Yes! No. Crane. At. All. And they’re filling in the north side.

I was just gonna ask... are there going to be any balconies at all on the north side or will all those gaps be filled in with glass? I seem to remember they will be...

The renderings of the back of 111 W 57th shows that the building would have the gap filled in. It doesn’t say that the balconies will be used for entertainment purposes or something like that.

I think the windows will be flush from top to bottom, with the tops of the windows on each floor slightly curved a couple inches as part of the design :yes:

This pic from bpc @ NYY should show it a bit better :)

From that picture I’d say Skyguy’s description is more accurate. But it is a rather subtle effect.

^ Wicked photos as always!! This tower has come such a long way from renders I saw here years ago!! I'll be back in NY on Friday, so it'll be great seeing this nearly finished!

Looking at those close-up shots, seems there'll be quite a bit of cleaning to do!! Bit OT, but what sort of camera/lens did you use for all these? I wanna check out The Edge and Top of the Rock this time around and capture photos like these around sunset :worship:

Yeah, the glass is extremely dirty, and it looks like some type of covering on the inside. (Or maybe outside, I don’t know). The Top of the Rock is always great, it’s in the middle of everything, and will only become increasingly so. They’ve started charging an extra ten bucks for “sunset” hours (6-8). Even if the sky is overcast. The camera is a Nikkon P900, though I’m more comfortable just taking a phone shot.

faaaantastic to see the crown up close -- gracias.

so is the north face cladding up there at the top louvers that can be opened and closed? looks like it?? or maybe they are locked in that open V position??? anyone know?

Don't know. I always thought it was designed to be that way.

111 W 57th looks fabulous but not selling as well as they hoped.
 
From: https://www.bisnow.com/new-york/news...57th-st-109294

"The coronavirus pandemic iced the city’s luxury residential market for months on end. But the developers of one of Billionaire's Row's latest offerings say the market is beginning to thaw, though it is still a race to get the years-overdue building totally complete...Even before the crisis, the building had fended off foreclosure proceedings, had been hit with lawsuits and rose out of the ground as luxury inventory ballooned....The final stretch of the 1,428-foot-tall building has been hampered by the fact that hundreds of workers heading up and down the slender building must rely on just two elevators... The building reached 15% sold, making it an effective condominium, in February 2020, according to a spokesperson for the project. It has seen significant buyer activity in recent months, Maloney said, though he declined to share how many deals have been signed...The plan is now to finish the building on each floor as it sells... Certainly, Maloney’s expectations of a “modest profit” are a far cry from the luxury market’s peak of 2015, when buyers would buy uber-luxury off the plan. Right now, it would take seven years to sell all the new development condos in Manhattan, per data from appraisal firm Miller Samuel, which analyzes active and shadow inventory in the market. That number is down from a 2020 peak of 8.7 years...She said there has been “some give” in prices in the past eight weeks, and on average prices had to be lowered by 8% before buyers would begin negotiating. While the prices are down from the luxury market’s peak, she said, the sales velocity is back at the same levels of that era. Confidence from the vaccine rollout is the driving factor, and she noted demand is coming from largely domestic buyers...The building has 60 units and reaches 82 stories, according to StreetEasy..."
