I'm sorry but this building does not live up to the original renderings and the cool video... the glass is much more opaque than in the renderings and bottom 3/4 of the tower is not much better than your average apartment tower.

Yeah, this building seems actually pretty boring to me. Nowhere near as exciting as Id hoped.

Nothing like a tourist attraction at your lobby door.
And those balconies look dangerously low.

It's amazing in person. You should come to NY and see it.

I don't think it's a disappointment. It's pretty much what they showed in the renderings. Also when they showed renderings we really only saw the top part of it. The only think that surprised me is how glassy it is. I thought the concrete would be more prominent.

What's taking so long to get more glass on there?

I think this opinion might be based on the fact it's not finished and the construction elevator really hides a lot so I photoshopped it out and it looks amazing IMO

I am not a fan of this particular one. I think it takes away from the classy elements of traditional skyscrapers. I know people tend to like the unique designs but this just isn't one I enjoy.
