Why the delay with cladding on the south face? The temporary platform for the derrick is gone. Keen to see this one finished

Sooo beautifully decorated on the outside. Outstanding. Compare this work of art with the travesty rising up a few blocs to the north--the Central Park Tower. Its exterior is just the cheapest possible thing: no decoration, no artful design, no nothing: just curtains of nondescript gray tone glass. that IS all!!!

It's not decorated, it's cladded.

Not sold at all on that gold cladding. Definitely would've preferred it be all black. Other than the height chop, my only complaint against this masterpiece.

It's giving the rest of the skyline the finger.

Finally! The architectural idea has been revealed! Rejoice folks: it's not a meaningless shard anymore

Of the modern 21st Century towers I could definitely see agreeing with you there. However, IMO this will always be #1:

Great tower but the color gold and silver don't work. It was a complete unnecessary risk.

To me the silver and gold crowning makes the tower even more special & beautiful and the fading effect has been accomplished very well.
