Great progress, i literally can't wait for this tower to be complete!!! Its very under noticed! The developer needs to do a bit more press releases and gain more media attention.

I'm quite sure it will be noticed by the billionaires in this world. They don't need a media frenzy.

Also because it's 400m+ tall. I don't think something that big needs to work hard at 'media attention' the same way Mt Everest doesn't need to work hard to get on the cover of Giant Mountains Weekly.

Great Mountains Weekly's Forum is awful ... its full of people that say that only rock height not ice height should matter ... and people that argue Ice Height is the right way to measure a mountain.

Only rock height matters... Ice height is cheating... So, I can have a hill of 500 meters and just put 3000 meters of ice on top of it and call it a 3500-meter mountain?

When you climb it you're climbing the ice not the rock ...

Still, ice can be chipped or melted away, and is therefore not a permanent part of the mountain.

A volcano can blow its top and throw rock off of the top too :-).

Or an earthquake can cause a landslide :-).

Shadows on Central Park. I love the tall buildings, but I also love Central Park. This photo is proof that the shadows certainly do fall over a large swath of the park when the winter sunlight would be nice for the thousands of non 1% people using the park throughout the course of the day. The fact that you don't see them in this picture could mean that they have chosen to hang out in a sunnier location to the left or right. But they're there.

Can one of you great New York photographers please get a shot showing the entire floor at the base of the cantilever? I want to get a sense of the engineering involved. Thanks in advance!

Maybe from the roof garden at the Met, or somewhere in that direction.

It doesn't take much to imagine the end. I do love the rest of the building and I do think it compliments that old NYC style. That base though -- just god awful and repulsive. I mean not as bad as One 57, but its pushing it.
