One can slowly but surely realise how thin this tower will be. Amazing project with far too little up dates.

It's starting to peak its head above its neighbors. Now that it's becoming more visible from more places, the updates will come more often.

You know you're pushing the architectural/engineering envelope when a U/C tower honestly still seems impossible.

I felt similarly about 432 when it was rising, and my brain has since adjusted to how thin that tower is, but I just cannot wrap my head around this thing rising over 1400 feet. It's a thrill to see it happening anyway, in defiance of all logic.

I donīt really find 432 P Av. THAT slim tbh. I have expected it to look much more fragile than it does. But I am sure that this one will surely blow minds away.

Wow its already rising quite fast This is so exciting. This is the best tower going up in NYC imo (even better than verre), can't wait to see the first bits of cladding.
