I love this tower, but at this point only one thing matters to me. That single dark tile of glass on the top of the north face. Why is it there? Was it a mistake? Is to going to be corrected? If it was not a mistake, then what is the rationale for one dark tile? If there were several then I could understand the concept of wraping the pixalation around the edge a bit, I would not like it, but I would understand.

Seriously, someone help. This is like a splinter in my brain... driving me mad.

Probably a missed piece they didn't get to work on yet (little black spots on the facade). No need to go into a deep psychedelic state of questioning about the rationality of the lone dark piece. The top square looks like it might be a contruction piece or some sort of assembly device.

There are many panes of glass throughout the facade that are still missing, so I would simply suggest patience, my friend.

We have our own problems here in Chicago, but I'm confident that they will also be fixed in time..

I was just going to say something like that. The entry is the near perfect. It is hard to imagine a more elegant solution.

Business Insider took a stroll around the new Park Hyatt Hotel inside One 57, here are some of the interior shots. More in depth shots and details you can find at the link.

Step Inside The Swankiest New Hotel In New York City

Business Insider
Melia Robinson
04 September 2014

Earlier this month, the luxury hotel chain Park Hyatt opened its flagship New York location, Park Hyatt New York.

Housed inside the near-complete condo One57 on 57th Street, Park Hyatt is 25 floors of sheer elegance and opulence.

Rumor has it Park Hyatt New York could become the first new five-star hotel in New York in more than 11 years. The rating is determined by the venerable Forbes Travel Guide, which will send an inspector (and a second anonymous inspector) to review the hotel in the next six months.

New York currently has eight 5-star hotels, the 11-year-old Mandarin Oriental being the most recently anointed. Should Park Hyatt qualify for the Forbes Travel Guide's top rating, it has to go above and beyond, providing "room amenities including fresh flowers and wine by the glass presented in the bottle and poured by room-service staff."

As much as I'm sure the hotel is going to be great, all the stone inside is a little over the top. Doesn't quite give you that warm and welcoming feel.

It's very nice. Will it be the nicest on 57th? Maybe not.

Not a fan of this tower. Nothing to do with its proximity to Central Park. And I like its shape. But imo the checkered pattern of dark and light blue tiles, gives the facade a cluttered and garish impression. Especially at the top where it gets darker for some reason. It messes with my OCD. I think it would be a pretty good tower if the glass was all consistent, or at least if the contrast between the tiles wasn't so stark.

I don't expect people to agree with me, but just stating my opinion. Hopefully I'll warm to it eventually.
