Interesting the way 7 WTC and Goldman created a new canyon.

True, and that's one of the good thing about the new WTC - the towers will join the city's canyons.

The glass looks fantastic. I'm still not a fan of the curves and angles amalgamation, but luckily there are few angles where their weird conflict is visible.

It is interesting that this building (especially the skin) resembles (at least one side) 71 S. Wacker in Chicago, which was also designed by Cobb and occupied by GS.

NYguy incredible colors in that skyline pic. Everytime we got to NYC, we always end up having lunch and coffee in the Worl Financial Marina/Plaza with the massive docked yachts! Cheers Everyone!

I think it's great from the western (hudson) side, not as much from the eastern side.

Perhaps. But I can tell you that when the sun sets, those towers are bathed in that Glow. Even the Jersey City Goldman tower glows like a beacon.

Does anyone know who will occupy the current GS HQ once their new HQ is ready to be moved in?
