    Yea I would figure it would be close to completion by now. Saw it not that long ago and looked like the exterior was close to being finished if not already.

    this place is uber fancy pants inside so i'm guessing that the interior build out is taking longer than the norm for new construction buildings of this general size. it's looked pretty much done on the outside for quite some time now.

    I would like it a lot more without the balconies.

    Agreed... but at least the balconies are enclosed and the glass is good. I think this building is handome.

    I like the building in isolation, however I think that it really does not work well with its immediate surroundings.

    This building looks like a naked girl in a company of well dressed men...

    Rats!

    I misread the post, put on my best suit, and schlepped over to Brooklyn. Only naked woman was...


    So as long as I was there...







    The library plaza renovation is complete. Actually, the project was the construction of an auditorium beneath the plaza.

    A little hard edged. Needs to be softened up a bit.



    Foot coolers?

    Give the bronze a few more decades to green up and this will seem a natural fit.

    I love the curve of the libraray facade. But trees never hurt.

    Are those little cameras poking up at the corners?

    You'd think they could have done that better.

    Why does that area of Brooklyn look so deserted?
