I walked by during lunch. The glass is dark and somewhat reflective. It is fflush with the building. However, There clearly will be some sort of casing around the periphery of the glass that meets the concrete.

Currently my desktop background and one of my favorite NYC shots ever. But wouldn't mind seeing a tall, slender addition.

That Wallpaper video gives a pretty detailed look at the frame around the windows. I hadn't noticed before, but it looks like the gap is wider below the windows than it is on the sides and above:

Anyone venture a guess as to why that might be, or do we think that's purely aesthetic?

So maybe they will just leave the gap unfilled. If you walk by, it's visible.

I hope they do, I like the gaps breaking up the facade. My concerns with those early renders had to do with the monotony of a perfectly flat surface, but Viñoly has clearly worked in a lot of subtle texture. Can't wait to see this thing in person.

I doubt it. 30 more stories (asuming average of 1 per week) at 15 feet each gives 450 feet which when added to the current height gives 700 or 750 feet.

It will be prominent by that point on the skyline but not a supertall.

I hope not, that would be heaven for birds. They won't let the crap fall all over the white concrete and those pricy penthouses.

As to the Chrysler, for me it doesn't matter that the spire is hollow. It is very thin and has no occupied floor in itself so I don't count it towards roof height
When you look from the interior, the final platform exists in the top section of the cupola (1 triangle per side), the 4 interior walls go up and meet each other much higher in the spire. That final level of the crown and the spire are uniform from the interior. Pay close attention to this short clip from the interior and you should see what I'm talking about if I remember correctly. Now, whether you choose to use the interior or exterior appearance in your judgment is up to you, I don't really care. Hope the video is helpful.

And then you have to remember that by the end of the year, we'll still have the entire upper half of the building to go and you'll realize just how incredibly tall this building is!

Thanks for posting, that's a very interesting video. It reminds me of Burj Khalifa's spire, which is hollow as well. I wouldn't count it to roof height, but it definitely is a very interesting place to see

And so is the last change to look onto a floor gone, or you want to use the Park Ave cam.

They should just move the 57th street cam on to the top of the tower crane support. That tends to stay above the forms and will give consistent views of the action. It seems such an obvious thing to do I am hopefull they will do it.

Nice render thank you!

Walked by this morning...several truck loads of materials lined up ready to be unloaded...more scaffolding/floor supports, big load of rebar, and a truck load of windows! Sun was shining on the one installed window without covering
and the glass is quite clear with a distinct blue-green cast to it. (you could seen the color clearly as the sun shone on corner column behind the glass) Kind of like pool water...very beautiful.
