Homely is putting it gently...they really haven't done much work in the last month:

Why are you guys hating on this building? Diller and Gehry together too rich for your blood? I will say one thing, though, as much as I like this building, it was built with the major help of some 9/11 bonds. I'm not sure how they made that happen.

Gehry's building at MIT looked horrible in process... but a really clever building emerged... patience, perhaps, is in order?

I'm not hating on the building (though I'm not exactly sure what that means). I just walked by it the other day and thought it was ugly. Whether a famous architect design it or not is irrelevant to me. Perhaps, as Matt says, once it is done it will look much better.

I think the building is the best looking new structure on West St. Compared to the ugly glass terrariums that have sprouted up nearby this is inspirational. I especially like the blue and white glass skin.

It is very different from the rendering and it looks like an ipod - just horrible. I really wish gehry and his team would learn how to construct a building.
