    I thought they were plywood. Anyone know for sure?

    It's plywood. Try walking by the building and taking a look at it.

    Toll Brothers Posts 85% Drop in Net
    On Writedowns, Slower Construction

    Wall Street Jounal
    By Jonathan Vuocolo and Elana Beiser
    August 22, 2007

    Toll Brothers Inc.'s fiscal third-quarter net fell 85% as the luxury-home builder recorded more land writedowns amid continued slowing in new home construction.

    Chairman and Chief Executive Robert Toll said in a statement that the builder had experienced "a much higher rate of cancellations than at any time in our 21-year history as a public company" due to the downturn in the housing market.

    For the quarter ended July 31, the Huntingdon Valley, Pa., firm posted net income of $26.5 million, or 16 cents a share, compared with $174.6 million, or $1.07 a share, a year earlier ...

    Default Hit or miss?

    I'd give the building a 6.5.

















    The facade I'd give a 7.5.

    I give it a 2.2 ...

    although a 9.5 earthquke would take of it to my satisfaction

    It just looks like a jumble of confusion ...

    Balconies here, cantilever there, offset windows all around.

    And way too much glass revealing everyone's mess inside.

    Yuck.

    Wrong building for that lot. Wrong building for this city. I had high hopes for it, but it just never materialized as intended.

    I can't decide if I think this building reminds me of a cheap designed public school building , or a cheap designed hotel. At a second glance it reminds me of a hospital. In any case, I think its hideous and I'd rather see an empty lot, or a one story retail with a .99 cents store, rather than this eyesore.

    It's an awful building and bears no resemblance to the renderings. Not even close.

    It's almost comical how far off the mark they were. Almost --- since we actually have to live with this thing for a long, long time

    This looks like something that would have been built in the seventies (color scheme) by an institution (cost cutting).

    I think that so many developers rushed to build, and then construction prices rose so quickly (duh) because so many builders wanted quick completion. Compromises were made, and not for the good. I fear that many opportunities for good architecture will be lost in this speculative frenzy. What a shame.

    Argh, this one makes the walkup tenements look good.

    This indeed looks like some cheap public school design, perhaps one built in a poverty stricken area.

    Those walk-up tenements DO look good. New York.... it's called New York.

    Arg! indeed.
