While it's no Torre Verre, this tower will look stunning, together with the following towers currently planned for the 57th St/CPS corridor:

One 57,
225 W 57th,
Torre Verre,
250 E 57t,
105 W 57th,
425 Park, and
220 CPS.

Absolutely godawful. I thought the civilized world has grown out of boring, perfectly rectangular boxes two decades ago, and it's so tall and slender and lonely that from afar it'll look like someone rammed a pencil into the NYC skyline. The only way to save this is to cut 300 feet or so off it, but that'll never happen.

^Don't worry, with the new developments and proposals coming along in this area thus building will be surrounded by a forest if supertalls. It may only look out if place for a couple years at most.

I biked around and checked in on probably a dozen sites and the only site that definitely had workers on site was 51 Astor, so yeah I assume today's a day off as well.
