These are massive on the LIC skyline. I just wish they were prettier.

^ yeah for sure. ironically they still make for an impressive entrance into lic from the 7 train. a very different one from the graffitied 5pointz warehouse to be sure, but still quite a sight in its own slickered up sterile way.

Agreed. While 5Pointz may not have been “attractive” in the conventional sense (by virtue of the fact that the graffiti-covered look just isn’t for everyone, lol), there was definitely a lot more going on there visually than there is with these towers. One thing I do like about them though is that they’re using a warm-colored stone/precast for the facade vs. the cool blue/green glass that a lot of other developments in LIC tend to go for. Having a variety of facade materials is extremely important in a neighborhood where a lot of development is happening at the same time, otherwise it all starts to look somewhat same-y and forbidding.
