the building look as good as possible.

I'm of the thinking that with the right light, on the right day, with some of the incredible standard of photography often posted on this site - this building will look pretty damn close to the visualizations. I also think the glass railing additions will soften the balconies a lot.

I've never liked the design of these building. & something tells me I'll hate it even more, when it's finished.

Floors 10 through 40 seem like a bit of a cop out, but I like the top and bottom of this building. It will stand out.
