I would say about twice as high as it is today.
I think that by october it should surpass Park Ave. Tower (the pyramid one) and by the end of the year each of these buildings.
BTW a new crane jump taking place.

There are some uncovered window photos in the thread. I won't re-post them, though, because people sometimes get all bent out of shape if you re-post their photos without credit, and I don't have time to write in the name of every member who posted every picture I save.

What the duck do you mean with ''all the other buildings''?
I suppose you mean the surrounding towers.

Would like to visit NYC around Easter next year.
Do you think it will be topped out by then ?

No chance, by Christmas it'll probably be around 200m?

then by Easter, probably around 250m

If everything goes to plan, I'm hopefully going to New York either Easter or summer next year

I think it will be way higher than 250m by then, maybe 300. There are 4 months between Christmas and Easter.

you have a point there! i guess it'll rise around the same amount from Christmas to Easter, as from around now till Christmas
Let's hope winter weather doesn't slow it down

This baby is rising at an incredible rate. The view from atop of "The Rock" is going to be awesome.

It's not like I expected any useful answer from robert, but if indeed so many pics of that glass were already posted (not from the webcam), really, nobody can kindly repost it? Then what's this overactive thread for?

How is this thread overactive? Fast construction is going on here.

Thank you sir! At last post of some value. As I thought no pictures of glass were most likely posted here on ssc yet even though apparently some were already posted on ssp. Love the glass - almost transparent with gentle green tint. Really nice. Btw the page at ssp you linked to also consist of some close up renders revealing details of how the facade will look like which I think weren't posted here at ssc yet too. The intervals between glass panel and the concrete gives a really nice effect plus it seems the test panels already installed still consist some white tape on the edges (even those uncovered). Without this tape the glass will most likely look even better

here's the render:

When are you coming to NY, Patycake?

P.S.: It may appear greenish in that photo, but it's not in reality.

Ok I edited your picture out of the jpg so you won't have to deal with credits issues

But I encourage all of you to click the link provided by McSky. Who haven't seen the uncovered window before I edited my post, can see it there in it's full glory
