This thing is certainly on the move! It's going to top out before Nordstrom, for sure.

^ That'll be good. It will get the title of tallest to the roof in NY at least for a little while.

Given the pace Nordstrom's been rising, it'll probably end up being 5 years! haha

Looks great, but it seems like the pieces could line up a little better.

I think that's deliberate on SHoP's part, part of their design...

The façade is designed to read at multiple scales and vantage points; the shaping of the Terra Cotta that clads the east and west façades creates a sweeping play on shadow and light from the city scale, as the texture provides richness up close.

Could help to break up the wind load too.

Things get hot and expand when exposed to direct sunlight, so many architectural features exhibit expansion joints to minimize cracking stress.

Whatever the case, it's still a damn sexy building.

^^^^

Aaronaa4,

Your videos aren't showing. You posted one with Hudson Yards that didn't work in the compilation

Use this templete and it will work

YOUTUBE xxxx [/YOUTUBE]

Where xxxx = the code at the end of a youtube link.

So an example


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xl9lQonO_RQ


In this case xxxx = Xl9lQonO_RQ

So put that code surrounded by the youtube brackets. Aso make sure there are no spaces. The example wont work because I made it up, but its the concept that matters. So in the first youtube, add brackets as well so it looks like this. [YOUTUBE]

Or simply go into editor mode, click the youtube symbol and copy the xxxx portion in the middle.
