You'd think there'd be room for creating something striking in this market for the '3rd' dwntwn of manhattan. Blehk....
This is modern NYC architecture. The building is a poster child for a new breed of buildings (green). It's tall, innovative, and beneficial to the enviroment. Plus its a supertall without a spire.

IMO, it's just what the doctor ordered.
