unless things changed in the past 24 hours, the stop-work order is still in effect.

What i like the most about this tower is. That we´re gonna have a 29m by 426m wall to look up. All supertalls in that height range, have either organic or setback-ish deisgns, while this goes up all the way, without anything that lesses it´s impact to the eye.

Exactly how I feel. A 426m tall sheer wall with absolutely no interference. Looking up will make you dizzy.

432 Park Avenue: 1,398 feet (426.1 m) floor count 89 Floors

New One World Trade Center: Roof 1,368 ft (417 m) Floor Count 104 floors

WTC Twin Towers:1 WTC: 1,368 ft (417.0 m) Floor Count 110 Floors
2 WTC: 1,362 ft (415.0 m) Floor Count 110 Floors

Wills Tower: Roof (1,450 ft) 442.1 m floor count 108 floors

This is a skinny tower, and why is it so tall and has less floors. Those must be some high ceilings.

Yep, that most be the one he was talking about.
There is also a render of the skyline in 2030, even more mind-blowing.

New York corporate companies need to squeeze in four of this kind of tall building to populate that particular area. Rather than it dangling in the air alone in that section.

It is a master though.And, I love it!

Great job by sbarn. The skyline will look incredible in a couple of years.
