This building does a fairly good job of fading into the background.
From that last view it's almost completely blocked, and I guess it looks best that way.
I hate this tower. Nothing was done right...the massing and facade are terrible.
Crappy building. The only thing I will give it is that at least it has a pretty diverse mix of retail and doesn't contain the standard Duane Reade or Chase. Other than that, pretty unimpressive building.
I'm a bit more lenient than you guys. While it is no gem, I think it is all right, especially considering all the horrible stuff we have seen.
Btw, anyone know what had occupied the site before? I'm hoping it was a parking lot.
Tall? Houses many nicely? Respectable interior? Solid financial backing? Unobtrusive-looking facade? Blends in with its venue? Downstairs retail mix OK? View of it blocked from many angles? Then it's a thumbs up in my book.
That living room in one of the pics of the 2 Bedroom + Den apartment is insanely small. I just can't imagine spending over a million dollars for such a small, unimpressive apartment.
If The Roof Is A-Rockin'...

There are perks, and then there are perks.
Gotham’s City, the collection of three Gotham Organization luxury buildings in Midtown, has launched a rooftop concert series, complete with a real Empire State Building backdrop, as an added perk for tenants willing to fork over at least $3,000 monthly for what the residential giant dubbed an “alcove.”
To kick off the OpenA.I.R (Artist in Residence) series, singer-songwriter Charlotte Sometimes performed Monday night for 220 guests atop the 48-story Atlas New York building, at 38th Street and Sixth Avenue.
From here on out, musicians, including Lady GaGa and Switches, will perform on a bi-weekly basis.
The complex’s three buildings, which also include Nicole at 400 West 55th Street and New Gotham at 520 West 43rd Street, house about 1,150 tenants. One-bedrooms start at about $3,500 and two-bedrooms at around $5,500.
