Went by there today. The sign on the building says it will be 38 floors, not 40.

How many more floors do they have left to complete this? I would assume they are close to topping out.

Looks like they're about 4-6 floors from topping out from the looks of babybackribs' newest update. With the pace they've been going, they could top this out in 4 weeks, construction is flying on this.

Maybe 38 usable floors, and over two mechanical...

I dont mind a tall box, but it must have personality at least. This one fails.

This one can't compete with other towers going up in NYC, but I don't think it's a fail.

This fine air panorama is from the One57 thread, but the 250W 55th construction looks eye-catching as well.
Unfortunatelly, this one will stop rising soon. I count 32 floors above the podium -
adding 2 base floors, it's 34 right now with indeed 4 more to come.

New pic, I swear this building is very shiny. I think it will look much better when completed than what the dull renders look like

Reflection of Hearst Tower gives a nice touch to that picture.

Jeez babyback and woon, you two did the full rundown of west Midtown projects the past few days, thanks for sharing. It looks like this has another 4 or 5 floors and it'll top out. Side note, the glass on 1715 Bway looks good too.

I work on 53rd/6th so these projects are very convenient to photograph, especially 250 W 55th and 1715 Broadway!

Still looks like it's got another 4 floors to go, give or take a floor. This'll be topped out in no time though. Thanks for the updates.

Crazy, I was there one year ago and nothing was there. Now there is a tower up taller then any in my city. Amazing!
