    If a building rises in Manhattan, will anyone notice?

    I remember watching this building develope with excitement, from demolition to construction. But it was a little disappointing when completed.

    Isn't it PricewaterhouseCoopers Center now?

    It's an ok building, the skin gives different impressions depending on where it's viewed from.

    It's ok. I actually like it better in person than in pic. Don't like the street level though...not open and lively.

    35 floors, 535 feet. That's way too inadequate. That building needs to double its height and floors if its owners (namely PriceWaterhouse Coopers) want any distinction for their headquarters.
