New development blogger Triple Mint gets drunk on the photos of 40 Mercer, the new Jean Nouvel/André Balasz lux tower, and professes his love.
There is a lot to like here.

Certainly this raises the bar for developers who claim to want good architecture. It calls their bluff.· Jean Nouvel in Detail [Triple Mint]
