I find these tetris type buildings delightful; particularly when a high quality cladding system is being attached to the facade of the superstructure. They have achieved both here, the tetris form factor and quality cladding - however, the cladding is not quite as sublime as that similar type building now reaching completion on 14th street/6th Avenue.

I believe this particular style of Architecture is not only attractive, but creates exceptional ‘functional’ opportunities for deep set terraces, rooms floating in space, wrap-around corner windows, and interesting floor plans.

The modernist form also permits for those ‘oversized’ and floor-to-ceiling windows.

I will make a pilgrimage to see this building - I say pilgrimaged because I practically ‘worship’ these tetris type buildings which seem to be in vogue these days. :wink:
