    The renders look rather plain and staid for a Nouvel design. His forte is glasswork.

    In reality, I'm sure Nouvel's 40 Mercer will turn out just great. :)

    Some of us like glass boxes. Escpecially when it's a Renzo Piano one.

    Great to see that construction is underway.

    Yeah, it's going to be a stunner. One of those rarities that will turn out better than the renders.

    Hmmmm, due to the above renders/model from all aspects, it looks all enclosed. Maybe the setback areas and the rooftop will be accessable though for parties, entertaining guests and BBQs.

    Oh please, I can't wait to see the distinction between the "spire" and the "antenna". It is nothing but a 450ft VOID from the roof to the flashing red light on top.

    It's looking more like something you'd find in Houston or Dallas (not a bad thing). So bit of a nice little surprize package for NYC.
