aaa DAT concrete I like I hope this is the color they'll go with. Pure white is what this tower fits most, best contrasted with dark non reflective glass.

Definitely this

anybody that has doubts should search out some nice white concrete building photos. I've spent the last half hour looking at a few hundred different photos and i think white will be stunning

I mis that on the top of the building with a spire on top but it isnt.
Is this the Top of the bldg, or just an original design that got defeated.. Because the renders show a comple square to roof. I quoted the wrong user,, I meant to post ericofferins photo on 239.. If that's the top that'll look quite nice

White concrete? Ew. This is New York, not Istanbul.

And that's why dull concrete-gray option fits it better?

Something with less white glare would look good, so a more grayish tone would suit it far better.

I agree with you. It should be more gray. Dark gray would be perrfect in my opinion

wow, the core looks like it jumped up another level. Though the higher walls seem to be inside the footprint of the lower walls.

Thoughts, anyone?

EDIT: Never mind, I guess those are forms, rather than concrete. That explains why they would appear inside of the lower concrete.

This is being build close to where I live. I think my eyes would commit suicide when this was a skyscraper.

By itself it sticks out but put it in a crowded midtown and I think it would be cool.

My guess is this weekend. Looks like 56th street is cleaned and 2 traffic lanes are open, looks like there won't be any bigger delivery in the next few days.
