The only reason why I can appreciate the height decrease is that it otherwise would've looked gaunt.

At least it didn’t lose supertall status. That would’ve been heartbreaking

This tower unlike 2 WTC, 432 Park, Nordstrom tower is progressive architecture that represents the best in architecture's modernization. Not just a regurgitation of the same old boring and frugal modernist/square shapes and façades that accountants love.

9 Dekalb is a contender for best facade moving forward. Based on renderings, I'm sure the final product will impress. From what we've seen with Steinway, that too.

i liked that more delicate, spidery view of the orginial version than this truncated version, now that was a real work of art, but it still is and is going to be mighty impressive, both from afar and from close up. best of all its totally putting the goth back in gotham (surprizingly, so is that black gehry on the east side).

Maybe it's just me, but this towers construction progress has been really quick in hindsight. The damn soft-cost stage though was ridiculous in length, but the actual good portion, where it rises, is making great speed. I was thinking given the complexity it would crawl like slow, dripping molasses, but such is not the case!

Lot of photographers in this town. Just wait until people really realize what this gem is.

Probably just concrete. They're already past that part, and there would be no point in building a glass facade just for it to be covered by a tower that's not getting torn down anytime soon.

It would appear similar to this model...

^re: MrNYC's observation;

I Think very much that the recently added gold/silver hues at the tower's peaks compensate for that loss.

Dunno about 8 Spruce Street but 685 First Avenue still under construction has black glass. Design is by Richard Meier.

Now seeing this gem rise.... I'm even more disappointed that it isn't the 1200+ foot height they were targeting for.
