Now that things are opening up again and my photography business starts taking off, I may be back in NY once again as soon as next month!! :cool:

Seeing CPT and 111W57 from The Edge at night were spectacular, but I know what awaits soon with them both being lit up! Crossing fingers they both illuminate the skyline in the coming days! I feel it's almost time!! :notacrook:

For now, daytime shots will have to do (especially now that the blue film is basically gone at this point) to really show things off, but maaan... can't wait for these towers to be finished :D

^ The skyline will be "electric" when everything is lit.

There are 98 above-ground stories and three basement stories. Why then is the top story numbered 136? It is misleading to state there are 136 stories when there are much fewer levels.

They do it with almost all tall residential buildings for marketing and superstitious purposes (for instance the 4th or 13th floor is skipped or the mechanical floors sometimes count as multiple floors).

I’m with you. This is kind of BS.

I thought there was some major height increase but the thread title is just the marketing scheme. This should be banned on SSP. Report the real number of floors and not what is marketed.

I agree that it's BS but it sort of makes sense from a marketing standpoint. Your average person does not understand that floor count doesn't equal height so they have to compensate. Your average person would have trouble understanding why you're standing on the 98th floor and looking down on the Empire State which is 102 floors.

SSP is inconsistent in its diagrams with this as well, 3WTC is listed with its real floor count and 4WTC with its fake one for example.

But we’re not the average person here on SSP. We know that floor to ceiling heights can be different. We’re literally a bunch of skyscraper nerds where details like this matter. Save the fake floor counts for the Realtors selling these condos. We should be posting the accurate floor count and not the Realtor marketing.

How this isn’t already a rule here on SSP, I don’t know.

The Empire State doesn’t have 103 floors either. Shocker.

But if you didn’t already know, when you go to all of those towers with the higher floor counts, the elevators respond accordingly. So, if you have to go to a specific floor, that’s what floor you go to. Even nerds know that.

C. Aug 2, 2021 7:19 AM

^and with that response, I concede this discussion is over. 98 floors or 131 floors. It doesn’t matter. Realtors should just call this America’s first 150 floor building given the height.
