    This is just great architecture. Although not that tall for New York standards, this tower will become very famous.

    I agree. It's still pretty tall though. I think it's around 830'.

    Skyscraper design studios at Pratt have already begun studying this building as precedent. (The course was actually taught by members of SOM)

    If the random person passing by on the street does not look way up to the top of this building; it could easily be mistaken for just another typical glass clad condo tower. This is one of those architectural marvels that must be viewed in it totality to be appreciated for what it is - something quite unique.

    I am still a bit disappointed with those exposed concrete floor slabs with that subtle concave curvature : it really does not ‘read’ much if your not looking for it closely. This will be best appreciated by those who know what they are looking at; and those who are truly looking. Lofter1 had an interesting observation on those exposed concrete slabs, which he found to be a very important (and noticeable) feature of the building - http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showth...l=1#post442172

    [If the random person passing by on the street does not look way up to the top of this building; it could easily be mistaken for just another typical glass clad condo tower.]
    NOT if they still intend to install a "Bean"at the bottom, making it look like the whole shebang is resting on it.
    Then anyone passing by should be impressed enough not to mistake it for another typical.
