Nice unexpected hit of the year. Reminds me of KPF’s Bank of America in NYC.
The roofline + spire definitely gives off that impression from the north and south. Also getting Wilshire Grand Tower vibes at street level with some PingAn IFC + KL118 in the tower details.
That's not much of a spire—that's a cloaked aerial, and that's it really. If you're looking to have it as a spire, and it's an asymmetrical building, have it come out from the highest corner, not the middle. Meh so far.
The angles where the spire placement doesn’t sit with me are on the East/West elevations, where the tower appears wider and the roofline appears flatter... having a thin spire the middle looks weak. But if it’s built up more at the base, ala One Bryant, it could look more decorative and more integrated with the rest of the building.
That being said, I do think the spire gives this much more presence, which I don’t entirely mind given the other iconic office buildings in area - however, the spire is in such close proximity to the antennas found on FCP and CCW, that it could be irrelevant. Roof height will really make a difference here.
Also, naming rights could likely go to a lead tenant here. But unofficially, this would make more sense being referred to as Commerce Court East/South wouldn’t it?(rather than CC3)
