It's not topped out yet. You can see supports for new columns on the roof. Maybe two floors left, or one height jump.

Boxy buildings are the very essence of New York City. Nobody wants New York to turn into Dubai, with fancy or tacky designs.

If it's topped out, then why is there a piece of steel sticking out of a corner? It looks like a support for more steel...

I like it a lot. I like this kind of glass simple boxes.
It blends in perfectly.
