The base notwithstanding, this building came out better than I imagined it would.

That pretty much sums up my opinion of this building too.

The tower's nice, no doubt, but it does not make up for the monstrosity that is the base.

Do you know the exact height restrictions for this area? I would assume anything below 400 feet is allowed.

The base is indeed a bad one, but I do find the tower slightly interesting in that they've managed to make it look so bulky. In that last photo by Tecttonic the base looks unfinished but the tower gives me a sense of being way bulkier and bigger than it actually is at 94m.

Somehow the podium does the trick even better than the tower part it's self, that ramdom-pattern brown stone really catches the eyes....

Just realized yesterday that they're opening a "Shake Shack" here.

Burger lovers rejoice! Minichain Shake Shack opens in Times Square



By Sam Levin
July 12th 2010

Quote:
Burger lovers are salivating over Monday's grand opening of the Shake Shack in Times Square.

The latest patty-flipping outpost of veteran New York restaurateur Danny Meyer's minichain will begin serving up its famed Shakeburger at W. 44th St. and Eighth Ave.

"I'm stoked about it," said Broadway actress Lindsay Mendez, 27. "It's nice to have places other than porn shops. We're so excited about it."

The string of burger joints that Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group first launched in 2004 in Madison Square Park is also known for its hot dogs, fries, frozen custard - and long lines.

I'm sorry
That is a hideous building
Tower and base
Adds nothing. They should cover it with neon signage

Closing remarks?

I like the corner view, but the face-on view is pretty bland.

I dig the materials, especially the white and brown panels, but the execution is just awful. To bland and blocky.
