This tower desperately needs more attention from construction photographists.

Probably 131 W 45th St. A decent 550 footer. Link, can't find a thread on SSC.

The bling building: A review of the Gem Tower
A jazzy surface — but not architectural form — will distinguish the International Gem Tower
March 01, 2012
By James Gardner

"...Into this mix now comes the International Gem Tower, a 34-story colossus designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill that has just topped out, and is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year..."

180m. Such a tragedy, a beautiful cladding like this deserves to be seen and not hidden in the the concrete jungle...
Btw just count the floors (see latest pics posted) und you'll see that the tower won't grow anymore.
