That's cool but it looks old, judging by 220 CPS.

Few moments ago. The stench between this building and Steinway was horrible.

Yes, it's a protective film. In June, I passed by in the back and saw half of a panel without the film and it looked just like the renderings, very clear/transparent and sleek



Edit: Here's my post and photos from June:

Passed by this weekend and saw a little bit of the curtain wall exposed (without the opaque covering that's currently covering it), only had my cell phone on me, but it looked great and sleek in person!

Nice. The base was very overwhelming. The front of this building is going to be great to stand under!

Yeah, it looks good. It's going to look better than One57 and 432Park in my opinion. It's a glass box but it isn't bland.
