It's so awkward. Incongruous dark mechanical bands on one side, clumsy massing, the blunt top.

I think I've said it before but it makes 432 Park look well thought out in comparison.

I just can't bring myself to like this one. It's just awkward in massing, and isn't really a good fit for the skyline. It does have a nice facade though, and the crown lighting should be visible on the skyline.

Oof. I don’t see how anyone could think it’s worse than the lazy design of 432. They’ve at least made attempts to provide visual interest and a proper crown here. Is the result as stellar as 111? No, but it’s a perfectly fine building nonetheless.

432's beauty is in its simplicity. This one is clunky.

They're both awful and horrendous examples of "massing architecture" basically just made it as tall and cheap as possible under allowable mass.

Considering their deleterious effects on the NYC skyline and how bad they look hopefully developers with some semblance of self-dignity would not want to have something so prominently ugly attached to their legacies, despite the favorable profit margins.

The Jokers whom enabled these 2 atrocious conspicuous behemoths obviously did not mind their legacies tarnished. Sheesh!

CPT desperately needs a spire.

I mean, it's fine, as a background building, but as the current tallest in Midtown, it screams for a spire.
