    Those east and west facades are terrible. The building would look so much better without the tacky pixelated pattern on those sides.

    I can't imagine what he was thinking.

    All I can think of is they were trying to go with a look mimicking falling water...
    either way- epic fail with that glass.

    I could see it working it it was WAY more subtle.

    It is supposed to mimic a waterfall, with the white foam on one side, and then the dark blue behind on the back. I don't think it's so bad, and I think it'll look better when the elevator is down. So many buildings look better once buttoned up.

    This tower has become so prominent from other places (look at it from riverside drive through the GWB arch), it's both hard to imagine what it was like without it and what it will be like with all the other towers coming soon.

    I am sick at the thought of the 1450' POS that Extell plans near 7th.

    The East-West silhouette looks great on the skyline.

    I know loving this building is somewhat passé, but every time I see it, especially from TWC, it feels like the Emerald City from the Wizard of Oz. I'm just filled with a sense of wonderment. I don't know if it'll be the same when the other towers rise.

    Why thank you. I'm sorry it's just from the iPhone. I'd love to take the same photo with my nicer camera.

    Tonight on the PBS show Super Skyscrapers, The Billionaire Building

    Upon completion, One57, on Manhattan’s 57th Street, will rise more than 1,000 feet, making it the tallest residential tower in the western hemisphere and boasting spectacular views of Central Park. “One57” follows the teams tasked with creating New York’s most luxurious residential skyscraper and their ambition to redefine luxury living the big city. Condominiums at One57 showcase state-of-the-art interiors — double-height ceilings, full-floor apartments, bathrooms clad in the finest Italian marble and the finest material finishes.
