How was this building rated?

This very handsome, 65-story, residential tower is a project of the World Wide Group and Rose Associates.

Skidmore, Owings & Merrill is the design architect and SLCE is the architect of record.

It has 268 apartments including 93 condominium units that start on the 36th floor and 175 rental units at its base.

The 715-foot-high tower it is distinguished by its scooped-out curves on each major façade.  These curves, furthermore, tilt slightly and widen as they rise and many have light blue glass balconies with rounded sides and railings adjacent to the scooped-out curves.

David Romualdez is the interior designer.

It was scheduled for completion in 2016.
