That is a great angle, it makes the building look massive, also the podium doesn't look to bad in that photo either.

Over 200 meters high and almost impossible to spot in the skyline. Amazing

It's going to be a 204m filler. Yeah, in NYC it doesn't sound weird.

Wow!! Another anonymous black glass box for New York, as if it doesn't have enough already - how pathetic.

the fact that the glass goes right to the corners of the building make it look pretty cool

I sure hope this thing looks a thousand times better in real life because those pics make it look like tar black burned jello...

I love buildings with black glass. So it might not be very different to enjoy this. I just think it could be higher, at least 250 meters ...

It's a very conservative design. Although I think it's sleek and inoffensive, I just can't get excited about this building.

Typical Costas Kondylis bland '70s box. That guy is as much a plague on the NY skyline as Lucien LaGrange was on Chicago's.
