It is indeed a beautiful piece of architecture, but frankly it took way too long. This building should be open right now, filled with shops and businesses and teeming with people. The fact that it's still under construction is a disgrace.
While it is a beautiful piece of architecture, it's also a beautiful piece of engineering. Lets not forget the fine men and women working behind the scenes to make this thing a reality. Mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and structural engineers make this architectural idea work.
I work at 3 WFC right next door & have a great view of it from our conference room...
Paulie is right, it took way too long- The Raccoon Lodge used to be packed at lunchtime with construction workers getting hammered- the NY Post blew the lid off that party & now there are NYC inspectors checking out all the bars during the day..
The concrete contractor who built the job is one of my clients (collavino)...he brought me up to 104. Pretty amazing walking on the steps with only a netting between you and death lol. I have some pics that I will upload later.
