Therefore the actual height should be 1342,5 feet (about 409m) and not 1366 feet (about 416m).....

Actually, the top four to six levels are 17 feet and 19 feet high - and a few inches. The levels from the bottom through the top mechanical and the beginning of the steel only top are 15 feet and some inches. See the structural plans posted on page 158.

I see, but I was only off by 3 feet. So this is currently 1,363 feet tall

Great shots! That's a serious zoom on your camera. What is the camera/ focal length?

mrnyc Jul 16, 2019 2:24 PM

It's a Nikon, 83X zoom. Those first shots were taken from a mile away.

Yeah, those guys have a lot of heart. I can't imagine just standing (and climbing) up there in the open, even with protection. But they get the skyline built.

I loved your series of pics.

This one intrigued me with its movement and beauty. I know the vertical elements are terra cotta, however I thought the others were plain glass. Now I see a beautiful scroll design! Those are panels of glass with a scroll design applied, right? What material is the scroll and how is it applied?

If it is possible, could you post a close-up of this side of the building showing its detail. I would really appreciate it!

I think the observation deck at 1VDB will be better than TOTR.

I said it a few years ago, and it's still true: the Park Lane Hotel in that view is the equivalent of someone dropping a deuce in a display case at Tiffany's.

Skinny 'Scrapers
 
By ROBERT L. REID

Rising high in the skies over New York City, Chicago, Hong Kong, and other great metropolises are tall towers that appear impossibly slender. Fueled mostly by market demand from wealthy clients who desire spectacular views, the design and construction of these superslim, generally residential skyscrapers also depend on engineering advances over recent decades in building materials and damping technologies as well as careful coordination by the design teams.

:haha: It needs to be torn down. There were plans to do so a few years back. I think it fell through.
