Yesterday & full update: http://newyorkyimby.blogspot.com/201...dway-gets.html

I think it's either topped-out or almost there at this point. Maybe 2 more floors?

End of May will do it

I've lost count on the number of floors (difficult to count from street level), but they are due to top out by the end of May.

This one really shot up in a hurry! Looking forward to seeing the cladding all the way up.

So this building will be roughly the same height as Hearst Tower (it's 5 ft. shorter) from that Hudson skyline view.

The cladding on this one is very attractive. This is what I had been hoping the cladding on 300 N LaSalle in Chicago would have turned out like, but they opted for a greener glass with smaller mullions. This is beautiful.

The cladding looks phenomenal - and seems to be rising very quickly as the steel did.

In Manhattan, ‘Topping Out’ a New Office Building



May 21, 2012
By Laura Kusisto

Quote:
Microsoft Corp. and two law firms are among the tenants who have eyed Boston Properties’ 40-story office tower project in Manhattan, which passed a milestone last week on its way to becoming the first new Midtown office building in three years. The 1.1 million square foot tower, known as 250 W. 55th St., was “topped out” last week, meaning the last beam was placed at the top of the building.

Now Boston Properties is hoping to lease it up before its scheduled opening in 2014. About 20% of its space already is spoken for by law firm Morrison Foerster. Microsoft would be a great get. The software giant is looking for space for its New York office, which is now on Sixth Avenue. Microsoft also is looking at other possibilities besides 250 W. 55th St., including 51 Astor Place, according to people familiar with the matter.

Those shots really convey just how skinny this building is. It's also nice to see Fordham's dorm/law school making an impact finally, although it won't be that tall.
