The black one?

It really does not look 140 feet shorter than that. Maybe it's the angle.

The floors are very large so the building still maybe is 590 feet, it's not much shorter than the 600 foot black tower and the 630 WR grace building. It could be the angle though

Emporis and CTBUH both have this listed as 460. Having seen this in person, there's no way it's 590, just no way. It's the perspective of those photos that make it look comparable, height wise, to the Grace Building.

Extell is close to construction on a new 21 story hotel across the street. But on to a great photo, thanks to Derek2k3 for finding this stunning shot on WNY.

Looks much better once all the cladding was put on.
So... it's nearly completed! When I joined, it was halfway up. But I don't know if 250W55th street was even above ground when I started

That pic looks more like a render than a render itself.
