Definetely up and running for the most part as shown in those offices. One of numerious questions I still have about this tower is I wonder when the scaffolding on the street-level will be taken down? Just a question, nothing critical, but just curious... Then again there are lots of loose ends that still need adjustments and to be finished.

When the tower is officially completed they will remove the scaffolding. Technically work isn't scheduled to be completed until sometime this year, which probably won't be too far off.

Official means when there is no longer any work being done.

BTW, they were up working on the scaffolding Friday, so either it'll come down soon, or they have a bit more to do.

Now THAT is an angle I definetly haven't seen it from before...

Makes me think of how cool it would be to look at it from the 77th floor of the Chrysler Building (that being the highest floor of the Chysler) since the view is completely unobstructed. You'd be able to see at lest the top half of it with the BOA being as tall as it is (the current second tallest in NYC).

Bank of America Tower Signs In at Bryant Park



Tuesday, January 26, 2010, by Pete

As if to remind everyone who's in charge, the new-ish Bank of America headquarters at the corner of 42nd Street and Sixth Avenue, aka One Bryant Park, has raised a sign over that busy intersection. Simple letters in stainless steel put Midtown on notice that this 1,200-foot-tall shard of fritted glass, home to waterless urinals and scaryawesome views, is where the money can be found.

Developed by the Durst Organization at a cost of $1 billion (with the help of a big bundle of Liberty Bonds), the project from Cook+Fox Architects broke ground in 2004 and, after entertaining passersby with a few unfortunate incidents, got its first tenants in May 2008. Besides the bankers, this 52-story tower is home to single-starred eatery, Aureole, the re-constructed Henry Miller's Theater and a blockfront of ATMs along the Deuce—perfect for replenishing the purse before perusing the goods at February's final Fashion Week festivities in Bryant Park.

Would have been a nice spot for another observation deck, from the looks of it...

Not only can't I get enough photos of this one, but that last photo is striking for several reasons including the angle from the north in which it is taken! I love the tall, taller, tallest effect in which it has (tall, taller, tallest being the GE Building, then the BOA, then the Empire State Building. Puts it all into the perfect context from that location! Hell, you could even say that with the buildings from the west moving east such as the NYTT, then the Conde Naste, then the BOA, with the tallest finally being the Empire State Building. I know antennas are not included in height, but still it blends in with that scheme perfectly!

Regarding the picture with the Durst Brothers, we could have had an observatory on the 51st floor (810 feet above street level and still higher than the Chrysler's original 71st floor observatory which is at 783 feet above street level) and a possible second observatory on the 58th floor (910 feet). Both of them would offer outstanding views of Times square and put you right in the heart of NYC! Perfect mix of great height and views!!!

What I wouldn't give for a tour of the building...

This actually looks rather good... Thank you very much for all the pictures...

But I will never understand the need to add that spire... some buildings it suits... like Emprie State, Chrysler, Petronas and Burj Khalifa... but not this one.... would have looked better just the glass building ending in the point.
