Images taken today. First three of Nordstrom’s facade on 57th together with the tower.

Here’s the nice infill portion on Broadway.


#1075

Is it just me or does that base facade look like a giant dirty piece of corrugated plastic like what I used to make the roof of my garden shed ?

No bueno


#1076

I find it ugly as well. Maybe lighting will rescue it a bit. The infill building on Broadway is delightful.


#1077

It currently doesn’t look great, but it’s still got a hazy protective film on, doesn’t it? I’d wait to see it all removed and the windows washed before passing judgment.

:crossed_fingers:


#1080

It does remind one of that material, and that’s an unfortunate association for a lot of people.

But otherwise I think it will look great. I love curved glass. With no film, cleaned, and good lighting, it should look nice.


#1081

The glass without the film looks sleek and slick imo, Just like in the renderings.

interesting. I don’t remember there being any fins/cladding protrusions like that.

#1088

Always hard to judge from pictures. Does this feel tall in person now?


#1089

Thats what I always wanna know. Yes. It does feel tall, but luckily It will feel insanely tall soon enough
