It is a beautiful building...like a space ship landed in an old city...bringing something new and exciting. Watson is bringing something new and exciting...anticipation and expectation is keeping me waiting!

Maybe it fell from the sky
I'll be the first to admit I'm still stuck in a pre-Giuliani, retro-historical view of Manhattan, but that building, even in today's West Village, is an eyesore and about as contextually appropriate as a Catholic cathedral in a mini-mall. I'm thrilled the landlord is winning high-flying tenants... hurray for high occupancy rates! it's just a little ironic that so many other architects in NY's storied history have managed to solve the competing demands of esthetics and commerce.

Re: All key to the future of cities
That will be wonderful, Nicole. I think this move of IBM's -- and news of this building itself -- is progress worth tracking for sure.

All key to the future of cities
I would say that finding ways to revolutionize "healthcare, financial services, retail, travel and telecommunications" is absolutely essential to the future of cities, and I'm really eager to see what comes out of this lab. Hopefully we can get down there with our video crew once IBM has unpacked its boxes. :)
