I'm still not crazy about this one. Particularly from this angle. The proportions just look clunky and wrong.

I love pictures like that with gray skies. The Chrysler Building looks spectacular. One Vanderbilt will as well. I don't know if I've ever seen a rendering of any building with a cloudy sky...

every time i look at the renders i am reminded how they really did an impressive job with designing the base of this one. it looks functional, open and it presents itself well to the public in that busy, high profile setting.

as much as we tend to complain about the unresolved or unsatisfactory crown, lets give some major credit for the street level.

I really like how is gestures towards the station. The transparent glass really opens it up and makes the base into a more public space.

^ On that note, I really wish, instead of the orange-colored stone throughout the lobby, they use limestone or gray cladding of some kind to better compliment with Grand Central.

I don't know if this will have an observation deck anywhere, but either way, for anyone at the top of this tower, the views looking down onto the Chrysler Building will be spectacular.

It will have an observation deck 1,020 feet up.

Obsevation decks begin at 1,020 ft., and will be both indoor and outdoor. Perfect for an eye opening view of the Chrysler.

Beautiful view. This will be a stunning row of iconic buildings. Except the Grand Hyatt. That building is a dump (thanks Trump).
