To me this tower is the one that tries to be everything to everyone...deco pinstriping, punched corner windows in brown (to similuate some sort of masonry structure), staggered setbacks and little cornice lines, and topped by a giant birdcage. Roche is really a poor man's Phillip Johnson (with decidedly less interesting results).
I tried to be open-minded about the building until I saw it in person, but I have to say that is was the most underwhelming 1,000' tower I've seen (and I've seen ALOT of them).
I'll echo others here in that the night lighting is exceptional really makes the tower stand out.
Even if you are 1 in a million, there are still 7,000 people just like you...
