wow ! Brooklyn's 2nd tallest is gonna be really tall ! . .
and it is a very nice one . . I'm not usually a fan of flattops . .
especially for the tallest peaks . . but it works fine on this one . .
(like with the old Twins, and Trump World Tower at (UN),
the UN Secretariat, Saarinen's CBS, and some others . . ) . .
the non-bulky proportions of the taller 80 Flatbush, . .
with that great angled midsection, . . and the punched individual windows,
which make the tower seem so traditionally "big-city" monumental . .
(like 30 Rock, 200 CPS, the PanAm/MetLife, etc) . .
But if the building gets value engineered like 2 & 3WTC, 3MW, CPT, . .
if the angle disappears, & individual windows give way to uniform curtain-wall glass . .
it'll be just more standard-issue intentional-negligence . .
but so far, in that dusky rendering, it looks pretty sexy . .
