I can almost feel it passing both 220 and One57...interesting how One57 is looking smaller and smaller.

I do wish they would be just a tad above a little bit more expeditious with the façade........

It does look like they added more glass on the West side, I see 14 floors now instead of the 11 floors which it had been at for a long time...

I'd imagine as investment properties, some of the owners of units in One57 will seek to buy some next door. One57 started it all folks! The godfather of the 57th Street revolution.

We can say we watched this era of skyscrapers, from birth, into full bloom. I remember watching One57 go up, and never imagining the rate of supertalls that we've been blessed with. Cheers to our Mommy One57!:cheers:

It's strange how the facade (with the thick metal panels between floors) emphasizes the horizontal rather than the vertical. Most skyscraper facades want to express verticality. I guess when you have the actual height it's not as important.

Not a big fan of the blue windows.

You can't see the windows yet, as they're covered.

Only in NY...

A 900’ Tower with 656’ left to go!!

It’s the Capital of the World!

656' is somewhere around the plateau (typical) of Midtown.

For reference... 656' , minus 1', is equivalent to a "One Wall Street" rising.

We tend to forget the impact that 656' has given the surroundings, but in many cities, that is a new tallest. If you place 656' out in a field, you'd be like damn... its big.

Now, the only in NY thing could also be said for the fact that 800' towers go unnoticed. That itself is scary, yet a testament to the boom and the magnitude of its skyscraper collection, spanning 3 centuries!

Whats exiting is we are on our way to being the global city with the most super talls. Where not there yet, but catching up. If all goes well, the #1 spot is in reach. 2# is not acceptable!
