Building Reflections (51 Astor Place, Cooper Square)

This is the new glass and steel building rising at 51 Astor Place in Cooper Square, reflecting other buildings and clouds. Designed by Maki and Associates, this new 13-story class-A office and retail development features a black glass exterior with black granite and silver fins and boasts a distinctive angular design on each of its four sides. While some critics praised the architectural design, others think that it fails to "live up to Cooper Square's legacy of edgy design."
