WOW, looks different from each angle along with its coloring; sometimes gray, sometimes blue and sometimes aqua, all depending on the light.

The almost zig-zag effect on one of its facades also creates unique interest.

A great tower for its area ie Times Square.

Looks so slender in the first pic AtlanticaC5 posted. The vertical setbacks and the goldish-tinged diagonal bracing that RafflesCity posted also makes for architectural interest.

The concrety crown is gronky looking though: Times Square Tower

8.5/10 I wasn't a big fan of this building first, but it has really grown on me. The shape, the height and facade fits very good in Times Square.

well, well, well, finally someone made a rot thread for this one (thanks atlanticac5!). this building was way overdue for one...

anyways, i love the building's "times square" look, and how it completed the times square skyscraper canyon. the strips of diagonal aluminum/stainless steel/whatever it is gives a cool effect to the building from certain angles. the concrete-like roof's a really cheap finish to the building's facade though and ruin its look somewhat (thank goodness it's not visible from times square).

7/10. Glassy but I don't like the stripes and looks kinda bland at some angles.
