Still a glorious design, one of the top two or three going up in the city right now. It's still my favorite, although there are some challengers (Steinway, Flatbush).



Thanks NY Guy, where I was heading with my comment was that the diagonal aluminum cladding rather than being on the same plane as the glass, could have looked slightly bolder if offset outward say 8" or so to create depth. This can be done easily with curtainwall regardless of the structure behind. However, it still remains awesome in my book. Onward and upward.

I know what you meant. That's why I gave the explanation of the change.

I like it smooth anyway. It lends an ethereal quality for what could've been an awkward cladding had they done it al a Hancock @Chicago.

In fact, in addition to this being what I originally dubbed One57's Goth twin sister, I now christen it Hancock at an Exhibition.
