This construction seems pretty simple, I would expect it to be close to break some construction speed record, at least for the structure.

Twice in my life I've lived in a place that had a window in the shower. Thinking about it now, I probably spent more time looking out of that window than any other window in the house.

My guess is that the showers were not placed in front of the windows because it ruins the clean lines of those square windows, that it was done for purely aesthetic reasons. Unless the ultra-rich take more baths than us commoners, this seems like the only logical explanation.
In a bath you sit down, i.e. your nether region isn't being shown to the whole city while bathing in front of those windows. (Even if the windows can't be seen through from the outside most people would still feel uncomfortable while showering.)

If you look, you will see a render that shows the view from the shower. It looks just like a marble floor and some glass, but the shower is about 1-2 meters from the window with nothing in front but open space. Perfect!

That view would be awesome. Seeing as how this is well past 1,400' and that perspective appears to be made right at the top of the ESB's formal mast, I'm sure more than a couple people will be able to enjoy said view on the upper floors . Fortunate for them!

Really liked the windows as many mentioned. Also, looking to those amazing renders the windows seem to have "space" where you can sit basically beside the window...and imagine being there reading a book, listening to music, whatever...man, if I was bloody rich...

It is going to be weird to have a view looking down at the Empire State Building. It's about time.

Thanks for the pictures.

For those of us who spend hours watching the web cam it is a reality check to see how differently things look in person or with actual photographs.

BTW, on the renders and price issue - keep in mind that those renders are from the top floor if not THE top floor. That view will cost a lot more than 4.95 million.

Nice pics, but without colour it's harder to make out details.
