I’ve always felt so/so about this building. It’s an overall handsome tower that is home to an excellent company, but the façade is not one that I admire in particular. The shaping of the tower isn’t bad and it in away ads some contrast. I like how it extends the skyline a few blocks and does it was an attractive and respectable height.

A redeeming quality of this building is the base. You have to see it in person to appreciate it as it is an amazing sight. It’s original, and to me it feels you’re in the middle of a large sculpture. The plaza is also inviting, and what is offered within the base adds some attraction, however I don’t think the tower overall gets as much credit as it deserves. I like think of the Bloomberg Tower as the Time Warner Center of the Eastside.
