    Agreed. It kind of gives the building an unfinished feel to it.

    Great pic...

    The Hearst building looks fantastic from Central Park.
    Today I walked through the Park and exited via Merchant's Gate @ Columbus Circle -- the sight of the Hearst between the buildings at 8th Ave. @ 58th / 59th is really thrilling.

    From Steve Cuozzo's column in the NY Post:

    At the corner of Eighth Avenue and 57th Street, Hearst Corp. is building one of the world's great commercial skyscrapers — its new headquarters designed by Sir Norman Foster that's like an upright accordion in dark green glass and powerfully framed in a "diagrid" pattern of shining, stainless steel triangles.


    With completion in sight next year, Hearst has gotten around to the small but highly visible retail component — some 20,000 square feet in two units on the ground floor.

    Hearst real estate director Brian Schwagerl said that, with oversight by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the storefronts will be restored "to the way they looked originally" when William Randolph Hearst's original magazine building, designed by architect Joseph Urban, opened in 1928.

    A Cushman & Wakefield team led by David Green has gotten the nod to handle the retail marketing. Green said, "given the nature and beauty of the design, it only makes sense to have the ground filled with retail that would complement the area and the tower's occupants.

    It seems this will be one of my favorite Buildings in NYC when the construction is finished. Beautiful

    I love Foster and am very happy for New York to have one of his works. It is a great building. I love the way it sits atop the base of an earlier unfinished construction and oh yes yes yes, imagine even one more fully undulated section.

    Taken today from the Intrepid, cladding almost complete. It looks phenomenal and plays off TWC very well. I wish the Sheffield wasn't in the way though!
