Yuck! I gotta agree with all those who stated the white honey-comb pattern looks cheap and cheesy.

Wow! I don't think that base is anything short of a disaster!

I passed by this one a few days ago and the beige cladding parts are looking awesome in person, and i saw it from the 212 bus and was amazed that glass was actually placed. it will definately be one big building.

Wow!

That last shot really shows what a massive floorplate this tower has. It's huge!

MEh, not sure how I feel about this facade...the base looks terrible with the whole honey comb thing ...looks something from the 70s.... and the glass in general looks extremely cheap.... nothing you would expect to be using in NYC....overall I am pretty disappointed with this one...I thought it would turn out great, by the looks of the render it looked promising. Ill wait it out and see if it ends up looking better in finishing phases.

The honeycomb is only on a small part of the facade on 10th Avenue and is barely visible.

The first floors are not nice at all. From faraway, its better, according to the renders.

guys, big news! height has been increased to 204m (668ft). CTBUH and WNY confirm that.

EDIT: we still need more information before changing the height figures.
