    WHAT? Is this 'thing' the building? I thought this was going to be the great J Condo?

    No, he wrote previous design. I'd rather that than the bland J though.

    I guess with modern soundproofing technology you can put a building right up against transportation like that. Can't say the view's not dynamic.

    Walking from Manhattan to Brooklyn over the Brooklyn Bridge J-Condoi and Beacon Tower are the first spikes in the skyline north of the Bridge. Now, we'll start seeing the holes in the skyline filledin and Brooklyn's skyline becoming more of a cohesive mass. It should look better than Jersey City, because it does have older towers to balance all the new stuff out. But, Brooklyn still aaits its supertall iconic skyline building. Joe Sitt still all talk and NO action. The guy is a one bag of hot air sitting on prime property all over Brooklyn.

    I think the perfect place (skyline-wise) for a supertall is that fat, squat, building across from the Marriott, adjacent to Borough Hall.

    The color of the brick fits in well.

    Up close this building looks a little cheap, but from a distance it has a great shape and nice height. It looks better than the Beacon Tower and adds a great element to the skyline.

    The profile of this one reminds me of a similarly cheesy building in Queens right off the Triborough Bridge. Im sure somebody knows what building I'm talking about.

    I can't wait for the glass to go up. Hopefully it will look much better.
