I'm convinced that the diamonds on the e-w facades will be illuminated at night, which will be utterly spectacular.

I notice that all of the terrace, amenity spaces are enclosed. Should be as spectacular as those of 425 Park.

I can't believe I figured out the design by looking ar 3 images. I'm updating the 3d model by adding all of the bracing now

It would be better if the top was just a continuation of the rest of the tower- a box. Infinitely improved right away, and a contrast to the skinny towers and spires going up like Chase Manhattan Plaza in 1950.

If NYYimby's scoop is legit (and there's no reason to think it's not given what we've seen so far), this will be a new icon on the skyline. I hope that the bracing is the copper'y color of what we've seen. It's unique and gorgeous and reminds me of 45 Broad.

It's crazy how high some of those ceilings are, but hey, it's a 57 story tower that's about as high as the Sears to the roofline.

Those sky gardens look amazing though, would love to hang out there

Impressive work! I was doubtful but you where right on. This tower and the one with the double spire look so nice in the skyline, what tower is that?
