    I wish more developers would build towers of this calibre. It is magnificent.

    While the shape came out pretty much as advertised, I am disappointed by both the color and the very reflectiveness of the glass.

    It appears that the Toll Bros. decided on the glass that was not originally envisioned by Portzamparc.

    I can never figure out if you live (or work) in NY. I assume that you don't. Regardless, I think that the glass looks spectacular in person.

    What's your point? You think I've never seen it in person?

    FYI, the glass looks in person just like it does in the pics. Reflective and a blueish/silverish tint.

    You don't need to get defensive. Clearly, you're not from here.

    Why is it clear that I'm not from "here?"

    BTW, I'm not the one being defensive. I stated my opinion of the glass. Clearly you didn't like that.

    LL spent YEARS pretending he lived 'here'.

    I lived in Manhattan for many years and have worked in the city virtually my entire life.

    Except for you, who cares?

    Listen, dude. I get the impression that you're some sort of Carson Cressley drama queen. I ignore "guys" like that -- not that there's anything wrong with that.

    So good luck!

    @LL: I'm tired of getting complaints. Any further insults regarding sexual orientation, and you'll spend some time off this forum. It's cowardly to hide behind a Seinfeld joke; there is something wrong with that.

    Now that the dust has settled above. The glass on this tower is quite reflective. I think a flatter finish would have looked better but I just appreciate the fact that they built this design. We could have ended up with another simple glass box.

    I probably am on my own around here but I don't like this. To pointless and all over the place. The bizarre skinny protrusion is one of the weirdest architectural elements I have ever seen. And, oh yes, it is all blue glass.

    Cheers, mate!

    You must see it in person. It looks amazing.
