    The last picture is best, IMO.

    I think this is one SOM building that looks better in actuality than the rendering.

    I know! I had no idea this building would be so cool from the rendering.

    I agree. Most of the time, the rendering gives a better impression than the reality.
    This one is a good surprise.

    I agree...the facade is fantastic...one of the best especially with the variety of shapes and patterns! *Good news w/ the cross bracing showing through the glass as well.

    I also love the color of the green-blue glass especially w/the other buildings around it.

    The reality is MUCH better than the renderings...WOW...this is a great addition to TS.

    Are you sure ?
    I wish it was more visible.

    Fabb...just responding to NYatKnight's comment about the bracing being visible as a liner note below one of the photos. *

    Hopefully it will be very visible...

    On th 42nd street side of the building, they're in the process of adding exterior elements that echo the cross-bracing underneath the glass.

    Good.
    Looks like the skin is going to be quite sophisticated.

    That's 1 Times Square, now covered entirely by advertisements.

    And re-clad with travertine in the sixties.

    wow, it really changed (lol); but does it still have that original skin and if so, why did they ever cover up such beautiful building with bilboards and advertisements?

    There's photos of it somewhere in this forum.
