Shots from earlier today

Look who's there...


The mightiness


The home stretch


Look at all the skyscrapers around


Mighty


The base makes it look even more mysterious and mighty, Gotham-style


What now, wirednewyork?


Wow this photo sucks. Here it looks like some ******* Moon Glorious. In real life it looks plain old glorious.


Come inside


And now for the #th time I get almost the same shot as Carlos, accidentally


Reconstruction on some lowrise across the street to the south

I would have loved to have seen two 1000' versions of these on the southern tip of Manhattan.

For those of you familiar with the project: Will the facade be completed by mid to late August? Thats when I will be visiting NYC and Id really like to photograph this building with the tower facade completed. I appreciate any info you can give me.

Keep in mind that the building isn't completed until the crane and scaffolding is removed and the interior is is finished, otherwise it still u/c.

I understand that it wont be completed for some time. For the sake of my photographs though I was hoping the facade would be done so it would appear to be completed. Much like TowersNYC's pic. At a glance the building looks finished.

Foster (his colleage actually) really need to put more efforts into the design. Heart tower is in some way a rectangular copy cat version of the tower in london.
