It is probably reflecting the Empire State Building on its glass!

Oh never mind, I just notice the shadow and only the peak of the ESB reflects. Still the building is looking great!

Can you spot in this 1932 pic the buildings that were replaced by the Setai?

I kinda wish this one was a little taller. Such a great design... and great complement to the ESB.

Maybe it's the concrete that reminds me of the ESB.

This is OT but that ^ pic shows just how far the Tower Verre would be from the ESB. It would be behind 30 Rock.

Heck, One Bryant Park has more of an effect (which is really minimal to begin with) on the ESB than the Tower Verre would simply because it's closer to the ESB.

Only this city's leaders would be stupid enough to not even know the city their running.

It's amazing...this building is actually quite beautiful. The windows look like crystal.

P.S. NYguy, the picture from andrey.ca, I could stare at it for hours. I truly could.

Get up to the Empire State and you could see it live...

I think this building looks better from above, or maybe it's just the view. Anyway, photographers at the Empire State seem to love it...

Those windows are absolutely gorgeous, and really make the building stand out.
