The apex skin will be my favorite part of this whole thing...

Certainly not to insinuate that any other phase of this historic process attempted to kill me with tedium........

Who are those people. Is that you NYguy?

I wish they would move out of the way. They are distracting me from looking at Verre.

Lol, well they gave us this photo. This building will happen to be among the most photographed for location alone.

Wow this one pic really puts into perspective how close we are to seeing this topped out. By my estimate 4 floors and 40 feet making this one currently a little over 1000 feet tall.

- Wow! That is nice looking. It looks just as good... nay, better than the rendering.

By my read of elevations available on the web, If the framework on the west side of the eastern-most section is topped out, then the middle section has 99' and change to go! The plans also show that the topped out eastern section, (including the apex) is about 950' tall.

There is no spire so what makes up the remaining 100 feet?

I was in Central Park over the weekend for the NYC Half Marathon and it is quite a sight seeing this, Steinway, and the CP tower really making their impact on the skyline.
