It almost finally ready. After a controversial few years, The Cooper Square Hotel looks like it is just days or weeks from entertaining guests. While architect Carlos Zapata's design has both been widely criticized and applauded, I fall into the later category. While it is out of keeping with the surrounding community, this area is clearly changing and becoming far more modern. As modern design goes, I can appreciate the Burj-Dubai-like structure, the cantilever, and the overall feel. It is both clean and interesting.
