I love this building. Looks like something the ancient Greeks would have built, had they come up with high-rises.

Mycenaean, Minoan and other proto-Greek Mediterranean cultures are famous for pioneering the use of corbel arches - they're often credited with inventing the 'true arch'.

I don't know, I am not a historical archivist. Simply the first idea that came to my mind to describe the vibe I felt.

^^^ But yes, mostly due to the archs, which as the friendly user above me has described, they pioneered.

DDG’s Gaudi-Inspired 180 East 88th Street Gets Its Curtain Wall On The Upper East Side



Quote:
The exterior curtain wall at 180 East 88th Street is making substantial progress as it swiftly encloses the 31-story reinforced concrete structure. The tower is now the tallest skyscraper on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street, with design by DDG. HTO Architects is serving as the architect of record, and Petersen Tegl, a Denmark-based firm, is in charge of the Kolumba masonry brick facade. The property will yield around 130,000 square feet of residential space when complete, averaging over 2,700 square feet per unit. There will be 52,000 square feet of communal facilities on the lower floors, and the remaining 1,100 square feet will be dedicated to commercial use.

Recent photos from Tectonic show the tower’s exterior and the masonry bricks wrapping between the windows and double-height arches.

[...]

The building’s envelope is adorned with the large, open-air arches that draw inspiration from the Spanish architecture of Antoni Gaudi. Views of Midtown and Billionaire’s Row are easily seen from the upper floors, along with views of Central Park and the sunsets behind the Manhattan skyline.

Amenities for 180 East 88th Street will include a partial basketball court, an indoor soccer pitch, a children’s playroom, a fitness center, residential lounges, and tenant wine storage.

180 East 88th Street is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.

Every other building in the shot has the same roof tower. It's part of a skyscraper. Not a big deal.

Some towers do a better job of masking it than others. If you look at the UES, a lot of towers have water towers at the top, but various architectural elements help to mask it or make it seem like its not even there, but this will vary depending on the tower. Some are obvious, others aren't.

This simple tower is elegant and eye-pleasing. Not sure why though, maybe it's because it's not a dull, cold glass facade? I guess any new development that dares to use earthy materials instantly becomes attractive to my tired eyes. By tired I mean tired of seeing glass facades ruining street walls. Also, arches need to be used more. They are doing wonders to add interest to the facade (ala 130 Williams)
