The underlying reasons for the Manhattan skyline "gap" are fascinating, as are the arguments for preserving those historic districts vs. developing them with skyscrapers to join the LM and Midtown skylines... but surely there are more appropriate threads in which to discuss them.

a little off-topic discussion is not going to hurt anyone.

Is the cladding/facade going to stick out like that on the corner?

It seems the west side section has topped out and now it's just the skinny tower portion left to climb to the top!

Is that the actual color of the glass on the CPT or is it being covered?

If it did probably cost, although I'm not sure that's set in stone yet.

Hemisphere's Tallest Skyscraper Will Have a "Village Green" & Pool Deck Designed by HMWhite

Hemisphere's Tallest Skyscraper Will Have a "Village Green" & Pool Deck Designed by HMWhite

Quote:
While the city’s latest skyscraper boom is pushing well-heeled buyers
higher and higher into the sky, many still covet their shared spaces and a little patch of grass closer to the ground. For you lonely billionaires yearning for that sense of community and Kumbaya sanctuaries within your high-rise aeries, Extell’s Central Park Tower has got you covered. Perched along a low-floor setback of the 130-floor building, HMWhite has shaped an intimate common gathering space to serve as the residents’ “personal backyard.” The landscape firm, handled the New York Times' lobby gardens and the terraces of Brooklyn’s current tallest tower, HUB, and Related’s MiMa. Sharing the belief that design intelligence inspires social engagement and positive civic behavior, for Central Park Tower they specify passive and active recreational areas to “foster a strong sense of community and common fellowship.” A central open lawn will serve as a common gathering space and accommodate flexible uses while garden walls and a landscape framework will organize a sequence of garden rooms and relaxation areas.
