    The TWT is beautiful, the best box in the city IMO. Amazingly simple, but it just works.

    Gotta agree.

    It just goes to show you how little imagination, skill, and artistry you need to produce a glass box tower like this when a hack like Kondylis can churn one out.

    Two other recent Kondylis high-rises in the shot - Bridge Tower Place (Brown and tan glass tower in the middle-left) and The Laurel the limestone and glass tower on the left. Kondylis has at least 5 buildings on First Avenue alone.

    Put me down for the "like" category. Trumps stuff is usually gaudy and over the top, this is the opposite in an understated minimalist way. It's probably the only black glass box I've ever liked.

    You're starting with the conclusion: "Kondylis is a hack."

    Therefore this building must be a piece of crap.

    If you started with the observation, you might end with a different conclusion.

    Kondylis does do a lot of crap, like the director, Michael Curtiz, who made Casablanca. Arguing from Curtiz' usual standard, you'd have to conclude that Casablanca was worthless.

    Here's a look at the 2 story penthouse on the top floors. Still the highest condo in NYC.

    For the interior design of this 20,000-square-foot, 8-bedroom, 16-bath apartment, located on the top two floors of the 90-story Trump World Tower, the designers created spaces with multiple layers, as well as a sculpture garden, reflecting pool, home theater, and professional-grade listening room and recording studio.

    With all of the supermodels in NY, I'd respectfully disagree!

    How would you compare it with this one? Pretty decent departure for Trump.


    Located in the heart of the Upper East Side, Trump Palace towers 55 stories above one of Manhattan’s most elegant neighborhoods. As the tallest building on the Upper East Side, Trump Palace offers magnificent views from its many balconies. Featuring a beautiful lobby of marble and mahogany, residents can relax and enjoy the building’s adjoining garden park. You’ll find all of the amenities one would expect in a Trump building with an indoor parking garage, storage space and premier health club. The top floors of the tower feature spectacular full-floor penthouse apartments, while a separate wing along 68th street is comprised of private town home-style units. Trump Palace is the definitive uptown standard of luxury.

    They are both 'great looking' buildings; but this one is better. I have noticed before, and liked it, bud did not know it was a Trump project, well done. Yes, you never know what to expect from Mr. Trump: he may even turn out to be a great President. (LOL)

    Cheers

    I love this building. It reminds me of the black monolith in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey looming over Manhattan. I understood that Derek Jeter owned a unit in this building and heard recently he is selling it. Perhaps this penthouse is/was his?

    That is may favorite one out of Trumps slim pickings. In fact its prob the best upper east side high-rise. Too bad he didnt keep building them like this.
