The Journal uses an article about starchitects taking on residential projects to lob some criticisms at One57. Such as: "A sculptural tower would work in this setting but, like a spoiled kid, One57 wants to be the center of everything. It focuses heavily on exterior texture, and in doing so creates for itself its own, self-contained rhythm; a smooth, watery groove that, when completed, will override the rhythm of the block?What is otherwise an elegant sculptural structure will take on a kind of whimsical tone at street level that hogs too much of the air on 57th."
