A rendering of the base:
OMG I walked by this building yesterday. I don't know why, I had this idea that the property was further East for some reason. Imagine living in a south facing apt. with all the WTC construction going on in the future. Not pretty! I'm hoping that we're at the end of the 'Freedom' $ that is throwing up this crap downtown -

The "Liberty" buildings have their own architectural style - crap.
It looks like this is about up to the 30th Floor -- is it really going up to 50 floors?
I HATE what it does to the Woolworth from this POV
I think the facade will either make or break it.
Material and craftsmanship will be crucial here.
I suspect that even they are experimenting with it as well. There was a photo not too long ago showing a bay window up, but it doesn't appear to be there in later photos. Hmmm...
The rendering shown above doesn't give me too much hope ...
Unrelenting conformity seems to be the style in mind
Imagine this \/ multiplied by 500 (and that on just ONE facade) ...Originally Posted by antinimby
Well that view that I shot was from across Ground Zero, so at least you can feel slightly satisfied that this building will completley vanish once those towers get built. that view of woolworth was gonna go anyways. i agree that this building is far from impressive
Upon exiting the Calatrava transit building you'll see this POS -- rather than the glorious Woolworth -- UGGGGHHHH
And look at the base in the rendering....it looks like a suburban church rectory circa 1965. Or Lions Club ...I can almost see the banner: "THURSDAY NIGHT BINGO"

Reminds me of the Riga.
Looks like they are about up to Floor 46 ...
