Ironworkers building the crown of @111west57st, silhouetted against the sky. Amazing shot, @amwcameras.

Is the top steel we see facing the park there the final height?

Can't wait to see how the lighting turns out.


The lighting evokes jewelry at the crown and shimmer down the cladding of this very feminine and graceful tower.
Dynamic changes to the lighting are linked to the lunar cycle and visually connect the crown to the ground level.

L’O scope includes the façade lighting for both the new tower and Steinway Hall, all terraces, performance spaces in Steinway Hall,
amenities areas as well as millwork in the residential units.

I was kinda expecting this to be done already. The crown that is. Taking quite a while, but I know some of the delay was trying to get approval for the final beams.

Haven't you seen what I posted on Yimby Forums? They have jumped the crane and beams are up to 1,428. I think they only have the south frame of the top to finish

In the sense that I was expecting the time table to be shorter on this tower in regards to fully topping off. Like for example, I thought this would top out before 1 Vandy given its size.

But a portion of it was due to the approval for the final beams.

Wait so it’s NOT the tallest building in the world known only by its address?
