Let's rate Paramount Plaza in NYC...

The Stats

Height: 670 ft/204 m
Floors: 48
Year: 1971/1982 (reconstructed)
Architect: Emery Roth & Sons

was built in 1968 as the Uris Building on the site of the old Capitol cinema theater dating from 1919.
The 48-storey building rises to the height of 204.5 m. The facade of dark gray glass is accentuated by narrow striping and topped by a row of openings at the top.

Along with the ample internal space of 208,200 m², the development also includes two theaters: the Uris Theater with 1,933 seats for musicals and the 650-seat Uptown Circle in the Square.

Did You Know?

In front of the building is a sunken plaza facing Broadway.

this one's not bad, the facade reminds me of one of the scrapers in Brussels. the facade pulls up the lack of design

Hmmm, shades of John Hancock tower in chicago, but this really looks like a seventies box. 'Crap with a tiny bit of class' i think is a fair description.
