The trend of constructing boxy glass buildings is a bore, but there is one building going up in Manhattan whose design is made more interesting by the way the glass is faceted like a gem. It is appropriate, since the building will eventually be the home of various jewelry retailers in the heart of the Diamond District.

Designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill, The International Gem Tower features angled glass panels that create a pattern of depth and reflection.

The new high rise will consolidate several jewelry businesses under one roof, and help revitalize the area with new jobs and commerce. Completion date is set for early 2013.
