Well, I remember there was some concern about the street wall and the way the tower is set back. But I really think it works in this case. It's really only set back on this side (the 57th St side will have storefronts). But its still a very dense neighborhood and the pieces seem to work. If you look at a lot of the other towers going up in Manhattan, there is no
space between the buildings.
Just look at the density here....( May 17, 2013 )
