I remember stumbling upon that thread a few years ago. The consensus was that an airliner would bounce off somehow, and that the carnage would be mostly in the plaza & streets below.

Of course, industry professionals or not, few knew the tower's perimeter columns were only connected together by four bolts at that height, and equally few truthers seem to accept it today. All the plane has to do, was defeat those bolts...

Is Airliners.net no longer used by pilots? Last time I was on there was the hundreds of pages discussing the Malaysian 772 that went missing.

It still has some but it is a shell of its former self. In the 2000's it was the go to place to discuss Aviation. But in 07 it was bought out by a company, one of the things they did was make it free again. For a wile the forms had a small fee to make an account just to keep the discussion quality as high as possible. This as well as a bunch of other factors caused the forums to decline to where they are no longer the best forum. r/flying has a lot of high quality discussion, and APC which to be fair was fairly active before airlines.net decline. But is grown a lot since then but it is VARY toxic.

And do you have a link to the info about the WTC bolts? I have not heard that before and that is interesting.

is the crown essentially finished? it doesn't look so elegant with all the cross bracing showing through, although I suppose it provides a certain high-tech touch... still looks like there are some pieces missing....

Back on topic, I'm really looking forward to seeing the lighting on this building.

Luxury real estate boom in NYC: Manhattan sees its busiest week for sales of high-end homes in FIVE YEARS


By Megan Sheets
21:40 15 Feb 2021


Quote:

Manhattan's luxury real estate market recorded its busiest week in over five years last week as 38 properties with asking prices exceeding $4million found buyers.

The unseasonably high tally from the week ended Sunday, February 14, was revealed in a report from Olshan Realty, which called it 'a spectacular number by any standard'.

... Together the 38 deals totaled $351.5million, the highest weekly sum since December 2017, Olshan said.

The report shows a stunning rebound for Manhattan's luxury real estate market, which took a nosedive last spring when the coronavirus pandemic forced the city into lockdown and affluent residents began fleeing to the suburbs and beyond.
Quote:

The most expensive home was a penthouse at The Tower at Gramercy Square at 215 East 19th Street that had an asking price of $29.5million.

The unit features five bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms across 6,989 square feet, plus a 5,680-square-foot terrace that wraps around the unit.

The second-most expensive home to secure a buyer last week was a Walker Tower duplex at 212 West 18th St in Chelsea with an asking price of $27.8million.
Quote:

Strong showings in the luxury sector are part of a broader trend in New York City real estate, according to various recent reports.

One report from Corcoran Group showed that Manhattan apartment sales surged to a seven-year high in January 2021 with 900 contracts signed, up 28 percent from January 2020.

Corcoran CEO Pam Liebman said the latest figures are proof that New York City will return to pre-pandemic glory.

'New York has not lost its luster as the capital of the world. It's gotten beat up with COVID, but it's not going away,' Lieberman told the New York Post.

'As soon as Manhattan gets dressed up again and at full speed, I think it's going to soar.'

First post on this forum so just getting used to it... Anyway I believe I read here a while ago a couple posts about the crown lighting and if it will have what’s in the render. I found an article by the lighting company L’Observatoire International who teamed up with Sh0p and it appears they will do the crown lighting strands. The broad glass sides will have vertical strands of lights hanging in front of the steel X braces, these will sparkle which is super cool. The tarra-cotta will be lit to match the twist of the blocks. Not sure if the terracotta lighting will be moving or stationary but it will change with the moon cycle. As for renders the lighting will appear to be white and luckily not multicoloured like the Empire State suffers from now. It will be cool to see this whole tower lit in such a tasteful way.

L’Observatoire International written article, undated and no author mentioned, titled “111 West 57TH Street”

Yeah, that's the one we've been going with, in regards to the lighting. But until they finish up that crown, we'll just have to wait and see.

Manhattan’s Luxury Market Continues Miraculous Rebound
Deals for homes asking $4 million and up soared to 2015 levels in February



BY BECKIE STRUM
MARCH 1, 2021


Quote:

The Manhattan luxury housing market has notched the strongest week since the robust days of mid-2016, new data shows.

Forty homes asking $4 million or more went into contract in the week ending Sunday, the most recorded since a seven-day stretch in August 2016, when 43 such deals were struck, according to a weekly roundup from Olshan Realty on Monday. It marks the fourth week in a row that Manhattan has logged 30 or more luxury deals and signals a marked turnaround from the depths of the pandemic-fueled slowdown.

For context,144 homes asking $4 million or more have gone into contract during the past four weeks, totaling $1.18 billion in pending sales.
Quote:

It was a “luxury-market wave not seen since a similar streak in 2015,” wrote Donna Olshan, president of Olshan Realty in the report.

The most expensive unit to find a buyer last week was an apartment in Chelsea asking $25.995 million. It’s been a long road to find a buyer for the three-bedroom home—a combination of two apartments—which has been on and off the market since 2017 and once had a $40 million price tag.

The home is in a 19-story condominium designed by renowned firm Foster + Partners and comes with access to the building’s fitness center, concierge and children’s playroom.

The second-priciest deal was for a massive double spread at the Time Warner Center in Midtown, which was asking $25 million. NFL quarterback Tom Brady previously owned one half of the combo unit before selling it to the current owner in 2011 for $17.5 million. The owner then snapped up a neighboring apartment a few years later for $18 million and combined the two, according to the report from Olshan.
Quote:

Manhattan’s housing rebound extended beyond the luxury market in February, according to data from Garrett Derderian, director of market intelligence at Serhant. At all price points, it was the strongest February for signed contracts since at least 2008, when Serhant began tracking the data.

There have been 2,472 contracts signed since the beginning of the year, a level not recorded since the same period in 2015, Mr. Derderian said in a market note.
