This building is 592 feet according to SSP

But it has a great facade!

According to CTBUH it's not... maybe SSP hasn't caught up on the news yet: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=125

The glass is really some of the best I've seen anywhere, and the little fins add for a nice effect. I can understand how some people who haven't seen the quality of the glass won't appreciate it, but this tower will have almost no impact on the skyline. You're going to have to go out of your way to get a photo of the skyline with this in it.

This sentence encapsulates why I love NYC. When a 550 ft building is virtually invisible, that's when I'm happy haha. Unless of course it's a beautiful building. I think an excellent example is the Chrysler Building, it's location near the East river makes it virtually impossible to see from Jersey, and it's a 1050 ft tall building. That's unheard of, I don't so much mind it, but it's sad that such a majestic building isn't seen.

The cladding looks good when it's sunny, but is quite dull/foreboding when the weather isn't so nice.

Full update/new twitter!

Nice shot man... I liked this picture (your blog), where we can have a better sense of the size of the building on the street.



Soon you could take a picture of the street with the building rising in the background (this and 1715 Broadway)? If possible try to catch him in the same frame Hearst Tower... To get a better idea of ​​its size compared with its neighbors. It would be nice...

Looks like it is winning the race with its neighbor, but not for long:

Thanks & will do!

It's definitely much more noticeable now, and I'm actually surprised at the presence it will exert on 8th Avenue. The cladding is less than impressive though, and I have a bad feeling it'll look worse as it keeps rising.

Hey, thanks for the reply!

He will stay nice in 8th Ave, though a bit smaller than the Hearst tower.

Strongly dislike the cladding on this one, it gets worse as it gets further up.

The cladding seems pretty reminiscent of the old 1 World Trade Center.
