^^ Great photo set. I still can't believe horseface Gail and her cronies all came to the consensus that "shadows in the park" would be their best strategy to "resist" the construction of these towers. :haha:

A few observations. I remember when One57 was going up and it stood out for its height.
Now it is almost an afterthought (height-wise). Central Park Tower may be taller but it is so clear that 111 W 57th is architecturally/design superior. Lastly, it'll be wild to see how far out the tower crane is outriggered once this reaches topping out phases.

Yes, I remember the crane dangling after hurricane Sandy. It was so high, and gave more gripes to the NIMBY crowd.

It worked for them in the 80's, but when developers build within existing zoning, all they can do is scream.

Once this building is topped off and every panel is placed, we'll finally see this beauty lit up with its terra-cotta for the first time ever! There'll be like a collective gasp across the planet once this one glows all sorts of different shades! This, CPT, and the rest of Billionaire's Row, will look REALLY cool at night with Hudson Yards, 53W53, and One Vanderbilt not far from view! The next decade looks PRETTY cool for NY! :cheers:

Based off the blueprint. We are at floor 79. 1,055 feet. Only 5 residential floors remain to be constructed along with 4 mechanical floors and a windbreak above that. The rest is all cap. This will reach floor 89 by the end of the year with core completion.

It's a splendid tower, there's no question about the design itself.

However, they also claim the building would host only some 60 units. :sly:
That's insane. The worst is the tower might sit mostly empty most of the time, eventually.
Foreign billionaires purchasing that kind of real estate take it as speculative goods, and hardly ever set foot in there.
Same phenomenon as that of large urban mansions here in Paris, that's quite controversial.



I don’t think this will be the case. If you’re in the park in the evening you notice that there are are lots of lights on at 432 Park Avenue and One57. People do actually live in these buildings and there are quite a few apartments so a constant rotation of foreign buyers coming in and out of town. It is New York after all, the most important city to the world’s super rich which has the world’s highest volume of private flights coming in and out of town. They’re always here.

I have never dreamed about a skyscraper before but last night I dreamed that they decided not to install 111's tuned mass damper in order to save money. Then the city got hit by a hurricane and the tower collapsed leading to a complete ban on new skyscraper construction in New York of towers over 20 floors. I woke up panicked. :koko:

Skyguy_7 Oct 26, 2018 12:16 PM

^ That is not a dream.

That is a nightmare. :runaway:
