You can see quite a few of them if you look on the webcam and zoom into the bottom. Southwest side of the building.They are glass so kind of easy to miss. It looks like they got half way up and just stopped each railing halfway. Kind of odd. Are the railing unions on strike? Lol

Wow, it looks really great from this angle. The inevitably-goofy crown is going to detract a bit, but they have to enclose it somehow, I guess. It would be great if it could just terminate with the final unit, like it was sheared off.

Well if the crown is done right it could be a great looking building...but from the rendering it looked like they cheaped out on it...maybe we will be surprised and it will looks a little bit different...one could only hope!.

Every time I look at this building, I always think how much better it would look with another 100 ft. Still a great building, just feels like its rounded streamlined design needs to soar just a bit higher.

Agreed. The proportions between the bottom and tops tiers is off a bit. Either needed to make the top taller or the first tier lower.

^ I'd argue P/H has the same problem with the final result of One Museum Park. Needs to be taller or have a lower setback.

^ Agree. Looks too much like a flask of whisky from this angle

^ Now that you mention it, I think I like the design :yes: :cheers:

The crown will be pretty major on my final judgement for the building(and Pappageorge doesn't have the best track record with crowns), but this one turned out sleeker than I expected. Proportions still aren't perfect. Thinner portion should have been 5 floors taller, or thicker portion should be a few floors lower. Beyond that, solid building

It just looks like a shorter flatter-topped version of One Museum Park.

It takes a crane to take apart a crane
