View from Lafayette Street

I am always fascinated by how tall buildings look from different places. This one will be quite a change of the skyline in this alley street.

The first plum trees are now starting to bloom here.

Amazing shot, Jerry! Somehow you managed to capture a building from 2019 and a pedestrian from 1979 in the same shot...

An ugly designed building and not tall enough. Just sad.

I like how the facade facing Market steadily and gracefully sets back as it reaches the top, giving it a nice slimming effect. The rounded corners are also a nice touch. I also like how the facade continues up past the roofline, giving a bit of a crown.

Agreed. I'm liking the peeled open look so far. Nice glass. And there's something about the window pattern that works, too.

Indeed. The window pattern creates a nice texture. It almost has a reptilian scale feel. Much more interesting than the typical monotonous window pane grid. Just a very well done project overall.

This is looking great and is helping pull the skyline west.
