Let's hope they opt for better quality glass panels than they used for the Saya/One Madison Park. The mismatched black glass panels and crappy spandrel glass on the clear glass spans of the Saya almost ruin the tower, but it's saved by it's relatively simple massing. This tower won't have that saving grace as it's massing is all over the place, and the different colored windows on the east face could end up looking very cheap if the same quality of glass is used here.

So almost purely on quality of materials, this could be a stunning tower or an eyesore. I'm hoping Barnett opts for quality.
