    Water and plants (soothing and calming elements) are the most logical to use in sterile, modern lobbies.

    A fire grill is not. That belongs in a kitchen (and only if you want to cook up a steak).

    By the way, will they just rent out that retail space already (hopefully not to a bank). That whole block is just depressingly bleak.

    Yeah, 46th and Eighth is a LOVELY intersection, with the scraped + fenced empty lot to the SE and the scaffolded + boarded up old dowager to the NW .

    It used to have some real character.

    Not a bad looking tower.

    Better than the towers on 6th ave, but the location still feels a little up and coming. It's very dark on 8th avenue. I think how bright TS is makes it feel even more so. I don't generally like walking over there at night north of 44th until I get to 57th St.

    I am not sure if the 'wall of fire' is still in the lobby; the last time I looked the whole fire feature was being either repaired or being removed. The apartment interiors have now been occupied for some time now so there are plenty of on-line videos available for a 'look inside'. Large windows everywhere: plenty of blackout shades will definitely be needed in this place.
