has anyone been around the other side of this tower? I haven’t been downtown in awhile but looking at the WTC earthcam it looks like they did some facade work on the blank wall. Looks like they added some of those cross bracings and a sort of grid which makes it look more in line with the rest of the tower. Still concrete, though.
That’s the equivalent of the zebra stripe effort on Maiden Lane
It’s ok, at least when the other park row towers rise, it will hide this tower…
It should be largely obscured by 23 Park Row.
Now they’re installing the wall panels on the very top mechanical floors, and they’re not what I was expecting. I thought they were going to be the same perforated screen as the other mechanical floors, but apparently they’re some kind of translucent panels with a design printed on them. (Perhaps silkscreened glass?)
I see zero consistency with the rest of the building. I think this makes the building look even more chaotic. I don’t understand.
This tower I feel isn’t photogenic. In person, under the right lighting conditions and angle, looks somewhat okay from the ground, but for some reason, its not camera friendly.
I agree, Chris.
This building is heinous and taking forever to complete.
The construction elevator is coming down. If you look closely at the photo, you can see them lowering sections of elevator truss on top of one of the elevators.
This thing is just Hideous. Thank God it’s not on the water and can eventually be obscured by other, taller buildings.
