    You mean the Gap ?
    I hope it'll still be there.
    Gap as in space between buildings. Not that Gap as in the store :biggrin: :biggrin:.

    There's one near 10 Times Square, right ?
    Otherwise it's just a bad joke that doesn't make any sense.

    Oh OK. 10 Times Square will certainly complement Times Square.

    Does anyone think that SOM would be the best firm to work for, because at the moment theve got the CIBC building, Aol time warner, times sq tower and 7 wtc.

    Well it would be the firm with the most work, maybe.

    The pattern of the façade gives a pleasant visual impression. Almost like a trompe l'œil. (I'm allowed to say that, right ?)

    It would help if you translated.

    Actually, it's in the Webster's dictionary.
    Originally, it's a technique used in painting so as to delude the eye. I don't know if the term can be used in architecture.

    Here, I have the impression that the façade is slightly curved, but it's not.

    I have received an email from Boston Properties saying that Times Square Tower's address is 7 Times Square, not 10 Times Square.

    Anyone has a definitive answer to that?

    Six Times Square is the former Knickerbocker Hotel. *Three through Five are the new headquarters buildings for Conde Nast, Reuters and E&Y. *One Times Square is obvious. *Two Times Square is the signage tower at the opposite end of the bowtie. *And XSqT is now featured on ss.com as 7 XSq.

    NYPost has it as 7 Times Square too...

    BANK SIGNS ON AT THE BOW TIE

    By STEVE CUOZZO


    Insert billboard here

    June 24, 2003 -- WACHOVIA Bank, expanding its consumer presence in the city, is taking its message to the "Crossroads of the World."

    Wachovia just signed a short-term lease for a jumbo sign high on the north face of Times Square Tower, aka 7 Times Square - Boston Properties' gleaming new green-glass tower, which is nearing completion on 42nd Street between Broadway and Seventh Avenues.

    Boston was repped by Sherwood Outdoor, which is also the agent for sign spaces on 1 and 2 Times Square.

    The sign will be mounted from floors 34 to 37 of the 47-story skyscraper as early as August.

    Sherwood chairman Jeffrey Katz it will be about 50 feet wide and 40 feet high - an eye-popper even for Times Square.

    Looking south from the "bow tie," it will stand above and behind the Discover Card signs at the top of 1 Times Square and be seen by a worldwide TV audience of billions on New Year's Eve.

    But Wachovia's lease only extends until the building opens next winter, when Sherwood will have the job of finding a permanent sign tenant.

    "Wachovia will get to see what kind of response the temporary sign gets," a Times Square source said.

    "Then they can decide whether to commit to the more expensive option of a long-term lease and creating an electrical spectacular."

    Terms of the 7 Times Square deal were not disclosed. Supersigns on 2 Times Square, five blocks north, have been reported to run $2.5 million a year for long-term leases. Fleet, HSBC and Chase all have prominent supersigns nearby.

    The sleek, trapezoidal 7 Times Square, which cleaves Broadway and Seventh Avenue like a latter-day Flatiron Building, was built for Arthur Andersen. The firm's collapse left Boston with 1.1 million square feet of office space to fill, a task for Insignia/ESG team heavy-hitter John Powers.

    Law firm O'Melveny & Myers has already signed on for 200,000 square feet on floors 27 to 34. The sign will overlap some windows on O'Melveny's highest floor - "which they knew when they took it," Powers said.

    Between 720 and 730. I think 726.

    726 is what skyscrapers.com shows.

    This building is certainly a surprise, considering that it's an SOM project. *It would have been nicer if Wachovia had also become an office tenant; but in this economy, beggars can't be choosers.
