As with every building with a reasonably simple shape, it is all about the materials. If they use top notch glass and stone, it will be gorgeous. The good news is, Maki doesn't seem like an architect who would be down with pre-cast concrete and plexiglass.

Right as always pico. My only regret is that the lowrise portion and plaza aren't on the Astor Square side of the building. It's too bad the highrise wedge has to cover up the masonry gem on Layfayette rather than all the ugliness on 3rd Avenue
