Jean Nouvel's MoMA tower "out of scale"... in midtown??

A planned 75-story residential skyscraper connected to the Museum of Modern Art seems headed for a fight with area residents, who claim the Jean Nouvel-designed tower would be dramatically out of scale with the surrounding neighborhood.

FTW? Please don't screw this up. The good news is the Community Board 5 subcommittee which unanimously voted against the air rights transfers has no real say in the matter. The MoMA tower is a chance to make up for some of the massive lameness being built at Ground Zero.
