Completion date is set for June 2006.

BTW, the ghost skyscraper in the back is some residential tower, not the TWC.

Interesting building immediately to its left in the final picture in the post before the last one...the international style looking building, bulky and oddly shaped, looks like a PSFS sort of with the attached mechanical coulmns and all...like this building, my fav NYC current project
